Type Of Dental Implants
Our office thrives on utilizing only the most advanced technology, including 3D digital imaging, to perform your dental restoration. Through the use of these technologies, our dentists can more precisely address and treat your oral needs and improve the health of your smile all in the comfort of our dental office. This commitment to technology extends to the dental implants that we offer. No matter the extent of oral decay, our team of dental implant specialists near the American Fork and Orem communities will design the treatment plan ideal for your smile. Our goal is to not only improve the aesthetics of your smile but protect and preserve your oral health as well.
Full-Body Dental Implants
There is nothing that can completely replace a set of healthy teeth once lost, but now there is a wider variety of options that can restore aesthetics and function to your smile. Full-body dental implants are titanium, man-made roots that act as anchors for replacement teeth. The technique of surgically implanting the artificial root begins by preparing a hole in the jawbone through which the implant is placed and screwed into position. The gum tissue is then sutured on top of the implant.
With full-body dental implants, the bone and titanium screw must fuse together prior to a dental prosthetic being placed on the exposed portion of the implant post. Dental implants provide a more permanent solution to slipping, ill-fitting dentures and removable dental bridges and crowns.
Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are less expensive than traditional dental implants, and most types of dentures can be secured to them. With the latest technology, you can have your entire smile transformed in as little as an hour with mini dental implants. Not only can the titanium screws be installed in a single visit to our dental facility but your custom-designed dentures can also be attached and secured prior to you leaving our office. No osseointegration process (during which the implant post and bone fuse together) is necessary.
Immediate-Load Dental Implants
During the time of your tooth extraction, immediate-load dental implants can safely be installed. Combining the procedures significantly cuts down on surgical time and recovery time. After one visit, not only will you leave our practice with newly installed implants, you will leave with a fully restored smile complete with custom-crafted dental prosthetics.

Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?
At Lexington Heights Dental, we evaluate each patient’s smile prior to recommending dental implants. By doing so, we can design a conservative, comprehensive treatment plan that enhances the beauty and improves the health of your smile. Dental implants work well on patients of all ages and may be right for you if you:
- Are missing one or more teeth due to disease, decay or injury
- Can no longer wear removable dentures
- Have a fully developed jawbone
- Have had a bone graft
- Have sufficient jawbone density
- Have healthy gums
- Are committed to managing the health of your smile and maintaining optimal oral hygiene so infection does not occur around the implant site
There are several factors that Dr. Lohner will evaluate when determining if dental implants are the ideal treatment option for you. Typically, the general health of the patient must be evaluated, the oral health of the patient must be relatively good, vital structures near or around the implant site must be healthy, and harmful oral habits (including grinding or clenching of the teeth) must be addressed.
