Should You Consider Dental Implants?

Posted by Hallmark Dental Group on Sep 29 2021, 10:43 AM

Dental implants are one of the most effective solutions to replace damaged or missing teeth. They are titanium screws drilled into your jawbone that replace the tooth root and help facilitate crowns, bridges, or dentures. 

There are several situations when getting dental implants can help you improve your smile.

At Hallmark Dental Group, our team of qualified dentists offers dental implants and other comprehensive restorative oral treatments for patients in Saint George, Utah. Our treatments can restore normal tooth function and help you get a bright new smile.

Here is what you can expect the dental implant procedure to look like and when you should consider getting dental implants:

How Are Dental Implants Placed?

A dental implant procedure involves multiple steps. Let’s take a look at them:

  • Extraction

The first step involves removing a damaged or infected tooth and making preparations to place the implant.

  • Placing the Implant

Our dentists will make a small incision and drill into your jawbone to insert the titanium implant.

  • Placing the Abutment 

When the jawbone fuses with the implant, our dentists will place an abutment to facilitate the placement of the artificial tooth.

  • Placing the Tooth 

Next, our dentist will place an artificial tooth on the abutment to complete the restoration and give you your new smile.

When Should You Consider Getting an Implant?

Now, let’s take a closer look at when getting a dental implant is your best option:

  • You Want to Prevent Jawbone Erosion

When you have empty spaces in your mouth caused by missing teeth, the jawbone starts to erode and deteriorate over time. Getting an implant can stop bone loss and encourage bone regeneration.

  • You Want to Stop Your Teeth From Shifting

Losing a tooth can force the surrounding teeth to move out of position and look uneven. It can also make cleaning the teeth harder and even cause your face to change its structure. 

A dental implant can help keep your teeth in position and maintain your facial structure.

  • You Want to Restore Your Oral Functionality 

Dental implants are the best available option when some or most of your teeth are missing. To restore form and function, you can get individual implants, bridges, or even dentures that sit on multiple dental implants.
