About Dental Implants
For a lasting and attractive substitute for lost teeth, advanced dental techniques at Dental Arts Of Windsor in Windsor, CO by our dentists use dental implants to repair and bring back a gorgeous, fully-functioning mouth. Dental implants surgically insert titanium posts in the jaw to substitute for the weakened root, so false teeth can be joined for a dependable fit that will not involve food restrictions or glues. The false teeth will be shaded and shaped by our dentists to blend with the patient's teeth for a natural finish. For individuals who are wanting to restore a single tooth or many teeth, dental implants at Dental Arts Of Windsor can be an ideal, effective option.

"I have been through a lot of traumatic experiences with dentists that have put me through lots of pain. I found out I needed more fillings when I began going to Dr. Barry and I was reluctant, but the process took 20 minutes for two fillings and I could sense his confidence in the matter. He acts like it’s a walk in the park and that helped me get through it. I was worried when I began going home, but after taking some ibuprofen before the feeling came back and I can officially say that that was the first experience where I had 100% no pain coming out! Not only that but every other filling I have gotten in the past requested that I make 1-5 appointments afterward in order to fix the high spots that dentists would leave. Dr. Barry got my bite feeling perfect in one try! He had got a skill."- S.W. / Google / Mar 15, 2018
What to Expect
Before a dental implant is used, a in-depth oral exam will be completed by our dentists to decide the strength and health of the jawbone and gums. If the person is a suitable candidate for dental implants, dental X-rays and molds will allow our dentists to plan the ideal location for the dental implants in the jawbone. The individual can be put under local anesthesia and/or local sedation to minimize discomfort while our dentists implant the titanium post into the tooth socket. During the next 3 - 6 months, the implant and jawbone will fuse together while the bone heals and after the dental implant is strong enough, the false tooth or teeth can be added to the dental implant by a connector. Our dentists can tweak the dental implant and false teeth for a snug and confident fit.
Generally, patients experience minor or no discomfort following their dental implants, however a handful of patients may feel short-term tenderness and discomfort that should be helped using an over-the-counter pain killer, such as Tylenol® or aspirin. To lengthen the wear of dental implants, patients should develop a good home dental care practice that includes daily brushing and flossing. Bi-annual appointments at Dental Arts Of Windsor in Windsor, CO for dental cleanings and exams are also crucial to dental implant care. Dental implants will last many years with correct care, however dental implants will eventually require repairs or replacement.
If dental implants are proven to be a medical need, the patient's dental insurance company will usually pay for part of the bill. But, elective dental implants are typically generally not paid by insurance plans. At the time of the patient's initial consultation, the office manager of Dental Arts Of Windsor can calculate their insurance coverage and go over payment methods and financing available through our office.
