Dental Implants

dental implants surgeonMissing teeth can have a powerful impact on your self-confidence, health, speech and ability to eat effectively. Dental implants are an ideal tooth restoration for people who are missing one or more teeth as a result of an injury, periodontal disease or any other reason. If the jaw bone is in good condition, dental implants function identically to your natural teeth and, if cared for correctly, can last decades.

A dental implant is a metal post that Dr. White surgically positions into the jaw bone. Once the implant is secured and the bone surrounding it has had time to heal, a replacement tooth is attached to the post. Patients are put under general sedation for the duration of the procedure and may be prescribed a medication to treat any discomfort following the surgery.

While implants are typically more expensive than other common methods of tooth replacement, they provide superior benefits. Implants are stronger than natural teeth and generally last 10-20 years. They are also a more favorable option than bridgework since they do not depend on neighboring teeth for support.

In order to receive implants, you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone mass to support the implant. You must also be committed to excellent oral hygiene and regular dental visits, as these are critical to the long-term success of dental implants.

If you think you might benefit from dental implants we encourage you to consult with your dentist or call us at 303.344.2705 to discuss if you are a candidate for this procedure. You can also complete our online contact form and we will get in touch with you promptly!

  • Dr. White is by far the most competent, genuine and respectful person I have ever had the chance to meet in his profession. I trust him and I’m confident in his abilities and judgment. The staff is wonderful as well, and I know they truly care about my needs. For example, they called Dr. White to come take a look at the site where my wisdom teeth were removed when I was extra worried about the health of my mouth. I chose to see Dr. White because I believe an oral and maxillofacial surgeon has more expertise and experience than a general dentist and that surgeries such as wisdom teeth removal should be performed by someone who specializes in this area.” —Lawand Kamal
