The many benefits of our full-service, same-day implant dentistry
Dental implants are the next best thing to natural, healthy, unaltered teeth for modern tooth replacement. And Urgent Dental of Denver is proud to offer this standard-setting prosthetic to individuals across the metro area and greater north-central and north-eastern Colorado. At our office, we offer advanced surgical techniques such as dental implant placement. Other dental offices near us and far afield are not equipped to perform implant placements. They must refer this part of the process to specialists. Additionally, we have advanced diagnostics and treatment technologies to support the most precise and accurate treatment planning, implant placement, comfortable and safe experience, and optimal outcomes. In turn, our office can successfully handle each step in the implant process – and may even be able to restore your teeth the same day as the placement of your implants!
Basics about the best in tooth replacement
To better understand the process, you must first understand a little about this prosthetic option. Implants are distinguished favorably from other conventional forms of tooth replacement, such as removable dentures and bridges. These options do not mimic the design and structure of natural teeth. Instead, they rely on neighboring teeth or products like denture adhesive for their stability. Not so with implants. The implant itself is just one part of the prosthetic. It is designed to function as a tooth root. Made from a biocompatible material like titanium, the implant, when positioned in the jaw, later heals or fuses to the surrounding bone. Once the implant has joined the bone, it can provide a strong foundation for the prosthetic tooth (crown). Depending on your needs, a single implant may be attached to and restored with a crown, or a few strategically-placed implants may be connected to and used to hold a bridge or denture in place. In fact, as few as four implants may be placed in the jaw to stabilize an upper or lower denture.
We encourage prompt tooth replacement with implants. Tooth loss hastens the destructive process of bone loss in the jaw. Furthermore, implant-supported teeth keep the jawbone strong and healthy because this form of tooth replacement effectively transfers the energy from the prosthetic teeth (and behaviors like chewing food) to the implant embedded in the bony tissue of the jaw. Due to this all-important feature, implants sustain the long-term strength of the supporting bone necessary for the appearance of the face and youthful contours, as well as functions like clear speech and efficient chewing and digestion.
With good care, the implants designed, placed, and restored at Urgent Dental of Denver, CO, can last a lifetime. Call (720) 573-2629 with questions and to schedule your appointment with our team.
