If you’ve been looking for dental implants in Loveland, then you’ve come to the right place. Read on to learn more about dental implants.

Restoration

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a restorative solution that can replace your missing tooth. The implant itself is a post that’s surgically placed into the jawbone to provide a stable structure. The natural-looking prosthetic (artificial tooth/teeth) is then attached to the post, this will act as a tooth replacement.

Benefits of Dental Implants

There are many benefits to receiving dental implants, including:

  • Lifetime restoration
  • Natural-looking
  • Customized for you
  • Restores jawbone density
  • Maintains facial shape
  • Never develops decaying
  • Doesn’t require root canals

The Dental Implant Process

The process can be done in three appointments: initial consultation, implant placement, and completing the restoration.

Initial Consultation

During your initial consultation, Dr. Kreimer will review your medical history, evaluate your oral health, take X-rays and impressions of your mouth and perform any necessary dental treatments. You can use this time to talk about your smile goals and ask any questions you may have. If Dr. Kreimer determines dental implants are right for you, he’ll then develop your personalized treatment plan.

Implant Placement

Once you come back to our Loveland office, we’ll get started on your placement procedure. Dr. Kreimer will first administer a local anesthetic to ensure you won’t feel anything during the procedure. You can also choose one of the sedation dentistry options we have to ensure you’re relaxed and comfortable. 

After making sure you don’t feel anything and feel relaxed and comfortable, we’ll start the procedure:

Step 1: Dr. Kreimer will gently move your gums so space is provided for the implants.

Step 2: He’ll surgically place your implant anchor.

Step 3: From there, he’ll place a temporary cap and the gum tissue is repositioned back around the implant.

You’ll leave our office to begin the osseointegration process, this is the process where the bone will fuse into your implants to create a secure bond. This process can take anywhere from three to six months. Dr. Kreimer will give you instructions on the do’s and don’ts during your healing period.

Completing the Restoration

Once you’ve healed, you’ll come back into our office and finish off the restoration:

Step 1: The temporary cap is removed from the anchor and the post is attached to the anchor.

Step 2: Impressions of the implant will be taken so the appropriate prosthetic is made.

Step 3: Afterward, the prosthetic is ready and placed into the implant.

You’ll leave our office with a brand new smile. With your new smile, you can continue to smile without hesitation and eat your favorite foods without worrying as you were used to when you were without your teeth.
