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.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
You can receive just one or an entire mouthful of implants. The All-on-4® treatment concept uses four implant posts to secure a fixed denture. Your treatment is specifically tailored to your individual needs.
Dental implants are the only restorative option that fuse to the jaw bone, actively preventing bone loss associated with missing teeth. Other options only sit on top of the bony ridge and do not prevent bone atrophy, dental shifting, or other problems.
With no moving or uncomfortable parts, you can enjoy your favorite foods. Removable dentures must be taken out during meals, but dental implants remain in your mouth at all times.
Without a complete smile, you may have felt the urge to hide your teeth. Now with dental implants, you can smile and eat with confidence and be proud of your healthy, fully 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.
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?
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.
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.
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
"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."
Lynette Reviews Her Dental Implant Procedure
"I had my daughter bring me a salad, and I took a bite and bit down on a bacon bit, and it broke my tooth in half right here. I went and saw Dr. Park, and he put me out, removed the rest of the tooth, did a bone graft, and then went in later and put in a titanium rod, and now my smile is all back. He was great to work with — happy, easy to talk to. I was really impressed that he would call and that Dr. Park would check on me and not just tell somebody to do it or it was their responsibility or whatever. He contacted me. I refer people here all the time and will continue to do that."
Hillary Reviews Her Dental Implant Procedure
"I am Hillary, and I am from Orem, Utah. I had a root canal gone wrong, and Dr. Harris is a family friend — he got me in and got me hooked up and fixed me up. My procedure was really easy; he just took out my tooth, put in a bone graft and let it heal up for a couple months, and then he put in a dental implant. So easy, it took, like, literally five minutes; it was so simple. I was actually really scared, but he was super great, and it went really fast. The staff is so great; they’re so nice and so comforting to you, and they just kind of adapt to your needs, and they’re just super friendly, always. My recovery was great; it was really simple, really fast. It wasn’t painful at all; just took a couple Advil, and it was great, and I was up going that same day. If any of my friends in Orem, Provo, or Payson needed a dental implant, I would definitely recommend Dr. Harris."
Matt Reviews His Dental Implant Procedure
"My name is Matt. I was having complications over nine months from a previous dentist giving me a root canal and then an extraction from a tooth as well as a bone graft and an implant. At the time, I started having problems with that area of my mouth and feeling neuropathy pain throughout my face and my chest. It was a nine-month process and really hard. An associate of Utah Surgical Arts gave me a consult and took a look at a couple of X-rays and noticed some things that the other dentists hadn’t seen and decided to go in and take a look because they had a pretty good idea of what was going on. They did an hour and a half surgery on me and changed the previous nine months of pain and within two days of surgery, my pain was subsiding dramatically and finally after a week, it was gone. After nine months, I have no one to thank but Utah Surgical Arts, and I wouldn't go anywhere else."
Jane Reviews Her Dental Implant Procedure
"Hi, my name is Jane Owen, and I live here in Provo, Utah. The reason why I came over here is to have an implant. I had a root canal and it did not work, and so I needed to get an implant. My best friend, her daughter works here, so they referred me here to Dr. Harris. He was very gentle when he did my implant. He explained everything that was going on — how I would have to have my bone grafted — and he told me that it would wait a while and the reason why you’d have to wait is so that your implant would be more perfected. He was kind to me, and he did not waste my time, and I really appreciate that."
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.
