A dental implant can help you repair your smile if you have lost one or more teeth to a tooth extraction, accident, or an infection. At Gentle Dental Arts, we are committed to providing the dental care you need to return your smile to its original state or better. If you are interested in receiving dental implants, Dr. Alexander Larsen can provide you with a basic review of the process of attaching a dental implant.

With your smile restored, you can enjoy simple things again, such as speaking, smiling, and eating correctly without worrying about a missing tooth. The process of placing an implant is simple, but you will first schedule an appointment with us to determine if a dental implant is the best possible treatment for your smile.

During the first procedure visit, Dr. Alexander Larsen will create a channel to the jawbone by making an incision in your gums, where he will create a hole for the titanium implant to be screwed into place and then suture the gums closed. Your dental implant post will be made of titanium because the material is strong, durable, and compatible with osseointegration (a process in which a foreign material fuses with the bone).

Following the placement of the dental implant, Dr. Alexander Larsen may recommend a dental restoration such as a dental crown, bridge, or denture to complete the appearance and function of the implant. We encourage you to give Dr. Alexander Larsen a call today at 801-788-4922 to arrange a consultation and determine if you should receive a dental implant in Orem, Utah.
