Rocky Mountain Periodontal Specialists Replace Missing Teeth

Dental Implants and Implant-Retained Dentures for Colorado Springs

Rocky Mountain Periodontal Specialists can replace missing teeth and make your smile whole again with dental implants and implant-retained dentures. Tooth loss occurs for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Gum disease
  • Trauma
  • Wear and tear
  • Infection
  • Failed root canals
  • Decay
  • Genetic defects

Our Colorado Springs patients have several tooth-replacement options for filling in those smile gaps. You general dentist may suggest dentures, partials, crown and bridges, or dental implants.

At Rocky Mountain Periodontal Specialists, our doctors can place and restore single or multiple-tooth implants or place posts for implant-retained dentures. Dental implants are an excellent option for replacing missing teeth because they are the closest to mimicking real tooth roots.

Benefits of dental implants include:

  • Posts are made from biocompatible materials, such as titanium, which means the jawbone will fuse around them.
  • Dental implants prevent bone loss, which often occurs after tooth loss. Without tooth roots to nourish, the jawbone will weaken and be reabsorbed into the body.
  • Dental implants have durability and strength. They last a very long time and function as well as your real teeth.
  • Your smile looks beautiful and natural.
  • Dental implants have a more than 96% success rate. They’ve been used as tooth replacements for more than sixty years.

Implant-retained dentures, either partials or a full set of upper and lower arches, are an excellent compromise of form and function. Implant-retained dentures don’t require adhesives, won’t slip, and have true stability. The implanted posts keep your jawbone strong and your facial structure intact. The dentures are attached to the posts, completing your beautiful new smile.

We serve patients in Colorado Springs and all surrounding communities. If you need dental implants or other periodontal services, request your appointment at Rocky Mountain Periodontal Specialists.
