About Dental Implants
For a long-term and attractive substitute for lost teeth, advanced dentistry at Trail View Dental Care in Parker, CO by our dentists use dental implants to build and reestablish a complete, fully-functioning mouth. Dental implants surgically put titanium posts in the jaw to simulate the missing root, so false teeth can be connected for a reliable fit that does not need glues or food restrictions. The false teeth will be dyed and shaped by our dentists to fit in with the patient's teeth for a natural look. For patients who are need to replace a single tooth or several teeth, dental implants at Trail View Dental Care can be a wonderful, long-term choice.

What to Expect
Before a dental implant is started, a full exam will be performed by our dentists to determine the strength and health of the jawbone and gums. If the individual is an acceptable candidate for dental implants, oral X-rays and impressions will assist our dentists to decide the ideal location for the dental implants in the jaw. The individual may be put under sedation and local anesthesia to relax the patient while our dentists put the titanium post into the jaw. In the next 3 - 6 months, the bone and implant will grow together while the bone heals and as soon as the dental implant is stable, the false tooth or teeth can be joined to the dental implant through a connector. Our dentists may alter the dental implant and false teeth for a snug and lasting fit.
Typical patients experience little or no discomfort following their dental implant procedure, however a few patients may experience short-term soreness and discomfort that may be treated using an over-the-counter pain killer, such as Tylenol® or aspirin. To extend the use of dental implants, patients should start a good home dental care regimen that includes brushing, flossing, and rinsing with antibacterial mouthwash. Consistent appointments at Trail View Dental Care in Parker, CO for dental cleanings and exams are also vital to caring for implants. Dental implants may last for a long time with correct care, however dental implants will eventually require repairs or replacement.
If dental implants are considered medically necessary, the patient's dental insurance policy might pay for some or most of the costs. Although, elective dental implants are typically generally not paid by insurance plans. At the patient's dental consultation, the office employees of Trail View Dental Care can confirm their insurance coverage and discuss payment methods and financing available through our office.
