Missing or severely damaged teeth can greatly impact your quality of life. Fortunately, we offer a solution for missing teeth that affords you the opportunity to once again enjoy the foods you love and speak with clarity. Dr. Crawford and Dr. Leishman both place and restore dental implants at their Orem, UT, practice, renewing the function of your bite as well as your desire to confidently share your dazzling smile with the world.
We offer a variety of implant restorations, tailored to your unique needs:
A dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically placed in the jaw to serve as a replacement for your tooth’s root. Over the course of a few months, a process called “osseointegration” will occur, in which the jawbone will fuse with the implant.
This process creates a durable permanent base for a restoration such as a crown or denture. Dental implants can be used to restore and replace a single missing tooth, or to restore all teeth on both the upper and lower arches.
Unlike other procedures aimed at addressing cosmetic dental concerns, implants offer a wide range of health benefits in addition to an aesthetic boost.
As tooth loss occurs, the jawbone no longer receives the stimulation from the tooth roots that it needs in order to maintain its form and density. This can result in bone atrophy, the deterioration of gum tissue, and sagging facial structures, which cause a more aged appearance.
Because dental implants fuse with the jawbone, they provide the stimulation necessary to keep your bone tissue strong and healthy. Additionally, dental implants promote healthier gums and general oral health by reducing the possibility of periodontal disease and other gum-related issues.
Advancements in dentistry mean that patients who have suffered tooth loss are no longer limited to wearing uncomfortable restorations that irritate the gums, slip out of place, or appear unnatural.
