Have you lost one or more of your teeth? It’s a lot different than when you lost your baby teeth way back in the day. Unfortunately, adult teeth won’t grow back (and a gap-toothed smile doesn’t look as adorable as it did when you were a kid.) But don’t despair! If you’ve lost one or more teeth, dental implants from The Fort Collins Dentist can restore your smile.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed in your jaw. It is made of titanium, a lightweight metal that is ideally suited to implant dentistry (titanium is used in joint replacements, too).
One of the remarkable things about titanium is its ability to fuse with bone. Once this happens, we’ve got a rock-solid base on which to restore your missing tooth.
Dental implants can support a single artificial tooth, as well as bridgework and even full dentures. It’s no wonder that they have been hailed as one of the great advances in the history of modern dentistry.
A missing tooth can cause you all sorts of problems: it makes it difficult to speak clearly, and to eat. It can also be embarrassing to have that gap in your smile. But dental implants from The Fort Collins Dentist not only restore your smile; they look and function like natural teeth. People from North Larmie, Cheyenne, Greeley, and South Berthoud also come to us for complete general and family dentistry services. Schedule an appointment with us today!
