Fountain, CO - 80817

Implant Dentistry in Fountain, CO 80817

If you have missing teeth, then you know that it can cause problems in your dental health. You may find it difficult to chew and speak properly. Also, missing teeth can make you feel conscious and embarrassed.

Dental implants in Fountain, CO 80817 are prosthetic tooth roots that provide a permanent restoration for missing teeth. Each dental implant post is surgically inserted into the jawbone, where it slowly fuses with the surrounding bone tissue. This fusion creates a sturdy foundation for an abutment and dental crown that are designed to mimic the function and appearance of your natural teeth.
In some cases, our dentist in Fountain, CO 80817, and his team may recommend mini dental implants for patients who want a temporary solution for their tooth loss. Mini implants are small, thin posts that also fuse with the bone beneath the gums to provide a secure anchoring point for a removable denture or bridge.

Unlike dentures that can be removable, dental implants are permanent restorations. In many cases, they can even be placed immediately after tooth extraction, while other treatments like bridges and partials require a few weeks of healing before they can restore a full smile after tooth loss. To learn more about the benefits of implant dentistry in Fountain, CO 80817, keep reading!

Benefits of Implant Dentistry in Fountain, CO 80817

Root canals are performed when a tooth is infected and cannot be saved by restorative options such as fillings or dental crowns.

We might recommend a root canal if you have an infection in the root of your tooth. This infection is typically caused by deep decay or a chip or crack in your tooth. The infection affects the nerves and tissues in the root of the tooth, causing inflammation, pain, and swelling.

Implant-supported Dentures in Fountain, CO 80817

Our dentist in Fountain, CO 80817, may recommend implant-supported dentures if you have worn down or missing teeth and want to be able to chew and speak properly again. These dentures are held in place by dental implants secured by screws into your jawbone, a process called “osseointegration.”

An implant-supported denture is a type of overdenture that is secured to the jaw with implants rather than by bonding the appliance to your gums like traditional partial dentures. The implants are placed surgically into the jawbone and fuse with the bone, creating a strong foundation for your teeth to rest on. Over a few months, as your gums heal further, the dentures will settle into a perfect fit. If needed, you can return to your dentist for follow-up appointments during this time to make sure your healing is progressing appropriately and making sure you are happy with the way your new implant-supported dentures look and feel. When everything heals, your custom-made dentures are secured to the posts of the implants. This process helps you regain the ability to eat and speak normally, as well as improve your appearance.

While traditional dentures rest directly on your gums and are not permanently fixed in place, an implant-supported denture is held securely in place by the implants in your jawbone. This makes them more comfortable and easier to care for than standard dentures. Another benefit of implant-supported dentures in Fountain, CO 80817, is that they don’t cover the roof of your mouth. Many patients find that this makes it easier to taste and enjoy the food they eat.

If you are a candidate for an implant-supported denture, our dentist in Fountain, CO 80817, can help you decide if this is the best option for you or if you may benefit from an alternative treatment.

Barbara Andros
I have used North End Dental for 12 years and they take great care of an ongoing auto immune issue in my mouth. Thanks to everyone there for helping me stay healthy!
Shanna Miller
It all started with Chrissy, she made me feel that there could be hope for a better life. No she didn’t promise me anything, she only listened and made me feel cared about instead of a dollar sign. When I got to the office, they took me in for my x-rays two hours before my actual time. The staff was amazing, they made me fill welcome and every was explained to me the way I could understand. It was the best dentist experience I have ever had!! Shanna Miller

I have been going to North End Dental for about three years now, and my experience with them has exceeded all expectations. Professional and friendly are words to describe everyone from the front office, to the dental personnel, to the dentists. A shout out to Abby who is so skilled, thorough, and caring in her work as a hygentist, and also to Dr. Moore whose expertise, experience, and precision in his work are so much appreciated! North End Dental is top notch!
Arlene Romero
First of all, I would like to share my experience with North and dental. I was welcome from the minute. I walked in that door and every time from then on I really appreciate all the staff and the doctors that worked on me were amazing. I will recommend this place 100% thank you all and if you want to get such beautiful work like I did go to North End dental.
Cody Schmid
I recently had all 4 wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Hill. It’s difficult not to be nervous about such a procedure but having people who are so experienced really helps. The shots were as painless as they could be, the extraction process took maybe 20 minutes for all 4, and the price was half what I was expecting. Great place to go, happy I picked them and very pleased with how everything turned out.
