Dental Implant Surgery — Understanding the Lingo

Dental implant surgery isn’t confusing — to an oral surgeon, that is. To patients, however, some of the terminology may be unfamiliar.

Dental Implant Surgery

To make learning about tooth replacement easier, the professional team at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Utah put together the following guide to dental implant surgery lingo. Of course, if you have questions or need further explanation, just ask — we’re always here to answer your questions and help you understand how dental implants work.

Abutment

The abutment is the connector piece that attaches the artificial tooth, bridge or denture to the dental implant post placed in the jawbone.

Bone Augmentation

Also referred to as bone grafting, bone augmentation is a procedure that rebuilds the jawbone to provide a strong and stable foundation for dental implants. Augmentation is only necessary for patients with significant bone loss in the jaw.

Crown

The crown is the artificial tooth part of the dental implant. Crowns are usually made of ceramic or porcelain compounds, and oral surgeons take great care to make them look natural as if they grew in place.

Dental Implant

When oral surgeons refer to dental implants, they’re technically talking about the titanium posts that serve as a replacement tooth root. Two types of implant posts are used for patients with missing teeth:

  • Endosteal Implant: The vast majority of implant patients get endosteal implants, which are placed in the jawbone.
  • Subperiosteal Implant: For implant patients with shallow jawbones, subperiosteal implants, or those placed on or above the jawbone, may be considered.

Implant-Supported Bridge

An implant-supported bridge is made up of two or more crowns attached in a row, supported and fixed in place with dental implants. Unlike standard bridges, placement of these tooth restorations doesn’t require harming the nearby healthy teeth.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Like standard dentures, implant-supported dentures or overdentures can replace a partial or full dental arch. With this type of tooth restoration, however, the replacement teeth are firmly anchored in the jawbone with dental implants. As only four titanium posts are usually needed for support, implant-supported dentures are also referred to as all-on-four implants.

Osseointegration

Osseointegration is the process through which dental implants fuse to the jawbone. The jawbone naturally grows around the titanium posts, creating a firm connection that permanently stabilizes the replacement teeth.

Teeth-in-a-Day

Teeth-in-a-day is a faster process of placing dental implants. With this procedure, the titanium posts and crowns are placed in a single office visit, allowing patients to walk out with brand-new smiles. For patients who need bone augmentation, teeth-in-a-day implant surgery is not recommended.

Why Your Oral Surgeon Cares About Your Medical History

During your first oral surgeon consultation, we will ask you to provide a comprehensive medical history. Your patient registration forms may include questions about your lifestyle, health history and specific health problems in your family. The surgical staff and nursing personnel may ask for additional information.Your Medical History

Why is all this necessary?

It’s so we can use your medical history, along with the results of your clinical examination and testing, to ensure that your treatment plan is both safe and effective.

What Health Information Should You Share with Your Oral Surgeon?

You should share all your past health information — and that of your family — with your oral surgeon. Don’t stick just to issues related to the mouth, teeth and jaws, either. Mention everything, even if you don’t think it relates to your current problem.

Major illnesses and chronic medical conditions can have a significant effect on oral health and on the recommended treatment approach for dental and jaw problems. Your oral surgeon also needs to know about previous surgeries to make decisions about anesthesia and procedure recovery.

Do You Need to Tell Oral Surgeons About Medication?

You should always tell any medical professional about any prescription and over-the-counter medications and supplements that you take. Certain medications can increase the risk of dry mouth and other oral health problems, while others can interact with pain medication or anesthesia.

When you come in for your first oral surgeon consultation, bring along a list of the prescriptions and over-the-counter vitamins, supplements and medications you take, along with the dosage. Review the list before every appointment, and be sure to notify the staff of any changes.

How Do You Know Your Medical History Will Remain Private?

All federal doctor-patient confidentiality laws and ethical privacy guidelines protect communication between oral surgeons and their patients. Surgeons cannot disclose a patient’s private information without your prior consent.

Before releasing patient information to anyone — including insurance companies —surgeons require patients to sign consent forms. Nothing about your office visits, evaluation, diagnosis or treatment plan is shared without a signed release form.

Here at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Utah, we understand the importance of medical history in planning the safest and most effective treatment approach. Our oral surgeons, surgical assistants, nursing staff and administrative personnel take patient confidentiality seriously — we will never share your information without your written approval.

We provide the highest standard of professional care, always putting compassion and patient comfort first. As the leading oral and maxillofacial surgery practice in the Salt Lake City area for over a decade, you can trust our team to help you achieve lasting oral health while maintaining your privacy.

TMJ Headaches vs. Migraines

Did you know that TMJ headaches are often mistaken for migraines?

Headaches associated with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder can be just as persistent and severe as migraines, but they have different solutions. That’s why proper diagnosis is essential for effective treatment and pain relief.

TMJ Headaches vs. Migraines

To determine the source of your headaches, you’ll need to schedule a professional evaluation with an oral surgeon, but it might be helpful to know the characteristics of TMJ headaches and how they differ from migraines.

Symptoms of TMJ Headaches

The causes of TMJ disorder are not scientifically understood, but in many cases, physical stress on the temporomandibular joint and the surrounding structures is a contributing factor. And though not well-proven, tooth grinding, a misaligned bite and orthodontic appliances have also been associated with TMJ disorder.

TMJ disorder is known to cause headaches and referred pain in the sinuses, cheeks, ears, neck and even in the teeth. Most patients also suffer additional symptoms, such as dizziness, jaw muscle stiffness, clicking or popping in the jaw joint, a change in tooth alignment and difficulty opening or closing the mouth.

Symptoms of Migraines

As with TMJ headaches, the causes of migraines are not yet known. Scientists suspect that inflamed blood vessels in the brain or certain genes may be responsible. Stress, anxiety and irregular eating and sleeping schedules are also believed to be associated with migraine attacks.

Migraine headaches are often accompanied by nausea and sensitivity to light or sound. Many migraines affect only one side of the head, and the pain may get worse with physical activity. Some patients also experience auras before a migraine attack, seeing flashing lights or wavy lines, or having blurred vision.

A common cause of confusion lies in the fact that some symptoms of both TMJ pain and migraine headaches can overlap. Patients may spend time with a neurologist being evaluated for migraines while the answer to their problem lies instead with an oral surgeon.

Treating TMJ Headaches

Although both TMJ headaches and migraines are often categorized as tension headaches, they don’t respond to the same types of treatment.

Migraine treatment typically involves medication, which isn’t usually effective for the head pain resulting from TMJ disorder. On the flip side, TMJ treatments dealing with the jaws and teeth don’t work to alleviate migraines. For that reason, a professional evaluation is essential for headache relief.

If you have repeated, debilitating headaches and want to know if TMJ disorder is the cause, the professionals at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Utah can help find the answer and put you on the path to pain relief.

Dr. Partridge and Dr. Maxfield have the qualifications and expertise to diagnose and treat TMJ headaches. Depending on your symptoms and the degree of damage in your jaw, treatment options range from conservative approaches such as night guards to surgery — sometimes the most effective and long-term solution to this painful condition.

Contact one of our three convenient Salt Lake City area offices — in Cottonwood Heights, South Jordan and Tooele — and schedule a consultation to discuss TMJ headaches today.

Do Dental Implants Get Cavities?

Dental implants look, fit, feel and function just like natural teeth. So does that mean implants are also vulnerable to decay and cavities?

Dental Implants Get Cavities

In short, no — implants can’t develop cavities. However, that doesn’t mean dental implant patients have a free pass when it comes to caring for their restorations.

Why Don’t Dental Implants Get Cavities?

Dental implants are similar to healthy, natural teeth in look, feel and function. But when it comes to their composition, they’re different.

A dental implant has three parts — a post, an abutment and a crown. The post and abutment are made of titanium, a durable, strong, biocompatible metal. The crown is typically made of a ceramic or porcelain compound, both of which are artificial, not biological, materials.

As such, the oral bacteria that cause cavities will not damage a dental implant.

Why Is Oral Hygiene a Must for Dental Implant Patients?

So if implants can’t get cavities, why do oral surgeons stress the importance of oral hygiene after tooth replacement?

Simply put, implant stability can be compromised by the effects of cavity-causing bacteria.

The gums and remaining natural teeth remain susceptible to gum disease and tooth decay. These conditions can weaken the bond between a replacement tooth and the jawbone, which can lead to implant failure.

For implants to last a lifetime, patients must remain diligent about caring for both natural and replacement teeth. Any inflammation, decay or disease in the mouth can have a negative effect on real teeth and restorations.

How Do You Take Care of Dental Implants?

The recommended oral hygiene habits for dental implant patients are much like those for patients who don’t have replacement teeth. Basic daily brushing and flossing are key, as are regular professional exams and cleanings.

However, cleaning implants may require an interdental brush — a special toothbrush with tiny bristles that can easily fit between the natural teeth and replacement teeth. And implant patients need more frequent checkups with an oral surgeon to ensure the ongoing health and integrity of their restorations.

Do you have other questions about dental implants, or do you need information on tooth replacement options? The experienced, board-certified oral surgeons at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Utah can offer expert advice on tooth restoration and dental implant surgery.

With three Salt Lake City area offices — in Cottonwood Heights, South Jordan and Tooele — scheduling a consultation with an oral surgeon couldn’t be more convenient. If you live in northern Utah, contact us to learn more about dental implants today.

How to Stop Grinding Your Teeth

Grinding your teeth can lead to headaches and sore jaw muscles. Left untreated, the problem can wear down, fracture or loosen teeth, causing permanent damage.Grinding Your Teeth

Studies show that up to 31 percent of people are tooth-grinders. Many may not even know they have bruxism, as they only grind their teeth when they’re asleep.

So how can you stop grinding your teeth? Nighttime bruxism can be difficult to control, but some strategies can be effective.

Wear a Night Guard to Stop Tooth Grinding

One of the best ways to stop tooth grinding and protect your teeth against damage is to wear a night guard. A custom-fit bruxism appliance is a better choice than an over-the-counter device, as mass-produced bite guards often provide a poor fit.

For tooth-grinders with TMJ or sleep apnea, a specific type of oral appliance called an NTI-tss device is often recommended.

Try Stress Management to Stop Tooth Grinding

According to the Bruxism Association, nearly 70 percent of people who grind their teeth do so as a result of stress and anxiety. Meditation, counseling, biofeedback and therapeutic relaxation strategies can help stop tooth grinding related to stress. Some patients find hypnosis to be an effective treatment for bruxism.

Treat Issues Associated with Tooth Grinding

Bruxism can be a side effect of certain medications, including some antidepressants. When medication is the cause of tooth grinding, switching to a different prescription can solve the problem.

Bruxism is also associated with a range of medical disorders. Patients with sleep apnea, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and other underlying conditions may need treatment for their disorders in order to stop tooth grinding.

Other Self-Care Tips to Help Stop Grinding Your Teeth

Behavioral management strategies can be effective for some bruxism patients. The goal is to try to make facial relaxation a habit. Training the jaw muscles to relax by placing the tip of the tongue between the teeth during the day can help. Physical therapy exercises, facial massage and applying heat before bedtime may also be recommended.

And since stimulating substances can worsen bruxism, patients are advised to avoid caffeinated coffee, tea and carbonated drinks in the evening.

Of course, the tips given here aren’t intended to be used as a substitute for professional advice. If you know you’re a tooth-grinder, or you suspect that you might have nighttime bruxism, you’ll need an oral health care evaluation to identify the fundamental causes and determine an appropriate treatment plan.

If you want to banish your bruxism problem for good, the professional team at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Utah can help. As specialists in diagnosing and managing jaw-related facial conditions, Dr. Partridge and Dr. Maxfield have been successfully treating patients with bruxism for over a decade. Contact our Cottonwood Heights, South Jordan or Tooele office and schedule a consultation for expert solutions to help stop grinding your teeth.

After Wisdom Tooth Removal, Eat with Care

After wisdom tooth removal, you’ll need to change your eating habits for a few days to avoid aggravating the extraction site. You’ll still have plenty of options to keep you full and satisfied, but you’ll need to be careful about what and how you eat.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

For a recovery that’s as quick and painless as possible, check out our tips for eating after wisdom tooth extraction.

What Should You Eat After Wisdom Tooth Removal?

  • Opt for liquids for the first few hours after your procedure — milk, water, tea and broth are all good choices.
  • Fill up on soft foods that don’t require any chewing. Try applesauce, yogurt, pudding, flavored gelatin or mashed potatoes, for example.
  • Try soft foods that are easy to chew once you feel ready. Scrambled eggs, pancakes, oatmeal, rice, soup and pasta are all fair game.

What Should You Avoid After Wisdom Tooth Removal?

  • Avoid drinking through a straw, as it can dislodge the blood clot protecting the extraction site and cause dry socket, a painful condition that prolongs the recovery period.
  • Avoid crunchy, chewy or sticky foods because they can irritate the extraction site.
  • Don’t consume acidic or spicy foods and beverages, as they can cause pain and stinging.
  • Don’t eat or drink anything that’s too hot. Your mouth may be sensitive to temperature after your tooth extraction.

Tips for a Smooth and Easy Wisdom Tooth Extraction Recovery

First, don’t smoke after your tooth removal. Similar to the suction necessary for drinking through a straw, smoking can lead to dry socket. The longer you can go without a cigarette, the better — maybe now’s a good time to ditch the habit?

During the tooth removal recovery period, you’ll also need to take it easy. Physical activity can cause pain and bleeding at the extraction site, so avoid heavy lifting, bending and any form of exercise for a couple of days or however long your oral surgeon recommends. When you return to your regular activities, do so gradually.

Keeping your mouth clean is essential when you’re recovering from wisdom tooth extractions. Rinse with warm, salted water at least a few times per day until you can resume brushing. Be gentle with brushing until healing is complete, steering clear of the extraction site.

When you visit Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Utah for wisdom tooth removal, our professional team will give you specific aftercare instructions for a speedy, comfortable recovery. Follow our advice, and you’ll be back to enjoying your favorite foods in almost no time at all.

Bone Grafts for Dental Implant Procedures

Bone grafts are often necessary for dental implant patients before they can get their replacement teeth.

Bone Grafts for Dental Implant

Implants need a solid foundation of tissue in the jawbone for support, but missing teeth can lead to significant bone loss. Transplanting or grafting new bone material solves this problem and this simple, minimally invasive procedure can be done right here in our office.

Oral surgeons typically use one of four types of bone grafts — autografts, allografts, xenografts or alloplasts — for dental implant patients with jawbone degeneration. Our oral surgeons will recommend the type of grafting material that is most appropriate for you.

Autografts

Autografts, or autogenous bone grafts, are small sections of tissue taken from the patient’s hip, leg, rib or elsewhere in the body. Using an autograft adds an additional step to dental implant surgery, but the grafting material is considered the most effective for jawbone regeneration.

Oral surgeons also prefer autografts because they carry no risk of rejection by the body.

Allografts

Allografts are also human tissue, but these grafts aren’t harvested from the dental implant patient.

Instead, the material is sourced from a tissue bank, where it is thoroughly tested for health and safety in transplant use. However, as tissue banks cannot guarantee that allografts are risk-free, some oral surgeons advise against their use in certain patients.

Xenografts

Xenografts are derived from living tissue, but not from human donors.

These bone grafts come from either cow (bovine) or pig (porcine) bone. Xenografts are biocompatible to human jawbone tissue, and the bone regenerated with this grafting material is dense and strong.

Alloplasts

Alloplasts are synthetic bone grafts made from surgical-grade resins, calcium sulfate, hydroxyapatite, calcium phosphate and other minerals that encourage jawbone regeneration. Alloplasts have been successfully used in dental implant surgery for years, but oral surgeons typically prefer other bone grafting materials for implant patients.

Which Type of Bone Graft Is Right for You?

For most dental implant patients, autografts are considered the optimal choice due to their superior regenerative properties. But every patient is different, and oral surgeons consider the individual needs of each patient in determining which bone graft material to use.

Some patients are opposed to tissue harvesting, for example, so they won’t consider autografts. For others, religious convictions go against the use of xenografts or alloplasts. While surgeons may recommend certain grafting materials over others, individual patient concerns take precedence.

Keep in mind that not everyone who gets dental implants needs to have a bone graft first. Patients who already have sufficient jawbone density can skip this procedure.

The professional oral surgeons at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Utah are the leading Salt Lake City area tooth restoration specialists, with over a decade of experience in placing dental implants and bone grafts. Contact us at our convenient Cottonwood Heights, South Jordan and Tooele offices to schedule a consultation with one of our oral surgeons today.

Don’t Let Oral Surgery Costs Deter You from a Needed Procedure

If the funds for your oral surgery have to come out of your own pocket, you might be tempted to delay the procedure — but this is not a wise move.

Oral Surgery Costs Deter

Cost is one of the leading reasons patients put off oral and maxillofacial surgery. Some people think treatment isn’t urgent if they aren’t bothered by pain or functional problems. Others have symptoms, but the price of the procedure makes them think twice about opening their wallet.

Regardless, holding off on getting oral surgery can mean paying a bigger price in the long run — and we don’t just mean more money.

Why shouldn’t you postpone treatment?

Oral Surgery Can Benefit Your Overall Health

As the saying goes, if you have your health, you have everything.

People seem to intuitively understand this in terms of their overall health and seek out treatment when needed. But when it comes to oral health, getting timely professional care is often seen as less important.

This type of thinking is misguided, because an unhealthy mouth can lead to an unhealthy body. If you need oral or maxillofacial surgery and decide to forgo treatment, you may be at a greater risk for serious medical issues, including heart disease, stroke and poor glycemic control.

Putting Off Oral Surgery Leads to More Pain

If you’re not in pain now, what’s the harm in postponing treatment?

Pain from an oral health problem can come on suddenly. Once you start hurting, you’ll wish you had scheduled your surgery. The pain won’t go away on its own, and it will probably get worse the longer you wait. Is delaying treatment worth the price you pay in added pain? We say no — and most patients would agree.

Postponing Oral Surgery Can Increase the Cost

Oral health problems are progressive, meaning that they worsen over time.

What might be a simple surgical procedure today could turn into a more complicated (and costlier) treatment if you wait several months. If you want to pay less to preserve your oral health, now’s the time to schedule your surgery.

Oral Surgery Can Be Affordable

Many patients who need oral or maxillofacial surgery don’t have dental insurance, or their procedure isn’t covered. And not everyone has enough cash in the bank or room on their credit card to cover treatment.

Fortunately, patients have several options to make surgery more affordable. Many oral surgeons offer payment plans or cash discounts for certain procedures. Dental discount plans can also bring down treatment costs.

If you’re concerned about fitting treatment into your budget, Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Utah can help. We want you to get the care you need, and our professional team will work with you to find a payment solution that works for you.

Don’t postpone your procedure any longer. Contact our Cottonwood Heights, South Jordan or Tooele office today and schedule a consultation to discuss our affordable payment options for oral surgery.

Do TMJ Symptoms Improve with a Mouthguard?

For painful TMJ symptoms, many patients find relief with a mouthguard.

Many people suffering from temporomandibular joint disorder try a range of solutions to get rid of the jaw pain and stiffness. Wearing a night guard is one of the common conservative treatments for TMJ disorder.

TMJ Symptoms

But is this an effective solution?

For some patients, a night guard can be helpful in managing TMJ symptoms. However, for others, more aggressive or conservative treatment measures may be more effective.

Night Guards Can Help Prevent Tooth Grinding and Clenching

Many patients with TMJ disorder tend to grind or clench their teeth at night, which can make symptoms worse. Wearing a night guard can help stop these habits.

However, buying an over-the-counter bite guard from the drugstore is not advisable in most cases. A mass-produced oral device may fit, but the prosplect of it fitting well enough to relieve your TMJ symptoms is unlikely. In fact, some patients report that over-the-counter night guards make the disorder more painful.

A custom-fitted night guard is more expensive, but the device stands a better chance at providing symptomatic relief.

Wearing an NTI Device Can Help Manage TMJ Symptoms

One type of custom-fitted oral appliance that works well for some patients with TMJ disorder is called an NTI-tss device, short for nociceptive trigeminal nerve tension suppression system.

This night guard is custom-designed to position the jaw in an ideal resting location. As such, wearing an NTI device can relieve jaw strain and help decrease unconscious jaw movement. Use this oral appliance every night, and you may find that your daytime pain and stiffness are greatly reduced, if not eliminated.

Other Conservative Measures Can Alleviate TMJ Symptoms

A night guard — custom-fitted or not — isn’t helpful for everyone with TMJ disorder. Consequently, oral surgeons often recommend other conservative treatment measures.

Massage, stretching exercises, stress reduction and other self-care practices work for some TMJ patients. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), acupuncture, biofeedback and trigger point injections are among the many non-invasive methods that can help alleviate symptoms.

TMJ Symptoms May Persist After Conservative Treatments

For some patients, conservative treatments are enough to keep the pain and stiffness of TMJ at bay. For others, these measures don’t work, and surgical intervention may be recommended.

TMJ surgery is usually considered a last-resort treatment, but it can provide permanent relief from the disorder. Arthrocentesis or arthroscopy procedures are preferred, as these surgeries are minimally invasive. However, for more advanced cases involving structural problems in the joint, an open arthroplasty procedure may be required.

Dr. Maxfield and Dr. Partridge at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Utah specialize in treating jaw-related facial conditions, diseases and injuries, including TMJ disorder. Our professional team can help alleviate your pain and restore your jaw function. Contact one of our three convenient Salt Lake City area offices — located in Cottonwood Heights, South Jordan and Tooele — and schedule a consultation today to get on the road to relief from your TMJ symptoms.

Why Tooth Restorations May Not Match Your Natural Teeth

If you got your tooth restorations years ago, you may have noticed that the dental implants or crowns no longer match the color of your natural teeth.

You know they matched when you got them, so why is the old implant a different color from the rest of your smile today?

tooth restoration color match

Although you might assume the implant has changed color over time, chances are it’s your natural teeth that have changed color, and staining is likely to blame.

Natural Teeth Are Prone to Staining

Today’s restorations are designed to resist staining. But their durability could be the real reason your old restoration seems to stick out like a sore thumb.

Natural teeth are porous, and therefore highly susceptible to staining. So your tooth restorations likely look the same as they did the day they were placed, while your natural teeth look much darker because of staining.

Your Old Tooth Restoration May Have Discolored

On the other hand, older dental implants and crowns are not always impervious to stains. So although it’s unlikely, the mismatch in color could be at least partially due to staining.

If you regularly use an abrasive toothpaste or rinse with an acidic fluoride wash, the protective coating on your restorations can wear away. Once that happens, the replacement teeth become vulnerable to staining.

How to Minimize Tooth Staining

Some whitening agents can be safely used with crowns and dental implants, but the best way to minimize tooth staining is to take a preventive approach.

Use a gentle toothpaste and mouth rinse so the protective finish is less likely to break down. Smoking can stain natural teeth and implants, so try to quit using tobacco to minimize this problem.

Certain foods and drinks can also leave their mark on your smile.

Coffee, tea, red wine, blueberries and beets a just a few common stain-makers. Try drinking beverages through a straw to prevent them from coming into contact with your teeth, and be sure to brush and rinse after indulging in any foods or drinks that stain.

What to Do if an Old Tooth Restoration Does Not Match

If you’re embarrassed or self-conscious about how your old implants don’t match your natural teeth, an oral surgeon can help.

Today’s dental implants and crowns are more resistant to wear and discoloration than those placed many years ago. If your tooth restoration is a mismatch, you can have it replaced — and an expert oral surgeon can make sure that your new restoration is indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth.

The experienced oral surgeons at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Utah have extensive experience and training with dental implants. Under our expert care, you can get a naturally beautiful smile.
