Dental Implants in Eagle, CO
When you’ve had one, several or all your teeth removed due to disease or decay or have lost them in an accident, replacing those teeth is necessary to chew properly, speak clearly and prevent future oral health issues. There are a number of options for replacing your teeth, and dental implants can make those new teeth fit just like your natural teeth — secure and comfortable.
What’s so special about dental implants?
Dental implants provide a permanent base for replacement teeth, just like the roots of your natural teeth. Implants have been around for over 40 years. They’re made of pure titanium, the same material used in knee and hip replacements, due to its compatibility with the human body. The titanium fuses with jaw bone cells to become part of the bone. The success rate for dental implants is over 90%, depending on the area of the jaw bone.
How dental implants are placed
The gums and jaw bone that will support your dental implants must be healthy enough to withstand the procedure. Some patients will require a bone graft before receiving their implants. The next step is to place the titanium rods into your jaw bone. These “abutments” act as new roots to support your replacement teeth. Your jaw and gums need to heal and the abutments fuse to the existing bone, normally a few months, before attaching the replacement teeth.
Advantages of dental implants in Eagle, CO
Besides disguising tooth loss and allowing you to eat and speak normally, dental implants offer these benefits:
- Increased bite strength
- Dentures attached to dental implants appear more natural and are a closer match to the shade and shape of your existing teeth
- No need to buy special cleaning products
- Permanent implants help prevent other teeth from shifting into the spot left open by missing teeth
Careful and consistent daily oral hygiene and regular visits to Castle Peak Dental are critical to the long-term success of dental implants.
