Our team at Oakwood Dental is deeply concerned for the health and well-being of our patients, our staff and their families. On March 20th, Governor Polis signed and executive order to extend the temporary suspension for elective and non-essential procedures. This includes all voluntary or elective surgeries or procedures, whether medical, dental or veterinary. The new executive order has extended our temporary closure through April 14th.

We will be available to our patients in need of emergency dental care as needed throughout this temporary closure.

What’s the difference between a bridge and an implant?

dental bridge | Dentist Castle Rock COA bridge has been the traditional way to replace teeth. A bridge is designed with a replacement tooth that connects to crowns on the adjacent teeth. The new replacement tooth "bridges" the gap where the previous missing tooth existed.  Having a bridge can introduce potential problems if it is not cleaned properly and the anchor teeth can become more susceptible to decay and gum disease. A dental implant is the closest way to replicate the previously missing tooth.  Instead of connecting to the adjacent teeth, an implant replicates the previous tooth with a titanium post that is placed in the jawbone and a porcelain crown is designed to fit on the implant post. Normal home care for a dental implant is the same as it is for the rest of the natural teeth and no additional cleaning steps are required. Since a dental implant itself is not susceptible to decay or traditional gum disease, the future prognosis of adjacent teeth remains unchanged.
