Why Lakewood, CO area patients may consider dental implant treatments
At South Lakewood Dental, we believe in providing our patients not only with cosmetic treatments but restorative services to ensure their smile functions at its best. When patients have lost natural teeth due to trauma, disease, or other conditions, they may lose efficiency and function of their smile. Restoring the smile after tooth loss is necessary not only for aesthetics, but also to maintain functionality. Dr. Scott Stewart and the team of South Lakewood Dental are excited to offer patients dental implant treatments to do just that!
Dental implants are becoming increasingly popular because they are safe, predictable, and long-lasting. Dental implants are often made of titanium (traditional implants) or zirconium (non-metal implants). There are two sizes, conventional implants, and mini dental implants. All require surgical implantation and they are approved for use within the smile as a healthy, effective alternative to bridges and dentures.
Dental implants are often considered when patients have sufficient bone structure for placement. A healthy jawbone is required for the placement of dental implants because this is how the implant derives its strength and stability. Without healthy bone, patients may be better suited for bridges or dentures, which rely on the existing teeth for placement instead of the jawbone. Dr. Scott Stewart can determine if patients are appropriate candidates by running a series of x-rays to check the bone underneath.
Dental implants can provide patients with a life-long restoration. Implants are often restored over the top with full dental crowns, which are fabricated to match the shape, size, and color of the existing teeth for seamless integration into the smile. Dr. Scott Stewart uses the highest quality materials to ensure not only a beautiful result but one that functions at its best.
