The Frustrations of Missing Teeth

Missing teeth cause serious issues, but dental implants can solve them. Examples include:

  • Trouble With Nutrition: You may miss out on some types of food, but dental implants and new teeth increase your choices.
  • Bone Loss: The jaw bone under missing teeth deteriorates, but dental implants strengthen the bone.
  • Migrating Teeth: Teeth move toward an empty socket. Implants hold them in place.
  • Embarrassment: People are uncomfortable with gaps in their smile. Get your confidence back!
  • Speech Problems: A missing tooth can cause a whistle or lisp, which a new tooth can correct.

If you have these or any other issues, call us at our West Jordan office now.

The Amazing Advantages of Dental Implants

The Amazing Advantages of Dental Implants

Dental Implants Defined

Each dental implant is a crafted post of titanium or similar metals. When placed in your jaw bone, it becomes a new tooth root, holding a dental crown or other restoration.

Dental implants are a reliable way to replace a tooth for the long-term. During the implant process, the post bonds naturally and permanently with your jawbone, improving your smile forever.

Because implants are designed to last, they are an amazing long-term investment. The same implant can support a single tooth today and be the foundation for bridges or dentures later.

Remedy for Missing Teeth

A missing tooth doesn’t just make a smile look incomplete; it is also unhealthy in these ways:

  1. An empty socket is hard to clean, making an easy spot for bacteria to grow.
  2. Infection can lead to gum disease, which can destabilize healthy teeth nearby.
  3. Bacteria can spread beyond the mouth, attacking your bodily health.

A dental implant lets you clean your gums and teeth more easily, improving your oral and overall health.

Improved Jaw Bone Health

Surprisingly, a missing tooth affects the jaw bone under that empty space. The jaw bone is stimulated and strengthened by each tooth root, but the bone shrinks and thins when a tooth is gone.

An implant acts as a new tooth root, which stimulates jaw bone growth and strength. This helps the jaw stay stronger, longer. Jaw and smile health improve. In some cases, it even improves the attractiveness of a patient’s face.

Stable and Secure

Once the dental implant process is complete, your tooth replacement will feel stable and natural. That’s because each dental implant is bonded with your jaw bone and uses the strength and stability of that connection, as natural teeth do.

We craft your replacement tooth crown or other appliance to look and feel natural. Your smile will look as great as ever, and you’ll be able to chew the foods you love without worry.

Tooth Replacement Options

Dental implants are the foundation for new teeth in varieties such as:

  • A Single Crown: One customized new tooth to replace a missing one.
  • Bridge: A short appliance that holds two or more teeth on two or more implants.
  • Dentures: A full row of teeth secured on several dental implants. They never slip out of place, and they feel natural because they’re connected to the jaw.

Don’t worry, your dentist will help you decide.

Full-Mouth Implant Rehabilitation

If your teeth are severely damaged or missing, you can get a makeover! With implants, we can replace every tooth under a single treatment plan.

Your dental team might first painlessly remove some teeth. Then, we’ll use several dental implants to support beautiful dentures that will give you a new smile.

With implants for stability, a new arch of teeth will feel like natural teeth for chewing, smiling, and speaking.

Who Is a Candidate?

You can get a dental implant if you are:

  • Missing just one tooth
  • Missing several teeth
  • In need of a full new arch of teeth
  • In need of a complete smile makeover

For just one tooth, your dentist will evaluate the health of your jaw bone and gums in the area of the missing tooth. For more teeth, we’ll widen our exam area. We’ll be sure that your jaw bone is ready for implants, then give you a free recommendation.

Find Experienced Implant Dentists in West Jordan

When you plan to restore your teeth with dental implants, you need an experienced and well-trained dentist. Both Dr. Erickson and Dr. Chappell have the training you need for successful implant placement and tooth restoration.

On top of that, our office is trained in the latest laser-assisted dental technology procedures such as LANAP and LAPIP to make your treatment and healing run smoother than ever!

What Happens in a Dental Implant Appointment?

Evaluation and Prep

When you arrive at our office, we’ll first ask you questions about your goals and needs. We’ll take time to answer your questions and make sure you understand the procedure.

We’ll also perform a thorough examination, including dental x-rays, to assess your readiness for dental implants—gum health and jaw bone density are vital.

Finally, we’ll help you prepare for the quick and easy surgery needed for implantation.

Bone Graft (Some Patients)

If we find that your jaw bone is thinner than needed for a successful implant, we may recommend a bone graft.

When a tooth has been missing for some time, the jaw bone under it naturally deteriorates from a lack of stimulation. Genetics and other factors can also cause bone loss.

With a short surgery, we add material to the jaw bone, stimulating it to grow and strengthen, getting it ready for a successful implant.

Implant Surgery

The surgery is a quick, painless procedure. While you’re numbed, your dentist will place a new tooth root in your jaw. Each implant takes 1–2 hours, and we use our laser-assisted dentistry procedures to help it go smoothly.

The implant is made of biocompatible material, such as titanium, which is not rejected by the body. If you need several implants, we’ll efficiently place them in a single procedure.

Recovery Time

Each implant will naturally bond with your jaw bone. This is a process which stimulates your bone to grow, creating new cells and making the implant a permanent part of the jaw.

You’ll need a few months to allow this process to happen and create a stable foundation for a restored tooth or teeth. You’ll go about your daily routine. If needed, we’ll give you a temporary tooth restoration that will help you chew.

The Tooth Abutment

If you are replacing a single tooth, we’ll create an implant abutment for you. This is a small connector attached to the implant post. It acts as a platform for your new tooth crown to sit on.

When we place your final tooth crown, we’ll quickly attach the abutment to the implant first, then attach the tooth crown to it. You’ll hardly notice it, but the abutment is vital for the function of your tooth.

A Custom Crown

While your implant is naturally bonding to your jaw, we’ll craft your new dental crown (if you need a single new tooth). This crown will be made out of high-quality materials, such as dental ceramic.

We’ll choose a color that closely matches your other teeth, along with shaping your new tooth to look natural in your smile. Of course, it’ll function like a natural tooth in chewing, speech, and smiling.

Tooth Restoration

The day we place your new tooth crown will be a short appointment. We’ll attach the abutment and crown to your implant and evaluate how well it is functioning. We’ll also make sure it looks great. If your treatment plan uses a bridge or dentures, we’ll quickly place those instead.

Within a short time, your new tooth will feel natural and work well. You should be able to chew your favorite foods and smile confidently.

Other Dental Implant Options

We use dental implants for a wide variety of treatment plans. What is your dream for your smile? Let your dentist know, and we’ll tell you the options available.

Implants are useful and flexible in the long-term. You can use the same implant for several types of tooth restorations during your life, from a single tooth crown, to a bridge, to dentures. Implants have been a high-value lifetime investment for many years.

Mini Dental Implants

A mini dental implant is half or even a quarter the diameter of a standard implant. We can place them fast with little surgery required. They’re often used for:

  • Front tooth replacements
  • Patients with small teeth
  • A new tooth in a narrow gap
  • Replacement of premolar teeth

All-on-4® Treatment Concept

In this procedure, your dentist will place an entire arch of teeth on just a few dental implants—often four, though other numbers of implants are effective.

This method means a large amount of teeth require a minimal number of implants, reducing time and expense for you.

Fixed Implant Dentures

If you’ve tried traditional dentures and had trouble with them—or heard about them—you may want to try fixed implant dentures. These are held in place permanently by implants. You never need to take them out for cleaning, and they never slip while you’re eating or talking.

Removable Implant Dentures

When you have dentures that are attached to implants, your dentures are secure and stable. However, some patients are still interested in taking their dentures out occasionally. We can customize your implant-supported dentures to snap on and snap off for this purpose.

Any Other Concerns or Questions About Implants?

With any major decision, you should ask any questions you have before making your final decision. We’re available at Jordan Landing Dental Care to answer your questions over the phone or in a free consultation. Plus, you can check our frequently asked questions below.

Your price will vary widely from the next patient’s. Costs are affected by:

  • Materials used in the implant or new teeth.
  • The complexity of the procedure for certain cases.
  • Any additional steps, such as bone grafts.
  • Dental insurance.
  • Other factors.

Your initial consultation is free. We’ll create a personalized treatment plan for you and discuss your specific prices, making sure you understand them as well as you’d like.

With anesthesia and sedation, the procedure is painless. We’ll keep you comfortable and relaxed in our office, along with preparing for a quick, efficient surgery.

After any oral surgery, some discomfort is expected. Bruising can happen. But we’ll send you home with some easy tips for managing this. Over-the-counter medication is often all that’s needed. Some patients even continue their daily routine after surgery.

They can last a lifetime. Remember these terms:

  • Dental Implant: A high-quality metal tooth root placed in the jaw bone. It can last the rest of your life, as it’s naturally bonded in place.
  • Tooth Restoration: The dental crown, bridge, or denture attached to the implant(s). The restoration can wear down over time and require repair or replacement.

Your dental implant is an investment that can last practically forever.

Dental implants could be the best solution for you. During your free consultation, we’ll check your oral and dental health, gum health, dental scans, and health history. X-rays of your jaw bone are vital.

Using years of experience, if your dentist thinks your implant surgery would be successful, he’ll recommend it. Otherwise, he may point you to other options to meet your goals. Either way, the consultation is free.

The first step is to schedule a free consultation. To prepare for it, think about your goals and any questions you have. We’ll take care of the exam and any preparations for your teeth.

Maintain great oral hygiene habits before the surgery. Finally, on the day of the surgery, you may need a comfortable place at home ready, along with some soft foods. Come with someone who can drive you here and back home again.

When you go home after implant surgery, you can manage swelling with ice packs and bleeding with gauze. Take pain medication to manage discomfort. Call us if you have any additional issues.

Eating a soft-food diet for several days will help, along with avoiding exercise that would raise your blood pressure. Your dentist will give you a checklist of actions that will help your recovery, along with a checkup schedule.

There are issues that disrupt the healing process after an implant surgery, including:

  • Smoking: Interferes with healing and can cause infection.
  • Using a Straw: Suction can pull your natural blood clot out of the surgical site.
  • Hard or Hot Food: Some foods can irritate your oral tissues.
  • Exercise: Raising your blood pressure could cause bleeding.

Your dentist will give you the latest actions for a successful recovery.
