MULTIPLE DENTAL IMPLANTS - ALPINE DENTISTRY, UT

Restore Your Smile Permanently

Experience A New Life With Permanent Dental Implants

A life with multiple missing teeth is never a enjoyable life. Chewing and talking becomes uncomfortable. Also, the remaining teeth can move and shift into the gaps. Missing teeth can also cause you to have jawbone loss, which can affect the way you look.

If you have missing teeth, you may feel shame or shyness about your appearance. Missing teeth might even lead you to change the way you speak or smile to hide the gaps from view.

If you have one or multiple missing teeth, our dental team at Alpine Dentistry can help you. The dental implants we can provide you will restore the look and function of your teeth. It will also make them healthy for life.

Dental Implants

Dental implants replace your tooth’s roots, providing a life-long foundation for replacement teeth. We insert the implants (titanium posts) into your jawbone. Then, a few months later, we attach dental crowns or bridges to the posts to replace your missing teeth.

Are you looking to improve your appearance, speech, and self-esteem? If so, please reach out to us at Alpine Dentistry. We can provide the help you need to restore your smile permanently. 

If you are afraid of dental treatment, we understand. You are not alone! We can offer you many options to make sure you will feel no pain during your  surgery. 

Know Your Options

What Are Your Options for Replacing Teeth?

If you have more than one missing tooth, we have some options to restore your mouth’s look and function. Tooth replacement options for you will include: Removable partial dentures consist of a gum-colored base with replacement teeth. This dental appliance rests on your gum tissue and clasps onto your remaining teeth. A tooth-supported bridge is a man-made tooth (or teeth) that spans a gap where one or more of your teeth are missing. We usually place a crown on either side of your missing tooth as anchors for the bridge. The whole bridge looks like your natural teeth.

At Alpine Dentistry, we offer you the above teeth-replacement options. However, we often recommend implant-supported crowns or bridges. These replacement teeth are ideal if the remaining teeth are not strong or healthy. Implant-supported bridges attach to the dental implants we place into the jawbone. These appliances fully restore your teeth’s natural look and function. Unlike removable dentures, dental implants will prevent bone loss. Implants will also keep your remaining teeth from shifting.

Expect A Personalized Treatment Process

Multiple Dental Implants
Stage 1: Your Personalized Consult
We start your transformation journey with a personalized consultation. You will also have the opportunity to discuss your treatment objectives. During the initial consultation, we will:
1. Review your medical history
2. Decide on the best sedation for your needs and
3. Discuss the prosthesis (man-made teeth) you need Before the process, you may be unsure about certain aspects of the treatment. Your dental team at Alpine Dentistry will be happy to answer all your questions. Next, you will move forward with the pre-implant dental exam. After examining your mouth, your dentist will take a CBCT scan and photographs. We use these images to create surgical guides and your prosthesis.

Stage 2: Your Placement Surgery
Our patients who had dental implant surgery know that the procedure is painless. When you arrive, we will give you sedation to make sure that you won’t feel any pain or discomfort. Next, we’ll complete any bone grafting or pull teeth if needed. During the implants placement, your dentist will: 1. Access your jawbone through the gums 2. Drill holes into the bone 3. Place the implant posts If we are placing a bridge, only two post insertions may be necessary. After this stage of the procedure, you will still have gaps in between your teeth. It will take a few months for your jawbone to accept the implants and heal over completely. Until then, we will place temporary dentures over your implants. The dentures will be removable for cleaning and sleeping. Your removable dentures will also look like natural teeth.

Stage 3: Recovery And Restoration
After getting the implants, your jawbone needs time to grow and fuse with the titanium post. This process can take up to six months. After recovery, you will come back into the office for an abutment placement. An abutment is an attachment between the implant and the bridge. The gums will take another two weeks to heal after we place the abutment. After recovery, we’ll schedule you for bridge placement. This last step involves attaching the permanent, lifelike bridge to your implants. During the bridge placement, we will ensure that your bridge fits comfortably. Here, you will see your new look for the first time. If you are satisfied with the result, we will secure the bridge permanently to your implants.

If you can’t afford an upfront payment for dental implants, the good news is that we can help. At Alpine Dentistry, we offer flexible financing options through CareCredit and Mountain America Credit Union.
