What are Dental Implants?

If you have spaces in your smile, it can age you beyond your years, but with the convenience of dental implants, there is no sense for you to endure the embarrassment of a missing a tooth.

Dental implants are used to repair decayed and harshly damaged teeth. They are composed of two parts, the alloy post anchored to the jawbone, which substitutes the tooth’s root, and the restoration, which replaces the tooth itself. A dental restoration (porcelain crowns, dental bridge, partial denture, etc.) is secured to the top of the tooth implant, restoring your congenital smile and giving you the performance and support you need to chew, laugh and smile adequately.

Dental implants can give you a beautiful smile.

Benefits of Implant Dentistry

Living with missing teeth can embarrassing because it hinders the way you eat and interferes with your natural smile. Nearby teeth may drift, bone loss can happen at the source of the missing tooth and you may be limited to specific foods. Implant dentistry from Allan S. Thomas DMD can improve your dental health by allowing you to eat normally, smile with ease and brush and floss routinely, just as you would with natural teeth.

Dental Implants Procedure

The titanium alloy implant, which operates as the new tooth’s root, is set into the space left by your natural tooth root. After the jaw and gums have repaired and settled, a tailor-made dental crown is then placed into the implant. Once healed, you’re ready to eat, drink and flaunt your smile. If you feel apprehensive about this treatment, check out the dental sedation options we offer to West Jordan, Utah.

Dental implants take time to finish because the dental implant fastening needs time to cement to the bone before the replacement tooth can be attached to it. Every person and procedure is different, so recovery time varies between a few weeks to a few months, or longer.
