Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth or support any denture. Think of it as an artificial tooth root similar to a screw. Once implants are placed into your jawbone they bond with your natural bone creating a sturdy base for supporting artificial teeth. The success rate of dental implants is over 98%.  Studies show implant longevity to be greater than 20 years.

What is the process?

If one or more of your teeth are missing, you may qualify for a dental implant as a way to permanently replace the missing teeth. Schedule and appointment and we’ll give you an oral evaluation. The doctor will then evaluate your jaw and see if you qualify for an implant. We need your jaw bone to be strong. For most patients this requires two surgical procedures. 

First, implants are placed into your jaw bone. During the next 3-6 months the implant is slowly bonding with the jaw bone creating a strong bond. Once your implant and jaw bone are bonded the second phase can begin.

Second, the dentist will attach a small healing collar. Attachments can then be added, which will then connect to the replacement teeth. The operation normally takes about 8 months and patients do not experience any daily disturbance.

Advantages From Getting an Implant

Already undergone endodontic surgery? An endodontic retreatment may alleviate pain, and help promote healing. If you think your tooth requires retreatment after a root canal, contact your Spanish Fork, UT endodontist and schedule an evaluation.

Like with all medical procedures, results do not always turn out as planned, and slow healing or infection is always possible for many reasons:

  • The first procedure failed to treat curved or narrow canals.
  • There is a complex canal anatomy that was either undetected or difficult to treat.
  • There was a delay in tooth restoration with a dental crown or filling after root canal therapy.
  • The restoration failed to protect against tooth contamination.

A new dental condition can also endanger a tooth that had successfully undergone root canal treatment, such as:

  • Newly developed decay can expose the filling to bacteria, and lead to a new tooth infection in the same tooth.
  • A loose, broken or cracked dental crown or filling can expose the treated tooth to new infection after a root canal.
  • A tooth fracture or other dental trauma.

Advantages From Getting an Implant

There are many advantages from getting an implant; Implants can last a lifetime, an implant will behave just like a natural tooth, It is a very common procedure with a very high success rate, They provide healthy teeth and protect facial bone, and implants let you smile with pride!

    Staff is wonderful and I can’t say enough positive things about Dr Leaver. I was having horrible teeth pain on Sunday and he told me to come in and he’d take a look. He was able to locate the problem tooth and stop the pain! So so grateful. Alpine dental is the best. Highly recommend!

    My first visit and I really liked everyone there. The hygenist, Lara, did a better job cleaning my teeth than anyone ever has. Dr. Leaver was thorough and helpful and open for discussion and questions. A safe and friendly environment.

    It is rare to find a place of business that is a good experience. From experience a Dental visit is bad news and expensive. I have bad teeth. The best part about Alpine Dental, is everybody cares. They’re glad to see you. No one complains about having to be there. They are overly attentive, that you pass the don’t want to bother them stage, to you really know they care and want to help. Dr. Leaver always keeps you informed, explains until he knows you understand, tells you what to expect and does really try to get the best improvement for long term at the best price. I was referred to him because I was on my 3rd dentist since I moved from Cache Valley. The best part is they get along so well they seem like a family and they made me feel like part of they’re family. He can help anybody. I would highly recommend Alpine Dental.

    I sincerely enjoy Alpine Dental. It probably helps that I brush and floss daily 🙂 but they are professional and friendly. It is a warm, comfortable environment where I get all my questions answered and of course great dental care. Dr Lever is great as is my Hygienist Brittany. Thanks to both of them and the front desk staff for a first class experience. I highly recommend Alpine Dental. Thanks!!

    Very thoughtful with their precautions during this pandemic. As always, staff has been top of the line, friendly, personable - they don't feel like strangers at all like I was used to with other dentist offices. I love the appointment reminder texts as well.

    The best dental care my family and I have ever received. Which would explain why we’ve been going to Alpine Dental for the last fourteen years. In addition to giving such great care, they have the latest equipment/technology and the best staff EVER. You’ll never want to go anywhere else. 🙂

    I had an emergency visit to Alpine Dental today.. They went up and beyond to get me in the same day I called. Then upon my arrival I was greeted with the nicest and most professional Dental assistant. She stayed with me throughout my entire visit. She was far more than considerate, making sure to explain in detail, everything that was going to take place. When Dr. Leaver come into the room that same caring and considerate care continued. It was wonderful to experience the feeling that everyone in the office truly cared about what was the best way to help me. I was so comfortable that I felt like I had known all of them for years as cherished friends. I have never felt this way before about a dental office. It truly was a welcomed change. You will never regret going to Alpine Dental. They will have me as a client for life.
