    Lakewood, Colorado implant dentist Dr. Sam Kawakami of Denver West Dental Group provides thorough consultation and demystifies the implant process for new patients seeking the benefits of this long-term solution to some more severe dental problems. Dr. Kawakami uses the latest technology with the goal of providing the most efficient, comfortable and successful procedure possible for his patients.

    Dental implants are a popular, permanent solution for missing, broken, rotten or extracted teeth. Implants are considered superior to alternatives like bridges and crowns, since no additional teeth are required to undergo any alteration for the successful placement of a new implant. The implant process may take a few months to bring to completion. During the first phase, the implant is installed. A housing is inserted into the jaw bone through an incision in the gumline which then can accept the screw-based implant. During this first phase, multiple housings can be seated if necessary. After the implants are placed, the gums are sutured and allowed to heal.

    After a recovery time of 3-6 months, when the gum heals, the jaw bone will have formed around the implant, achieving osseointegration. During this period, temporary crowns may be to enable normal eating and speaking, and to maintain a normal aesthetic appearance. Once healing is complete, an abutment is placed on the implant. The abutment serves as the base for the new tooth, and allows the creation the permanent restoration by enabling an impression, which Dr. Kawakami skillfully makes to match each patient perfectly. Once the restoration is created, Dr. Kawakami attaches the permanent restoration, rejuvenating the smile and allowing the patient to return to a life with healthy teeth.

    Dr. Kawakami’s use of the latest technology makes implants a viable solution for many patients who are seeking permanent solutions to severe dental conditions. Some exclusions result from patients having chronic illnesses, heart disease, or severe osteoporosis. Implant costs and insurance coverage can be discussed during the initial consultation. With routine dental hygiene, dental implant can last a lifetime.
