Are you missing a tooth? Has your condition compromised how you eat, how you speak, or how you feel about yourself?
For patients suffering from tooth loss, dental implants are a long-lasting solution that can also maintain the health of your jaw.
Why do we recommend implants to patients at University Park Family Dental in Denver, CO?
3 Reasons Why Dentists Recommend Implants
Protect Your Oral Health
Dental implants are the only dentistry treatment that can stop bone recession (a natural aftereffect of tooth loss). They can protect your jaw tissue, keeping your features looking healthy and full.
Improve Your Quality of Life
Losing a tooth can affect every aspect of your life, limiting what you eat, altering how you speak, and lowering your self-confidence. After surgery, patients of our Colorado office report great improvements in their day-to-day life.
Enjoy Peace of Mind
If your dentures cause embarrassment or discomfort each time they shift out of place, implant-supported dentures may be the right solution. Rather than being held in place by messy adhesive and natural suction, these dentures are held firmly in place by your implants.

Understanding the Procedure
Dental implants are small, yet incredibly durable titanium screws that are implanted into the jawbone to mimic a natural tooth root and provide support for a natural-looking restoration. If you've been dealing with messy adhesives, ill-fitting dentures, or missing teeth, University Park Family Dental has the solution. When you visit Dr. Lopez for your initial consultation, he will spend quality time with you discussing the treatment plan that will best suit your needs. The dental implant procedure done at University Park Family Dental is highly customized to ensure the quality and durability of your results. Our friendly staff will see to it that you feel comfortable in our office and prepared for your treatment. Dr. Lopez will answer each of your questions, address any concerns you may have, and send you home well-informed and ready for a new smile.
When you return to our Denver office to have your dental implants placed, we can provide you with oral conscious or nitrous oxide sedation to accompany your anesthesia and optimize your comfort. Once you've settled in, Dr. Lopez will begin placing the implants. The time it takes to complete this step is dependent on the number of teeth that need replacing and the type of implant and placement technique chosen for you. These details will have been previously determined in your care plan. At the end of this appointment, your implants will be covered with temporary restorations to maintain the aesthetics of your smile.
Once your jawbone has had time to properly heal, we will invite you back into our office to replace your temporary restorations with more permanent ones.
Dr. Lopez prides himself on his advanced training in implant dentistry and the restoration of implants. When it comes to completing your smile with implant-supported crowns, bridges, or dentures, Dr. Lopez has the fine-tuned skill and attention to detail that are necessary to the successful restoration of your smile.
Improving Form and Function
By replacing missing or severely damaged teeth with dental implants, you are taking the opportunity to improve your smile in a number of ways. The dental implants we use at our office in Denver will strengthen your smile by providing support to your jawbone, your remaining teeth, and even the structure of your face. Our implants will also improve the function of your mouth, making it easier for you to chew, eat, and speak normally and comfortably. Finally, you can expect dental implants to enhance your appearance by filling in the gaps left by missing teeth, erasing broken, chipped, discolored, and decaying teeth, and providing you with a straight and bright-white grin.
