At our Cache Valley dental office, we offer cutting-edge dental implant solutions that offer a permanent and more natural-looking solution to missing teeth. Our dental implants also give you back the freedom to eat, speak, and smile with ease.
Dental implants are a popular and effective solution for replacing missing teeth. They are artificial tooth roots that are surgically implanted into the bone of the jaw in order to support dental prosthetics, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures or even replacement teeth. The key areas of a dental implant include the following:
This is a small screw-like post typically made of titanium and integrates well with the bone. This is surgically installed into the jawbone and serves as the foundation for the artificial tooth.
This is a connecting piece that is attached to the implant fixture. It sits above the gum line and serves as the anchor for the replacement tooth or dental prosthetic.
The replacement tooth, such as a bridge, denture, or crown is
securely attached to the abutment. This is the visible part of the dental implant that resembles and functions like a natural tooth.
Now, let’s take a closer look at the benefits of dental implants.
Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth, providing a seamless and aesthetically pleasing dental solution.
Unlike traditional dentures, dental implants don’t compromise the health of the adjacent teeth. They promote overall oral health by preserving bone structure and preventing loss of bone.
With appropraite care, dental implants have the capability of lasting a lifetime, making them a
durable and cost-effective solution for tooth replacement.
With dental implants, you can regain the confidence to smile, speak, and eat without worryin
about slipping or discomfort. Dental implants provide more stability and security.
Now, we will walk you through the step-by-step process typically involved when you choose to invest in dental implants.
The process begins with a thorough examination and consultation with one of our dental professionals. X-rays and imaging may be used to assess the condition of the jawbone and plan the implant placement.
During a minor surgical procedure, the implant fixture is precisely placed into the jawbone. Over time, the bone fuses with the titanium implant through a process called osseointegration, providing a stable and durable foundation.
After the dental implants have been placed, a healing period is necessary to allow osseointegration to occur. This can range from a few weeks to several months, depending on your individual healing factors.
Once osseointegration is complete, a second minor surgery may be performed to expose the implant and attach the abutment.
Finally, the replacement tooth is custom-made and securely attached to the abutment. The result is a functional and natural-looking tooth that blends seamlessly with the surrounding teeth.

Dental implants have become a widely accepted and successful option for restoring smiles and improving overall oral health. However, not everyone is a suitable candidate, and a thorough exam is essential to determine eligibility for this procedure.
Generally, a good candidate for dental implants should have sufficient jawbone density to support the implant. Adequate overall oral health is essential, as certain medical conditions can impact the success of the procedure.
