Restoring Function and Confidence to Your Smile
Dental Implants Ogden
At Hoopes Dental, we see thousands of patients who suffer from missing teeth because of an injury, a traumatic circumstance, or periodontal disease. Discomfort and self-consciousness often occur as a result. Dental implants have transformed dental care professionals' abilities to completely revamp a patient's smile from the root up. Dr. Hoopes works with one of the most trusted and highly regarded dental implant surgeons in the Ogden area to provide you with treatment to improve your health and appearance. Our friendly staff has compassion for patients who feel that having a beautiful smile is out of their reach. Are your missing teeth holding you back from fully enjoying life? If so, our team can repair your teeth and bite, and restore confidence and functionality to your smile.
A Permanent Solution to Missing Teeth
Dental Implants are titanium "man-made roots" that are surgically implanted into your upper or lower jaw. The sturdy posts provide a more durable, solid foundation for natural-looking dental crowns, bridges, or permanent dentures. Dental implants mimic your natural tooth root and provide your custom-crafted dental prosthetics with a more reliable anchor. Dental implants also halt the loss of bone mass in your jaw following tooth loss. To determine if dental implants are an ideal treatment option for you, Dr. Hoopes will perform a thorough evaluation of your jaw, teeth, gums, and mouth tissue before configuring an optimal course of action.
Candidates for Dental Implants
Our friendly staff provides customized and comprehensive dental care for patients living in Brigham City and throughout Ogden. Dental implants are most commonly recommended for patients who:
- Are missing teeth
- Have a healthy jawbone and gums
- Want more dependable support for their dentures
Because our oral experts care about the quality of your health and overall well-being, we do not suggest dental implantation for patients suffering from diabetes or heart disease.
The Dental Implant Procedure
Receiving dental implants generally requires two surgical procedures. During the first, an incision is made in the gums, and a pilot hole is drilled in the jaw bone. Next, the threaded implant will be inserted, and the gum is stitched closed over it. Over the next three to six months, new bone cells will develop around the implant, securing it in place. During your second surgery, a special abutment will be placed on top of the implant. This is where your restoration will attach.
Creating the Right Restoration for You
Once you have completed healing following the placement of your implant, Dr. Hoopes will take digital impressions of your implant and your surrounding teeth. These will be used to create the custom crowns or dentures that will attach directly to your implants, providing you with a functional and attractive smile.
