At Legacy Dental our goal is to ensure your smile lasts. If you’re missing teeth or are hiding your smile you may be a candidate for dental implants.
Suffering from single or multiple tooth loss? Legacy dental offers dental implants to close any gap in your smile. Dental implants are replacement teeth that could take the position and function of your natural tooth. At our dentist office in Salt Lake City, we consider them an excellent treatment for restoring your smile. A dental implant is a predictable way to replace missing teeth without damaging other teeth.
Our orthodontist treatment involves inserting a titanium screw carefully into the jawbone. After the titanium screw undergoes osseointegration, it becomes a permanent part of your jaw. It is then used to support a single permanent restoration, or a denture, or an entire mouth of new beautiful permanent teeth. Dental implants can look very natural and function like your real teeth.
During our implant surgery, high-quality titanium is permanently inserted into your jawbone. Titanium is among the most biocompatible materials that exist. There are some risks associated with dental implants, but in the hands of an experienced dentist, those risks are minimal. Our salt Lake City dentists have the experience of hundreds of dental implants surgery and have taken many hours of continuing education in implant dentistry.
With proper care, your dental implant post will last your lifetime. It’s a wise investment!
Although more expensive upfront than alternatives, implants last longer and require less maintenance.
Implants prevent bone loss caused by missing teeth, which also prevents premature aging.
Replacing a missing tooth avoids issues like adjacent teeth shifting or bite discomfort.
Finally, enjoy your favorite foods again! Implants are designed to withstand the pressures and motions of chewing.
Your end result will blend seamlessly with your natural teeth so that no one will notice.
A dental implant procedure shouldn’t be painful. Modern sedation dentistry makes sure that the procedure is entirely comfortable. In any case, we will use an anesthetic, and all you should feel is gentle vibration and pressure. Most patients report not needing to take any pain medication after the procedure and that the level of discomfort is not much different than other minor dental procedures. Once the dental implant has healed, it should feel like any other healthy tooth.
