Salt Lake City Dental Implant Dentist, Dr. Allan S. Thomas
Dental implants provide a durable and natural looking way to replace missing teeth. Dental implants can also be used to anchor a dental bridge or denture. Because the dental implants act like natural tooth roots, you can enjoy the same biting force as original teeth. In addition to enjoying your favorite foods again, you can restore your natural smile and the shape of your face.
Missing teeth often lead to feelings of embarrassment and can negatively impact your professional and personal life. As an expert dental implant dentist in Salt Lake City, Utah, Dr. Thomas offers dental implants as a permanent solution to restore your confidence.
The Dental Implant Procedure
After years of research, dental implants are among the most successful procedures available for replacing lost teeth. The actual dental implant is a tiny titanium post which is carefully positioned in the jawbone. As healing takes place, the bone will fuse around the dental implants and they will be supported by surrounding gum tissue. The dental implants provide stability and strength much like natural tooth roots. A dental crown or denture is attached to the posts of the dental implants resulting in a permanent solution that looks and functions like natural teeth.
