Permanently Replace Missing Teeth

Dental Implants in Loveland

Dental implants are permanent, beautiful way to restore one or more missing teeth 

We offer both single-implant restorations and full-arch restorations.

Dental implants are a cost-effective, long-term method of restoring your smile with a lifespan of 30+ years with proper oral hygiene.

Implants protect your oral health by preventing common conditions related to tooth-loss, such as teeth shifting and bone resorption.

What Are Dental Implants

Dental implants are small rods of titanium, which typically have a screw shape. They are designed to function as an artificial tooth root, and are surgically placed into your gum and jaw tissue permanently. 

Once they have been placed into the mouth and healed, dental implants can be used to support a wide variety of different restorations. One implant can support a single crown to replace one missing tooth, two implants can support a dental bridge, or a series of 4-6 implants can attach to a set of implant-retained dentures to replace a full arch of missing teeth.

Because of this, dental implants are very versatile. Whether you are missing just a single tooth in Loveland Lakes, or you’re missing most or all of your teeth, dental implants may be the best way to restore your smile.

Not only that, but dental implants are very long-lasting and durable. They essentially become a natural part of your body, since they integrate with your jaw and gums. If you care for them properly, you can keep your implants for the rest of your life. 

Why Do I need an implant?

You may need a dental implant if you’ve lost one or more teeth in Loveland Lakes. It’s very important to replace missing teeth as soon as you can, because this helps preserve your jawbone and your oral health. If you don’t get an implant, your remaining teeth may shift toward the empty socket, and the bone below your missing teeth will begin to deteriorate. 

Dental implants can be used to replace teeth that have been lost to tooth decay and infection, oral trauma, and even gum disease, in some cases. If you have lost one or more of your teeth due to these conditions but your mouth is relatively healthy, an implant is likely the best option for you.

Even if you have a dental bridge or a partial denture to replace one or more missing teeth, you may need a dental implant if you want to preserve your overall oral health. This is because implants stimulate the jaw bone below your missing tooth, strengthening it and preventing it from deteriorating after tooth loss.

Bridges and dentures don’t do this, so the underlying jaw structure will continue to weaken over time. If you want to prioritize your long-term oral health, an implant may be a superior choice, even if you already have another restoration for your missing tooth.

How Long Does It Take To Get An Implant?

Overall, the process typically takes about 7 months. After your initial consultation, it will take about 1-2 weeks to plan the placement of your implant. Dr. Marlor will use advanced x-rays and digital imaging to ensure the implant is placed perfectly in your mouth.

Then, you’ll have your implant placed into your mouth. It will take you about 1-2 weeks to fully recover from this process. However, even though your mouth will be healed, it will take an additional 3-6 months for the implant to bond with the jaw bone through the process of “osseointegration.” 

Then, once the implant has fully healed and bonded with the bone, your restoration, such as a dental crown, can be placed, completing the procedure. Implants take a lot longer than alternatives like dentures or dental bridges, but they offer better long-term results, so they’re worth the investment. 

What Are Dental Implant Restorations?

Dental implant restorations, also called “implant-supported restorations,” are false teeth that are attached to your implant to replace your missing teeth.

Dental implants consist of two different parts: the implant itself and the restoration. The implant is a small post made of titanium, which is surgically implanted directly into your mouth. This implant functions as an artificial tooth root. Once it heals and bonds with the surrounding tissue through a process called osseointegration, it can be used to support the restoration. The restoration is a dental prosthesis or crown that looks and feels just like a normal tooth. The most common type of restoration is a single-tooth restoration. This treatment uses a ceramic crown, which is attached directly to the implant to replace a single missing tooth, and restore your smile.

Multiple dental implants can also be used to support a full-arch restoration, like a permanent dental bridge, or a set of implant-supported dentures. These restorations are a good alternative to traditional dentures and offer benefits like a better fit, enhanced longevity, and a more natural, comfortable look and feel.

What Can I Expect from the Single Implant Restoration Process?

First, you’ll need to see an oral surgeon to have your treatment plan developed, and to have your dental implant placed. Once your implant has been placed, it will take about 3-6 months for it to bond permanently with your gums and your jaw bone. 

During this time, Dr. Marlor will begin developing your implant restoration. Using impressions and images of your smile, he will work with a dental laboratory to create a crown that matches your teeth perfectly. Once your mouth has healed completely, you’ll come in for a follow-up appointment and your new tooth will be bonded into place permanently.

What Can I Expect From The Full-Arch Restoration Process?

The full-arch restoration process is similar to the single implant restoration process, but may take longer. This is because any remaining teeth much be extracted from your upper, lower, or both arches before your implants can be placed. Next, 4-6 implants are inserted in each arch of your teeth and you’ll be given a temporary denture or bridge to wear as your gums heal. 

You will be given about 3-6 months to allow the implants to bond to your jaw bone, and during this time Dr. Marlor will begin creating your permanent dental bridge or removable implant-supported denture. Once your mouth has healed, your bridge or denture will be checked for proper fit. Finally, Dr. Marlor will attach your restoration to complete your treatment.
