Berthoud Dental Care Promises to Get Your Smile Back With Dental Implants

Restorative dentistry has undergone many changes over the years, just like your smile. Dentists used to be only able to offer replacement teeth that sat on top of your gums. These sometimes didn’t blend in with the surrounding teeth, and they tended to come loose. Although dentures still have benefits for specific situations, Berthoud Dental Care is excited to let you know that we also offer dental implants that create a natural smile that you don’t have to take out.

 Dental implants are right for you if you’ve lost one or more teeth due to decay or a severe mouth injury. You can also get implants to replace a poorly fitting denture or failing bridge. The possibilities are wide open when you choose to take advantage of Dr. Jim Deschene’s expertise and experience.

One of the reasons why we recommend dental implants over other tooth replacement options is that the metal posts serve as a substitute for the natural tooth root that was lost. The implant stimulates the jaw bone to help maintain the strength that you need to maintain your facial structure and hold the rest of your teeth in place. Without dental implants, your face shape can change over time. Gum disease and further tooth loss are also likely if you choose to leave a gap in your mouth.

In Berthoud, Colorado, our dental practice stands out for its high-tech office that uses the latest advances in dental care to perform our implant services. The placement of the dental implants in a precise manner is accomplished with Dr. Deschene’s high powered microscope, and we offer additional services such as laser dentistry to improve your gum health before we proceed with placing the implants. This technology increases our ability to ensure proper infection control and healing that brings your smile back to life.

The science behind implant dentistry is impressive, and you can trust that we use every advantage that we have available to make sure that your procedure is a success. We also know that you care about how your smile looks when it is finished. Once your implant post bonds to the jawbone in a process called osseointegration, Dr. Deschene can then begin to prepare the crowns that are the visible portion of your smile restoration.

Your implant crowns are made using an impression of your mouth to make sure that you achieve the perfect placement. The crowns are then carefully examined by our dentist to make sure that there are no imperfections before they are placed on the posts. In most cases, the entire series of procedures are finished within six to eight months. As a courtesy to you, we also offer temporary dentures that you can wear while you await your final and permanent smile.

Dr. Jim Deschene takes time with each patient to carefully assess their candidacy for dental implants. After a thorough exam and radiographs, he sits down with you to let you know your options. Whether you need a single tooth implant or a complete arch, you’ll have a brand new and correctly functioning smile within a few short months.
