Dental Implants in Midvale, UT With Drs. Dickson & Cannon

Modern technology now gives us new ways to replace adult teeth. In the past, the most popular methods were dentures or fixed bridges. However, new dental implant technology is a widely favorable option due to its ability to mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. While dentures and fixed bridges can lead to further complications over time, dental implants are a safe, long term solution. There is no risk of slippage and no need to reshape any remaining teeth. With dental implants in Midvale, UT, Dr. Thomas Dickson can safely replace adult teeth without sacrificing comfort or stability.

Dental implants are essentially small pieces of titanium that are surgically implanted in the jawbone. Over a period of three to six months, a process known as “osseointegration” takes place and fuses the titanium implant to the existing bone. Once they have become integrated, dental implants do not slip out of place or rely on remaining teeth for support. They also provide necessary stimulation to prevent bone and tissue deterioration. The combination of these factors makes dental implants the best long term method to replace adult teeth.

While dentures and fixed bridges are perfectly safe ways to replace adult teeth, dental implants provide a number of advantages that neither treatment can provide. These include

  • Natural appearance
  • Greater stability
  • Resistance to decay
  • Prevention of deterioration
  • Increased comfort

Dental implant technology has been an established method to replace adult teeth for a number of decades. Patients who received implants in the 1980’s continue to report strongly positive results. In fact, if proper oral hygiene is maintained, dental implants can be a lifelong solution. With constantly improving technology, this is a method of tooth replacement that has a lot to offer.
