What are Dental Implants & How Do They Work?

Image of illustration of dental implantDental implants are titanium posts that serve in the place of missing tooth roots. They typically consist of three parts: the implant post, the abutment, and the restoration. When each piece comes together, they work to replace the entire structure of a missing tooth.

Dental implants are often considered the gold standard for replacing teeth because they are the only option that becomes a permanent part of your jaw. This is because the titanium materials are accepted by the body and fuse naturally with tissue and bone. The bonding process is known as osseointegration, and it is essential for creating a secure and lasting foundation for restoring your smile after tooth loss.

Who Can Get Implants?

If you are an adult in good oral and overall health, you will likely qualify for implant treatment. The two most significant deciding factors include jawbone density and gum health. Because dental implants are placed within the jawbone, there must be enough bone mass to hold them securely in place. Gums must be healthy, free of inflammation and disease to promote successful healing after placement.

How Do I Qualify?

Our CBCT scanner takes 3D images of your smile to gain a complete understanding of your oral health. By doing so, our dentist can detect issues such as gum disease and treat it accordingly before he begins planning for dental implants.

We work closely with trusted specialists in our area to help you receive essential preliminary care if your jaw is weak due to prolonged tooth loss or advanced gum disease. Our dentist makes sure to refer you to the right experts if you need a bone graft, sinus lift, or extraction.

What Can I Expect from Dental Implant Placement?

We are here to help you feel comfortable and confident in your care, keeping you updated at every step. If you are feeling anxious, our team offers nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation upon request.

Our dentist uses his many years of experience, skill, and trusted techniques to place dental implants. He uses strategic and precise positioning for successful healing and osseointegration.

Implant-Supported Restorations for Replacing Teeth Completely

When supported by dental implants, our dental restorations can replace any tooth missing in your smile. After your placement surgery and a period of healing, our team invites you back to our South Salt Lake dental office to attach your new restoration.

Our implant restorations include:

Crowns – Implant-supported crowns are ideal for replacing one missing tooth. Crowns supported by dental implants help prevent neighboring teeth from shifting out of place and jawbone deterioration.

Bridges – Dental bridges are designed to replace several missing teeth in a row. They use two or more dental implants as anchors for prosthetic teeth to restore biting and chewing function.

Dentures – Implant-supported dentures use four, six, or eight dental implants to restore your smile. These complete restorations are designed to replace all teeth missing in the upper or lower jaws, or both. Partial dentures can effectively restore multiple teeth lost throughout the smile.

At Main Street Dental, Dr. Young can do it all. He performs single tooth replacement as often as full mouth restoration with dental implants. He provides immediate implants if you have broken a tooth and need a temporary crown. Our dentist also offers immediate and Snap-On dentures.
