Our dental implants in Sandy UT will restore your full smile, filling in where you now have empty space. There are also practical reasons for them, though. Missing teeth can cause your others to shift, leading to discomfort and a misaligned bite. Here at Granite View Dental, we are pleased to offer the very best solutions for tooth loss.
Consider older full-tooth restorations. A fixed bridge needs your two surrounding teeth to be filed down so that anchors can be placed to stabilize the device. Partial dentures require that you apply dental adhesive, which can be both messy and unreliable, letting your dentures possibly slide when you speak or chew. In contrast, our dental implants in Sandy UT don’t affect your other teeth and they require no adhesive. That’s because they are not just a tooth, but a root, also. This means that you will have a replacement that is strong and dependable like a real tooth; one that will preserve your normal facial contours, and also keep your gum and bone tissue from atrophying. Implants look, feel, and perform just like your real teeth do. First, you will come in for a consultation and evaluation to make certain that you’re a good candidate. Part of that is testing your jaw bone, which must be sufficiently strong and thick to hold the implant. The titanium post that is your new root will be surgically placed in your jaw, whose bone tissue will grow around and fuse with the post. This takes a few months. A tooth-colored crown is then cemented to the post, completing our dental implants in Sandy UT.
If you take good care of an implant, there is every reason to think it can last a lifetime. Brush it, floss between it and your other teeth; you may even forget which one is the implant after a while. Schedule your appointment with our office right now.
