Dakota Dental is proud to serve its surrounding communities and help people achieve healthy smiles! The Dakota Dental team was pleased to provide advanced dental treatment to eighty-eight-year-old Wendell Carrier, who served in the U. S. Air Force during the Korean War.
After hearing about Dakota Dental’s Veterans Day event from State Representative Cindy Pugh, Wendell contacted the Apple Valley dental clinic to learn more about getting a dental implant for his central upper front tooth.
Made from synthetic materials, dental implants are a comfortable, natural-looking solution to fixing a missing tooth. Implants are attached to the jawbone in the root area of the gum, making the implant strong and secure. The best part is dental implants are designed to look and feel like real teeth, and they blend in naturally with the rest of your smile. Not only are they strong and natural-looking, but they’re also comfortable and can restore the force of biting like a natural tooth can.
Installing dental implants is overall a minimally invasive procedure, and 90% of treatments are performed using novocaine rather than general anesthesia. This allows a faster and easier patient recovery, so you can get back to smiling in no time.
After consulting with Dr. Bennett Isabella at Dakota Dental, Wendell received a dental implant and a dental crown to fill in the gap his missing tooth had left. After the 90-minute procedure, Wendell had a new tooth—and a big smile!
“This is going to make me happy not just today, but for the rest of my life,” says Wendell.
The Dakota Dental team is dedicated to giving patients healthy smiles that boost their confidence and improve their overall health and wellness. To learn more about how dental implant can benefit your smile or to schedule a consultation, contact our Apple Valley dental clinic today!
