If you have one or many missing teeth that need to be replaced, you are probably thinking about getting dental implants. At our dental practice, Granite View Dental, our expert dentist, Dr. Will Ellingson, can provide you with well-placed and attractive dental implants in Sandy UT.
Many patients come to our practice to get dental implants because dental implants look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. Our dentist will first need to assess that you are a good candidate for dental implants in Sandy UT by making sure that your jawbone is healthy enough and thick enough to withstand the dental implant surgery, and to make sure that the new dental implant root can firmly fuse to the jawbone. Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for the procedure, our dentist will surgically insert one dental implant root for each tooth that is going to be replaced. There will then be a waiting period of several months during which time your jawbone will completely heal from the surgery, and the new titanium dental implant root will fuse to the jawbone. This process can take up to six months. When our dentist determines that the healing process has completed, he will have a beautiful porcelain crown completed which will serve as the top tooth portion of the dental implant. This new porcelain crown will perfectly color-match the adjacent teeth so no one will ever be able to tell that you have a dental implant in your mouth. In fact, the dental implant will be so comfortable that you too will soon forget that it is not your original permanent tooth. Once the porcelain crown is permanently attached to the dental implant root, your dental implant will be complete. You will now be able to eat, smile, and speak once again with total confidence and in total comfort.
