Choosing a Dental Implant Dentist
An experienced dental implant dentist can restore full health and function to your smile while also giving you a healthy, charismatic new look. Dr. David Casagrande of River Valley Advanced Dental & Implant Center invites you to learn more about the qualities you should look for in an implant dentist. We have offices in Billings MT, Fargo ND, and Boise ID, to serve you.
High-Quality Dental Implants
The dentist you choose should use high-quality hardware. To deliver the highest quality care to his patients, Dr. Casagrande exclusively offers Nobel Biocare® implants, which are known for their stability and durability. Nobel Biocare offers several bone-level and tissue-level dental implants, allowing Dr. Casagrande to tailor each treatment plan to the unique needs of the individual. Dr. Casagrande explains why he chooses Nobel Biocare implants:
“There are three levels of dental implants offered today: low-, medium- and high-quality. There are approximately four or five high-quality companies that have established excellent quality craftsmanship an excellent quality component in the dental implant industry. The very best of those is the leader in the world, which is known as Nobel Biocare, the only company I work with. Low-quality implants are cheap with no validity or long-term statistical analysis of success.
"Many of the high-quality implant companies all charge a similar fee for the best implants. The medium-quality implants are approximately 50 percent of the cost compared to high-quality implants. The cheap implants can be as little as $97 each from foreign countries. This may sound appealing, but many patients have no understanding of what they are receiving in terms of the quality of craftsmanship of the implant itself, or of the experience and capabilities of the doctor placing that implant.”
Expertise and Experience
Your dentist should have extensive training, as well as years of experience in rehabilitating patients' smiles with dental implants. Dr. Casagrande is an expert in the field of prosthodontics who has been in practice for more than 35 years. He is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, earning a Master of Science degree in prosthodontics. At the urging of a prominent North Dakota oral surgeon, Dr. Casagrande expanded his services to dental implants, in addition to offering prosthodontics. Since the mid-1980s, Dr. Casagrande has been regarded as an authority on dental implants.
Your implant dentist should use advanced digital technology to plan your treatment. Dr. Casagrande uses advanced equipment including:
- 3-D imaging
- CAD-CAM technology
- Digital computed tomography
Your implant dentist should take time to listen to your concerns, assess your needs, and tailor treatment according to this information. Dr. Casagrande understands that each patient has unique and varying needs. Therefore, each patient can expect customized procedures designed to deliver a stellar smile and optimal oral health.
At our practice, we believe that each patient is worthy of respect, undivided attention, and the most efficient, effective procedures. TO maintain patient comfort, Dr. Casagrande offers oral conscious sedation, IV sedation, and general anesthesia.
