There is nothing like the confidence a bright, healthy smile can bring to a person. It can be easy to take it for granted–until the worst happens. Whether it’s from a sports injury or a tragic accident, when you lose or damage your teeth, the results can be painful, embarrassing and traumatizing. That is why we are so committed to helping make the dental implant process as convenient, comfortable and affordable as possible for our neighbors in Heber City, UT.
What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are for patients who want to go beyond the traditional choices of dentures or bridges to replace one, some, or all of their teeth that have been damaged or lost for any number of reasons. Dental implants look like a small metal screw that is implanted into your jaw. These screws serve as new roots for new teeth. Some people might use them to replace one tooth or multiple teeth. You can even choose full arches, consisting of as many as eight teeth, or full, implant-supported dentures.
Getting dental implants requires a commitment, as the procedure will most likely need to be completed in phases over a period of a few months. Depending on the condition of your jaw, bone grafting may be required. But this choice can bring life-changing results. Trust our caring team of professionals to help you navigate the dental implant process.
What are the Benefits to Dental Implants?
- If you take good care of them, they can last a lifetime.
- Unlike dentures, you don’t have to take them out to clean them. In fact, you make the choice of whether or not your implants are fixed or removable.
- They don’t depend on other teeth in your mouth for support, which is better for your existing teeth’s long-term health.
- Order the steak or the corn on the cob–you don’t have to worry about your implants becoming loose or moving around in your mouth.
