Many patients who have suffered tooth loss also suffer bone loss over time that can cost them their dental health. If you have lost a tooth or had one extracted, we invite you to consider receiving a dental implant. Dental implants can return the strong and functional smile that tooth loss may have taken away.

The ability of a dental implant to both fill an empty space in your smile and prevent the occurrence of bone loss makes it a very effective option for tooth replacement. To place a dental implant, our dentist surgically attaches it to the jawbone so that it can fuse with the bone and form a strong bond. To complete the look of your dental implant, we will attach a dental restoration that complements the number of teeth needing to be replaced. Your options can include a single dental crown, dental bridge, or dentures.

If you are interested in receiving dental implants in Orem, Utah, we invite you to call 801-225-8060 today and schedule a time to see Dr. Keith Dodge at Dodge Family Dental. Our dentist can provide you with a full review of your tooth replacement options and help you determine which course of action would most benefit your personal dental health. We look forward to seeing you!
