What are Dental Implants

Dr. Roopi Kattaura at Ardas Family Dental in Parker, Colorado, is proud to offer dental implants to patients who have missing teeth. Because of their durability, dental implants remain a popular choice as well as the best tooth-replacement option on the market. The titanium implant post is surgically inserted into your bone socket, so it is more stable than a bridge or a denture. If you take care of your dental implants just like normal teeth, they will not need to be replaced. If you are missing one or several teeth, Dr. Kattaura will help you regain a smile you can feel happy and confident about!

To begin the implant process, Dr. Kattaura will first make an incision in your gum tissue. This will allow access to the bone socket where the titanium implant post is inserted. The implant post will need several months to heal before a permanent crown can be placed, so a temporary crown will be placed at this time. After the healing period is finished, an abutment is placed on the implant post to serve as the base of your new tooth. Then, your custom crown will be permanently cemented into place.

In order to keep your dental implants healthy for a lifetime, you must practice good oral hygiene at home. This includes brushing two to three times per day and daily flossing. Routine visits to your Parker, CO, dentist for cleanings and examinations will also help to make sure the implant stays in good shape.
