Have you had a tooth extracted? If it was bothering you, pulling it may be a relief. Unless, of course, the tooth was in the front of your mouth and now the gaping hole shows every time you smile. A dental implant from The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City may be your best solution.
A Better Restoration
A dental implant is a permanent replacement for all parts of the tooth. It consists of three parts: the titanium post, the abutment, and the restoration.
The Titanium Post
—Inserted directly into the jaw bone
—Titanium is unique in that it bonds with living bone tissue (also used in knee and hip replacement surgery)
—Can be made of gold, porcelain or titanium
—Permanently attached to the post (it will not slip and slide like dentures)
The Restoration (Crown)
—Usually made of porcelain fused to a metal alloy (PFM)
—Is made to match the color of surrounding teeth
—Will look as good or better than the tooth it replaced
Dental implant surgery is not an experimental treatment. The industry-leading materials and techniques have been tested and refined for several decades.
