Dental Implants - West Jordan

Updated on March 16, 2017

You can Improve Your Smile!

There are many great reasons to sport a beautiful smile. When you smile, you are seen as being more attractive, which enhances your social and professional standing. People pay attention to other people who have great smiles. Smiling changes our moods and helps to diffuse tense situations. Smiling even helps to lower blood pressure. One of the first things people notice is your smile. If your smile is timid or you are self conscious about your smile, people will pick up on this and it could affect the way others interact with you.

So, as you can see having a great smile has many benefits. Unfortunately, not everyone has a great smile, in fact, the majority of people are uncomfortable about at least one thing with their smile. For a variety of reasons, there are plenty of people out there who have lost teeth, have discolored teeth or have misaligned teeth. When you're missing teeth in particular it is hard to smile with confidence. That is why the implementation of dental implants is so important. You can fix missing or badly damaged teeth without affecting the teeth on either side of the tooth in question. You can get a dental implant and solve al of your smile issues without affecting the surrounding healthy teeth.

Dental Implants - West Jordan

What do you do if you've lost some of your upper or lower teeth, or both? In the past, dentures have been the only viable alternative for replacing missing teeth.

The problem with dentures, however, is the extra time and care needed to care for them. They need to come out every night to be soaked in a cleaning solution. Then of course, after they're out, you're done eating for the night.

Speaking of eating, you have to take special care to make sure no food comes between your dentures and your gums or you'll feel plenty of discomfort.

Advances in dental technology have given people with missing teeth other options. Dental implants now serve as a great, an permanent way to replace missing teeth. Dental implants attach directly to the bones in your mouth.

If you are missing teeth and would like to know more about dental implants, it's a good idea to speak to your dentist. Candidates for dental implants have good, solid bone structure and strong immune systems.

The process of adding dental implants takes several visits, and weeks to complete but when the implant process is completed, the new teeth have the same look and feel as natural teeth.

Don't let missing teeth ruin your confidence. With dental implants there is no reason to continue hiding your smile. After your implants have taken hold and healed, you can show your nice big smile, feeling attractive and confident.

If you are missing out on your beautiful smile and live in the West Jordan, Utah area, check out Salt Lake Smiles Dentistry.


I had a tooth pulled when I was overseas and they didn't have the technology to fix my tooth as they would've in the states, so they just pulled it. I was in immense pain and really didn't have any other options. So it was a molar and I was stuck with a gap in my right lower section of molars.

The dentists all told me, all we can do is make a bridge. That's where they shave down the two teeth on either side of the missing tooth and build a "bridge" that looks like 3 teeth. I didn't want to damage 2 more perfectly ok teeth to fill this gap so I did nothing.

Eventually I heard they came out with dental implants so I went in to see if I could do something like this for my missing tooth. Luckily for me, I was able to get a dental implant. Now I don't have a gap in my chewing surface and can open my mouth fully without worrying about that big gap that I had in my teeth.

About the process

If you live in Salt Lake City or the surrounding areas, you may want to get a free consultation at Salt Lake Smiles. The pricing on Dental Implants can vary immensely and some second or third opinions can be worth the wait. Also most insurance companies don't cover dental implants yet so when you are spending the money right out of your pocket, its important to get the full value from your hard earned dollar.

Another aspect to remember is that not all dentist's are proficient at dental implants. You want to make sure you have a dentist who does them regularly and has done a lot of them. This way you can make sure you are getting a great job on your dental implant.

I tell people to look at it like veneers or braces. You want to make sure you are getting a great job at a great price. If you are getting veneers you want to make sure the dentist doing them can make your smile look great, not someone who is just going to slap them on.

I think its important to get a dentist who cares about you and the way you are going to feel after your smile is fixed. Some dentist just want to make their paycheck and go home, but some dentists really do care about people and experience true joy when they see their patients feel great and confident with their new smile. That's the kind of dentist you want and the only way to find out if that is the way your dentist is to walk in to his office and meet him and have a consultation.
