Procedure: Dental Implant PlacementDental Implant Utah

Placing Dental Implants: Under local anesthesia, Dr. Mark Mangelson exposes the bone, then inserts the appropriate number of dental implants. In most cases, the patient is able to resume normal activities the next day. Other procedures may be performed at this time like bone grafting, tissue grafting, or sinus lift. These will have been discussed with you at the time of the treatment planning.

Bone Healing: After the dental implants are placed, they are covered with gum tissue while the bone heals. In many cases the dental implants and the abutment can be placed at the same time. During the next three to six months, dental implants integrate with the bone. Temporary crowns, bridges or over-dentures are optional during the bone-healing period.

Connecting the Abutment/Bone Healing: In many cases, it is possible to place the abutment at the same time as the dental implant and a fixed temporary solution may be constructed immediately or within a matter of days. If immediate placement of the abutment is not possible or desired, the dental implants may be covered by the soft tissue while the implants integrate with the bone. This usually takes three to six months. Different temporary solutions such as crowns, bridges or over-dentures can be used during this time. You will be asked to return to our Salt Lake City dental implant office for follow-up examinations.

Restoration: When the dental implant has fully integrated, Dr. Mark Mangelson takes impressions that are used in designing the final restoration. The impressions are sent to a dental lab where the crowns (or tooth) portions of the dental implant are made. Once the crowns are complete, Dr. Mark Mangelson will attach the crown to the abutment and the process is complete. You are now ready to enjoy your new beautiful smile.

Maintenance: Long term success greatly depends on regular periodontal maintenance. Visit our Salt Lake City dental implant office for maintenance from our dental implant hygeniests.
