Dental implants help to create beautiful smiles! For decades, dental implants have provided a solution for missing teeth and an alternative to dentures. And with each additional passing year, implant techniques and materials have improved! Precision placement is now offered with the use of our 3D imaging for dental implants.
What exactly is a dental implant? Essentially, it’s a post that we can surgically place into your jawbone. Once the area has healed well, we can then place a crown, bridge, or partial denture onto the post(s), and it will then become a permanent fixture. Once they’re successfully placed, dental implants both look and function much like your natural teeth!
Dental Implants vs. Dentures (Full or Partial Dentures)
Many people who, in the past, would have had to resort to dentures at an early or advanced age can now consider dental implants instead. Dental implants function considerably better than dentures, and they can also be used to shore up partial or complete dentures for a more durable, secure alternative.
Dental Implants vs. Bridges
If you have a missing tooth or compromised tooth, you have the option of a dental implant or a bridge. In most cases, a dental implant is a better option, because it only affects a single tooth; whereas, to place a bridge, we have to put crowns on your two adjacent teeth to create the three-part bridge.
Dental Implants vs. Gaps In Your Smile
When you lose a tooth – whether it’s due to injury, illness, or decay – the worst thing you can do is leave a gaping hole. Leaving a hole for a long period of time can cause your surrounding teeth to “collapse,” which could permanently affect your bite.
Because the dental implant procedure can be quite complex, many people prefer to have sedation during their treatment. We’re one of the few offices in the Denver metro area to offer all three types of sedation dentistry:
•conscious sedation (also known as “oral sedation” or “sleep dentistry”)
•nitrous oxide (also known as “laughing gas”)
We usually find that dental insurance plans cover part of the cost of dental implant procedures, and our office accepts almost all types of dental insurance. We’re in-network providers for Delta Dental, Aetna, United Concordia, and Assurant. We also offer CareCredit financing and a senior discount policy.
Our dental office can be found in Lone Tree off of C-470 and Quebec, just east of Highlands Ranch. We’re close to the Denver Tech Center (DTC), as well as Centennial, Englewood, Littleton, and southeast Aurora.
