Indications for Implant Dentistry

Dental implants may be used to replace teeth in single-tooth spaces, groups of two or more missing teeth, or where the teeth are completely missing in one or both jaws. Once placed, the implants are used to support individual crowns, or bridges that are attached to the implants. Implants may also be used to help retain removable dentures more securely.
 

How Can I Benefit From Implant Dentistry?

Did you know that oral health is a major factor of good general health? Replacing your missing tooth with a dental implant and an implant crown should allow you to live your life as if you had never suffered from a missing tooth. When your treatment is complete, you should be able to chew, speak and socialize without experiencing the negative emotions that having a missing tooth can sometimes cause.
  1. Improved Quality Of Life: Dental implants are designed to be a long-lasting solution for tooth loss and are cared for with brushing and flossing, just like natural teeth. Caring for non-implant tooth replacements can be much less convenient compared to implant-supported teeth. Dental implants also eliminate the need to use messy dental adhesive
  2. Enhanced Appearance: When your tooth is lost, the surrounding bone begins to shrink away or resorb and becomes increasingly brittle, compromising adjacent teeth and increasing the chance of a changed appearance. Non-implant supported dentures, such as partials or bridges, may actually accelerate this process. Dental implants help to prevent or slow bone resorption, helping to preserve your natural facial contours.
 

Candidates for Implant Dentistry

Most of our Colorado Springs patients who are healthy with no restrictions for undergoing minor dental surgical procedures and who also have good oral hygiene are good candidates for implant dentistry. Dr. Hill will assess the potential implant site to determine whether there is sufficient bone volume and gum thickness to allow placement of an implant. We begin by providing a clinical examination that will involve inspection, palpation, and gentle probing of the potential implant site and adjacent teeth. In straightforward cases, simple dental x-rays are usually sufficient to examine the bone. In more complex cases, specialized implant x-rays, known as tomograms, are usually required.
 

Procedures for Implant Placement

In most cases, implants can be placed using local anesthesia in our office. In more complex cases, we may recommend that the surgical phase be performed while you are under general anesthesia in a specialist's office or in a hospital environment.
