Completing Smiles with Dental Implants in Littleton & Ken Caryl

Dental implants offer patients a more natural feeling and functioning tooth replacement option. Unlike traditional treatments that only restore the visible parts of teeth, dental implants renew the entire dental structure: roots and crown. Littleton dentist, Susan Kutis, DDS is happy to offer patients from Ken Caryl and other nearby locations dental implant placement and restoration all in one comfortable, convenient practice. At Blue Sage Dental, we are dedicated to offering comprehensive restorative dentistry services to every patient, and dental implants are some of the most advanced treatments we provide. Contact our team to schedule a dental implant consultation today.

Dental Implant Placements

Most patients are pleasantly surprised by how comfortable the surgical implant placement procedure and recovery period are. This first phase of treatment is remarkably simple. Dr. Kutis places a small incision in the gum line and places the dental implant post and attaches an abutment that will connect the implant to the restoration. While the surgical site heals and the implant fuses with the gum tissue and jawbone, a protective covering that promotes healing and tissue regrowth is placed over the top of the implant and abutment. This procedure is actually more comfortable and less likely to lead to complication than tooth extractions, and we use quality dental implant materials and placement techniques that have a success rate higher than 95%. Depending on the number and location of dental implant posts, patients may need to wait three to six months to have their permanent restoration placed.

Dental Implant Restorations

Once the implant post is fully fused with the jawbone, patients return to our practice for a dental restoration. We are able to replace any number of teeth from a single tooth to a full arch. Implant-retained replacement options include:
