Dental Implants in Denver, CO
If you are missing one or more teeth and want a permanent tooth replacement option, dental implants are a great choice. Dental implants are titanium posts that are implanted into the jawbone, and a natural-looking artificial tooth is placed on top. Once the healing process is complete, patients are able to eat, smile, and speak with confidence and ease once again!

What are the benefits of dental implants?
There are many benefits that come with choosing dental implants. Implants are always customized to look like the surrounding teeth and blend in seamlessly with the rest of the patient’s smile. Dental implants also:
- Look, Feel, and Function Like Natural Teeth
- Don’t Require Special Maintenance or Care
- Are Extremely Stable and Reliable
- Help Maintain Face Shape and Jawbone Health
- Don’t Come With Food Restrictions
Who is eligible for dental implants?
Patients who want to replace missing teeth using dental implants should be in general good health and have a healthy jawbone. If there is not enough tissue in the jawbone for an implant to be placed properly, we can perform bone graft surgery in our office to restore the jawbone first. Patients who have autoimmune disorders are not always good candidates simply because they tend to have a slower healing process. Patients who smoke should also refrain from smoking while they are recovering, as smoking can cause complications.
Should I get a dental bridge or a dental implant?
If you aren’t sure which choice is right for you, our team would be more than happy to help. While both dental implants and dental bridges are excellent restorative options, bridges are less invasive and less costly than dental implants, which is preferable for some patients. Dental implants, on the other hand, are incredibly stable and durable, and it is not uncommon for patients who receive dental implants to never have to modify or replace them. Should your implant ever need to be restored, however, our office can assist with that as well.
