Here at Southbridge Dentistry
in Littleton, CO, we see all the time how a single dental implant can transform a patient’s mouth — and their life — by giving them a full-functioning smile again. As the most permanent solution for missing teeth, implant technology is one of the most innovative technologies in modern dentistry.
How does a dental implant work?
Whether you have one or more missing or severely damaged teeth, implants offer the best, most stable and longest-lasting solution. First a titanium post is placed in your jaw, and bone and gum tissue are allowed to grow around it. With the implant integrated firmly in place, an artificial tooth can be attached. The final result is a remarkably strong, natural-looking tooth.
A permanent, beautiful solution from your Littleton dentist.
Before dental implants, there were no fixed solutions available for people who lost their teeth. Today, we can replace an entire mouthful of missing teeth with implants for each tooth — for permanent, stable and natural-looking results — or with a bridge or partial denture anchored to implants.
Several teeth missing: fixed bridge on implants.
Traditional dentures can’t offer the same stability or function as a fixed bridge anchored to implants. The benefits of a fixed bridge implant include:
- The only fixed alternative in this situation
- A stable, secure solution that lets you eat what you want
- Preservation of your facial appearance and prevention of bone loss
Single tooth missing: all-ceramic crown on implant.
When both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is an implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown. This solution both looks and functions like a natural tooth. The benefits of an all-ceramic crown on an implant include:
- Excellent esthetic result
- Normally functioning teeth
- Lifelong stable solution
We create all of your implant restorations, the part that looks like a tooth. In fact, our dental implant restorations are so lifelike, no one will be able to tell they are not your own, natural teeth.
It’s never too late to restore your smile
