Dental Implants in Hampden CO
For individuals with missing teeth, dental implants are the strongest, most natural-looking replacement option for a natural look and feel.
The Process of Getting a Dental Implant
At the initial visit to our Hampden dental clinic, the dentist will conduct a thorough oral exam and determine whether a patient needs a dental implant. If they do, and if they are a good candidate for a dental implant, the dentist will recommend and explain a personalized treatment plan, including pain-relief options during and after the implant procedure.
Implants consist of a titanium post inserted into the jaw bone at the location of the missing tooth. After a period of healing, the post is covered with a custom-made dental crown. Because the implant is anchored in the jaw, it looks, feels, and functions just like a natural tooth.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
- Improved appearance
Eliminating the gap from a missing tooth, dental implants feel and look like the surrounding natural teeth. They become a permanent fixture in the mouth as they fuse with the jaw bone during the healing period.
- Improved speech
Missing teeth and even some dentures can compromise speech causing slurring of words or mumbling. Dental implants allow patients to speak comfortably without worries of unsightly gaps or slipping dentures.
- Easy eating
Just as they negatively impact one’s ability to speak clearly, gaps from missing teeth and poor-quality dentures can prevent an individual from enjoying certain foods. With dental implants, there is no worry of gaps or slipping dentures. All the foods a person enjoys being back on the table to eat comfortably.
- Improved oral health
Dental implants prevent jaw bone loss that is associated with missing teeth and also provide structural support to the surrounding teeth, thus improving overall oral health. Because dental implants are like natural teeth, normal brushing and flossing is not compromised.
Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Most patients are good candidates for dental implants. Healthy gums and strong bones are necessary to support the implant. Our dentists can provide a thorough assessment to determine if a patient is ready to receive a dental implant based on their overall health and their current oral health.
