The number of implants you receive will depend on how many teeth you need to replace. In some cases, you may only need to replace a single tooth. In other cases, you may need to replace an entire arch of teeth. When you visit Greenwood Village Dentistry our dentists will carefully evaluate your teeth and mouth and discuss your options with you before creating a treatment plan that meets your needs. To find out more about single-tooth implants and multiple-tooth implants in Greenwood Village, Colorado, and schedule your consultation with Dr. Charles Fischer and Dr. Lissa Alconcel, call us today at 303-740-9353.
If you only need to replace one tooth, our dentists may recommend a single-tooth dental implant. This consists of an individual implant post capped by a dental crown. Single-tooth implants have several advantages over other tooth replacement options. Unlike a dental bridge, an implant can replace your tooth without sacrificing the health and structure of any neighboring teeth. Implants also integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the supporting bone healthy so that your teeth and implant will remain stable and secure in your mouth. An implant will also look and feel more natural and will be easier to keep clean with regular brushing and flossing.
When replacing multiple teeth people often think of complete or partial dentures as the solution. However, implants can also be used to replace and support an entire arch of teeth, and are a healthier, more stable and longer-lasting alternative to traditional dentures. At our office, we offer All-On-4® and Teeth-in-a-Day implant-supported dentures as well as snap-on dentures, which can replace your entire dental arch using just a few strategically placed implants.
Why Choose Implants?
Implants are the ideal tooth replacement option because they look, feel and function like your original teeth. They are designed to last a lifetime when properly cared for with good oral hygiene and regular dental visits, and like your natural teeth will work to stimulate your supporting bone tissue to keep your mouth healthy. Implants are also a good option for almost everyone, and as long as your mouth is healthy you should be able to receive an implant without any difficulty. However, if you have periodontal disease, tooth decay or another condition our dentists will need to provide treatment for that problem prior to providing you with implant dentistry.
