Welcome to Altura Periodontics, Greenwood Village’s premier center for dental implant services. At Altura, we specialize in dental implants, All-On-4, teeth in a day, and the best periodontal care.

Although many options exist to replace a missing tooth, only one provides the look, feel, and function of real teeth: dental implants which can improve quality of life in a very concrete way. People who have felt embarrassed and worried because of their tooth problems are often overwhelmed by what new permanent teeth can do for their self-esteem.

Most people are candidates for an implant regardless of their age and today, hundreds of thousands of patients have dental implants placed each year.

With more than three decades of clinical experience and over millions of patients treated, statistics confirm a success rate of nearly 95 percent for dental implants and even higher for the bridges they support.

We can design a treatment plan that will help you to achieve the stable, natural-looking, beautiful smile that you have always dreamed of having.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

While tooth-supported dental bridges may only last 5-10 years if properly taken care of, they will need to be replaced at some point. Dental implants, on the other hand, are built to last, providing a lasting solution for a whole lifetime. However, take note that the endurance of your implant highly depends on regular proper care.

Implants do not require support from adjacent teeth Unlike bridges that rely on adjacent teeth for support, dental implants are held in place by the implant that was riveted into the jaw bone, ensuring a strong and sturdy foundation.

The next best thing to healthy natural teeth. Dental implants restore the natural look and feel of a real tooth. What’s even better, is that other than looking and feeling real, the implants actually function just as well as a real tooth; dental implants are strong and stable.

Initial consultation

During your first consultation, we will perform a comprehensive oral exam and take X-rays of your mouth to show you where a dental implant may be necessary and determine whether your gums and jaw can accommodate for the dental implants procedure. In some cases, bone grafting may be necessary to create a more supportive bone structure. We spend time with each patient to understand their needs and create a customized plan for them.

Understanding the dental implant procedure

A damaged tooth is removed.

After 4-6 months of healing, access hole is made in gum to uncover implant and a post screwed into the implant.

Implants may hold single crowns or multiple crowns and bridges. Aside from holding crowns, implants can be used to support partial dentures and ‘overlays,’ where the appliance is supported by implants, but can’t be removed.

Dental implants provide many benefits. For one, they slow or stop the process of jawbone shrinkage that causes the face to look older. Implants offer an incredible improvement in comfort, speech, eating and convenience over conventional dentures

dental implants process

If you have lost a tooth or have multiple missing teeth, you need to explore the different tooth restoration options available as soon as possible. If you need a full smile restoration, you should consider the all-on-4 procedure. This is a state of the art way to affix a denture appliance to four implants that are strategically placed. We have some of the best surgeons available in the Denver area. We can usually place the teeth on the same day.
