Dental implants have become one of the most popular tooth replacement options. Whether you have lost one or several teeth, these implants offer a durable and natural-looking dental restoration. A dental implant is a prosthetic replacement that takes the place of both the root and crown of your missing tooth. The implant itself acts as the tooth root and is a small, titanium post that is inserted directly into the jaw bone. The abutment, which is a small metal post, acts as an anchor to connect the crown. This custom-created crown will look and function just like your natural tooth. Dr. Price and the surgical team at Utah Facial & Oral Surgery have extensive experience and training in dental implant placement. If you are considering dental implants, we encourage you to contact our office to schedule a consultation.
Many teens and adults have developed a full set of permanent teeth but do not realize that their third molars, also known as wisdom teeth, are hidden underneath the gums in the far back of the mouth. These extra molars do have the potential to offer additional value to the mouth by increasing grinding and chewing power, but unfortunately, they typically do not deliver any benefit. Since there is not enough space in the average jaw to accommodate these extra molars, wisdom teeth can cause significant problems, such as periodontal disease, tooth impaction, and misalignment of healthy teeth. At Utah Facial & Oral Surgery, we recommend having your wisdom teeth removed before the teeth fully develop. You can rest comfortably under the care of Dr. Christopher Price. He has undergone extensive training in the administration of various kinds of anesthesia for all oral procedures. If you are looking to schedule your wisdom tooth extraction procedure or have questions about the surgical process, please do not hesitate to call Utah Facial & Oral Surgery to schedule your consultation.
For patients who need a full-arch replacement, finding a cost-effective replacement option that restores both function and aesthetics to your mouth can be difficult. The All-on-4® Treatment Concept is a unique treatment option that offers patients a new set of teeth in just one visit. Utilizing four specialized dental implants placed in the patient’s upper and/or lower jaw, Dr. Price can secure a full set of temporary replacement teeth in the first surgical procedure. This allows patients to start enjoying the benefits of their new arch of teeth immediately. After a brief healing period, the permanent replacement denture is inserted into the mouth. Unlike many temporary denture options, the All-on-4® Treatment Concept uses minimally invasive techniques for implant placement, which also reduces patient recovery time. If you think you may be a candidate for this treatment, or you would like more information, we urge you to call Utah Facial & Oral Surgery at (801) 446-4428.
