3 Reasons Why We Might Recommend Dental Implants to You

Are you tired of seeing the gap in your smile when you look in the mirror each morning? We understand. If you are searching for a way to replace your missing tooth, you might consider dental implants in our Castle Rock, CO dental office. Our patients rave about their results and appreciate the convenience they offer.

#1 You Want a Permanent Solution to Tooth Loss

If you want a toot-replacement solution that is most like having your natural tooth again, we will often recommend dental implants because of their versatility and the longevity they provide. Dental implants increase your quality of life by making you feel more confident in your appearance, speaking properly, and the simplicity of caring for them.

Dental implant posts fuse with the natural bone. Barring periodontal disease, you can expect that your dental implant post will stay put for the rest of your life. Even if your crown needs replacing, your dental implant will stay put.

#2 You Don’t Want to Limit Your Diet

If you love to try new foods and don’t want the worry of living life with a restricted diet, the only thing you need to remember about eating with a dental implant is that your dental implant crown requires the same caution as your natural teeth.

  • Don’t chew ice.
  • Never use your teeth as tools.
  • If you break your crown, call us.

Other than that, you can eat crunchy apples and carrots or steak, if that’s your favorite.

#3 You Want to Avoid Altering Healthy Teeth

Dental bridges require us to alter two healthy adjacent teeth to make space for crowns. Dental implants eliminate the need for us to treat perfectly good teeth. Dental implants use the underlying bone, rather than the adjacent teeth, as an anchor and stand-alone – just like your natural teeth.
