If missing teeth cause you to feel embarrassed about your smile or hinder your oral function, dental implants may be the best solution to revive your smile and restore your confidence. These small, metal posts are the closest prosthetic to natural tooth roots. They provide secure anchors on which we can mount replacement teeth. Made of biocompatible titanium, dental implants are biocompatible; your bone will integrate with the implant post over a few months.
Because of his training in reconstructive dentistry, Dr. David L. Duke performs both dental implant placement and restoration. We use digital imaging (linear tomography and iCAT) for case planning to precisely place dental implant posts, which increases the potential for success. First, he will surgically position the posts in your jaw. After your mouth heals and the bone has time to fuse to the implants, Dr. David L. Duke will position prosthetic crowns on top of the posts. Dental implants allow patients to eat their favorite, crunchy foods and smile with pride.
We look forward to improving your life with dental implants. Call us today and schedule your appointment with Dr. David L. Duke. Our dental office serves all of Bountiful with comprehensive, personalized care. For more about dental implants, visit our patient library.
