Dear Patient and family members:

We hope you and your family are in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

We are excited to resume semi-normal working days starting May 4, 2020.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations to insure your safety and that of our staff.

You will see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we are taking to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment or to reschedule your canceled appointment, please call our office 406-252-1078.  

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.

Sincerely,

Ken Bagby and staff

A dental implant can provide unrivaled support for a custom dental crown.

What Causes Tooth Loss? 

Periodontal disease is the number one cause of tooth loss among adults. Patients develop gum disease as a result of poor oral hygiene, unhealthy dietary habits, or lack of routine professional care. In some cases, injury or trauma can cause a tooth to break or fracture and necessitate extraction.  

How Can Dental Implants Prevent Further Issues?

Dental implants are a trusted tooth replacement solution. These small titanium posts are inserted into the jawbone and act as artificial tooth roots. They provide unparalleled support to a variety of restorations, including crowns, bridges, and dentures.

Dental implants and restorations can help you maintain the integrity of your smile.

By mimicking the function of natural teeth from root to crown, implant-supported restorations can stimulate the jawbone and prevent further jawbone atrophy. This process can safeguard you from changes to your facial structure, which is common after sustained tooth loss.  Dental implants can also prevent issues associated with missing teeth such as:

  • Excessive wear 
  • Joint problems 
  • Difficulty eating 
  • Speech complications 

After tooth loss, adjacent teeth can also begin to shift to fill in the empty space. This can disrupt your bite and require more extensive and expensive orthodontic treatment. Dental implants and restorations can help you maintain the integrity of your smile. If necessary, we can also perform bone grafting to improve your candidacy for the procedure. 

Our Approach to Implant Care

We believe our patients deserve the highest level of care. Our unique approach includes three elements: 

Patient Education
We believe that patient education is the cornerstone to a healthy smile. It is our goal to help you understand all of your choices to include not doing anything and the risks associated with each, so you can feel empowered to make the best decisions for your oral health. We will always be transparent with patients regarding their condition, the solutions we can provide, and how to protect their health.
Comprehensive Care
We want to make our treatments as convenient and efficient as possible. When you trust your care to our team, you can rest assured that we will perform all stage of implant treatment to the highest standard.
Comfort with Sedation
We understand that patients experience dental phobia and anxiety, and we do everything we can to put your mind at ease. We offer nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and intravenous (IV) sedation to ensure your comfort during treatment.

Your Health is Our Priority

We truly care about our your health and well-being, and we are dedicated to serving your best interests. Drs. Bagby and Stokke look forward to helping you restore your missing teeth and move towards a healthier future. Contact us online or by phone at (406) 252-1078 to learn more about dental implants and our custom-crafted restorations.
