Dr. Blake Barney is a Prosthodontist at Idaho Falls Dental Group. Prosthodontics is a dental specialty recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA) that restores or replaces damaged or missing teeth. Having a tooth or multiple teeth missing can result in oral disfunction and discomfort, effect appearance and patient health. Prosthodontics have advanced education and training to come up with a treatment plan that restores oral function and all elements that go into rebuilding a beautiful smile.
This prosthesis is used in special situations for patients who have enough bone in the anterior regions of the lower or upper jaws, but limited amount of bone in the posterior regions and are not candidates for extensive bone grafting.
This implant technique, is the optimal solution for those who have lost or are about to lose all of their upper and/or lower teeth. It's a procedure that comes closest to having a new set of permanent teeth.
Occasionally a patient may become anxious and cannot relax during an office visit. As many as 30% of adults in America are afraid of needles. Sedation dentistry offers these dental patients a safe and effective alternative through sedation dentistry.
There are three forms of conscious sedation that allow a patient to relax and/or become sleepy. Forms of conscious sedation may involve nitrous oxide analgesia, taking an oral medication or receiving medication intravenously.
One of the benefits of sedation dentistry is that it eliminates movement during a periodontal or dental implant procedure. Sedation dentistry relaxes the patient and allows those who might avoid a dental visit a safe and anxiety-free alternative. If you are hesitant about scheduling your next visit, consider sedation dentistry. Ask us for more information, and we will be sure to put your mind at ease.

My hygienist did a good job cleaning my teeth. Dr. Barney was professional and helpful. The office staff was friendly.
My husband has been a patient here since his childhood & didn't want to go to my dentist when we got married 20 years ago. I liked the option of evening & Saturday appointments, so I switched dentists & I ended up loving these guys too! We loved Dr. Chuck & were nervous when he retired, but we are impressed with Dr. Barney! The hygienists are gentle & friendly. The receptionists are friendly. The scheduling & reminders are great! My husband has inherited genetically bad teeth & has had numerous procedures done over the years & they are always upfront about the cost & have been easy to work with. We've never had problems with the work & had to have things redone either! And we never have to wait more than 5 minutes past our appointment time either!
