What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are an effective, permanent solution for missing teeth. The titanium post of your dental implant mimics a healthy tooth root and can support a number of restorations. The implant post fuses naturally with your gums and jawbone to create a stable, durable platform for your prosthetic teeth. Using dental implants, our team can secure a crown, bridge, or denture. When you choose to undergo this treatment, you benefit from improved long-term health and a rejuvenated appearance.
Our Thorough Implant Process
We start by carefully evaluating your teeth, gums, and the structure of your jawbone. To be an ideal candidate for dental implants in Englewood, you must have substantial jawbone density, be free from gum disease, and in good health. Our initial examination includes panoramic x-rays to help us detect any problems invisible to the naked eye. After determining that this treatment is appropriate for your needs, we take impressions to determine the size and placement of your implants.
We'll help you set up an appointment with a trusted oral surgeon or periodontist to carry out the implant placement. By referring you to an expert in surgical procedures, we help the process go as smoothly and comfortably as possible. Your implant is carefully placed in a minimally invasive surgical procedure. We'll check in with you following the operation to ensure your recovery goes as expected.
Once your implant is placed, you’ll need some time to recover and heal fully. We want to make sure your implant post is allowed to fuse with your jawbone before securing your custom restoration. After your recovery period ends, our team secures your denture, bridge, or crown and ensures that it fits comfortably.
What if I Need an Extraction, Bone Graft, or Sinus Lift?
If you suffer from low jawbone density, a bone graft or sinus lift may help you qualify for dental implants. Bone grafts increase the volume of your jawbone, making it strong enough to stabilize an implant for a considerable length of time. Sinus lifts are a unique form of bone graft that enhances your upper jaw. During a sinus lift, a specialist adds a small amount of bone between your upper jaw and sinuses.
If a tooth is severely decayed, fractured, or broken beyond repair, an extraction may be necessary to preserve your dental health. If you need a sinus lift, extraction, or bone graft, we'll recommend a trusted specialist to carry out the appropriate procedure.
High-Quality Restorations to Rejuvenate Your Smile
Whether you need one tooth replaced or several, we have an implant-supported restoration at our Englewood practice to restore your smile. We provide:
Implant Crowns: Implant crowns are used to replace a single tooth. Your new crown matches the appearance, color, and functionality of a healthy tooth as closely as possible. The crown attaches to the implant post, which keeps the prosthetic secure and ensures a proper fit.
Implant-Supported Bridges: A bridge smoothly fills gaps left in your smile by two or more missing teeth. A bridge consists of prosthetic teeth suspended between a pair of crowns. Your implants anchor the restorations, and the bridge prevents your healthy teeth from shifting out of alignment over time.
Implant-Supported Dentures: We offer permanent dentures to replace up to an entire arch of missing teeth. Your dentures are firmly secured to prevent them from slipping while you talk, drink, or eat.
All-on-4®: An All-on-4 implant treatment allows our team to replace an entire arch of teeth using only four implants. A specialist carefully positions your implants to stabilize your prosthetics and create the foundation for a long-lasting, natural-looking smile.
