A dental implant from Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo is a permanent tooth replacement that looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth. Are they worth the investment? Absolutely!
Techniclly, a dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jaw bone. It replaces the root of the missing tooth. The post integrates with the bone to provide a stable foundation for one or more artificial teeth.
When the implant has fused with the bone (it can take up to six months), a smaller post called an abutment is attached. This post extends above the gum line. An artificial tooth (crown) is then attached. Same day implants are available for some patients that fit the criteria. Schedule a consultation so we can discuss your situation.
One dental implant can support one missing tooth. A series of implants can anchor a dental bridge, or a set of dentures. The dental implants available at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo are extremely versatile and can be used in a variety of configurations. We also offer a full range of family dentistry services. Schedule an appointment today!
