Are you ready to replace your missing teeth? Your Parker, CO, dentist, Dr. Robert DiGiorgio, can help you fill the gaps in your smile with dental implants.
Implants offer a complete restoration option
Dental implants allow you to replace both the crown, or top, of your tooth and the root. Tiny posts implanted in your jawbone during minor oral surgery serve as your new roots. Made of titanium, these implants are biocompatible and capable of bonding to the jawbone.
The bonding process, which generally takes several months, ensures that your new root becomes firmly attached to your jawbone. Depending on the location of the tooth to be replaced, you may receive your new crown immediately or might need to wait until bonding occurs. If you'll need to wait, your dentist can create a temporary bridge that you'll wear in the meantime.
Dental crowns are attached to the tops of implants with small screws. Thanks to the impression of your mouth taken during a visit to our Parker dental office, your new crown will fit perfectly in your mouth.
If you'll be replacing multiple missing teeth with an implant-supported bridge or denture you won't need one implant for every crown. In fact, as few as four dental implants can support a denture.
Implants help you improve your smile and protect your oral health
Thanks to your new dental implants, you'll never again feel self-conscious due to your missing teeth. Your new teeth will look just your natural teeth and function like them too. You won't experience a significant decrease in your biting power and will be able to eat your favorite foods.
Without implants, your remaining teeth may begin to drift as they try to fill the gap in your smile. When teeth overlap, it's much harder to remove every speck of plaque from them, which can cause an increase in cavities. A change in the position of your teeth can also alter your biting, causing chewing difficulties or jaw pain. Dental implants help you avoid these issues by preventing nearby teeth from shifting.
