Dental Implants

“Our focus is not only to treat patients, but to inform and educate them as to what dentistry has to offer. We strive to open the lines of communication to ensure that each patient has their needs and wants met.”

Overview

Dental implants have been around for a long time, and yet many people are still unfamiliar with them. Whether you are experiencing tooth loss, tooth decay, gum disease, or other dental issues, dental implants could give you back your smile and confidence. With our experienced dentist, Dr. Ben Young, we can help restore your smile with dental implants here at Intermountain Smiles in Sandy, Utah.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium or Zirconia. They are surgically placed into your jawbone to provide a stable base for a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are a long-term and effective solution to tooth loss; they can look and feel like your natural teeth.

Can Anyone Get Dental Implants?

Dental implants may be the solution for you if you have missing or damaged teeth. Whether it’s due to injury, gum disease, or other dental issues, dental implants can help restore your smile and your confidence. However, certain conditions must be met before you can get dental implants. These include having adequate bone density in your jawbone and good overall health.

The Dental Implant Procedure

The dental implant procedure involves several stages.

1. Consultation:

To ensure you are the right fit for a dental implant, Dr. Ben Young will thoroughly examine your mouth and determine if you are a candidate.

2. Procedure:

If you are a candidate for dental implants, we will begin the next step. We will surgically place the implant into your jawbone. This process is done under local anesthesia to ensure full comfort for our patients.

3. Healing Process:

After the surgery, you must undergo several months of healing. This process is where the implant must fuse to your jawbone and become a permanent part of your mouth.

4. New Smile:

Several months later, you can return, where Dr. Ben Young will attach a connector post to your implant. The connector post will support a replacement tooth like a dental crown or bridge.

Aftercare for Dental Implants

Dental implants usually require very little maintenance but good home care is just as important as the rest of your mouth. To ensure the health of your new smile, we strongly encourage doing the following:

Whether you lose teeth due to tooth decay or an injury, you must take care of your smile through proper oral hygiene. Brush your teeth twice daily and floss once daily to ensure you are brushing away the germs in your mouth.
Visit Dr. Ben Young and his team at our dental office in Sandy, Utah, for regular check-ups. They are essential to maintaining and preventing oral health concerns from occurring. At your check-ups, we will also do a professional cleaning to help your smile stay bright and healthy of any plaque that regular brushing cannot remove.
After receiving dental implants, it is essential to avoid smoking as it can lead to implant failure and damage.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer several benefits over other tooth replacement options. They are long-lasting, durable, and look and feel much like your natural teeth. They also help prevent bone loss in your jaw, which can occur when you have missing teeth. Dental implants have a high success rate and can last a lifetime with proper care.
