Did you know that sharks lose an average of one tooth per week? But never fear: in a shark’s lifetime, it will literally grow thousands of new teeth, constantly replacing old ones. A shark can have hundreds of teeth (the famous great white shark has up to 300), arranged in several rows.
We poor human folk only get two sets of teeth – our baby teeth, or primary teeth; and our permanent teeth. Permanent teeth begin to replace primary teeth around age 6, and the last of the permanent teeth are the wisdom teeth, which tend to erupt in late adolescence to early adulthood.
What does that mean for you when you lose a permanent tooth due to accident, injury, or decay? Do you have to live with an open gap in your smile?
We’re lucky to live in Colorado during a time when dental procedures to replace missing teeth are better than ever before. In Denver and Cherry Creek, you can see us to discuss getting a dental implant.
Dental implants have advanced dramatically over the years. This highly successful procedure is done regularly in the Denver area, and it has over a 95% success rate. Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth, and they feel, look, and perform just like natural teeth. They are strong and easy to maintain. You can even use dental implants to anchor a bridge or a denture. And we specialize in both placing and restoring dental implants.
With a dental implant, no one in Denver will even know you lost a tooth – and you might forget, yourself!
Call 720-398-0956 to schedule a consultation with us to discuss whether getting a dental implant or implant-anchored dentures is right for you.
