When it comes to tooth loss, dentists can offer patients a variety of restorative options, including dentures, partials, or bridges. While these tools may meet the needs of some patients, others find themselves wishing for a more natural, long-lasting solution that can make their smile look and feel as good as it did before their dental problems.

A relatively new procedure in the world of restorative dentistry, dental implants can offer newfound stability, comfort, and beauty to the smiles of our patients in Aurora, CO and beyond!

What exactly are dental implants?

While other tooth replacement options rest on top of the gums and only restore the crown of the tooth, dental implants take your oral health a step further by replicating the entire structure, including the root. First, a trusted oral surgeon will place a titanium post into the empty socket. Then, once an appropriate amount of time has passed for the post to integrate with your jawbone, you’ll come in to see Drs. D’Amico and Mauck at our Aurora office, where we’ll attach a beautiful, custom-made crown to the implant, completing your brand-new look.

Dental implants have several benefits over more traditional restorative treatments, such as:

  • Bone deterioration often occurs in the jaw when teeth are lost. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement solution that integrates with the jawbone, sustaining and even regenerating tissue.
  • They offer a way to rebuild your smile without having to sacrifice the health of your remaining teeth.
  • They’re much more sturdy and comfortable, not to mention seamless!

How Can Dental Implants Help Me Improve My Smile?

September 21, 2012

Are you missing one or more teeth? Traditional restorative dentistry options like crowns, bridges, and dentures can help you fill in those gaps. What they can’t do, though, is replace your missing tooth’s underlying structure. For that you need a revolutionary service known as dental implants.

Unlike traditional options, dental implants are structured like a natural tooth with a replacement tooth on top and a replacement root—often made of titanium—underneath. With this combination of crown and root, patients of D’Amico & Mauck, DDS in Aurora can enjoy a smile that looks and feels completely natural.

If you’re interested in restoring your smile with dental implants, the first step is finding out if you’re a candidate. During a consultation appointment with Dr. Nicholas D’Amico or Dr. Matt Mauck, we can determine if dental implants are the right service for you. If they are, you can expect your procedure to proceed in two phases.

In the first phase, a trusted oral surgeon with place the titanium screws that make up your prosthetic roots. Because titanium is a biocompatible metal, the bone tissue in your jaw will fuse with these screws over time, creating a solid, natural foundation for your new smile.

As that happens, D’Amico & Mauck, DDS will design and create your custom-made restoration. Your titanium roots can support a wide variety of restorative options, from single crowns to bridges and partial or full dentures, making them one of the most versatile dental services available.

When your titanium root and your jaw have had time to bond, the second phase of your dental implant restoration will involve the attachment of your new tooth (or teeth) to your implant. With your new teeth in place, your procedure will be complete and you can return to your regular schedule with a fully restored.
