Dental Implant Placement

The first step in replacing your missing teeth is placing your dental implants. Our skilled dentist will help ensure that your implant post is placed precisely so that you can achieve optimal results for your smile and oral health. To learn more about dental implant placement in Monument, Colorado, and schedule a consultation with Dr. Jeffrey Yelle, call Mountain Wellness Dentistry today at 719-488-2375.

The first stage of your implant treatment is the dental implant placement. This involves the surgical placement of the implant post into your jawbone. The implant post is a small screw, usually made of titanium or another biocompatible material, which works to replace your tooth root. Once placed, it will function just like your original tooth root to stimulate your supporting jawbone and provide a stable foundation for your teeth and implant restoration. We will provide detailed post-op instructions to help you heal following this procedure.

A period of healing will follow your implant placement procedure. During this healing period, the implant post will integrate with your jawbone to ensure a stable, long-term result for your treatment. This process is known as “osseointegration.” Our dentist will be able to work with you to create and place your implant restoration following this healing period.

If you have lost supporting bone tissue prior to receiving an implant, you may need a bone grafting treatment before you can have an implant placed. Likewise, any pre-existing conditions, such as tooth decay or gum disease, will need to be treated before you can receive an implant.
