Dental Implants in DenverWhen you get dental implants in Denver at our dental office, you can rest easy knowing that you are truly making the right decision. There is no reason to let missing teeth alter your lifestyle. The unfortunate fact is that many people do not know that they can take advantage of dental technology to get artificial teeth that look, feel, and even act exactly like natural teeth.

People are still struggling with antiquated technology, messing around with chemical adhesives, and worry about forgetting their dentures on the nightstand when they leave for the day. Regardless of how long ago you lost your adult tooth or teeth, dental implants can help you to get back the active and carefree lifestyle you want.

Our dental implants in Denver, which we install at our dental office, serve multiple purposes. First, the dental implants work to give you back a fully-functional smile that has serious implications on your lifestyle. Second, is that these implants actually work to restore your jawbone by acting like a natural tooth.

Dental implants are consist of titanium and have the ability to fuse with the organic tissue through a process known as osseointegration. After placing the implant onto the jawbone, it sends a signal that the body now needs to support this new tooth. The implant helps the jawbone to regain some of its importance and often this can lead to the bone regenerating.

The primary function of your jawbone is to provide stability for the teeth. The teeth provide the bone itself with stimulation every time you bite or chew. When you start to lose teeth, the stimulus that the teeth once provided is lost. With the missing tooth, a signal is sent to the body that the jawbone no longer has a critical mission. In response to this, the body will start to leach some of the important minerals like calcium away from the jaw bone and reallocate it to other areas; this process is known as resorption. A dental implant will actually stop, and in some cases reverse resorption.

When the body starts to resorb the jawbone, the bone itself starts to deteriorate. The deterioration causes it to fail its secondary function, which is to support the structural integrity of the face and bite. You may notice that the chin can shrivel up and the lips pull inwards with age. This is as a result of the jawbone deteriorating which leads to the collapse of the posterior bite or the entire facial structure. Dental implants in Denver is a way to prevent this from happening and ensures that you won’t develop a witches chin.
