Dental Implants in Aspen, CO
What are Dental Implants?
Tooth loss is a common dental issue that affects millions of Americans. Poor oral health and low self-esteem can result from missing teeth which can make treatment much more difficult. At Elevate Dental Wellness, we use dental implants to restore health, boost confidence, and protect your facial structure. They appear just like your natural teeth and act similarly to a strong, stable tooth root that enhances your ability to eat, speak, and smile with ease.
Dr. Van Gorden and Dr. Steinbach feature dental implants for our Aspen and Basalt patients so they can attain a stunning smile through our safe and effective procedure. Whether you’re looking to replace one or more missing teeth, a full arch, or you’re interested in a snap-in denture to replace your traditional one, we’re eager to help you reach your desired oral health.
Your Implant Options
Depending on how many of your teeth are missing, we'll suggest different implant solutions based on your oral health and dental needs. Each patient is unique and will have their own customized treatment. This means the cost of your implant procedure will vary and can be determined at your consultation.
Based on how many implants you need, we'll offer different options, including:
- Single or Multi-Tooth Replacement: Used for individual missing teeth
- Full-Arch Tooth Replacement: Needed for a bridge of missing teeth
- Snap-In Implant-Supported Denture: For an entire upper or lower jaw of lost teeth
The Restoration Process
Your journey to a rejuvenated smile starts with a consultation with one of our qualified implant dentists. Here at Elevate Dental Wellness, we utilize innovative technology that helps us design a precise and suitable treatment plan just for you.
Once our highly-skilled dentists have created your treatment plan, we’ll schedule your implant placement as soon as possible. Then our implant dentist will surgically place your implant fixture, the part of the implant that forms a secure attachment to your jawbone.
Through a process known as osseointegration, your jawbone will bond with a titanium fixture. Once this process is complete, you’ll return to our office and our implant dentists will place your new permanent crown. Your porcelain crown is custom-crafted to blend in with your smile.
Getting Ready for Your Dental Implants
Our tooth restorations are customized to each individual so your dental necessities and goals can be achieved. However, not every patient will be ready for dental implants right away. Dr. Van Gorden and Dr. Steinbach will first examine the health of your smile. If you have strong gums, healthy teeth, and good overall oral health, you’ll most likely be immediately cleared for our restorative treatment.
For those who may require one or more additional treatments to improve their oral health and prepare for the dental implant process, we offer supplemental treatments. For example, we may need to extract any damaged teeth to prepare the surgical site for treatment. Or, some patients may require bone grafting to fortify your jawbone so it can better support the implant.
