If you need to replace missing teeth, dental implants are the healthiest solution because they mimic the form, function, and appearance of real teeth. There are other tooth replacements available like dental crowns and dentures, and they work great for many people.
We recommend dental implants for our Parker, CO patients because they go a step beyond these other solutions by replacing the missing tooth root with a titanium implant post. The benefit of an artificial tooth root is that it helps keep your jawbone strong and healthy. Jawbone loss always follows tooth loss and leads to problems like gum recession, loose teeth, and even additional tooth loss.
Dr. Schmidt places the titanium implant post surgically in your jawbone, and as it heals over several months, it fuses with the bone and tissue around it. After healing, the implant acts just as the lost tooth root did, stimulating the regeneration of bone, and keeping your jawbone strong, healthy, and intact.
Tooth loss can happen to anyone, and adult patients of all ages appreciate the benefits that dental implants offer. Dr. Schmidt takes pride in creating beautiful custom restorations like crowns and bridges to top off your dental implant and restore your smile.
