If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced you are probably thinking about getting dental implants. Today dental implants are one of the most popular ways to replace missing teeth. This is because dental implants look, feel, and function just like regular teeth. They also look great and are color-matched to adjacent teeth, so no one is even able to tell you have them. If you are looking for a cosmetic dentist who can provide you with great-looking Sandy City dental implants, we know you will do well to come visit our dental practice, Granite View Dental.
At Granite View Dental, our expert and highly-trained cosmetic dentist is Dr. Will Ellingson. At our dental practice we enjoy having the latest state-of-the-art technology, and our dentist enjoys being able to provide patients with the most modern dental procedures. Our practice specializes in providing preventive, cosmetic, restorative, and implant dentistry. Today more and more patients are coming to us requesting dental implants. Dental implants are used to fully replace missing teeth. A dental implant is made up of a lower titanium root portion and an upper porcelain tooth portion. This is very important because the titanium root will help keep the jawbone healthy, and will keep it from shrinking or changing shape. This will help to maintain the original contours of your face – the way it was before you suffered from any tooth loss. Sandy City dental implants also provide many other benefits. When you have dental implants you will be able to eat anything you like, and the dental implants will never slip or interfere with your good speech.
When our cosmetic dentist determines that your jawbone is healthy enough to hold Sandy City dental implants, he will begin the implant process by surgically implanting the dental implant into your jawbone. They will then be a healing time during which the jawbone will completely heal, and the implant will fuse to the jawbone. This healing process is different for everyone, and the length of time needed for it to complete varies from person to person. However, this process can take up to many months. Once our doctor has determined that your dental implants have completely fused to your jawbone, he will then proceed to permanently attach this ceramic tooth portion to the implant. At this point your dental implant is complete. If you would like to meet with our dentist to see if dental implants are a great solution for your tooth loss, contact us for an appointment.
