The Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures

Dental Implants

Although dentures are a highly effective form of tooth replacement treatment, in some situations, they may be hindering the ability for your mouth to function properly. Issues with impaired chewing, speaking, and eating skills may arise if your dentures are not stable. To combat this problem, [practice_name] would like to offer you implant-supported dentures.

Implant-supported dentures are highly effective for replacing multiple missing teeth.  Our team of oral and facial surgeons is highly skilled at placing implant-supported dentures to prevent issues that may arise with traditional dentures, including issues where they become loose or slide out of position. With the help of our team of highly skilled professionals, we can offer you a cost-effective solution to improve your quality of life in regard to your oral health and functions thereof.

In order to place implant-supported dentures, the implants must first be placed. If your jaw is not strong enough for implants, bone grafting procedures may be necessary. Typically, 4 to 6 dental implants are required per denture. Once the implants are in place, dentures can be attached to the top of the implants. With implant-supported dentures, we can assure you that your smile will drastically improve for a lifetime of satisfaction.

If you are looking to restore your smile with implant-supported dentures, or enhance your smile further, contact our team at Aspire Surgical. We can be reached by  phone to book a reservation to see us at our office in the Salt Lake area and Heber. Our doctors are here to help you make the most of your oral health.

Enhance Your Smile with TMJ Treatments

TMJ Pain

When thinking about how important your jaw is to your oral health, it’s best to understand the factors behind it. Within each jaw lies a joint known a temporomandibular joint, also called a TMJ. TMJs are responsible for the array of movement that our mouth requires for opening our mouths and chewing. Thus, they can be damaged at times due to excess wear and tear, which will need treatment as soon as possible.

Enhance your smile with TMJ treatments. To learn more about TMJs, please read the following:

– If your mouth takes frequent damage, TMJ disorders can arise. It is important to stop all bad habits that could make it worse, including chewing gum, eating hard foods, or even biting your nails.
– As is the case with many TMJ disorders, common side effects include pain, discomfort, or swelling. Different types of treatments to use include ice packs for pain and heat packs for swelling.
– If your TMJ is causing you jaw pain, there may be an underlying illness within your mouth or body contributing to it.
– In order to better help you cope with the stress and anxiety that is often connected to TMJ disorders, try practicing yoga or biofeedback.

Come in and see for yourself the effectiveness of TMJ treatments provided by our oral surgeons. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Maak, Dr. Shamo, Dr. Stosich, and our team, call Aspire Surgical and a member of our team will gladly assist you. The time is now to approach the rest of your life with a smile!

Have You Extracted Your Wisdom Teeth? Here Are Some Recovery Tips

Extracted Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom tooth extraction is a beneficial but also invasive dental treatment. If you’re not careful, there are consequences that can occur that can make your life a bit difficult. So, to help you prevent complications and properly recover following wisdom tooth extraction in Salt Lake City, our dental team has some tips for you.

Tip No. 1: Stop the bleeding and reduce the swelling. You can stop the bleeding by placing a piece of gauze on the surgical site. When it’s there, bite down for about 45 minutes. Once the pad is full of blood, please remove it and place a clean pad on the area. To reduce the swelling, ice outside the area with an ice pack or bag of frozen vegetables. It’s best to ice it for 15 minutes and then take a 15-minute break. Repeat this process until the swelling subsides.

Tip No. 2: Take the necessary medications. Your dentist should have given you pain medication following your surgery. If this is the case for you, please take the medication as recommended. If not, feel free to take over-the-counter painkillers.

Tip No. 3: Have a soft-foods diet. It’s best to avoid eating hard and crunchy foods and stick to eating soft foods, like mashed potatoes, yogurt, ice cream, etc. This can help you avoid creating issues in the area.

If you have any questions about how to properly recover after your wisdom teeth have been removed, please call Aspire Surgical at your earliest convenience. Our dental team is here to help you in any way we can, and we look forward to giving you the answers you need to properly recover!

Youthen Your Appearance with BOTOX®

Smooth Skin and Botox

Wrinkles tend to begin appearing in the upper area of the face when an individual is in their mid-thirties. These lines, which are commonly referred to as worry lines, frown lines, or crow’s feet, make the individual appear older and can also make the person appear tired, or even mean. If you would like to restore the youthful appearance of your face, ask Dr. Stosich, Dr. Fullmer, and Dr. Maak about BOTOX® in Salt Lake City, Utah.

What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is a minimally-invasive procedure that stops muscle movement in specific areas to relax the face and decrease the appearance of wrinkles and lines. In addition to being used for lines and wrinkles, Botulinum Toxin, or BOTOX, can be used in several clinical uses.

What is the BOTOX procedure?
BOTOX stops the transmission of the nerve impulse to the muscles. In this way, it keeps the muscles from working for a period of time. Our cosmetic surgeons are educated in the anatomy of the muscles of the face and know which muscles to treat and at what dosage.

Do the injections hurt?
BOTOX injections are delivered through very fine needles. Because of this, most patients tolerate the injections very well. If you are sensitive to needles, ask our cosmetic surgeons about a local anesthetic cream that can be applied before treatment.

When will I see results?
BOTOX results usually start to appear in three to five days. However, results may take up to a week to start to become apparent. Fine wrinkles tend to disappear right away and deeper ones tend to take more time.

We invite you to contact our office today for more information about BOTOX and to schedule a visit.
