Dental Implants in Grand Junction, Colorado
Dental implants are becoming more popular as an alternative to dentures and bridges. Unlike dentures, dental implants look, feel and function just like real teeth because the implant is surgically embedded into your jawbone. The titanium screw serves as a solid foundation for dental crowns or complete dentures. For the most natural look, each custom crown we make is matched to the size, shape and color of your original tooth.
Why Choose Dental Implants
Dental implants are long-term solutions to missing teeth. As long as you practice proper oral hygiene and visit your Grand Junction dentist regularly, the dental implants can last a lifetime. Other benefits that you can look forward to:
- Better chewing ability and nutrition. Unlike dentures that restrict your diet, dental implants let you eat whatever you want.
- Improved comfort. Your gums can finally rest because the crown or denture is supported by the implants.
- Improved speech. Smile, laugh and speak with confidence without worrying that your teeth will come off.
- Better overall health. Unlike dentures, dental implants stimulate the bone and prevent bone loss.
- Natural-looking teeth. Dental implants are the closest things to the real deal.
- No more adhesives. No need to use messy adhesives that don’t work.
The Dental Implant Procedure
The procedure depends on the type of implant used, how many teeth you’re replacing and your general health. Full-sized implant placement requires the patient to be in good overall health and have good jawbone volume and quality. If the bone is too thin at the implant site, bone grafting is necessary to strengthen the area and allow the titanium screw to fuse with bone. Mini dental implants can be placed even if the patient has extensive bone loss. Some of the small-diameter implants are placed at an angle to provide maximum support for the crown or denture.
Are You or Someone You Know Missing Teeth?
Dental Implants Are a Great Way to Replace Missing Teeth
Dental implants are a terrific long-term solution for restoring the function and appearance of natural teeth. Dental implants combine an artificial tooth root, made of titanium, with an engineered dental crown.
Dental implants look like your natural teeth. The dental crown is custom-made to resemble your other teeth. Your dentist, Dr. Eric Benefield, will match the crown to the original size, shape, color, and fit of your original tooth.
With the solid foundation of a dental implant, you will be able to eat the foods you enjoy without discomfort or pain. Your bone easily fuses with the titanium implant creating a strong anchor for your new teeth. This returns all the biting and chewing power you had previously.
Dental implants help you maintain overall better oral health. It’s not necessary to remove or modify the surrounding healthy teeth around the gap of the missing tooth. The dental implant helps maintain bone in the affected area of your mouth. Without your natural tooth or dental implant, the bone slowly deteriorates leaving a indentation between your remaining teeth.
