REGAIN YOUR NATURAL SMILE WITH
When you have a missing, badly damaged, painful or infected tooth (or teeth), dental implants can restore your beautiful smile. If you find yourself in a situation where your original teeth are compromised, our first goal is to save your natural tooth whenever possible with our restorative dental services. The sooner you meet with Dr. Smith, the higher your chances are of keeping the natural tooth intact. However, when saving the original tooth is not an option, rest assured that we can provide you with high-quality dental implant services. Dr. Smith is very experienced at placing dental implants for patients in the Logan, UT, area.
Implants are a very durable tooth alternative because they are anchored into the jawbone like real teeth. Unlike bridges or dentures, dental implants don’t impact surrounding teeth. Dental implants also don’t cause the jawbone to deteriorate over time. You won’t have to worry about your implants coming loose when you talk, eat, or smile. Additionally, implants won’t decay like natural teeth are prone to do.
If our experienced dentist determines that your original tooth cannot be saved, Dr. Smith will insert a titanium rod into your jawbone to replace the tooth root. Once installed, this rod will look a little like a small silver-colored bead on the gum. It typically takes between four to six months for the area to heal and the bone and implant to fuse. Once Dr. Smith deems it safe, he will perform a procedure to attach a tooth restoration to the implanted rod. The dental implant will look and function like a real tooth, although you’ll want to take precautions to protect it from chipping or cracking.
Whether you need a single tooth replaced or an entire mouthful, Dr. Smith is here to help. We go above and beyond to ensure the comfort of our patients. Call us to discuss dental implants in our Logan, UT office.
Dental implants are teeth substitutes that need to be taken care of like regular teeth. To give your dental implants the best care, be sure to brush and floss like you would with a natural tooth. You might also want to use an antibacterial mouthwash and a soft-bristle toothbrush.
A single dental implant can cost between $1,500 and $4,500. Dental implant prices typically include the implant, the support post, and the crown. The exact price of your dental implant depends on where you need the implant, how many implants you need, and if you will have to have a bone graft.
Dental implants can be a possibility for people of all ages. However, older adults often have one or more missing permanent teeth, making them excellent candidates for implants. If you are over the age of 65 and have a missing tooth, dental implants could be the best option for you.
