Dental implants restore the beauty–and function–of your smile! Everyone enjoys being welcomed by a toothy smile. If missing, or broken teeth are causing you to stay close-lipped, it’s time to do something about it. Dental implants can restore the aesthetics of your smile and the functionality you need for proper eating and speaking. Missing teeth invite gum problems that can put your overall health at risk as well. Dental implants can restore your missing tooth/teeth with a replacement that is stronger than what you had before and that blends in with neighboring teeth. Our team at Family and Cosmetic Dentistry of the Rockies can help you enhance your smile while improving your oral health and function.
Missing teeth are the most common reason patients turn to dental implants, not just for cosmetic reasons. Missing teeth can greatly impact your overall oral health and lifestyle. Missing teeth can force you to alter the foods you eat and the way you eat. They can also impact how you speak and the strength of your jawbone. Without a tooth root to secure, your jaw bone shrinks and weakens creating a sag in your cheek and lip structures. While dentures used to be the solution for missing teeth, cosmetic dentistry technology today offers a better way; a stronger, more natural-like, permanent way.
Dentures come with their own restricted foods list. Your jawbone will also continue to deteriorate even with dentures. Not so with dental implants! Dental implants provide you with a solution to your missing teeth that look and function just like your natural teeth. With proper care and attention, they can even rival your natural teeth!
While dental surgery can sound scary and severe, the procedure is actually simple and short in duration. Recovery time post surgery is minimal. Some patients need only one or a few days! So, what is a dental implant? A dental implant is made with a titanium post, which is inserted into your jawbone on one end. At the other end is the abutment, which secures the prosthetic tooth to your mouth. Once a dental implant is in place, you have a strong, secure result you can count on.
