The healthier your teeth are, the more likely you are to be healthier as a whole. Missing a tooth may not seem like a big deal if you aren’t in pain, but it can negatively affect things like your food choices, speech, the way you bite, and whether you develop other health issues in the near future. Not addressing a missing tooth right away could cause your other teeth and jaw to wear down more quickly than they normally would have.
One of the best solutions for a missing tooth in the Centennial, Aurora and Denver Metro area (and frankly, everywhere) is dental implants. Implants look and feel just like your natural teeth and can help keep your bone structure and overall health intact. A beautiful smile can also build your self-confidence, so don’t let a missing tooth bring you down.
If you’re located in the Centennial, Aurora and Denver Metro areas and don’t know much about dental implants, don’t worry, you’ve got Dr. Bryce Williams on your side.
What Are Dental Implants and How Do They Work?
Dental implants have the same main components as a natural tooth, built with both a root and a crown. The difference is an implant is constructed with strong and durable titanium material. Dr. Williams will first use an implant to replace the root. After a few weeks, the bone should be healed and grown around the implant, which is a critical step in successful dental implant procedures. In some cases, it may be possible to place a temporary tooth on the implant so you don’t have to walk around with a missing tooth all the time. After the bone has completely bonded with the titanium implant, a support post is placed on it, and a replacement tooth, known as the crown, is attached to the top of the support post. Once your dental implants are in place, you can use them and take care of them as you would your normal teeth.
Why People Choose Dental Implants Over Other Tooth Restorations
Centennial, Aurora and Denver Metro patients have many different types of tooth restoration procedures to consider. You may have heard of a fixed bridge, flipper, a metal partial, or dentures. While these are all common and viable options depending on your specific situation, none of them really compare to the effectiveness of dental implants.
Dental implants are easily the most permanent and comfortable solution for missing teeth. The strong foundation from implants not only keeps your jaw strong and healthy, but also supports individual replacement teeth. No surrounding teeth are damaged and the implants can look and feel just like a natural and healthy tooth. And the best part is, once an implant is installed, it can last for the rest of your life if taken care of properly.
Minimized Surgical Procedures
Surgical advances over the years have given Dr. Williams the ability to reduce the amount of surgical procedures needed to place dental implants, including single stage implants. Of course, the healing time when installing implants still remains necessary, since it takes time for the bone to connect to and strengthen the implant. One of the most important things to remember is to visit Dr. Williams at his office in the Centennial, Aurora and Denver Metro area as soon as possible after losing your tooth. The longer you wait, the more potential damage you could cause, which could lead to a more complex procedure.
