Why are dental implants so popular?
It’s no wonder that dental implants have quickly become the tooth replacement of choice by both dentists and patients. Implants resolve the aesthetic problem of a missing tooth, but more than that, they are completely functional and act and look just like a natural tooth.
The secret to the success of dental implants is the small titanium post that is surgically placed in your jaw. The titanium used for implants is the same medical grade material that has been used successfully for years as replacement joints.
Titanium is biocompatible – the body accepts this man-made material, allowing the titanium post to fully integrate with the jawbone and tissue. Once healing is complete, the implant actually becomes part of the structure of your jaw.
This provides a measure of stability that is simply not found with other tooth replacement options. When the implant has fully integrated, Dr. Litvak completes the process by creating a dental crown that is affixed to the implant. The result is strong and durable, and functions and looks like a natural tooth.
While dental implants are a truly remarkable solution for missing teeth, they may not be the right option for you. Please contact our Denver dental office, and we will be happy to arrange a consultation so that we can answer your questions and make recommendations that fit your specific needs.
