The Implant Retained Dentures Colorado Springs Patients Prefer

November 3, 2015

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.

If you are missing one or more teeth, it’s likely that you often hide your smile from others. This can lead to embarrassment in social situations and may even impact your professional life. Fortunately, Dr. Erick T. Anderson and Dr. Richard L. Anderson can provide patients in and around Colorado Springs, CO with a restorative solution in the form of dental implants.

Are Dental Implants Right For Me?

At your consultation at Anderson Family Dental, we’ll assess the health of your gums and the density of the bone in your jaw. If we find that you’re a good candidate for dental implants, our team will walk you through the steps of the entire process in a way that is straightforward and easy to understand. To replace your missing tooth, your doctor will implant a small post made of titanium into the gum and jaw bone where your natural tooth once stood. This post will serve as your new tooth’s secure root. A porcelain crown that has been customized to match your existing teeth will then be affixed to the implanted post. The result is a completely natural-looking new tooth that completes your smile and restores your bite.
