FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Am I a good candidate for an implant?
Dental implants are the best way to give you back your smile and most people are candidates regardless of their age. So, chances are great that you are!
When you lose one or multiple teeth chances are you have never become fully accustomed to losing such a vital part of yourself. Dental implants can be your doorway to renewed self confidence and peace of mind.
If you are considering a dental implant, you must be examined thoroughly. There are also treatments to improve the outcome, such as bone grafting, that may be recommended.
…But It Doesn’t Hurt!
Contrary to popular belief, pain is not the only sign that something is wrong with your teeth and just because you don’t feel any pain it doesn’t mean that there isn’t a disease present. Regular visits to the dentist are very important to assess any potential problems and remove them before they do start to hurt you.
What is involved in dental implant surgery?
What to expect: undergoing the procedure does not have to be stressful or cause anxiety. Most dental implant surgery procedures are performed in our Denver Dental Implant Center and local anesthesia is usually adequate for these outpatient procedures. While frequently there is no pain, some discomfort around the implant is to be expected during the recovery process since it is a surgery.
DENTAL IMPLANTS ARE CHANGING THE WAY PEOPLE LIVE.
The dental implant placement surgery is one of the most effective type of surgery with a success rate of over 95%. Once placed, it serves all the functions of a natural tooth- no eating restrictions or speaking impediments, effectively replacing the root of the tooth and simulates the bone so that bone loss does not occur. People are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.
