Implants For Single Or Multiple Teeth Replacement

When you have a tooth or multiple teeth in need of replacement, our dentists at Castle Rock Dental can help you replace any damaged or missing teeth with dental implants. By using implants, you can regain full use of your teeth without any constraints and achieve a natural and perfect smile.

How Dental Implants Work

Benefits of Dental Implants Compared to Other Treatments

Dental implants are artificial teeth which are just a strong and natural-looking at your original teeth. They are made up of three basic parts: titanium post, abutment, and crown. The titanium post will be set into your jawbone, where it will be securely anchored as your jaw heals around the post.

The crown will be color-matched to your other teeth to help present a uniform appearance with your natural teeth. Once your post is healed, the crown will be attached to the abutment and post.

As our dentists, Dr. Bronecki and Dr. Sullivan, have focused on dental implants and dentures services, you can be sure to receive the best quality dental implant help at our office.

Types Of Dental Implants In Action

There are many ways in which teeth can go missing or be damaged enough to be in need of replacement. Due to this and other factors, there are many ways which our skilled dentists can use dental implants to replace single or multiple teeth.

Basic Dental Implant

If you are missing one or several teeth, you can have a dental implant placed. Dental implants are the most stable replacement for your natural teeth and they can be fabricated to resemble any of your missing teeth. Multiple dental implants can be costly, which is why there are other alternatives to receiving all implanted replacement teeth.

Dental Bridge Implant

If you have multiple teeth missing in the same area, then a dental bridge implant is a possible option. Instead of the potential damage to your remaining healthy teeth you might have with a traditional dental bridge, a dental bridge implant will keep your healthy teeth from suffering any damage from the implantation process.

Cantilever Dental Implant

A type of dental bridge, if you are missing two conjoining teeth and want a dental bridge implanted, a cantilever dental bridge implant is a good option. It is less invasive than a dental bridge implant which requires two implanted posts and has the added effect of not needing to traumatize a tooth with a more traditional cantilever dental bridge.

Removable Implanted Dentures

Removable dentures which are supported by implant posts are another possibility when you have a large amount of dental damage or missing many teeth. The support structure created by the implanted posts help make the dentures more secure than traditional dentures, yet still removable. This type of implanted denture is still not quite as secure as a fixed implant denture.

Fixed Implant Dentures

The most secure form of dentures, implant-fixed dentures are non-removable and fully stable. You don’t have to worry that sticky food will dislodge your dentures and never have to mess with an adhesive cream when you opt to have your dentures implanted. Also, having dentures implanted is a much more cost-effective option than having a mouth full of individual dental implants.

Factors To Consider With Dental Implants

When it comes to dental implants, there are factors for you to consider prior to having a dental implant placed.

  • Cost – A single dental implant can cost anywhere from $1,000-$6,000 out-of-pocket. Dental insurance can help defray some of the costs but if you have multiple teeth missing, you may want to cost the various dental implant options there are with our dentists.
  • Duration – Dental implants are some of the longest lasting options when it comes to replacing missing teeth. On average, a dental implant will last between 10-15 years, with the possibility of lasting longer with good oral hygiene.
  • Care – You can treat your dental implants like your own natural teeth. They will be just as secure and tough as your original teeth. The only exception is that you need to be sure to inform our dental hygienists as they clean your teeth, so they don’t damage your dental implant.
  • Support – When you choose to have a dental implant, you are choosing to support the natural function of your mouth and jaw. The titanium post will support the jawbone so you do not suffer bone density loss. Also, as it will be custom-fit for your jaw, your bite will be improved with the dental implant taking the place of the missing or damaged tooth.
  • Pre-implant – It does take a while to have a dental implant placed. So, once you know you would like to have dental implants placed, the sooner you start to work with our dentists, the sooner you will have the smile you want.
