Innovative Tooth Replacement Options
Dental Implants in Utah
If some of your teeth have fallen out, for whatever reason, you don’t have to despair. We understand that you likely feel less comfortable speaking, eating, and doing other day-to-day activity because you can’t feel confident in your smile. That’s why we offer dental implants as an innovative and comfortable tooth replacement option.
Dental implants are comfortable, durable, and look just like real teeth, unlike other tooth replacement options. If you are a viable candidate for dental implants, Dr. Paul Porter can discuss the implementation process and move forward with the procedure.
Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?
When you meet with one of our dental implant doctors to decide if you would be a good candidate for dental implants, he will look at your jaw structure and make sure that you have enough bone for the procedure.The dental implant procedure first includes placing titanium screws into the jaw to serve as anchors for the artificial tooth or teeth. However, that process should not take place if a patient does not have enough bone in their jaw to support the screws. Once the screws have fused with your jaw bone, then our dentist can place the dental implants.
Our Patients Unanimously Prefer Dental Implants over Dentures and Bridges
Because dental implants are secured and don’t need to be taken out nightly, many of our patients prefer dental implants over dentures and other types of tooth replacement. If you’re unsure about which option you would like best, you can meet with our dental staff to discuss the nature of each option and what it would mean for your lifestyle.
