Patients facing the loss of a tooth can feel uncertain about the best options for tooth replacement. If you’ve researched terms like “teeth implants Utah” and have been overwhelmed by pages of search results, you can now rest easy. Because here at Cannon Dental, Dr. David Cannon, a premier dentist in Salt Lake City, can tell you all you need to know about how dental implants can restore your smile.
Dental Implants and How They Work to Restore Your Smile
While there are many options for tooth replacement, such as dentures and bridges, none can match the long-term durability, realistic look, and function of dental implants.
Your natural tooth is comprised of two main parts. The first part is the crown, which consists of the visible portion you can see just above your gum line. Then there’s the root, the part that anchors your tooth securely into your jawbone.
With a dental implant restoration, you replace the tooth root, making your new tooth much stronger and more stable than other replacement options.
Dental implants achieve this goal by fusing with the jawbone through a process known as osseointegration. This naturally occurring process takes place as your body heals following the surgical placement of the implant into your jawbone.
Your New Upgraded Tooth
The result of your new dental implant is a brand new tooth with several upgraded qualities such as:
Being more functional: Out of all the tooth replacement options on the market, only dental implants can offer the best functionality with a cosmetic appeal that most closely mimics your natural tooth. There’s no need to worry about avoiding certain foods or your tooth falling out while eating or speaking with implants.
Longer-lasting: Your dental implant can last a lifetime by practicing Dr. Cannon’s recommended daily oral hygiene routine and regular office visits.
Beneficial to your overall oral health: An implant stimulates your jawbone every time you chew while helping prevent the naturally occurring degradation that takes place in your jawbone following tooth loss.
Aesthetically more attractive: Since we use advanced dental technologies to craft your replacement tooth, it looks completely natural and seamlessly blends in with your smile. Plus, replacing your tooth can also assist in preserving your facial structure, so you never experience that “sunken in” look in your cheeks.
