Dental Implants

Tooth loss can make people feel self-conscious and impact dental function, inhibiting their ability to speak clearly and eat what they want.

At Stubbs Dental in Bountiful, Layton, Murray, and Lehi we can restore an incomplete smile by replacing missing teeth with dental implants.

If You Have One or Several Missing Teeth, You Are Not Alone

*According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.

Tooth loss can occur for a variety of reasons, including facial trauma, gum disease, or an infection inside the tooth. Another authority on oral health, the American College of Prosthodontists, estimates that over 36 million people nationwide do not have any remaining teeth

I love Stubbs. They have replaced three of my teeth now... I have been a patient at Stubbs in Bountiful for over 3 years now. They are wonderful! Best hygenist I have ever had (46 years old). They have made it affordable to have 3 implants done and the quality is great. I drive a little out of my way to get to their office because they are good...

Are You a Candidate? Implants Are a Versatile Option

At our offices in Bountiful, Layton, Lehi, and Murray, titanium and ceramic implants can provide relief for patients suffering from a range of oral health issues:

Irreparably Damaged Teeth

Although our dentists will always try to save your natural teeth, there are some cases where an extraction in preparation for an implant may be the best treatment option.

A Single Missing Tooth

If you lose a permanent tooth due to sudden trauma or severe decay, a dental implant with a custom implant-supported dental crown can help you regain a complete smile.

Widespread Tooth Loss

If you are missing several teeth in a row, our team can provide an implant-supported dental bridge that is fixed directly to your jawbone. For patients who are missing one or both arches of teeth, we can place natural-looking implant-supported dentures.

Other Qualifying Factors

Healthy Gums 

Patients should be completely free from gum disease. When an oral infection is present, it can seriously hinder the long-term success of implants. 

Good Oral Hygiene 

Implants are impervious to decay, but patients are still vulnerable to gum disease. Patients must be willing to practice excellent at-home care and maintenance. 

Adequate Bone Density

An implant requires a solid foundation so patients considering this treatment option should have healthy, strong bone tissue. If not, a bone graft procedure can be performed.

Good Overall Health

Individuals seeking implant treatment should not have any serious medical conditions, particularly diseases that could inhibit the body’s natural healing response.

I just had my final appointment for the 4 on 4 dentures today. I couldn’t be happier with the results. I’ve had problems with my lower teeth due to old failing bridges that I had for many years. I couldn’t afford individual implants so the chance of fixing my lower teeth with 4 implants was encouraging. I highly recommend Stubbs Dental! They have been fantastic to work with. Thank you Dr K and staff in Layton for taking such great after care of me!

Is Dental Implant Surgery Painful? Sedation Dentistry Helps You Relax

At Stubbs Dental, we want you to feel comfortable and relaxed throughout treatment so we offer two forms of sedation dentistry. These options allow us to help you reach a comfortable state even if you have dental phobia, difficulty sitting still, or are undergoing a particularly lengthy procedure.

General Anesthesia

Patients who choose general anesthesia will be under the care of a licensed anesthesiologist who can monitor your safety and comfort during treatment.

A patient undergoing IV sedation

IV Sedation

Intravenous medication provides deep sedation that puts patients into a twilight state where they can still communicate with our dentists during the procedure.

Dental Implant Treatment Timeline Step-by-Step

The length of time involved in your dental implant journey will vary based on a number of factors, most notably whether you choose traditional or All-on-4 implants. Traditional treatments may require that you wait several months before receiving your restoration. This depends on the amount of treatment needed to qualify for dental implant surgery.

In contrast, the All-on-4 technique reduces the treatment timeline for patients. We are proud to have patients walk out of our office with a full set of fully functioning teeth in just one visit. The team at Stubbs Dental in Bountiful, Layton, Lehi, and Murray, Utah, will provide complete guidance and care throughout your entire treatment process. 

Planning Your Treatment

Before you begin your procedure, you will have a complete consultation. You will discuss your medical and dental history with your dentist, and receive a thorough evaluation of your teeth, gums, jaw, and overall health.

Prerequisite Procedures

In some cases, patients may require a preparatory procedure before the implants can be placed. These treatments may include periodontal care for gum disease or bone grafting to rebuild lost tissue in the jaw.

Placing Implants

The length of your procedure can vary. Typically, it can take one hour if just one implant is placed, while multiple implant placement takes two to three hours. Compromised teeth can often be extracted at the same time that the implants are placed for added convenience. 

Recovery

You may experience some minor bleeding, swelling, and discomfort. These side effects are normal after implant placement and should subside within a few days. For traditional dental implant patients, it takes about four to six months for your jawbone to fuse with the implant posts in a process called osseointegration. During this healing phase, you may have follow-up appointments with your doctor to monitor your progress and ensure you experience safe and speedy healing.

Restoration

Once your recovery is complete, you will return to have your custom-made restoration placed at our dental practice. Your dentist will check your restoration, and if no adjustments are necessary, he will attach your new teeth to the implants. You will leave our office with full dental functionality and an attractive smile.

What Do Dental Implants Cost?

If you are considering your tooth replacement options, you may have questions about the cost of this treatment. By performing every stage of the implant process in our office, we are able to significantly lower your cost while maintaining the highest quality. Our affordable dental implant solutions allow our dentists to frequently perform these procedures so we can continuously refine our approach and improve our skills. The dynamic pairing of cost-consciousness and exceptional care have made our practice a destination for implant dentistry.

The specifics of treatment that can impact overall costs include:

Preparatory Procedures

Procedures required to prepare your hard and soft tissues for implant surgery include periodontal care, extractions, or bone grafting. These require additional costs that are added to your dental implant treatment.

Number of Implants

Depending on the extent of tooth loss you have experienced and the type of restoration you need, you may need more implants. For example, an implant-supported crown only requires a single implant.

Size of Restoration

Typically, smaller restorations cost less than those required to replace an entire dental arch. Additionally, you will need to consider the types of materials used for your restoration which can increase the cost.

Type of Sedation

For preparatory procedures, you may only require nitrous oxide or oral sedation. However, intravenous sedation or general anesthesia is recommended for implant surgery. Both of these options are more costly than milder forms of sedation.

When weighing the costs and benefits, many patients go forward with the procedure, concluding that it is worth the investment. It is difficult to place a dollar amount on such a positive change to the appearance and functionality of your smile and quality of life. While dental plants have a much higher up-front cost, you can actually save money over a lifetime due to the reduced need for repairs and ongoing restorative procedures.
