Dental Implants in Colorado Springs, CO
When you lose a tooth to decay or an injury, seeking care is very important. Having one or more missing teeth can have a negative impact on your oral health in both the short and the long term. One or more missing teeth can also impair your self-confidence. Thankfully, you don’t have to live with missing teeth. At Springs Dental Care, we offer one of the most versatile restorative services currently available—dental implants. With dental implants, Dr. Cea and Dr. Webb can help you replace what you’ve lost so you can enjoy good oral health and well-being again.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are designed to replace both a patient's missing tooth and his or her missing tooth root. That's what sets it apart from more traditional restorative services. A basic fixed bridge, partial denture, or full denture will help you achieve a complete smile, but they won’t replace the roots underneath.
Replacing your roots is just as important as replacing your missing teeth. Your roots have two very important jobs. First, they anchor your teeth to your jaw, creating a stable foundation. Second, they promote bone growth so that your jawbone stays healthy throughout the years. When you have one or more missing roots, your jaw will weaken over time because there’s nothing there to stimulate new bone growth. Replacing your missing roots with one or more titanium implant posts will help you strengthen your jaw while giving your new smile a stronger foundation.
Dental Implant Procedure
There are two stages to implant care. In the first, one or more implant posts are surgically placed in the jaw and then given about four to six months to bond with it. In the next phase, your custom-made restoration will be attached. Dental implants can be used with crowns, bridges, partial dentures or full dentures.
