Dental implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. This tooth replacement option is highly sought-after because it is affordable and leaves you with a complete, natural-looking smile.
Our dental implant patients have shared their experience with us. Watch the videos below to learn why Mountain State Oral & Facial Surgery is the right choice for your dental implant procedure.
Dental implants are uniquely designed in 3 parts to emulate the structure of a natural tooth and provide the support needed to chew, speak, and smile with complete confidence. Dental implants look, feel, and function just like natural teeth!
The 3 parts of an implant include
All of our board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons are trained to provide the full scope of oral surgery options, including dental implant placement, using the most advanced tools and surgical techniques available. We encourage you to contact us to schedule a consultation appointment, where you will receive a thorough examination and a personalized treatment plan.
Dental implants are the preferred tooth replacement option because they fully restore both aesthetics and oral function. Other dental prostheses can replace missing teeth to give the patient a complete smile, but they cannot provide the benefits of dental implants. The most common advantages that dental implants have over other tooth restorations include
Because each patient is different, your treatment plan will be customized by your oral surgeon to meet your specific needs. When you visit us for your consultation appointment, we will take 3D scans of your mouth, discuss anesthesia options, and design your personalized treatment plan.
On the day of your procedure, our welcoming staff members will guide you through every step of the process. First, you will be made comfortable with your choice of anesthesia. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, your doctor will carefully place the implant post into the empty tooth socket and stitch the surgical site closed. When the anesthesia has worn off, you can return home.
The dental implant will need to heal and fuse with the jaw bone over the next few months. During that time, your restorative dentist will create your custom-designed crown. When you are ready, your restorative dentist will attach the custom-made crown to your abutment. You’re ready to enjoy your fully functioning, natural-looking dental implant!
