Dental Implants Can Change Your Life What Makes Implants Special

While other solutions for missing teeth may look like natural teeth, they lack one feature that safeguards your future oral health: tooth roots. When you replace a missing tooth using a dental implant, you completely restore the tooth from the root to the crown.

Why are tooth roots so important?   

Maintain Your Jaw

An implant acts like a tooth root, which has an important role in encouraging new bone growth. Without stimulation from the root, your jaw can weaken and recede, which can lead to a new round of dental problems. 

Strong & Secure

Because dental implants fuse with your jawbone, they provide an incredibly secure foundation for your restoration, whether it is a single tooth or a full denture

Better Function

Dental implants not only restore your smile but they also let you talk and eat confidently, a benefit especially treasured by our patients who have tired of dentures that continually slip and slide around in their mouth.

I have been coming to Colorado Dental Arts for the past 10 years, and could not be happier.  I have a real phobia regarding dentistry, and they have treated me with great respect and without judgment.  I cannot say enough about how great the staff is, and Dr. Krendl is just awesome.

Take a Look at How Implants Work ... 

For a single-tooth implant, a titanium post is inserted into the jaw. After the post has fused with the bone, the abutment is attached so that the dental crown can be secured to the implant. 

What Is a Dental Implant? 

Dental implants are the most dependable and stable way to restore your smile as well as your bite. The implant itself is a small post made from titanium, a biocompatible material. This titanium rod serves as a replacement for your tooth's root. During surgery, the screw-like post is inserted through the gums and into the jawbone. In a few months, it will fuse with the bone to offer decades, or even a lifetime, of secure support for your restoration.   

Modern dental implants have been used successfully since the 1970s and are continuously being improved. Dr. Krendl is committed to staying in step with the latest innovations in dentistry so that he can offer his patients in Littleton the most up-to-date and proven innovations in dental implants.

The Treatment Timeline for  Dental Implants What to Expect

Your treatment plan will vary depending on whether you are replacing a single tooth or an entire arch, but in general, the procedure follows these steps. 

 
Dr. Krendl uses the latest dental technology to ensure precise implant placement and optimal results.

Consultation

Dr. Krendl will perform an exam and evaluate your health to determine if you are a good candidate. If implants are appropriate, he will design a treatment plan and go over any questions you may have. Imaging scans will be used to determine the optimum placement of the dental implants needed for your procedure.

Preparatory Procedures

Some patients will need treatments before the dental implants are placed to ensure a strong foundation. This can include tooth extractions, bone grafts, sinus lifts, or treatment for gum disease.

First Surgery

The dentist will administer local anesthesia to numb the treatment area. IV sedation is also available if needed. Once you are comfortable, a small incision will be made in the gum and the titanium implant will be inserted. 

Healing Period

During the next four to six months, the dental implants will be left undisturbed so they can securely fuse with the jawbone. This step is called osseointegration. You might be provided with a temporary restoration during this time.

Abutment Placement

Once the implants are securely fused with the jawbone, an abutment will be attached. The abutment is a piece added to the implant that allows the restoration to be attached.  

Second Healing

During this short period of a few weeks, the gums will heal around the abutment. 

Restoration Attachment

Your restoration will be tested for fit and comfort. After any necessary adjustments, it will be attached and you can greet the world with a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
