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, Dr. Wood, and Dr. Holladay 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.
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.

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
Sadey Reviews Her Dental Implant Procedure
"My name is Sadey. I’m from Mapleton, Utah. I have seen Dr. Harris for extractions. I’ve also seen Dr. Park for an extraction and placement of a dental implant, and bone grafting. I felt like the practice was very inviting, very relaxing. I was very nervous before I came in, but I felt confident in the doctors and their responses to me. They were educated and knew the procedure very well. The staff here was super friendly, they were very warm, they were efficient, but I didn’t feel rushed in any way. My dental implant has been amazing. I have not had any complications. I would give Utah Surgical Arts five stars. I had a great experience here, and I highly recommend Utah Surgical Arts."
Richard Reviews His Dental Implant Procedure
"My name’s Richard Willis, and I’ve come to Utah Surgical Arts for a number of different procedures — implants and things. I’ve been really impressed with the professionalism of their team, how they handle everything from greetings to . . . . My wife’s been very happy about her relationship here when she’s had to come back and pick me up from sleep sedation after various procedures. Well, I think that a short commute from anywhere in the valley would be easily well worth the time to get the quality of care that you get here at Utah Surgical Arts."
Colleen Reviews Her Dental Implant Procedure
"Well, I had gone to see my dentist and had some problems with my teeth, and they needed to be extracted. Dr. Park was wonderful to go through and explain everything, and that really helped me decide that those were the things that I needed to have done. It really helped to ease my nerves when I knew that Dr. Park was a medical doctor as well as a dentist. I think the extraction went well. I have my crowns in, and it has been wonderful to be able to eat again and to have it feel normal. I have recommended my family and friends to Dr. Park because he has been fabulous."

Stephanie Reviews Her Dental Implant Procedure
"Hi, my name is Stephanie. I’m from Spanish Fork. I just recently had two implants done from Dr. Harris. I had the best experience going under. It was easy; I didn’t wake up groggy. My son, who is 17, just recently had his wisdom teeth pulled out, and what a great experience that was for him! I tell all of my friends in Spanish Fork, Highland, Alpine, Salt Lake City to come to Utah Surgical Arts. It really is the best experience. "
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.
