Dental Implant Basics From The Sugar House Dentist

FROM THINGS LIKE WEAR AND TEAR TO TRAUMA OR DISEASE, some adults experience permanent tooth loss. Regardless of the kind of loss, oral discomfort and/or a lack of confidence are the common results. Of course, permanent tooth loss is something Dr. Jared, Dr. Daniel and their team always do their best to prevent. However, it isn’t always possible. The good news is that today there are beautiful and highly functional solutions.

Implant dentistry is not new, although from its original origins in the 50’s it’s come a long way. When scientists learned how bones can fuse with titanium, it made implants more plausible with natural bone support as a goal. Today, Dr. Jared and Dr. Daniel Theurer use this original discovery to copy the root and tooth system that your mouth naturally has.

Implants are first placed within the gum line, then given 3–6 months healing time to ensure complete and proper fusion. After the implants have healed, the custom crown, bridge, or dentures can be placed. After this placement (unlike traditional dentures or bridges) the solution is much stronger and long lasting, giving you the confident smile you desire.

As with most dental procedures, dental implants begin with a consultation with either Dr. Daniel or Dr. Jared to help with any questions and allow them the chance to create a custom-tailored plan that best meets your needs.

Here is a simple illustration of how dental implants work:
