Dental Implants

Missing teeth can damage your appearance and your oral health.

Prosthodontist Dr. David Casagrande can replace missing teeth with dental implants to restore your smile and aid in jawbone retention.

River Valley Advanced Dental and Implant Center in Boise, Idaho, specializes in restorations and can renew your smile with dental implants.

Why Choose Dental Implants Over Traditional Prosthetics?

A Lifelong Investment

With the dental proper care, implant-supported restorations can last 40 years or longer. Your restoration may need to be replaced occasionally, but the titanium implant themselves can provide a lifetime of benefits. 

Retain Your Jawbone

Losing teeth causes the jawbone to atrophy, giving your face a sunken appearance. Implants prevent jawbone atrophy by stimulating bone growth in the jaw. 

Better Function

Traditional prosthetics like dentures can slip out of place when you speak or eat. Prosthetics anchored by implants do not slip out of place. Patients can eat a wide variety of food without worrying about slippage.

The Advantages of Having a Prosthodontist

While general dentists are good at replacing a missing tooth, they may not have a wide range of restorative treatments. A prosthodontist is a dentist who specializes in prostheses and working with missing teeth. 

As a prosthodontist, Dr. Casagrande has significant experience fitting crowns, bridges, dentures, implants, and other restorative solutions. Using high-quality materials and the latest technology, Dr. Casagrande can deliver a prosthetic that will blend in with your natural teeth and enhance your smile.

A missing tooth can cause embarrassment, as well as difficulty chewing and speaking. While traditional prosthetics will fill in the gaps in your teeth, they lack the strong functionality that comes with dental implants. 

As a specialist in prosthodontics, Dr. Casagrande will create a comfortable implant-supported restoration that is secure and matches your natural tooth. The titanium posts provide a lifetime of benefits, eliminating the need for bone grafts and other dentistry treatments.

For five to six years me and my family have been very happy with Dr. Casagrande. I actually needed a tooth pulled before, and the procedure went very well. The relationship I have formed with the staff is great, I would recommend them to anyone.

Do You Have Significant Tooth Loss? Consider All-On-4® Dental Implants

All-on-4 Dental Implants

Why Patients Prefer All-on-4 

Faster Treatment

Placing an implant requires separate surgeries to place the titanium implant and the abutment. Each phase requires its own healing period. All-on-4 dentures are secured by four titanium implants, negating the need for multiple healing periods. After surgery at our Boise, ID, dentistry office, patients leave with a full arch of functional teeth. 

Better Stability 

All-on-4 holds your denture in place, giving you better stability when eating and speaking. While traditional dentures can be slippery and reposition unexpectedly, All-on-4 functions similarly to your natural teeth. 

No Need for Preparation

Placing titanium posts requires patients have a specific minimum of tissue in their jawbone. With All-on-4 dentures, patients with low jawbone density can get a new set of teeth without having to undergo a bone grafting procedure. 

How Do Dental Implants Work?


Dental implants have life-changing results, improving your ability to eat and speak. Dr. Casagrande combines his cosmetic dentistry knowledge with his restorative dentistry experience, giving patients natural-looking replacements. 
Whether you lose one tooth or all of your teeth, the closest thing to your natural tooth roots are Dental Implants Billings MT These devices can be tailored to the patient's needs, anchoring dental crowns, dental bridges, and dentures securely to your jawbone. Prosthodontist David Casagrande of River Valley Advanced Dental & Implant Center can help you determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants using advanced screening technology at his Billings, MT, and Boise, ID, offices.

Consultation 

Your teeth and health history will be reviewed by Dr. Casagrande. If you meet the criteria and they align with your goals, your dental implant surgery will be scheduled for the near future.

Implant Surgery

Local anesthesia is applied to the treatment site before small incisions are made into the gums. The titanium post is placed into the gums and sutured shut.

Healing Period

During the first healing period, the titanium post begins to fuse with your jawbone. This recovery period can last four to six months. 

Abutment Placement

During your second surgery, an abutment is connected to the implant. The abutment is used to connect your replacement tooth to the implant. 

Additional Healing Period

After the abutment is attached to the dental implant, a second healing period is necessary. 

Attaching the Restoration

Once the gum tissue around the abutment heals, Dr. Casagrande will attach a denture, crown, or bridge. The prosthetic will match the color and shape of your natural tooth.  

The process of placing implants and attaching prosthetics takes several months. Before the final crown, bridge or denture is applied, patients typically receive a temporary restoration. While this treatment takes longer to complete than traditional options, implant-supported prosthetics are the closest alternative to natural teeth.

Is Dental Implant Surgery Painful?

All surgeries come with some level of discomfort and a healing period. Pain during dental implant surgery can be greatly minimized with general anesthesia and IV sedation. 

If the thought of oral surgery causes dental anxiety, sedation can keep you unconscious while Dr. Casagrande places your implants. The risks involving anesthesia are very small and our team is specially trained to address any complications that may arise.

Paying For Treatment 

Single implants start at $1,600 each. All-on-4 implants start at $12,000. Since each patient is unique and has different needs, dental implant treatment costs vary from case to case. Factors like the number of implants, types of restorations used, and sedation dentistry all influence the price of treatment. 

River Valley Advanced Dental & Implant Center believes every patient should be able to experience the benefits of dental implants. To help make dental implant surgery more affordable, Dr. Casagrande accepts financing options so patients can enjoy the dental care they need. River Valley accepts CareCredit® and LendingClub®, which allows you to pay for treatment through payments.

While the costs for dental implant treatment may seem high, the oral surgery will save patients money over time by reducing the need for more extensive dental care. Missing a tooth causes other teeth to shift and jawbone atrophy. An investment in dental implants will protect your oral health and can be enjoyed for a lifetime. 

"I would do it all over again."

In this prosthodontist review, patient Darrin Johnson explains how he came to River Valley Advanced Dental & Implant Center with severe periodontal disease, bone erosion, and very limited treatment options. Dr. David Casagrande recommended the Promax implant bridge for Darrin's upper and lower arches. Darrin received zygomatic implants in his upper and lower jaws, and after two years, he has a stunning, functional smile that he calls a life-changing investment.
