Affordable Dental Implants in Denver, CO
Dental implants are one of the best tooth replacement options available. They are made of titanium metal and placed below the gumline. During the months following the placement of implants, the bone marrow surrounding the implants grows and holds the implants in place. This lets the implants act as a replacement for the root structure of the missing tooth. After that, an artificial tooth is placed on the implant, connected by a small metal piece (also known as an abutment).
A person suffering from tooth loss will experience many challenges; the most obvious of these challenges are difficulties when chewing and speaking clearly. When tooth loss is left untreated it can result in very serious problems like tooth shifts, jawbone deterioration, facial structure loss and bite imbalances. These issues usually develop over time when there is no root system to maintain bone health and alignment. Dental implants provide an artificial root system to maintain order and keep the remaining teeth in line. They can not only help a patient overcome short-term challenges; they can also prevent long-term problems linked to tooth loss.
