When it comes to your teeth, Alaska Smiles provides the highest level of precision and satisfaction in Alaska.
A Missing Tooth Can Create Problems
When a tooth is lost, there can be progressive and adverse effects to the surrounding and opposing teeth that should be reviewed with your dentist. If the empty space left behind is not occupied with an implant, the structure of the mouth will alter as a result. This will lead to gradually misaligned teeth and eventually cause other teeth to become cracked and infected.
Dental Implants Offer a Permanent Solution
Dental implants solve the threat to gradual teeth misalignment. They provide a permanent replacement that you can enjoy for many decades, perhaps for the rest of your life. Each year, more than 500,000 Americans are fitted with dental implants. They 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.

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.
