Cortez, CO (PRWEB) March 22, 2016
New patients in need of dental implants near Cortez, CO, are now welcome to schedule a consultation for tooth replacement options with Dr. Mason Miner at his office in Durango. Dr. Miner is experienced in placing dental implants, and provides this option as an alternative to other common treatments for lost teeth, including dentures. Implants are highly durable and can last a lifetime with good care and proper placement. Dr. Miner also reports that, “Tooth loss is associated with shorter life expectancies, premature aging, Alzheimer’s and many other conditions.”
If tooth replacement treatments are not received for missing teeth, the adjacent teeth will often shift and fill in the gap. In some cases, this can lead to bite, or occlusion, problems as well as discomfort and loss of normal dental functionality, cavities and appearing pre-maturely older. Dental implants are a good solution for many people who have lost one or more teeth, because they take the place of both the roots and the visible portions of the missing teeth. Each implant is made of a strong titanium post that, when placed into the bone, stimulates bone growth and avoids bone density loss.
Depending on factors such as the patients’ jawbone density, oral health, and medical history, implants may not be a recommended treatment option. Each patient considering dental implants will first undergo a thorough examination by Dr. Miner to see if they are a good candidate for the procedure and to learn all of their tooth replacement options.
Patients from Cortez, CO in need of tooth replacement procedures are encouraged to visit Dr. Miner’s practice and learn if they are good candidates for dental implants. Consultations and treatment appointments may be scheduled by calling the office during normal business hours at (970) 306-0535, or by visiting his website at http://www.masonminerdds.com.
