Dental implants are artificial teeth that are surgically attached to the jaw bone so they look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Over time the implant actually fuses to the living bone cells of the jaw making it a strong, comfortable, and permanent anchor for your new tooth. Unlike dental bridges, no modification needs to be done to the teeth surrounding the tooth being replaced. Implants can be done to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a full set of upper and/or lower teeth.

What is the procedure for getting dental implants?
Getting dental implants is a surgical procedure which requires multiple visits to the dentist and may take several months to finish.
During surgery the implant, which will become the root of your new tooth, is placed in your jawbone and covered with gum tissue. Then time is needed for healing and for the implant to integrate into the bone. The dentist will then attach a post to the implant, which will serve as an anchor for the new tooth, and a crown will be attached to the post, looking and functioning like a natural tooth.
The experienced professionals at Platinum Dental Care in Lehi can go through the procedure with you step by step for your individual case.
