Bone Grafting Treatments to End Your Year with a Smile

As the holiday feasts and festivities begin to show themselves this season, it is important to make sure your oral health is in great care, and you have a complete smile to enjoy all of the delectable delights that the snow-filled season has to offer. If you have any lost or missing teeth, it is important to make sure they are replaced with effective prosthetics that are durable and strong. If you are in need of a dental implant, but your jaw is not strong enough to hold them, and oral surgery using a bone graft will be necessary.

Bone grafting is extremely popular for dental implants because it allows your jaw to be strengthened to the point it can adequately hold a dental implant in place. According to the American Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, if your jawbone is too soft, too fragile, or too thin, a bone graft is recommended prior to dental implant placements.

A bone graft works by taking part of a bone from one section of your body and grafting it onto your jawbone. Artificial prosthetic bone grafting materials can also be used. Not only will bone grafts strengthen your jaw bone, but they will also improve your oral health. Although a bone graft often takes several months before it can strengthen to the point your jaw is strong enough to hold an implant, it is well worth it to give you the satisfaction and joy you require heading into next year.

If you are in need of a bone grafting treatment or would like to come in for an examination to determine your candidacy for the service. Contact Aspire Surgical at our office in Salt Lake. With the help of our docotors and our team, a bone grafting treatment can be used to help progress your mouth towards a full smile. Have a ‘spooktacular’ Halloween and a happy holiday season!

Oral Health ABCs: Dental Implants

Dental Impants

With the upcoming holiday seasons set to fall upon us, it is important to take the time to ensure your smile is functioning at its maximum potential. If you are suffering from any missing teeth, your oral health can decline. One particular tooth replacement treatment that is highly effective at restoring your smile is via single-tooth dental implants.

Dental implants are artificial replacements designed to fill out your smile by taking the place of missing teeth. They can be customized and modified to fit exactly as necessary and can be shaded to mimic the natural color of your teeth. Other replacement treatments such as dentures may move around within your mouth if you bite into foods that are too or chewy, but dental implants run zero risks of tooth slippage. Thus, dental implants have zero food restrictions, so you can enjoy all the meals that you have come to know and love.

Individuals suffering from missing teeth are likely to notice negative impacts to their facial structure and gums as well. When you are missing teeth, your facial structure will appear older and more sunken in. Furthermore, missing teeth can cause your gums to destabilize, which can result in nearby or neighboring teeth moving or shifting out of position. Dental implants seek to reverse both of these ailments, making you look younger and healthier in the process.

If you are interested in single-tooth dental implants, please call Aspire Surgical so we can get you in as soon as possible. We have 7 convenient office locations. Have a fantastic day!

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.
