Dental implants can change your life for the better. Maybe you’ve spent years being embarrassed by the gap in your smile, caused by a missing tooth. A dental implant is like getting your natural tooth back. At the New Image Dental Implant Center in Denver, we have performed countless dental implants.
Strictly speaking, a dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically implanted in a patient’s jaw. A piece called an abutment is attached to the post, and a crown – the part that looks like a tooth – is attached to that.
To be a candidate for a dental implant, you need to have healthy gums and enough bone to support the titanium post. Even if you don’t, you may still be able to get a dental implant after a bone graft to build up your jaw.
A dental implant is not a simple procedure. It can take up to six months to complete the entire process, and even longer if it is preceded by a bone graft.
Fortunately, most people don’t have any problems with dental implants. Like most dental procedures, they are painless; the worst part of it is thinking about it beforehand.
That’s where a consultation with us at the New Image Dental Implant Center in Denver is valuable. When you are fully informed, and know what lies before you, there is little to worry about. We can perform single implants, multiple implants, and full arch implants.
