Regardless of age, tooth loss is a condition that affects millions of Americans each year, including residents of Denver. Even with exceptional oral hygiene, there are many reasons why tooth loss can occur. It is important to treat tooth loss as soon as possible to prevent further damage to the overall health and structure of your mouth and to prevent further tooth loss. Instead of walking around and hiding your smile in shame, there are options available that will allow you to smile again.
Dental implants are a very cost-effective and long-term solution for anyone who is looking to replace a missing tooth. Instead of having to remember to remove and care for dentures, which can be uncomfortable to wear, dental implants allow you to enjoy the same freedoms that you enjoy with your natural teeth.
You can benefit from dental implants because they:
- Are a durable and long-lasting replacement option for missing teeth
- Provide a boost in self-confidence and appearance
- Help maintain natural face and jaw structure and shape
- Prevent bone loss
- Remain free of cativities
- Do not shift or move
- Protect the remaining natural teeth
Dental implants are a long-term solution for tooth loss, and the process does take several months to complete. The procedure occurs in three phases, with phase one, the placement of the implants, taking the most time. After the implants have been placed it takes a few months for your gums to heal properly before we can proceed to phase two, which is the placement of the posts (abutments) for your teeth implants. Phase three occurs a few weeks after phase two and involves the placement of your new teeth. In some cases, if there is a need for gum and bone grafts, the dental implant process can take longer.
