Dental implants are lasting, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth or complete arches of teeth. The dental implant post, which is a screw made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. It replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. A period of healing is then often required to allow the bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible post.
Following this healing period, our prosthodontists will place the dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post. Each dental implant restoration is custom-made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.
The prosthodontists at Denver Restorative Dentistry, Dr. Goggins, Dr. Aguirre and Dr. Pitz, are specialists in the replacement of missing or damaged teeth. They have years of experience restoring implants and making sure your dental implants are finished with natural-looking teeth.
Replacing a missing tooth can restore your smile to optimal health, function and appearance. A dental implant is a great option for restoring your smile because the implant is designed to look, function and feel just like your natural teeth, and with proper care, it can last a lifetime.
