Understanding Dental Implants

Dental implants are revolutionary restorative options that mimic the natural structure and function of teeth. Unlike traditional solutions like bridges or dentures, implants replace both the root and crown of missing teeth, offering unmatched stability and longevity. By preserving jawbone integrity and preventing further deterioration, implants promote oral health and facial aesthetics.

Ideal candidates for dental implants are individuals with one or more missing teeth or those dissatisfied with conventional dentures. Age is not a limiting factor; however, certain health conditions or lifestyle habits may affect candidacy. Our team evaluates each patient’s unique circumstances to determine suitability for implant treatment, considering factors such as bone density, overall health, and treatment goals.

What’s the Process for Dental Implants?

The journey towards dental implants begins with an initial consultation at Oral & Facial Reconstructive Surgeons of Utah. During this appointment, our experienced team will conduct a comprehensive examination of your oral health. We’ll discuss your medical history, treatment goals, and any concerns you may have regarding dental implants.

This consultation allows us to assess your candidacy for implant treatment and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.

Following the consultation, our team creates a customized treatment plan designed to achieve optimal outcomes. We utilize advanced imaging technology, such as digital X-rays and CT scans, to assess bone density and map out the precise placement of implants.

Throughout the treatment planning phase, we prioritize open communication and patient education, ensuring you feel informed and confident in your decision to pursue dental implants.

Once the treatment plan is finalized, our team assists you with scheduling appointments that accommodate your schedule and preferences.

The next step in the process is the surgical placement of dental implants by our experienced oral surgeons. Using the latest techniques and technology, we ensure precise placement of implants to optimize stability and integration with the surrounding bone.

Depending on your treatment plan, temporary restorations may be placed to maintain aesthetics and function during the healing process.

Following implant placement, our team provides thorough post-operative care instructions to support optimal healing and recovery. We schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and address any concerns you may have. Our commitment to personalized care extends beyond the surgical phase, as we partner with you throughout the entire implant journey to ensure long-term success and satisfaction.

At Oral & Facial Reconstructive Surgeons of Utah, our collaborative approach between oral surgeons and restorative dentists ensures comprehensive and cohesive care at every stage of the implant process. By combining our expertise and working closely together, we deliver superior outcomes and exceptional patient experiences. From initial consultation to final restoration, you can trust our dedicated team to guide you towards a healthier, more confident smile with dental implants.

What is Bone Grafting and When is it Needed?

Bone grafting is a procedure that restores or augments bone in the jaw and may be necessary in cases where the jawbone has deteriorated due to tooth loss, gum disease, trauma, or other factors.

If you’ve experienced jawbone loss, then our oral surgeons may recommend a bone graft if you’re planning on getting dental implants or a full arch restoration. Dental implants require a strong and healthy jawbone for stability and long-term success. By augmenting the jawbone through bone grafting, patients can ensure adequate support for dental implants and achieve optimal outcomes in their oral health and smile restoration journey.

How Much Are Dental Implants?

Determining the cost of dental implants involves various factors like the number of implants needed and any additional procedures required. During your consultation, we provide a detailed breakdown of costs, including implants, preparatory procedures, and anesthesia fees, ensuring transparency in pricing.

While dental implants represent a significant investment, they offer long-term benefits like improved oral function and aesthetics. Our team is dedicated to helping you explore financing options to make treatment affordable within your budget.

Additionally, we provide expert guidance in navigating dental insurance claims, ensuring you maximize your benefits and receive the care you need. Contact us today to schedule your consultation and take the first step toward restoring your smile confidently.
