At Precision Dental Specialties we offer several implant-related treatments to replace one or more missing teeth. We specialize in implant treatment because we believe that dental implants are the ideal solution for tooth loss.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a titanium screw that we surgically embed deep into the jawbone. Once the implant is in place, it will slowly fuse to your jaw through the process of osseointegration. After a brief healing period, the implant screw will be able to support a restoration against the strongest forces of your bite. Dental implants can be used to support a single crown, a partial bridge, and a full-arch restoration.
We offer the All-on-4® treatment concept for patients missing all or most of their teeth. As the name suggests, this full-arch restoration only uses four implants to support the entire bridge. The posterior (back) implants are placed at an angle to utilize the strongest part of the jawbone. Other full-arch restorations usually require six to eight implants. Thanks to the revolutionary new technique, All-on-4 is much more effective and minimally-invasive than other options.
We believe patient education is the cornerstone of good oral health. During your initial appointment, Dr. Scott E. Bulloch will be happy to answer any questions you have regarding dental implants. This is also an excellent opportunity for you to voice any concerns. Staying informed can help you better maintain your restoration and prevent potential problems.
An implant-supported denture is similar to All-on-4 but usually requires more implants. We may recommend an implant-supported denture if you want a better alternative to traditional dentures. A traditional denture is a removable appliance that rests on the gums. Because it is not secured by implants, many patients experience difficulty eating, discomfort, and even embarrassing slips.
Successful implant treatment requires a sufficient amount of bone in the jaw. We may recommend a bone graft if your bone is too thin or too soft to support an implant. A graft can help restore deteriorated bone, and give you a second chance at implant treatment!
If you are missing a tooth, you may be wondering what to do next. At Precision Dental Specialties, we believe a single tooth implant replacement may be the answer. Dental implants have become the industry standard when it comes to tooth replacements.
At Precision Dental Specialties, we specialize in restorations designed to replace multiple missing teeth. The type of restoration you receive depends on your circumstance. More often than not, we recommend an implant-related solution.
Zygomatic dental implant surgery is a complex and highly specialized oral surgery, recommended to only be performed by an experienced Oral Surgeon. Dr. Scott E. Bulloch has been successfully placing zygomatic implants for several years. He is one of very few oral surgeons in the state fully trained and experienced in the placement of zygomatic implants and has treated patients from throughout Utah and several surrounding states.
Our cutting-edge materials and equipment provide the safest and most effective results. Implant screws, the anchors of your restoration, can now be fabricated using non-metal materials such as zirconia. We use a name-brand product, NobelPearl™ implants because they have become synonymous with excellence. A NobelPearl implant is a 100% metal-free implant solution that provides a new alternative to titanium.
