Dr. Bakke has over 35 years of experience in providing the highest level of patient care. This commitment places him at the forefront of implant dentistry. He places the implants and the final restorations so his patients receive total comprehensive care in one office. This can be more convenient with a smoother completion because patients do not have to travel to multiple offices.

Dr. Bakke provides each patient with a very thoughtfully engineered treatment plan incorporating not only his surgical experience, but other clinical aspects as well. His study of neuromuscular dentistry is applied to assure correct jaw position and bite alignment. Recognizing patients’ desires for aesthetically pleasing smiles as well as highly functioning teeth, Dr. Bakke applies his extensive cosmetic training to create these beautiful smiles.

This extensive background has earned Dr. Bakke a reputation for excellence. He was a chief clinical instructor at the Las Vegas Institute (LVI) for Advanced Dental Studies where he educated dentists from around the world.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a permanent alternative to dentures and bridges. They replace both the root and the body of a missing tooth (or multiple teeth.)A titanium steel peg is surgically implanted into the jaw, and a porcelain crown sits on top of the peg to create a functioning tooth. They are more comfortable than most other treatments for missing teeth and they address bone loss unlike any other method of replacement.

Reasons for Dental Implants

  • Replace a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth
  • Eliminate the need for dentures/bridges
  • Prevent bone loss
  • Allow a natural looking and feeling tooth to ensure worry-free eating, laughing and smiling
