For years, restoring damaged teeth with crowns has taken at least two dental office visits, and several weeks wearing a temporary while a lab milled the permanent crown. Thanks to CEREC same-day crowns, patients don’t have to wait weeks to restore their smiles, and the in-office milling unit may even allow our team to produce better results.

Tooth loss affects more people in the US than you might think. Nearly 4% of US adults aged 20 to 49 are missing at least one tooth, and 10% of adults 50 to 64 are fully edentulous (no natural teeth). Most replacement options for any number of teeth only replace the part visible above the gum line, the crown, but dental implants replace the entire tooth from the roots up. A recent survey revealed that 90% of edentulous patients in the US chose traditional, removable dentures, but those patients are missing out on the opportunity to combat bone density loss, one of the most detrimental effects of tooth loss. Some patients have previously believed they were not candidates for implant-retained dentures, but innovations in implant technology make it possible for more patients than ever to safely and successfully receive implant-retained dental prosthetics.

I saw something interesting recently, about averages in America. The average American may weigh a little more each year, but the rate of missing teeth seems to be going down a little bit — and that’s good news. Still, the average American adult has three or more decayed or missing teeth. That’s too many. The gaps caused by missing teeth affect more than our self-confidence — they can also make it difficult to say certain words, and even to bite into our favorite foods. I, for one, love biting into a fresh apple, and I want to make sure all of my patients can enjoy the same simple pleasure. That’s why at Anderson Family Dental we urge dental implants in Colorado Springs — for a better smile, today and tomorrow. Keep reading to learn more.

Every year the research connecting poor oral health to decreased overall health grows. This isn’t likely to surprise the British research team who asked people what assumptions they made about people they met who had damaged or cosmetically flawed teeth. The results showed that people with unsightly smiles were considered to be sick, incapable of caring for themselves, of drug addicted. It seems logical for dental researchers to be testing a similar hypothesis: that poor oral health and overall health are connected. At Anderson Family Dental, the dentist Colorado Springs residents prefer, our team is proud to offer patients more than just dental care to prevent damage or restore oral health. We provide patients with education to fully understand their oral health care needs, and become true partners with our practice in making treatment decisions. If you’re interested in finding out more about our dental services, patient education, or the mouth-body connection, call our Colorado Springs dental practice to schedule a consultation today.
