If you are missing one, several, or all of your teeth, dental implants can be an excellent alternative to traditional bridges or dentures. Dental implants can improve the functionality and appearance of your smile.
Dr. Jon C. Bauman will carefully assess your situation to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants in Brighton, Colorado. Sometimes, a bone graft may be necessary in order for your jawbone to support implants. Once it is determined that you qualify for dental implants, our seasoned dentist will surgically place a strong titanium screw into your jaw to replace the missing tooth root. Once the jaw has fused to the screw and the area is healed, a restoration will be attached to the screw to complete the process. This restoration may be a crown, bridge, full denture, or partial denture, depending on your individual needs.
There are many benefits to choosing dental implants to restore your smile. Because implants are permanent, they look, feel, and perform like your real teeth. Implants will improve your speech and chewing ability and allow for more natural jaw movements. Dental implants are also convenient because they can be cleaned with normal brushing and flossing and do not require any special treatment. Implants can also keep remaining teeth from shifting into the gaps.
