Highlands Ranch Smiles : Dental Implants in Colorado
Have you been hiding your smile behind your hands because of missing teeth? Can’t eat your favorite foods because dentures or gaps between your teeth are making it so hard for you to chew? If unsightly or lost teeth are causing you embarrassment, discomfort, or pain, it’s time to visit your Highlands Ranch dentist Dr. Courtney McKeever for dental implants.
At our dental office, we will present several teeth replacement options. One of the options to consider is getting dental implants.
Dental implants are the ultimate solution to missing teeth. They are:
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small rods, usually made of titanium or other biocompatible material, that are surgically attached to the jawbone. The implant is allowed to integrate with the bone, replacing the tooth root and providing a stable foundation for replacement teeth. A dental crown, bridge or denture is then used to replace the visible portion of the teeth. Implants can replace a single tooth, several teeth, or all of your teeth.
Implant-supported teeth closely mimic natural teeth from root to crown. Because they are anchored by synthetic tooth roots, they allow you to eat and speak without pain or discomfort. No more worries about your dentures slipping out while eating or speaking! And you can smile with confidence again.
We offer several types of implants:
The procedure begins with a comprehensive examination of your mouth and jaw to find out if you have enough bone to support a conventional dental implant. If you don’t have enough bone, your dentist may recommend bone grafting or a different type of dental implant.
If you qualify for the procedure, the synthetic tooth root is surgically embedded into the bone. A healing period follows to allow the implants to fuse with your bone, and then the replacement teeth are attached to the implants.
Your Highlands Ranch dentists have extensive training and experience in implant dentistry, and our entire team will work closely with you to make sure that you get your dream smile. Our dental implants are designed to provide support to your cheeks and lips to avoid the “sunken face” look caused by missing teeth and to blend seamlessly with your teeth to give you a stunning, natural smile.
