Drs. Harris and Park are specialists in bone grafting and in the placement of dental implants.

If you have lost one or multiple teeth, dental implants are an excellent choice to restore function and appearance. While dental implants are not the only option for tooth replacement, they offer the longest lasting solution for restoring your oral health. Dental implants are well designed for durability and are the closest resemblance to your natural teeth. There are three main components which make up a dental implant: the implant, abutment, and crown. The titanium dental implant screw is placed into the vacant root, and the abutment is inserted into the implant to support the replacement crown. The advantage of using medical-grade titanium is that it will not corrode, and its properties allow it to integrate or permanently fuse to the surrounding bone. Dr. Harris and Dr. Park are highly experienced oral surgery specialists and are more than qualified to perform dental implant placement. Most people remark at how natural dental implants look and are incredibly happy with the final result! Make an appointment with Utah Surgical Arts to receive an oral exam and discuss your options for dental implant placement.
The All-On-Four procedure is a ground-breaking technique which allows patients to restore an entire upper or lower arch of teeth through dental implants. Unlike other tooth replacement options like removable dentures, which can be uncomfortable or unnatural looking, the All-On-Four procedure allows patients to receive a fixed denture which is anchored firmly in the mouth. This denture attaches to dental implants which integrate directly into the jawbone, offering patients long-term stability, functionality, and a quicker recovery time. In fact, patients undergoing this treatment will receive a temporary set of teeth at the time that the dental implants are placed! At Utah Surgical Arts, our patients experience numerous benefits from choosing the All-On-Four method of treatment for dental restoration. At our offices in Provo, Utah, and Payson, Utah, our doctors are available to assess if you are a candidate and answer any questions you may have about the All-On-Four procedure and dental implants. Please call our office at (801) 356-2226.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Wisdom teeth, or third molars, typically erupt in the back of your mouth between the ages of 17-25. While most people have wisdom teeth, their presence can go unnoticed. In most cases, there is not enough space in the mouth to accommodate these additional teeth. Wisdom teeth that don’t grow fully into your mouth are called impacted teeth. Impacted wisdom teeth may disrupt the alignment of the rest of your teeth and become a source of oral disease. Preemptive wisdom teeth removal will usually alleviate the possibility of future problems. Drs. Harris and Park are happy to perform a thorough examination of your mouth and assess your needs. Our primary goal is to ensure that each patient’s concerns are adequately addressed and each patient receives the highest quality of care before, during, and after the wisdom teeth removal procedure. The doctors at Utah Surgical Arts have undergone years of extensive oral surgery training in order to perform the wisdom tooth extraction and are highly qualified to provide you with specialty care. Utah Surgical Arts is available to schedule your wisdom teeth extraction procedure at either of their office locations in Provo, Utah, or Payson, Utah.
