Dental Implants in Lakewood, CO
At Steve Baumgart DDS in Lakewood, Colorado, we offer a wide range of dental implant procedures. Implant dentistry is an advanced, permanent, comfortable and attractive restoration option. Dental implants are used for restoring full oral aesthetics and functioning after tooth loss because of periodontal disease, extraction, injury or decay. Missing teeth can make it difficult to eat and speak and can diminish the beauty of a smile.
Dental implants offer permanent or long term anchoring of dentures, dental bridges or crowns while preventing bone loss in jaws. They look very natural and feel comfortable. Our Lakewood, CO practice is a one-stop destination for all dental implant options. Patients can have dental implants along with tooth restoration procedures completed right in our office.
Benefits of Dental Implants
When compared to other options, dental implants offer a number of benefits such as:
Permanence- After dental implants have been put in place and healed, dentures, bridge or a crown can be secured permanently to the implant.
Aesthetics- Dental implants look identical to natural teeth.
Comfort- Teeth feel very comfortable and natural because replacement teeth are anchored permanently with dental implants to the jaw.
Flexibility- They can be used for replacing any number of teeth in any part of the mouth.
Tooth Alignment- Teeth are prevented from shifting to maintain alignment.
Bone Strength- The bone supporting missing teeth can weaken and begin atrophying over time. This process, when left unchecked, can lead to unstable jawbone and tooth loss. Dental implants can strengthen your bone structure and stimulate growth of new bones.
Dental Implant Procedures
Typically, two visits are required for dental implant procedure. On the first visit, the titanium implant will be secured by the surgeon to the jawbone after administering a local anesthetic.
The healing period typically lasts 4 to 6 months. During this time the dental implant will osseointegrate naturally with the bone material to form a stable anchor point. After complete healing, a second visit will be required. During this visit, a long term denture, bridge or crown will be attached to the implant for a fully functional, attractive and durable restoration. An impression will be made before this visit for custom fabricating the restoration.
