Don’t Be Embarrassed by Your Teeth
Did you know that there are over 100 million adults in America suffering from broken or missing teeth? If you fall into this group, you have nothing to be embarrassed about and you don’t have to put up with a smile you don’t love. For many, dental implants are the perfect solution to missing teeth.
Implants are small posts secured into your jaw bone that support a crown, bridge, or denture. Over time, the bone grows around the implant and it becomes a permanent structure in your teeth. Dental implants last your entire life as long they’re properly cared for. However they don’t require special treatment — just brush, floss, and visit the dentist as usual.
Why Should I Consider Dental Implants?
Although they may seem intimidating, implants are the best natural solution to fill in missing teeth. Because the bone grows around them, it’s very difficult to even tell they are there. Dental implants can also help you with the following:
- Allow you to chew, eat, talk and smile with ease
- Prevent the need for partial dentures
- Reduce bone loss and gum recession
- Secure a dental bridge
- Support dentures for a sturdier fit
- Prevent face caving
- Offer a lifelong solution
If you do choose to go with implants, there are several types available. Our dentists can review your options with you. We also partner with implant specialists at Mile High Dental & Implant Centers, so we may refer you to one of their offices.
In some cases, like with a decaying tooth, your dentist may recommend a tooth extraction.
