Stop performing searches on Google, Yahoo, or MSN for Dental Implants Colorado Springs, CO until you've read this entire page. Why?

We work as a multidisciplinary dental services group to place and restore dental implants. In particular, Dr. Brently Grimard and Dr. Mike Huber are licensed periodontists whom have gone to extensive graduate schooling and participated in specialist residency programs to hone the art of placing dental implants and performing bone grafting. Working alongside Dr. Grimard and Dr. Huber are our General and Cosmetic Dentists – Colleen Jenson DDS, Douglas Peak DDS, Scott Frederick DDS, and Kasja Novembre DDS. Our general and cosmetic dentists place the aesthetic crowns or dentures on top of the implants. Together, we are able to provide our patients better surgical and cosmetic outcomes compared to just one of us completing the entire case on our own.

Let our dental services group help you restore your natural smile and gain self confidence with dental implants. They are oftentimes a superior alternative to bridges because dental implants can replace teeth without compromising the quality of bordering teeth. Because dental Implants are placed directly into jawbone, they look and feel like real teeth. Furthermore, dental implants can prevent bone loss and gum recession at the same time. Stop letting missing teeth affect how you chew, smile or live your life. Bring back that ear-to-ear grin with an effective, permanent dental implant.

Dental Implants in Colorado

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a small, sturdy, titanium post that acts as the root structure would for a natural tooth. A dental implant is placed into your upper or lower jaw bone. After the bone has grown around the implant, implants can hold a crown, bridge or over-denture just like roots hold natural teeth in place. Implants are very durable and can last a lifetime. They require the same maintenance as natural teeth; this includes brushing, flossing and regular dental check-ups. 

 

Are Dental Implants right for Me?

Colorado Impant DentistsDental implants are a secure, long-term smile solution. They are ideal for people of all ages who have lost teeth due to injury, periodontal disease or other causes. A Dental implant can even replace a full set of missing teeth, certain types of bridges, and removable partial dentures.

Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost one or more teeth due to periodontal disease or an injury. Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. A thorough evaluation by your dentist will help determine whether dental implants are right for you. Even if you aren't an ideal candidate, there are various procedures including bone grafting and sinus augmentation that can help prepare your mouth to accept implants.

Single Tooth Replacement

Benefits of an all-ceramic crown implant:

Dental Implant ProceduresWhen both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.

In this case, a so-called one-piece implant is used. This means that all components are installed as a single unit, resulting in immediately full functioning teeth, shorter treatment time and minimized pain.

  • Immediately functioning teeth
  • Excellent esthetic result
  • Life long, stable solution
 

Treatment:
This procedure normally includes four visits to the dentist. You should expect to be able to work the day after having the implant installed.

Course Of Treatment

Intalling the New Tooth Step by Step

The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.

 

 Dental Implantment  Dental Implant Colorado Springs
1: Before the procedure

The dentist makes a first examination and takes one or more x-rays of the area to prepare for the procedure.

2: Installing the implant

The implant is installed. At this time, a temporary tooth is provided that allows you eat and function like normal almost immediately.  The implant will need a few months to integrate with the jawbone before the next step is taken.

 

 

 Attaching a New Crown  End Result of Crown Implant
3: Attaching the new crown

The final step is the placement of the permanent ceramic tooth. The new tooth is installed for life. No additional treatment is needed.

4: End result

You should expect the new tooth to fit and function just like a natural tooth. Do your usual dental hygiene to keep the tooth and gum around it clean.

Alternatives To An All-Ceramic Crown On Implant

 

 Tooth-supported Fixed Bridge Tooth-supported fixed bridge

A traditional bridge involves grinding down adjacent teeth to support the bridge. It is a stable solution with good aesthetics and function that is fairly easy to install. However, this alternative has two main disadvantages: continuous bone resorbtion in the edentulous area, and sacrificing healthy teeth on behalf of the bridge.

 Removable Partial Denture Removable partial denture

This is not a permanent alternative to a lost tooth. It is unstable and loosely attached, which affects both function and comfort. A removable partial denture is made of plastic, a material that can't create the same esthetic result as a ceramic crown. The benefits are few but do exist: adjacent teeth aren't affected. It is easily and quickly installed and relatively cheap.

 Resin-Bonded Bridge Resin-bonded bridge

This alternative has some clear advantages: it is quickly installed, functions well and, since it is made of ceramic, it gives a high esthetic result. Moreover, natural healthy teeth aren't affected. But it is not very permanent. The resin-bonded bridge will eventually come off, probably after just a couple of years, and will then have to be reinstalled.

Multiple Tooth Replacement

Benefits with fixed bridge on implants:

Multiple Tooth ReplacementIn this case, when replacing three teeth in the far back of the mouth, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the only fixed alternative. Traditional dentures can't offer the same stability or function.

Having dental implants replacing your lost back teeth will give you new, unparalleled strength and stability that allows you to eat what you want. It will also preserve your jawbone and facial appearance.

  • The only fixed alternative in this situation.
  • A stable, secure solution that lets you eat what you want
  • Preserves your facial appearance and prevents bone loss
 

Treatment:

After the initial examination, you can expect 4-5 additional visits until the final fixed bridge is permanently attached. It is normal to experience some minor bruising and swelling in the gum and soft tissue afterwards. Any discomfort is usually treated with an ordinary painkiller. You should expect to be able to work the next day.

Course Of Treatment

FIXED BRIDGE: STEP-BY-STEP

The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.

FIXED BRIDGE Procedure Fixing a Teeth Bridge
1: Before the procedure

Three teeth at back end of the mouth are missing. The only real replacement alternative is installing a fixed bridge. The bridge contains all teeth in one piece and is anchored on dental implants.

2: Installing the implant

First, the implants are installed. This is normally done in a single session. A temporary bridge may be placed at the same time, making it possible for you to function like normal almost immediately after leaving the dentist.

 Attaching a Bridge  Result of Fixed Bridge
3: Attaching the bridge

The implants need to integrate with the jawbone before the permanent bridge is attached. This is normally done 1-2 months after the implant installation. The time will vary, depending on the teeth affected and the aesthetical demands.

4: End result

The new bridge will handle all the pressure that your strong, natural back teeth did. You will have a stable and secure solution that allows you to eat what you want.

 

Alternatives To Fixed Bridge

 

Removable Partial Denture Removable partial denture

This alternative is often perceived as uncomfortable and a bit complicated to use. Function ca not be compared to that of a bridge. This denture is made of plastic and metal, which affects its look. It is quite expensive to fabricate due to its many parts. However, the installation process is simple, and natural teeth are spared.

Full Arch Replacement

Benefits of a fixed bridge on implants

Full Arch ReplacementWhen all teeth are missing or in such condition that they need to be replaced, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the best permanent solution

Before dental implants, there were no fixed solution available for people who lost all their teeth. Today, it is possible to replace a full jaw with dental implants and a fixed bridge that results in a permanent, stable and high esthetic solution.

  • Lets you eat and function like having natural teeth
  • A solid, stable solution that will serve you for life
  • Preserves yoru facial appearance and prevents bone loss
 

Treatment:
The treatment procedure and number of visits is largely dependent on the specific conditions. But all in all, 8-10 visits should be enough to have a fixed bridge installed. Most patients report that they were much more comfortable following the procedure than they had anticipated.

Course Of Treatment

Fixed Bridge - Step by Step

The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.

 

Before Implant  Attaching Impants
1: Before the procedure

The dentist determines what needs to be done and prepares both himself and the patient for the coming treatment procedure.

2: Installing the implants

The first step is installing dental implants to replace the lost tooth roots. In this case, five implants are used. Temporary teeth are attached that enable you to eat and function like normal while waiting for the permanent bridge to be installed.

 

 

 

 Attaching the Bridge  Dental Impant
3: Attaching the bridge

The final bridge is securely installed on top of the implants. With a full jaw replacement like this, it normally takes 2-3 visits to have the bridge completely attached.

4: End result

Your new teeth should be hard to tell from natural teeth both for you and others. People who have had traditional dentures before getting a fixed bridge often describe this as an overwhelming and very positive experience.

Alternatives to a Fixed Bridge

 

 
implant anchored overdenture
 
implant anchored overdenture
Removable, implant anchored overdenture

A removable full denture that is connected to either a ball or bar attachment, which in turn is anchored on two or more implants in the front part of the jaw.

The implants help keep the denture in place and provide better function and comfort. Cost is usually the reason why this solution is chosen over a fixed bridge, although the end result can't be compared.

 Denture Full Removal Denture Full Removal

A denture that is loosely placed on top of the gum to cover the lost teeth. This alternative has no real advantages except for its low price and easy installation.

The disadvantages are many: discomfort in eating, poor esthetics, affected speech, and sore gums from denture movement. Moreover, a full denture placed in the upper jaw severely reduces the sense of taste.
