Dental implants are an ultra-secure tooth replacement solution that Dr. Gasper offers in our Colorado Springs practice. If you are missing teeth, dental implants will restore lost oral function and aesthetics, and with proper care, they can last a lifetime.
Are you a good candidate?
- Dental implants are best suited to patients with good oral health. If you have advanced tooth decay, you will need to have it fixed before the implants can be placed. Gum disease also needs to be resolved before the surgery.
- A good candidate needs to have plenty of healthy bone tissue so that the implants can be firmly anchored. If it’s determined that a client does not have enough bone to support an implant restoration, bone grafting procedures may be considered.
- Patients should also be in good general health. Diseases that weaken the immune system or interfere with the body’s healing capabilities might prevent someone from being a good candidate. Other diseases, such as hemophilia, can lead to uncontrolled bleeding during the surgery. Be sure to address all of your health concerns with your dentist.
- Patients who smoke or use smokeless tobacco products may preclude the use of dental implant therapy.
Dr. Gasper has invested in the advanced technology of coDiagnostiX® CT scans and 3D software. With the coDiagnostiX system, Dr. Gasper can plan a computer-guided implant process that is more precise than ever.
