Dental implant restorations replace a missing tooth root. The implant consists of a titanium post surgically placed into your jawbone. A crown, bridge, or set of dentures attaches to the implants to complete your smile.
Although getting implants requires a few visits, they are a sturdy, natural-looking alternative to conventional dentures that can last a lifetime.
Implant restorations are one of the best ways to replace missing teeth. They require minimal adjustment, allowing you to speak and chew naturally soon after placement.
Some of the aspects of dental implant restorations that patients enjoy include:
Dental implants don’t require the messy adhesives associated with conventional dentures. The implants are solidly placed, so there’s no slipping when you eat or speak.
Implant restorations also stimulate your jawbone like a natural tooth root. As a result, your jawbone holds its integrity so you don’t experience sagging of the muscles of your lower face.
Restorations replace one or more teeth, preventing further shifting of your natural teeth.
If you have one or more missing teeth, you may be a candidate for an implant restoration. Your provider evaluates your oral health to determine if you have the jawbone integrity to hold the implant. It’s also essential to be free of infection and gum disease.
If you need any treatments, like bone grafts or periodontal care, before receiving dental implants, the providers at Smile with Care Dental of Colorado can arrange them for you.
A person must also have a mature jawbone, so children and teens aren’t eligible for implants.
Receiving a dental implant requires a few visits. At the first visit, your provider surgically places the titanium post in your jawbone. They use a local anesthetic so you don’t feel anything during the visit. You go home to heal and give the post time to fuse to your jawbone.
Several weeks or a few months later, you return to the office to have crowns, bridges, or implant-retained dentures. You’ll leave Smile with Care Dental of Colorado with a complete smile.
