Dental implants are a revolutionary new way to repair your smile. Implants utilize artificial tooth roots that are set into the mouth the same way a naturally occurring tooth would be. Typically, they’re made of titanium, which triggers new bone growth and permanently anchors the new “tooth” into the jaw. After this phase of osseointegration occurs, a restoration such as a crown, bridge, or denture is anchored on top of the implant. The result is a natural looking, resilient new prosthesis that performs like a natural tooth.
The number of implants that you need will depend on the number of teeth that need to be replaced. However, as few as four to six implants can be used to permanently anchor a full mouth denture or extended bridge.
Benefits of Getting Dental Implants
A dental implant…
- Removes the need from altering or reshaping adjacent teeth, such as when a conventional bridge is used
- Is a more permanent solution and eliminates the need to wear a removable prosthesis that can slip out of place throughout the day
- Can be a lifelong solution which makes it the most cost effective solution available
- Is extremely durable, capable of supporting greater weight than even a natural tooth
- Mimics the appearance, feel, and function of a natural tooth far greater than any other type of restoration.
Your teeth go through a lot for you. Coffee, tea, wine and tobacco leave teeth stained and dull. We here at Chugach Dental believe that you deserve a brilliant smile that can light up a room. That is why we employ the latest in teeth-whitening procedures that can undo the day-to-day damage that can rob you of that radiant smile that awaits you.
We offer two options for whitening, an in-office treatment or a take home version. During your in-office teeth whitening treatment, your dentist will protect your gums and mouth tissues by covering them with a protective gel layer. The dentist technician will then apply a whitening agent to your teeth. Since it can be completed quickly in our dental office, teeth whitening works well for busy schedules.

Teeth Cleaning and Exams
Teeth cleaning is a standard procedure for the removal of tartar, or mineralized plaque, that may develop even with the most careful brushing and flossing regiments. This is especially true for areas that are difficult to reach with routine toothbrushing. This procedure requires a trained dental hygienist. Professional cleaning includes tooth scaling and tooth polishing and debridement if too much tartar has accumulated. This involves the use of various instruments or devices to loosen and remove deposits and harmful bacteria from the teeth.
During a routine dental exam, the dentist or hygienist will clean your teeth and check for cavities and gum disease. This exam is important as it is the first step in helping to evaluate your risk of developing other oral health problems, as well as check your face, neck and mouth for abnormalities that could lead to serious problems if left untreated.
Make sure you book you next cleaning appointment with Chugach Dental.
Periodontal Disease Therapy
Periodontitis, or as it’s more commonly known, gum disease, is a common infection that damages the soft tissue and bone supporting the tooth. Without treatment, the alveolar bone around the teeth is slowly and progressively lost. Microorganisms, such as bacteria, stick to the surface of the tooth and the pockets surrounding the tooth, and they multiply. As the immune system reacts and toxins are released, inflammation occurs. Untreated periodontitis can eventually result in tooth loss. Studies show that it also increases the risk of stroke, heart attack, and other health problems. Periodontal disease is best prevented or treated early. This is why maintaining regular dental check-ups are so important. Start your dental therapy today!
