Dental implants are the ultimate solution for replacing missing teeth. At Northern Colorado Periodontics, we are pleased to perform dental implant surgery for many patients in the Fort Collins, CO, area. Our periodontists have earned a reputation for excellence, and are the first choice referral for many restorative dentists in this region. We can perform the placement of your implants, and in some cases, provide an immediate temporary restoration. We also perform all types of preparatory procedures, if needed.
About Dental Implant Surgery
The surgical placement procedure is crucial to the success of your dental implants outcome. The implanted posts are designed to fuse with your bone to become a permanent, stable fixture in your jaw. It is essential that each implant is ideally placed to support your new prosthetic teeth. Northern Colorado Periodontics pays particular attention to the planing phase, using 3-D, computerized digital imaging to ensure precise placement. Our surgeons are highly experienced and skilled, and our office is equipped with the latest digital imaging technology and computerized tomography (CT) scanners to improve your overall treatment process.
For your comfort, you can choose from either oral conscious or intravenous (IV) dental sedation during your procedure. Once you are ready, your surgeon will carefully make incisions in your gums. Using your detailed scans, they will gently make room in your jaw before placing your implant posts, disturbing the surrounding tissue as little as possible. Our advanced technology and experience helps to ensure your implants are placed in strongest areas of your jaw.
If you are receiving traditional dental implants, your doctor will close the incisions once the posts have been placed, and you will spend the next four to six months healing before receiving abutments to hold your permanent restoration in place. In some cases, we can provide same-day restorations. We will coordinate with your restorative dentist to provide your temporary restoration during the same procedure. Often, same-day restorations will be available for patients undergoing treatment with the All-on4® method. During this procedure, our doctors will place four implants in your jaw. The front two are placed traditionally, while the back two are placed at an angle to make the most of your current jawbone strength and tissue.
