Restore Your Smile With Dental Implants
Your smile is one of the first things someone will notice about you — and one of the things they’ll remember. So, who wouldn’t want their smile to be perfect? Dental implants are a great way to achieve the perfect, restored smile you’ve been dreaming of. Here’s how:
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements that are anchored into the jawbone. They can be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or an entire dental arch. Surgery will be necessary to prepare your mouth for the placement of a dental implant. We provide implants for:
- Replacing All Teeth: If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace them.
- Replacing Multiple Teeth: If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them
- Replacing a Single Tooth: If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it.
The type of dental implant that is best for a patient depends on the condition of their jawbone and the amount of bone available to support the implant.
How Dental Implants Can Help Your Smile
There are many benefits of dental implants! Many patients choose implants over dentures because dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, they are secure and stable, and they require minimal maintenance. They also improve oral health by preventing bone loss in the jawbone. Dental implants can last for many years with proper care.
Still wondering if implants are right for you? Dental implants offer the following benefits:
- Look more natural than other dental procedures.
- Are more permanent than other dental procedures.
- Are less likely to cause bone loss than other dental procedures.
- Help improve your oral health.
- Help improve your overall health.
- Are a secure, sturdy foundation for dental restoration.
- Increase chewing strength.
- Improve appearance and facial aesthetics.
- Preserve natural tooth structure.
Who is an Ideal Candidate?
The most common reason a patient may choose dental implants is to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are also used to secure dentures or dental bridges in place, correct bite problems, and improve the appearance of the smile.
Not everyone in Colorado Springs is a good candidate for a dental implant; for a successful implant to take hold, you must have proper bone density and a strong immune system. In all cases, dental implants require strict oral hygiene and good overall health. Patients who smoke or chew tobacco are not good candidates for dental implants because they are more likely to experience complications.
Dental Implant Aftercare
After treatment, Dr. Hill will work closely with you to develop the best care plan for your healing. Periodic follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your dental implant, teeth, and gums to make sure they are healthy.
Aftercare is important to ensure that your dental implant is healthy and functioning properly. Caring for your smile is a simple process, and with proper care, your dental implant will last for many years. Make sure to brush your teeth as usual, and visit your dentist for regular checkups. It is also highly recommended that you floss and use a small interdental brush in order to clean hard-to-reach areas on and around your implants.
You also may want to stay away from foods that are hard to chew or bite down on, as they can potentially damage your dental implants. Our team will help outline all of these things for you before and after your procedure.
