Are You Looking to Replace a Lost Tooth?

Posted .

Dr. Alexander Larsen and Dr. Travis W. Storey at Gentle Dental Arts are excited to offer dental implant restoration for our patients in Orem, Utah, wanting to repair their smiles. Dental implants have the versatility to replace all of your teeth, several or even just one.

These permanent replacements for missing teeth anchor securely in the jawbone. Our skilled dentists use dental implants to secure a tooth or teeth in place. Our dentist performs oral surgery to place a biocompatible titanium screw into your jawbone where the missing tooth was previously located. What the titanium screw does is acts as the tooth root by holding your implant in place securely.

While the surgical site is healing, the jawbone fuses to the titanium screw. After the healing is complete and the implant is secure, our dentist will attach the tooth onto the post. The type of dental restoration will depend on how many teeth are being replaced. This means you may receive custom-made complete or partial dentures, a bridge or crown. Our dentist ensures that your implant is both comfortable and pleasing to blend in with your smile.

Our goal is to help your smile regain its health and function to be just like your natural teeth. With our custom crafted dental implant restoration, this is achieved! Caring for your implants is similar to caring for your teeth, and with good oral hygiene, they will last as long as your natural teeth, or longer.

At Gentle Dental Arts in Orem, Utah, we are always ready to help you achieve the smile of your dreams. We invite you to call a member of our staff today at 801-788-4922 if you would like to know more. We are also happy to schedule a consultation with one of our caring dentists.
