In the case of a patient who is missing one or more permanent teeth, Dr. Frandsen and Dr. Dansie may recommend a dental implant in West Jordan, Utah. A dental implant is a restoration that replaces both the crown and root of the tooth. The titanium dental implant post, which is placed in the jawbone, becomes a permanent part of your smile. The dental restoration, which is usually a dental crown, is attached to the dental implant post to replace the missing tooth.
Dental implants have many benefits to you and your smile. They can improve your appearance because they will look and feel just like natural teeth. Because the dental implant post fuses with your jawbone, your dental implant will become a permanent part of your smile. Dental implants can allow you to talk properly once again. Unlike some other restorations, you won’t have to worry about your new tooth (or teeth) slipping. Implants also allow you to eat with comfort and confidence. Dental implants can last for many years, or even a lifetime, as they are very durable.
