Regain a Complete Smile with Dental Implants
Are you among the 120 million Americans who are missing at least one tooth? To regain a complete smile, you now have an alternative to conventional bridges, partials, and dentures. You can replace your teeth with the next best thing to your own using dental implants in Park City. They differ from any other dental prosthetic currently available, allowing you to enjoy several benefits that are not possible with traditional options. At Park City Dentistry, we have the solution you need to improve your oral health and your quality of life.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are unique because they replace both the root and the crown. By surgically placing a titanium implant post into your jawbone, it acts as a new root. This stimulates your jaw to encourage new bone growth. Your jawbone will fuse to the post to create a secure foundation for your restoration.
The new growth also preserves the density in your jaw, allowing you to overcome many of the challenges of missing teeth, such as additional tooth loss in the future. As the most successful and reliable option to replace your teeth, you will enjoy:
- Over a 95% success rate.
- Looks and feels natural.
- Has the potential to last for a lifetime.
- Preserves your jaw’s bone density.
- Improves your oral health.
- Prevents additional tooth loss.
- Restores your confidence.
Indicators of Dental Implants
Now, dental implants can treat all severities of tooth loss—whether you are missing one tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire arch.
A biocompatible implant post is placed into your jawbone to serve as a root. After adequate healing has occurred, an abutment is attached to the post. This allows a custom-made restoration to be connected to fill the space of the missing tooth.
Two or more missing teeth can be replaced with an implant-supported bridge. Prosthetic teeth are designed to match the appearance of your natural ones. Instead of placing dental crowns on your adjacent teeth to hold it in place, 1 or 2 implants are used to anchor it to your jawbone.
Dental implants allow you to skip the slipping and irritation caused by traditional dentures because suction or an adhesive is not used. Instead, an average of 4 implant posts attach it to your jaw. This allows you to enjoy added stability that is not possible with conventional dentures. In fact, you will have an increased biting force of over 70%.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
There is no set price tag for dental implants because the amount you pay is based on your individual treatment plan. There are several factors that influence the cost, such as the number of teeth being replaced, if any additional procedures are needed, and your dental coverage. Although they may cost more upfront than other options, they are most cost effective long-term because you will not need to have them replaced.
During your initial consultation with your dentist in Park City, we will provide you with an estimate and discuss your payment options.
