Dental Implants in Payson, UT (Utah County)

Smile with confidence when you get dental implants from Silver Creek Dental in Payson, Utah County.

If you have a smile with missing teeth you need Payson dental implants. A smile with missing teeth makes eating and chewing uncomfortable. The mouth will shift teeth and make your appearance older than normal. The way to keep your teeth in line and maintain your youthful appearance is to get dental implants.

Metal-Free Dental Implants

Generally, implants are made from titanium. The titanium implant takes the place of the missing tooth root and serves as a base for the tooth-colored crown, the visible part. Dr. Chandler offers zirconia implants, which are metal-free implants that are highly bio-compatible. This means that the materials used with this kind of implant don’t bother the gums, and blend well with the bone in your jaw. A problem many dentists struggle with is that sometimes implants are rejected by the patient’s body, and the procedure must be done again. Zirconia implants have a very high survival rate.

A dental implant is a fabricated tooth resembling your real teeth. Dental implants consist of two parts: the tooth colored crown and the implant body resembling a screw that holds the crown in place and takes the place of the missing root. The implant will essentially become a new tooth for your mouth! Here are some of the things dental implants will do:

  • Strengthens teeth by keeping them in place

  • Reduces bone loss

  • Corrects speech

Dental implants feel, look and function the way real teeth would. High quality dental implants in Payson are hard to find but Dr. Chandler and his friendly staff are here to help! We work with the best laboratories to guarantee your new implant will look exactly like a real tooth. Here are just a few of the benefits you will see with quality implants:

  • Stops teeth from shifting
  • Cover up gaps in teeth so you have a perfect smile

  • Reduces shifting of teeth, preventing Orthodontic treatment in the future

  • Stops jaw from disintegrating

After undergoing a dental evaluation of your teeth structure and health history we will determine if dental implants are for you. If you are a candidate, Dr. Chandler will get started with the oral surgery. Two surgical procedures are done. The first one inserts the titanium implant into the jawbone. During the healing process the jawbone is getting used to the titanium screw and will bond with it. It will take three to six months before you are ready to schedule the second appointment. At the second appointment the other surgery consists of inserting the crown in your teeth.
