What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are tooth replacement solutions that replace the roots of missing teeth and hold dental restorations securely in place. Implants consist of titanium posts that are surgically placed into your jaw and fuse with the jawbone to form a solid base for an artificial tooth or restoration. The artificial tooth attaches to the implant through an abutment.
Dental implants are the most versatile tooth replacement options as they can support various restorations, including crowns, bridges, and dentures. Whether you need to replace a single tooth or an entire arch of teeth, our team can restore your oral health and function with beautiful results.
Who Qualifies for Dental Implants?
You can qualify for dental implants if you are over eighteen years and in good oral and general health. However, you need to have healthy gums and a strong jawbone to ensure successful treatment. Fortunately, even if your jawbone is lacking in density and strength, our dentist may help you qualify through various pre-treatments.
Depending on your unique circumstances, we may recommend structural procedures such as bone grafting or sinus lift to help prepare your jaw for treatment. Our dentist will carefully evaluate your smile and recommend the preliminary treatments necessary for successful dental implant treatment. We can perform bone grafts and sinus lifts directly in our office, so you'll never have to travel to get the care you need.
What Is a Bone Graft?
If your jawbone isn't solid enough or is too soft, our dentist may suggest bone grafting before you can qualify for dental implant surgery. This is because your mouth's powerful chewing action exerts great pressure on your jaw bone, and if it can't securely support the implant, the implant surgery may fail. Bone grafting can create a more solid foundation for the implant and improve your chances of success.
It may take several months for your transplanted bone to grow and support a dental implant. In some instances, you may need only a minor bone graft that can be done at the same time as your implant surgery. The dentist will explain your unique situation and propose the solution that will be most effective and beneficial for your oral health.
What is a Sinus Lift?
A sinus lift or sinus augmentation is a similar procedure to bone grafting. It's meant to make it easier to install dental implant roots in the upper jaw, where the mouth neighbors the sinuses. If you need dental implants to support an upper molar replacement, but have insufficient space to support the implants, we may recommend a sinus lift.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants provide numerous advantages. They replace every part of your lost tooth, providing significant improvements to your oral health and quality of life. Dental implant treatments will:
- Improve your biting and chewing functions
- Keep your surrounding natural teeth from shifting
- Preserve your natural facial features
- Stop bone weakening or recession
- Eliminate speech difficulties from tooth loss
- Renew your appearance and self-confidence
- Promote proper digestion
Our Implant-Supported Restorations in Denver
We offer a variety of implant-supported restorations to meet the diverse needs of our patients. Our on-staff denturist puts his expertise into designing quality, customized restorations that fit like a natural part of your smile. We can provide the following dental implant options in Windsor:
Crowns: Dental crowns are ideal if you want to replace a single missing tooth. We match our dental crowns to the color of your natural teeth to preserve the appeal of your smile.
Bridges: Implant-supported bridges rely on dental implants for support instead of resting on adjacent teeth. We offer implant-supported bridges to replace up to three missing teeth in a row.
Dentures: Dentures are used if you're missing several or an entire arch of teeth on either of your jaws. We recommend partial dentures when you still have a few teeth remaining and complete dentures when replacing all teeth in your upper or lower jaw.
Regardless of how many teeth you are missing, we work with you to establish the best solution for your circumstances. Our team will take you through the various options before recommending the most effective implant-supported restoration to fit your smile and bite.
While most full dentures require a minimum of six implants to support them, if you qualify for All-on-4 dental implants, we can support an entire dental arch with just four implant posts. These restorations provide a strong, solid base for your prosthetic dental arch, giving you a long-lasting and comfortable smile. Our dentists will examine your smile carefully and answer your questions to determine if All-on-4 is the right option for your smile.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation to Promote Your Comfort
Your comfort is always our priority at Little River Dental. We offer nitrous oxide conscious sedation to allow our dentist to perform treatment without causing you severe discomfort or pain. For most people, nitrous oxide sedation tends to be the ideal option when combined with local anesthesia. It helps you feel more relaxed and at ease through the dental implant procedure.
