Dental Implants Provide a Lasting Solution for Missing Teeth
Tooth loss comes in variety of ways, and when it happens – you need a solution that can restore the full functionality and aesthetics of your smile. Whether you are missing a single tooth or an entire arch, at Metropolitan Dental Care, our dentists provide dental implants designed to support custom-made restorations, such as a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture. Implant-supported restorations provide improved oral health and a lasting alternative to traditional bridges and dentures. We offer two convenient locations for patient living in the Denver, CO and Lone Tree, CO area who are searching for an ideal tooth replacement option.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are typically made from titanium and are similar in appearance to small screws. They are surgically inserted into the jawbone and intended to fuse with nearby tissues over a four to six month period and will become an integral part of your jaw. Dental implants are made to support a restoration and function much like natural tooth roots. Because of this, each time you bite down or chew, your jawbone remains stimulated by the dental implant. Unlike traditional dental bridges, nearby teeth remain intact and bone degeneration is not a concern. Implant-supported restorations are the only tooth replacement option available that replaces the entire tooth from root to crown.
