Centennial CO Dentist, Dr. Landon Blatter Offers World Class Titanium Root Replacements
Centennial, Colorado January 30, 2020. The American Dental Association estimates that over five million people lose teeth each year due to sports injuries. Tooth loss numbers increase with car accidents, on-the-job injuries, and tooth decay.
Losing a tooth can be devastating. Many people stop smiling as they once did because they are embarrassed about their missing teeth. Bridges and dentures were once the best solutions for replacing teeth lost to decay, accidents, or injuries. However, modern technology offers a superior solution for tooth loss: Root replacements.
About Dental Implants
A dental implant consists of two parts: a titanium post that is inserted into the gums and a porcelain crown, which is attached to the root replacement post. The surrounding bone osseointegrates to the root replacement post, creating a strong bond. The custom-designed crown looks and functions just like a natural tooth and requires the same oral hygiene. Our patients report that their dental implants are almost indistinguishable from their natural teeth.
Partial versus Full Implants
We offer partial and full implants. Partial implants are best for replacing a few teeth lost due to decay or injury. Full implants may be used in place of full dentures where several titanium root replacements attach to a set of crowns. Typically, four posts on the bottom and four on the top are all that is necessary for full dental implants.
Patients who require a full set of dentures love that they don’t need to remove dental implants for cleaning or when eating certain foods. Our patients tell us that implants make them feel confident and secure with their smiles.
Preparing for Dental Implants
Ideal dental implant candidates have healthy gums that are free from disease. Our dentist will perform a thorough examination to ensure that your mouth is ready for implants. A 3D scan is taken of your teeth will allow for a new crown to be customized to fit seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.
What to Expect on Surgery Day
Implant procedures at performed at our Centennial office. On surgery day, our dentist ensures that you are completely comfortable. You will be placed under anesthesia to keep you pain-free and relaxed throughout the procedure. Healing after surgery typically takes three months. After healing, the dentist will examine your surgery site and the crowns will be placed on the posts to give you a beautiful, permanent smile.
Caring for Your Dental Implants
Titanium root replacement requires proper care that includes regular flossing, brushing, and dental check-ups. Properly cared for, dental implants may last for more than 25 years.
