Dental Implant Placement in Provo
The teeth implants procedure consists of four main steps. Though the steps are simplified here to give you a high-level understanding of the process, we would be happy to discuss the details of the tooth implant procedure with you at any time here in Provo. Just give us a call to schedule a consultation regarding teeth implants if you are in the Utah County area!
1. ASSESSMENT | During an initial consultation for a teeth implants procedure, we will assess and review your situation and will partner with you to determine if dental implants are the best solution for you. This initial assessment includes x-rays and dental impressions, enabling us to identify the best teeth implants location as well as providing the model for the most natural looking and functioning tooth for your new and enhanced smile.
2. PLACING THE TEETH IMPLANTS | We carefully and comfortably place the titanium alloy implant into your jawbone. The purpose of the tooth implant procedure is to replace the natural tooth roots. Depending on your treatment plan, multiple teeth implants may be placed during the same visit.
3. HEALING TIME | Three to six months is the standard time needed for the teeth implants to heal properly. During this period, the tooth implant undergoes a process referred to technically as osseointegration in which your osseo (bone—jawbone in this case) literally fuses (integrates) with the dental implant. The result is an exceedingly strong and durable platform for your new dental crowns, dental bridges or dentures.
4. CROWN PLACEMENT | When the initial implant fusion process of the teeth implants procedure is complete, the new dental crown is ready to be placed. An abutment is first added to the implant which the new dental crown is then attached to. We pride ourselves on dental artistry and make sure that your new crown (or bridge or denture) is beautiful and natural looking. We also pride ourselves on our technical knowledge of implant dentistry and ensure your new tooth feels and functions like a natural tooth so you can enjoy laughing, eating and living in general normally.
