Dental Implants Colorado Springs at SmileCOS Dentistry done by our dentist Colorado SpringsAre you looking for the most natural way to replace a missing tooth, or multiple missing teeth, that look just like your natural teeth? At SmileCOS Dentistry, our Colorado Springs dental implants are the most realistic replacement for missing teeth. While the dental implant procedure does require surgery and a few appointments, the final results provide a realistic-looking smile and the ability to eat your favorite foods!

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are more than a fake tooth. They start with a "root," which is a titanium screw.

Our Doctors perform this surgical procedure after ensuring that the patient is a healthy candidate. After we extract your teeth, we will surgically implant the titanium screws into your jaw bone. The titanium then fuses with your jaw bone over a period of a few months.

Once the titanium becomes a part of your jaw bone, we can securely place the fake tooth over the dental implant, giving you a realistic replacement for your missing teeth.

Single Tooth Implants

Believe it or not, about 120 million people in the United States are missing at least one tooth. Luckily, there have never been more effective and beautiful replacement options thanks to advances in restorative materials, techniques, and technology.

One of our most popular options at SmileCOS Dentistry, in Colorado Springs, involves the placement of a dental implant, which we then attach to a prosthetic tooth.

Multiple Teeth Implants

According to American College of Prosthodontists (ACP), roughly 36 million Americans are missing all of their teeth. This figure does not include the millions of people that are missing some of their teeth, but not all.

For this reason, our Colorado Springs dentists at SmileCOS Dentistry specialize in multiple teeth implants, which have revolutionized restorative dentistry.

Colorado Springs Dental Implant Process

The dental implant process takes place in several appointments at our Colorado Springs dental office. Our team will discuss sedation options before your procedure so we can keep you relaxed and comfortable.

First, if we have not done so already, we must extract the necessary teeth. Sometimes we can place the titanium screws during the same appointment; it depends on the health of your mouth and the situation. Placing the screws is a surgical procedure that requires anesthesia and plenty of recovery time.

During placement of the teeth implants, we cut the gumline and insert the screws. After closing the area up, we place temporary artificial teeth so that you have a functioning mouth while you wait for your jaw bone and soft tissues to heal.

After a few months, we can place the abutments on the dental implants. The abutments are what hold the artificial tooth in place.

Once your mouth completely heals, we will take impressions of your mouth and send the molds to our dental lab. The technicians will make your permanent artificial teeth based on the impressions and the chosen color/shape of your teeth.

At your final Colorado Springs dentist appointment, we will place the artificial teeth on the abutments, giving you a full mouth of great looking teeth. Just like any other artificial tooth replacement, you may require a few adjustments to get the perfect fit for your artificial teeth.

Our Colorado Springs dentists work closely with you to ensure your comfort and satisfaction with the look and feel of the teeth.

Who is a Good Candidate for Dental Implants in Colorado Springs?

Patients with healthy gum tissue and a strong jaw bone (no bone loss) are the best candidates for dental implants.

If you have lost a little bit of jaw bone, though, you may still be a good candidate; our dentists in Colorado Springs can assess the situation.

Dental implants help prevent further bone loss by stimulating the bone with the titanium screws.

If you have advanced-stage gum disease, cancer, diabetes, smoke, or drink excessively, you may have to look at other tooth replacement options, which our dentists can cover with you.

We want you to choose the tooth replacement option that will provide the best outcome for your oral health.

Dental Implants FAQs

How Long do Dental Implants Last?

Dental implants last a lifetime with regular brushing and flossing. The crown itself may last at least 10-15 years and may need a replacement over time, depending on the wear.

Are Dental Implants Painful?

Dental implants don't cause pain during surgery, due to the anesthetic provided. After the anesthetic wears off after surgery, there will be some manageable pain and discomfort, but over the counter pain relievers should help.

Are Dental Implants Safe?

Yes, dental implants are safe! The dental implant procedure has been used successfully for decades, with little to no risk of any major complications.
