Dental Implant From Your Dentists in Littleton

If you’ve lost a tooth, at Rocky View Family Dental & Implant Center, we know that a dental implant may offer an ideal way to rejuvenate your smile and bolster your smiling confidence!

What is a dental implant?

A small titanium screw, dental implants are a great option for restoring one or more teeth when they have been lost due to decay or injury. By acting like natural tooth root, an implant provides an anchor that prevents bone loss, improves chewing function, and prevents shifting issues in surrounding teeth. Dental implants also help restore facial volume that can be lost following tooth extraction.

Why is it important to replace a missing tooth?

Not having all your teeth can affect how you look, speak, and chew. Even when just one tooth is missing, the gaps between nearby bones will cause teeth to shift out of place, which could result in misalignment issues as well as facial volume loss. A missing tooth can also negatively impact a patient’s speaking and chewing ability and can detrimentally affect their nutritional intake.

How long does the implantation process take?

Once we’ve confirmed your candidacy for a dental implant, we’ll schedule an appointment to have it placed. Following a series of months that will allow the implant to fuse to your jaw bone (usually 3 to 6 months), we’ll have you return to our office. During this appointment, we’ll attach a custom-fitted, natural-looking prosthetic crown to the implant, restoring your chewing, speaking, and smiling aesthetic.

How should I care for an implant?

Implants require the same diligent care as natural teeth. To keep yours looking and feeling great, ensure that you brush twice and floss once daily, and see us for regular hygiene appointments.
