West Jordan Dental Implants
Dental implants are the preferred method for replacing and restoring missing or damaged teeth.
The reason that dental implants are so effective – and so highly regarded by oral surgeons and dental professionals – is their ability to replicate the structure and function of a natural tooth. Using a small, titanium post to act as the tooth root, dental implants stimulate the bone in your jaw to sustain bone health.
A custom-designed crown attaches to the post, providing a secure, natural-looking tooth. Dental implants allow you to eat all of your favorite foods without pain or worry. Caring for implants is simple as well, as you brush and floss implants just like your natural teeth.
Wisdom Teeth Removal & Other Oral Surgery
The wisdom teeth, also known as the third molars, serve no useful purpose for most people. In fact, they typically cause a host of problems.
When left to develop naturally, wisdom teeth can become impacted. They may erupt, fully or partially, or they may remain below the gum surface, exerting pressure on the adjacent teeth. The mouth can become crowded and teeth may overlap, causing decay and periodontal disease.
You may experience pain and swell at the site of your wisdom teeth or, even worse, you may have no symptoms at all – at least at first. By the time you notice a problem, infection, decay, cysts or even tumors may be present.
We recommend that our young patients come in for periodic evaluations, and schedule their wisdom teeth removal procedure at a convenient time, such as over the summer or a school break.
Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Utah can also assist you with TMJ and sleep apnea treatment, impacted canines, bone grafting, and oral pathology concerns.
