Implant Dentistry in Colorado Springs, CO
The benefits of Implant Dentistry
Dental implants are small titanium studs that serve as roots of the replacements for your missing natural teeth. These implants are surgically implanted into the jaw bone, where they act as an anchor for replacement teeth. Since dental implants replace the teeth in their entirety, they are considered one of the best replacements for missing natural teeth.

Why Choose Dental Implants Over Dentures?
Dental implants are the modern solution for replacing missing teeth. Traditional dentures only replace the visible portion of the tooth, but are simply held in place by suction, making them slightly unstable. On the other hand, dental implants replace the tooth root as well. This means your replacement tooth will be both functional and aesthetic. More importantly, implants are firmly secured to the jawbone, keeping them from slipping off.
How Is the Procedure Carried Out?
During the initial diagnosis, we will scan the teeth digitally and create an impression, which will be used to fabricate the implant and crown. We will administer local anesthesia and numb the gums, teeth, and jawbone. A small hole will be made in the jawbone, and the implant will be inserted into it. It will be held firmly in place using dental adhesives.

What Happens After the Implants Are Placed?
The implants need to bond to the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, which can take three to six months. In some cases, implants may be restored immediately after they are placed. The surgeon will advise you on follow-up care and timing. Once the bone firmly fuses to the implant, it will be stable enough for us to place a crown on it to replace the missing tooth.
