Dental Implants Available Here
Residents of Anchorage and surrounding areas can eat, smile, kiss, and talk confidently with dental implants. One of the most popular dental procedures in the United States, dental implants retain your face’s natural looks, while promoting bone growth.
Dental Implants – Permanent and Strong
Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. You can live the way you’ve always done before, eating, smiling, talking, laughing, kissing, enjoying the best of what life has to offer without being self-conscious, and not having to worry about your teeth.
Each year, more than 500,000 Americans are fitted with dental implants.
Dental implants look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. You brush and floss them like natural teeth, and they will help retain your face’s natural shape and smile. Implants will last for many decades so long as they are properly cared for, just like natural teeth. Implants actually protect facial bone and prevent jawbone deterioration by stimulating bone growth.
If you’ve had a tooth removed, it is highly advised to replace it with an implant to prevent further bone deterioration.
Dental insurance companies now cover dental implants due to the long term cost effectiveness versus bridges or complications of not replacing an extracted tooth.

Our Dental Implant Process
We start with a full examination of your teeth including 3D images. A hole is drilled into the jawbone and a titanium post (screw) is placed. A process called “osseointegration” begins where the bone fuses with the post. This process may take up to a few months to complete. At that point, the abutment is secured to the post (the small metal attachment). Another 1 to 2 weeks of healing is required.
Impressions of your other teeth are made so that we can build a matching porcelain tooth. Once the healing is complete, the porcelain tooth is permanently fixed to the abutment.
Patients are prescribed medication to guard against discomfort and infection. Throughout the process, we contact you for scheduled visits to make sure osseointegration is progressing well. Once complete, the new porcelain tooth is strong enough to withstand the most forceful chewing and biting, just as with a natural tooth.
Since 2005, Alaska Smiles has performed successful dental implant surgery for thousands of patients throughout Anchorage and surrounding areas. Dental implants are among our most sought-after services among residents in Alaska.
Our commitment to comfort, cleanliness, and fast recovery times is why you can count on Alaska Smiles to provide you with the strongest, and most longest-lasting dental implants you can get in Anchorage.
