Dental Implants

Losing a tooth has a significant negative impact on the health and appearance of your smile.

Dental implants can be used to replace any number of missing teeth, restoring the health, aesthetics, and function of your bite.

Dr. Ryan K. Austin expertly places implants at our offices in Brigham City and South Ogden, UT. Could implants be right for you?

How Dental Implants Work

How Dental Implants Work

Aren't Dental Implants Expensive? Flexible Financing Options Make Implants Affordable

At our offices in South Ogden and Brigham City, our prices are very competitive. Also, we only charge a single flat fee for implant treatment, which covers an initial consult, a CT scan, the implant itself, and the abutment. There are no surprise charges with us.

Some dental and medical insurance plans may contribute towards a portion of implant treatment. Our experienced team can help you make sense of your policy and maximize your benefits. For costs that are not covered by insurance, we can help you secure financing through CareCredit®. We also offer discounts to patients who choose to pay with cash.

While the upfront costs associated with dental implants may be higher than those of traditional dental restorations, the long-term benefits and durability of implants can actually save you money in the long run. If you have any questions about the costs of this form of dentistry, please contact us today.

Living in a small town, I’m used to traveling to see a specialist. I’m so grateful my dentist recommended Dr. Ryan Austin! He has an office on the south end of Brigham City. They were able to get me in quickly and I was so impressed with the whole team. My surgery went great and Dr. Austin called my that night to check on me. When I had questions later during the next week I was able to text him and he responded promptly. He is careful and thorough. He is also kind and personable. I definitely recommend him to anyone! Thank you to the team there who made my surgery day, not so scary.

Made me comfortable (I have a fear of dentists), made lots of jokes, and his assistant was able to answer all of my questions. They even fit me in last minute! Enjoyed my time in this office!

Dental Implant Treatment Timeline

Throughout the process, we will coordinate with your primary dentist to ensure your treatment is as efficient and stress-free as possible.

Day of Procedure

Throughout the process, we will coordinate with your primary dentist to ensure your treatment is as efficient and stress-free as possible.

Anesthesia

Local anesthesia will be administered to numb the treatment area. Dental sedation options are also available to help patients relax during implant surgery.

Jawbone Access

Dr. Austin will create small incisions in the gums. This allows access to the jawbone so the implants can be placed in the correct locations.

Site Preparation

Using a series of state-of-the-art dental instruments, Dr. Austin will create a small opening in the bone ridge to prepare the site for dental implant placement.

Implant Placement

Dr. Austin will strategically place the titanium posts, which serve as replacement tooth roots, into the prepared sites. We offer many different kinds of implants, so we'll be able to choose the perfect option for your situation. The incisions will then be closed with sutures.

Healing Period

Following placement, the bone tissue must fuse with the titanium implant. This process, called osseointegration, takes about three to six months to complete.

Abutment Placement

Once osseointegration is complete, Dr. Austin will attach a small connector piece known as an abutment to each implant.

Placement of Final Restoration

After the abutments have been added, your gums may need a few weeks to heal. Then, your dentist will attach your crown, bridge, or denture to your implants.

Candidacy for Dental Implants

Patients considering dental implants must be in good overall health and should not have any medical conditions that could make surgery a risk. Individuals should also be free from extensive tooth decay or gum disease, as these issues can have a negative impact on the success of treatment.

If you do not have sufficient bone tissue to support implants, Dr. Austin can perform a bone grafting procedure at our oral surgery practices in Brigham City and South Ogden, UT. We will work with your dentist to ensure you are ready to undergo implant surgery.
