Dental Implants in South Jordan, UT

The Proven, Healthy Solution for Missing Teeth

Our South Jordan, UT, patients who suffer from missing or failing teeth often choose dental implants as their tooth replacement option. Dental implants are a revolutionary method of tooth replacement that gives you a fully functionally new tooth while preventing the bone atrophy that can result from tooth loss. The post is surgically inserted into the patient’s jaw bone where it integrates with the living bone after a few weeks of healing time. A small piece, called the abutment, attaches to the implant post and acts as a secure anchor for a realistic and tailor-made prosthetic crown.

If you have one or more missing teeth, we invite you to contact Utah Surgical Arts in South Jordan, UT. Dr. Harris, Dr. Park, Dr. Brown, and Dr. Wood. will create a custom treatment plan for your needs and help you achieve a complete, functioning smile.

When you choose to have your dental implants placed at our practice in South Jordan, UT, you will receive exceptional care. We use state-of-the-art Cone Beam CT technology to produce a 3D image of your facial bone structure and use this data to create detailed surgical guides. Our oral surgeons are extensively trained and experienced in dental implant placement and will develop a personalized treatment plan for you.

Types of Dental Implants in South Jordan, UT

  • Single Implants. Wherever you have a missing or damaged tooth, a dental implant can be inserted to replace it, provided you have enough adequate jaw bone to support it.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges. When several teeth are missing next to each other, a dental implant can support a bridge to restore your smile. This saves your healthy teeth from being reshaped to fit the bridge.
  • Same-Day Implants. We can insert an implant post the same day as a tooth extraction if you have adequate jaw bone, reducing the number of appointments necessary.
  • All-on-4® Treatment Concept. Four implants are inserted and used to hold a fixed denture, resulting in a brand new, fully functioning, and complete smile after only one surgical procedure.

Zirconia Implants

Utah Surgical Arts offers zirconia, or ceramic, implants. This alternative to traditional titanium implants is ideal for patients with allergies or sensitivity to titanium. Zirconia implants are metal-free and provide the same benefits as traditional dental implants. Many patients claim that ceramic implants appear more natural than traditional implants because the material is naturally white in color, producing more natural results. To learn more about ceramic implants and to see if you qualify, contact us in South Jordan, Utah, to schedule an appointment.

Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Dental implants in South Jordan, Provo, Payson, and Lehi, Utah

Most patients with a missing tooth or teeth are eligible to receive dental implants.

Anyone who is healthy enough to have a tooth removed is generally a candidate for dental implant surgery. However, if you have certain medical conditions, this may affect your candidacy or require additional treatments. You may not be a candidate for implant-supported tooth restoration if:

  • You have severe bone loss, tooth decay, or periodontal disease.
  • Your jaw bone has not fully developed.
  • You regularly use tobacco products.

Thanks to advances in dental implant technology, more people are candidates for dental implants than ever before. We encourage you to schedule a consultation with the oral surgeons at Utah Surgical Arts in South Jordan, UT, for a consultation. Our team will assess your oral health and determine if dental implants are right for you.

Dental Implant Surgery in South Jordan, UT

Your dental implants will be placed by your oral surgeon at our office in South Jordan, UT. We use the most cutting-edge CBCT scanning technology to create surgical guides, ensuring the accuracy of your surgery.

First, your oral surgeon will make an incision in the gum tissue and insert the post into the jaw bone. It will integrate over the next 3 to 6 months and become the foundation for your replacement tooth. During this healing time, your restorative dentist will create your personalized crown. Once the post has completely fused with the jaw bone beneath the surface of the gums, the implant is exposed once again during a second procedure to attach the abutment and place the customized crown.

When you choose Utah Surgical Arts, you can be assured that each of the doctors has extensive training and experience in the surgical placement of dental implants and is acutely aware of the importance of aesthetics when managing the surrounding bone and soft tissue. When placed by a professional, dental implants have high success rates and serve as long-term replacement teeth when cared for with proper dental hygiene.

We use the highest quality of dental implant materials and technology to produce remarkable results.

Dental Implant Cost and Value

The cost of having a dental implant placed in South Jordan, Utah, depends on how many you need, if you require extraction or bone grafts, your insurance, and your choice of anesthesia. Our front desk staff will go over these items with you and provide you with a cost estimate prior to treatment.

Other options may be cheaper upfront, but dental implants are the only solution that protects jaw bone health. Removable dentures must be routinely replaced, taken out during meals and cleaning, and can cause oral sores. With dental implants, your replacement tooth is a secure part of your smile and remains in place at all times. Dentures and bridges can lead to severe jaw bone atrophy, which can develop into gum disease or tooth decay. Protect your health tomorrow by investing in dental implants today at Utah Surgical Arts.

AAAHC Accreditation

Utah Surgical Arts is approved by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). This accreditation is difficult to obtain and allows our office to function as a hospital and/or surgical center. Since extensive surgeries must be performed in a surgical center, there are many instances where the patient may be unable to undergo surgery due to the high cost of the hospital or surgical center. If your surgery can be performed at Utah Surgical Arts, the cost savings may be significant. Many patients who were unable to have the procedure due to the high cost involved were able to have the procedure performed at Utah Surgical Arts.

Denture Replacement With Dental Implants

Although dentures are a quick and non-invasive way to replace missing teeth, they must be replaced every few years and often require special care regimens. Dentures do not prevent jaw bone loss, and it can feel embarrassing to remove your teeth to eat. You can replace dentures entirely with dental implants, a healthier and longer-lasting alternative.

The All-on-4® treatment concept uses four implants to secure a fixed denture. This new arch of teeth stays in place, and the implants provide stability and prevent jaw bone loss. We can also replace partial dentures with an implant-supported bridge or multiple dental implants. Dental implants are a healthy alternative to traditional dentures and our surgeons look forward to exploring your tooth restoration options with you. Contact our office to learn about denture replacement in South Jordan, UT.

Types of Anesthesia

Our surgeons at Utah Surgical Arts offer many anesthesia and sedation options for patients to choose from.

Reviews From Our Dental Implant Patients

Robert Reviews His Dental Implant Procedure

Watch Review

"My back right molar was in a great deal of pain for a while. I had had two root canals done on it, and then I had the tooth pulled out and the roots cut off — still pain. My sister-in-law works here, and so she'd recommended that we come and have the tooth extracted and get an implant, and that would fix the problem, and it did. Dr. Harris, first when I visited, he came in, gave me an interview, explained the whole process. That was comforting, just to know that he was pulling out the tooth and then putting in the metal rod. Professional, they know what they're doing. They're awesome. They took care of me."

"Initially, I came because my other dentist — my regular dentist — told me that I needed some implants, and so he recommended Dr. Park. Dr. Park had to extract my tooth, and then, he tested me for bone grafts. It's a long process, but I never had any problems. I am all good and done. I've had four since I've started. They feel good. I've finally got teeth, so they feel really good, so I'm glad that I've had them done. Dr. Park is great — very accommodating, very welcoming, great sense of humor. Dr. Brown is very professional as well. He worked on me when Dr. Park could not. I would recommend Dr. Park or Dr. Brown for any of my family."

"My name is Michael Murphy. I live in Provo, Utah. I’ve lived here all my life. I recently came to Dr. Harris to have a dental implant put in my mouth. It’s the first one that I have ever had done. I was very impressed with the staff. They were very knowledgeable, very courteous. The wait time was minimal. It’s a beautiful office and a beautiful setting, and I can see they have the latest technology, and they’re updated. What I like about Dr. Harris is he is very outgoing, very friendly. The procedure was very pain free, very minimal, and it was very short. I was very pleased with the outcome. I would certainly come back and enjoy Dr. Harris’ office and his staff again anytime."

"My name is Stephanie. I live in Saratoga Springs. I had a tooth extracted with bone grafting, as well as a dental implant placed afterward. Utah Surgical Arts is a great place. They are friendly and kind, and they make sure to make sure that you feel comfortable and safe. Dr. Park is friendly, very easy to talk to, very easy to explain my situation and to make me feel comfortable. Both of the surgeries I had went great. I didn’t have any complications. I haven’t had to really worry about it since the surgery. For my friends and family in Saratoga Springs and Lehi, I highly recommend Utah Surgical Arts."

"Hi, I’m Lexi, and I’m from Springville, and I came to Utah Surgical Arts to get a bone graft and two dental implants. The atmosphere here is very friendly and overall very happy. Dr. Park was amazing. He accommodated everything to my needs and he always made sure I was comfortable and had the information that I needed, which made me feel very at ease during the procedures. The staff here are very friendly. They like to get to know you. I’ve always had a great experience with them. The procedure was very successful and I’m so happy with the results. The doctor had me in and out, and I was back on my feet in no time. If you live in Provo or Orem, I highly recommend coming to Utah Surgical Arts. They’ll take great care of you here."

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you put to sleep for dental implants?

We typically administer IV sedation, which puts patients into a semi-conscious state during surgery. Simple extractions, placements, and minor procedures may only require local anesthesia to numb the area.

Does food get stuck under dental implants?

Food can get stuck around or in between your replacement teeth, similar to your other teeth. Brush and floss twice daily and practice good oral hygiene to clear debris and keep your teeth clean.

How can I pay for dental implants?

To help make implant-based restoration accessible to more patients, Utah Surgical Arts accepts many forms of payment. For questions about how you can afford oral surgery, contact our office or visit our Financial and Insurance Information section.

Do dental implants hurt?

With the use of anesthesia or sedation, the procedure itself causes minimal discomfort. Following surgery, you can use ice packs and over-the-counter pain medication to handle any pain or swelling. We provide instructions to help you have a quick and smooth recovery following oral surgery.
