If you are missing one or more teeth, a dental implant in Layton and Centerville, Utah, may be just what you need to return your smile to its full potential. A dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement that is surgically placed in the jawbone for a lasting, stable restoration. Our dentists, Dr. Grant Brough and Dr. Spencer Pugmire, performs the entire procedure in our office and uses CEREC and cone beam CT X-ray technology for a guided surgical process to make the procedure safe and predictable.

If you prefer, Dr. Brough and Dr. Pugmire can work with a local oral surgeon to place the implant post. This portion of the dental implant replaces the root of the missing tooth and ensures that your dental implant feels and functions like your natural teeth. We allow a healing period after the placement so that your gums and jawbone can heal. During this time, the jawbone will also begin to fuse with the titanium implant in a process called osseointegration.

Several months after your implant anchor and post have been placed, you will be ready to receive your implant restoration. This restoration could be a crown, denture or fixed bridge, depending on your dental needs. At your appointment, Dr. Brough or Dr. Pugmire will precisely place your restoration to ensure optimal cosmetic and functional results. This will restore the beauty and function of your smile.
