Have you lost your teeth to injury or disease? We feel your everyday struggles and understand how difficult it is to live with missing teeth. A complete smile not only makes you look great but makes your daily life easier when eating and smiling.
If you’re missing teeth in Payson, Utah, you mustn’t conquer life with a gappy smile. Gunnerson Dental offers dental implants as a permanent solution for your missing teeth. Dental implants installed by Dr. Bradford look and function like natural teeth, delivering functional and cosmetic benefits unmatched by other teeth replacements.
How dental implants replace missing teeth
Dental implants are artificial teeth designed to replace your entire tooth, from the root to the crown. Gunnerson Dental designs implant-based restorations with so much precision that they look indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Although dental implant treatment differs from patient to patient, the typical procedure involves the three steps below.
- Surgically placing a titanium screw at a precise location in your jawbone
- Installing an abutment (connector) above the screw
- Restoring your teeth with dental crowns, bridges, or dentures
Careful planning is crucial for successful dental implant treatment. We use digital radiographs and CT scans to evaluate your dental health and identify the ideal location to place your implant. Our dental team has the skills, experience, and technology to perform the start-to-finish dental implant procedure right here in our office. From planning and surgery to restoration, all your dental implant needs are handled by our team.
Why dental implants are superior to other teeth replacements
An implant is structurally anchored in your jawbone, making it a stand-alone tooth replacement. Unlike dental bridges, dental implants stabilize the adjacent teeth by closing the gap that teeth may shift into.
The other benefits of dental implants include the following:
- Designed to replace your lost teeth for life
- Easier to maintain
- Restore your oral function
- Versatile to replace one, several, or all teeth
- Suitable for almost everyone, regardless of age
- Prevent jawbone loss
