Dental Implants

Dental implants are a reliable solution for tooth loss, providing a permanent replacement that looks and functions naturally.

Dental Implants in Ogden, UT

Dental implants are artificial roots that support replacement teeth, whether for a single tooth, multiple teeth, or dentures. They help to maintain bone levels, prevent bone loss, and provide long-term support without affecting the adjacent teeth. Dental implants are an excellent option for those looking to replace lost teeth or secure dentures.

The cost of dental implants for patients with dental insurance varies depending on the plan, coverage, and limitations. However, we are always happy to provide an estimate of the cost based on these factors after the consultation appointment. For those without dental insurance, we strive to keep the implant cost affordable by fixing the price and offering flexible payment plans. At Haslam Dental, we offer dental implant services in Ogden, UT. Please call us to schedule a consultation today.

  • What are the benefits of dental implants?

    Individuals facing tooth loss encounter numerous hurdles, with the most apparent being challenges with chewing and speaking clearly. Ignoring tooth loss can lead to severe complications such as tooth shifting, deterioration of the jawbone, loss of facial structure, and imbalances in bite. These issues typically arise gradually due to the absence of a root system to uphold bone health and alignment. Dental implants offer an artificial root system to uphold stability and ensure proper alignment of the remaining teeth.

  • What types of dental implants exist?

    Dentists widely use and recommend two main types of dental implants: endosteal implants and all-on-4 implants. Endosteal implants are the most popular option and consist of a titanium metal rod inserted into the patient’s jawbone, along with a supporting post specifically designed to secure either a dental crown or a dental bridge. On the other hand, all-on-4 implants are a modern dental implant system that supports an entire top or bottom denture on just four implants. The implants are strategically placed to keep the replacement teeth stable and secure. This approach has several advantages, including faster patient recovery and reduced likelihood of complications from possible implant failure.

  • What is the procedure for dental implants? Are dental implants safe?

    Dental implants are widely recognized as a safe and effective solution for replacing missing teeth, offering a long-term option for restoring functionality and aesthetics to a patient’s smile. The procedure for dental implants involves several steps, usually completed over several months, to ensure proper healing and integration of the implant.

    1. Initial Consultation: Comprehensive examination to assess suitability for dental implants.
    2. Bone Grafting (If Necessary): To enhance jawbone density to support the implant, requiring additional healing time.
    3. Implant Placement: Surgical insertion of the titanium implant into the jawbone, followed by a healing period for osseointegration.
    4. Abutment Placement: Attachment of the abutment to the healed implant, possibly requiring minor surgery to expose the implant.
    5. Attaching the New Tooth (Crown): A custom crown is affixed to the abutment, completing the restoration.
