What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are an advanced form of tooth replacement that uses titanium to fuse with the jawbone. As permanent fixtures within the mouth, they support custom restorations that are designed to offer greater function, aesthetics, and oral health. Their ability to remain in place for decades and even a lifetime makes them an attractive solution for tooth-loss sufferers.

The 4-Step Dental Implant Process

  • Initial Dental Implant Consultation – Patients meet with a member of our Frandsen Dental of West Jordan team to discuss the process of receiving dental implants and whether additional services are required before moving forward with surgery.
  • Dental Implant Surgery – One of our skilled implant dentists will perform the procedure in-house using advanced technology so that implant posts are positioned properly and deliver maximum support.
  • Dental Implant Osseointegration/Abutment – The fusing of the implants and bone can take 4-6 months and is known as osseointegration. Once this is complete, metal abutments can be added to help with the attaching of the restoration.
  • Delivery of Dental Implant Restoration(s) – A customized restoration is delivered to our office and prepped for placement. Individuals can expect a natural appearance that blends in to create a cohesive look while also allowing for improved eating and speaking.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Unlike traditional dental bridges and dentures, dental implants are the only tooth replacement solution that can replace more than just the crowns of teeth. Instead, they go beneath the gumline to restore the complete root-to-crown structure. This allows for greater durability so that individuals can eat the foods they love without fear of embarrassment as well as speak without slurring their words. Individuals can also enjoy improved oral health and a more cost-effective approach because there is no need for replacements every few years.
