Dental Implants

Do you live with dental pain, missing teeth, and difficulty chewing? You may find relief with dental implants.

Implants offer stability for natural-looking restorations, like crowns and dentures. While not all dentists place them, ours does.

If you're ready to begin, come meet Dr. Scott Updyke and the rest of our caring dental team in Salt Lake City, UT.

Dental Implants Offer Unparalleled...

A Lifetime of Support From One Simple Solution

Dental implants are made from high-quality materials like titanium and ceramics. They replace the natural roots of your tooth, fusing with your jawbone and gums. Once the process is complete, abutments are used to attach the dental implants to your custom restoration. Wonder how implant osseointegration works? Take a look.

A Dentist You Can Trust Throughout the Implant Process

Many dentists are unqualified to place dental implants, leading them to refer out for treatment.

Dr. Updyke, on the other hand, has all of the training and education necessary to complete every step of the implant process, from periodontal treatment, to implant placement, to restoration creation and attachment. He's also well-known throughout the Salt Lake County dental community: fellow dentists elected him as the President of the Salt Lake Dental Society.

Dr. Updyke truly cares about you and your well-being, which is why he accepts financing and offers free consultations. To maintain the high standard of care you deserve, he also continues to learn about teeth, techniques, and technology at dentistry lectures.

Finally, he offers comprehensive care, such as cleanings to maintain your new smile, giving you a dentist you can visit for years to come.

How Do I Know If Implants Are Right for Me?

Our dentist is happy to discuss implant candidacy with you in person at our Salt Lake City office. Until then, we can give you a quick idea of the typical implant patient. Strong candidates for dental implants typically have the following qualities:

Missing Teeth

A patient with a missing tooth or teeth may be able to rejuvenate their smile with implants, an abutment, and a dental restoration. Our restorations are made out of lifelike materials, allowing them to blend in with your natural teeth and completely cover your dental implant.

Decayed Teeth

If you have a decayed tooth or teeth that cannot be saved with a root canal or other dental treatments, they can be extracted. Once the area around your tooth has healed, Dr. Updyke can place a titanium implant.

Healthy Gums

Periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss, and unfortunately, it can also prevent dentistry patients from being implant candidates. With periodontal care from Dr. Updyke, though, implants can still be possible.

Strong Jawbone

If your jaw does not have enough strong bone in place, then an implant may not be able to fuse with it. However, bone grafting can strengthen your jaw, giving it the material it needs to support a dental implant.

Not Ready for Implants? We Can Help


Your oral health comes first here. Even if you're not currently a candidate for implants, our dentist offers treatments to restore the oral health of your smile, like periodontal care for your gums. Once your mouth and gums are healthy again, you can explore dental implants.

His staff, from receptionist, to dental assstant, to dental hygienist, are very professional, yet extremely friendly, making the entire "visit to the dentist" less daunting. I have referred many friends who are now patients of Dr. Updyke.
