    Golden, CO general and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Sam Kawakami is helping adult patients who have experienced permanent tooth loss find renewed hope in having an attractive, sturdy smile once again with permanent dental implants. With dental implants, patients can enjoy all of the benefits that a natural tooth offers and have the peace of mind knowing that their new smile will last a lifetime. As some of the latest and most advanced technology in restorative dentistry, dental implants offer patients a myriad of benefits that other restorative procedures like bridges and dentures can’t match. Dental implants provide function that is on par or better than that of natural teeth, and also look and feel just like natural teeth.

    “Dental implants are a fantastic option for adult patients who might just have one missing tooth as a result of injury or decay, but are also the best option for denture patients who are looking for a more permanent option,” said Dr. Kawakami. “Implants truly are the next best thing to having natural teeth, and in many instances, are even more useful and more attractive than patients’ natural teeth.”

    The dental implant itself is a small titanium screw that acts as the anchor for an artificial crown that is eventually attached to it. The implant acts as the natural tooth root, and is surgically inserted into the jawbone. The implant is given several months or weeks to heal, depending on the state of the patient’s jawbone, after which the artificial crown is attached to it.

    The artificial crown that is attached to the implant is carefully and custom designed by Dr. Kawakami using input from the patient. The crown is molded to be the specific shape that will blend in with the rest of the patient’s smile, and the patient can specify the particular shade of tooth as well—from Hollywood white to natural ivory.

    When dental implants are healed and completed, patients can use them just as they would natural teeth. Unlike with removable dentures, patients are free to eat any food they want without the fear of damaging or breaking their new teeth. Additionally, they can brush and floss their new implants just as they would natural teeth. When cared for properly, permanent dental implants can last the lifetime of the patient.

    In addition to offering dental implants, Dr. Kawakami provides a variety of other general dental and orthodontic treatments in Golden, CO. He and his colleagues at Denver West Dental Group are proud to offer the latest dental technology to ensure that their patients always receive the highest level of care. Dr. Kawakami is a trained sedation dentist and offers a variety of sedation services to help patients have the most relaxing dental visit possible.

    Dr. Kawakami is a graduate of the University of Iowa School of Dentistry and has been a practicing professional for more than 30 years.
