Restore Your Teeth With Natural-Looking Dental Implants

Missing teeth can affect more than your appearance. They can lead to bone loss, gum disease, shifting teeth and misalignment with the jawbone. Thankfully, our dentist and team can work with you to prevent this from happening with natural-looking dental implants here at Durango Laser Dentistry. We offer full implant treatment from start to finish, eliminating the need for referrals.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are long-lasting restorations used to replace one or multiple teeth. These are placed into the jawbone with a small titanium screw to create a stable foundation to your restoration. They are also made to look and function like real teeth, so you do not have to worry about compromising the aesthetics of your smile.

The Step-By-Step Process

The first step of the dental implant process is the initial consultation. During this time, our dentist will assess your oral health with advanced technology to plan out your treatment. Dr. Mason Miner may also check to see if you need a bone graft prior to the implant placement to ensure your jawbone can support this restoration.

After you have completed the consultation process, we move forward with the implant placement, where we insert a tiny screw into the jawbone. Once this is done, you will enter a recovery period before returning back to our office for us to place a restoration on top of the implant post. This restoration may be a crown, bridge, or complete or partial denture, based on your needs.

Mini Implants for Denture Retention

Already wear dentures but want a more stable solution? If so, mini implants are a great option if you struggle with denture retention. These smaller implants are placed in the jawbone and are designed to help stabilize dentures, providing a more comfortable and secure fit. Unlike traditional implants, mini implants require less time for healing and can be placed in just one appointment, making them a convenient option for many patients. Additionally, mini implants are typically more affordable than traditional implants, making them an accessible option for those on a budget.

With a consultation at Durango Laser Dentistry, we can help you determine if mini implants are the right solution for you and provide the personalized care you need to achieve a comfortable, secure and beautiful smile.

Dental Implants FAQ

What are dental implants and how do they work?

Dental implants are durable, natural-looking solutions for replacing missing teeth. They consist of a titanium screw inserted into the jawbone, acting as a root for the new tooth. This provides a stable foundation for a crown, bridge, or denture that looks and functions like your real teeth.

Can dental implants help prevent oral health issues?

Yes, dental implants play a crucial role in maintaining oral health. They prevent bone loss, reduce the risk of gum disease, and stop remaining teeth from shifting, which could lead to misalignment and jawbone issues.

What is the process of getting dental implants at Durango Laser Dentistry?

The process begins with an initial consultation where your oral health is assessed using advanced technology. If needed, a bone graft may be performed to ensure your jaw can support the implant. After the implant placement, there’s a recovery period before the final restoration, such as a crown or denture, is added.
