Information About Dental Implants

When a patient requires teeth removal, one of the best options following the removal is having dental implants. Dental implants provide a solid foundation for an oral surgeon to give a patient replacement teeth which feel, look, and function like natural teeth

Dental implants are small metal posts which are inserted into the jawbone, where teeth have been removed. These posts are generally made of titanium, which bonds with the bone, creating the foundation for the artificial teeth. Dental implants are also a very popular option because they prevent jawbone deterioration, which occurs when teeth are missing, keeping the facial structure intact.

Dental implants are changing the way people live! With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life. Contact us or call our office at 1-866-3WISDOM for expertly installed dental implants here in Ogden if you have additional questions not answered here.

Evaluation

To determine if the right option for you is Jessen Oral Surgery of Ogden’s dental implants, you will need to complete a dental exam and full health history with an oral surgeon. At these appointments, your oral surgeon would be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have, to ensure that you have a successful and worry-free procedure.

we would also be happy to go over patient information, fees and insurance for your procedure. While coverage for dental implants varies from policy to policy, we will work with you closely to make sure you get all the benefits you are entitled.

Procedure

Dental implants are metal anchors which act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jaw bone. Small posts are then attached to the implant which protrude through the gums. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.

The tooth implant dentistry performed at our Ogden office usually consists of two separate oral surgery procedures. In the first, your oral surgeon will place the metal posts (dental implants) in the jawbone, which act as anchors for the artificial teeth. For the next three to six months, the posts will gradually bond to the jawbone. During this time you may wear temporary dentures until your artificial teeth are ready to be placed in the implants.
