DENTAL IMPLANT SURGERY - GRAND JUNCTION AND MONTROSE, CO

BOOST YOUR SMILE AESTHETICS AND QUALITY OF LIFE

DENTAL IMPLANT SURGERY PROVIDES AMAZING RESULTS

According to studies, an estimated 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth and about 40 million are missing all their teeth. Trauma, tooth decay, gum disease, and poor nutrition are contributing factors. Tooth loss can compromise your ability to chew, eat, and speak properly, especially if you have multiple missing teeth. Other physical consequences include loss of bone and shifting of surrounding teeth, decay in adjacent teeth, gum infections, bite misalignment, and premature changes to your facial structure. The compassionate team at Grand Valley Denture and Implants has extensive experience placing full mouth dental implants in Grand Junction and Montrose, CO. We leverage advanced technology, training, skills, and an onsite state-of-the-art lab for optimal results. You’ll benefit from seeing a doctor that dedicates his practice solely to crafting high-quality tooth replacement solutions. Dr. Siona Motufau has a passion for helping patients achieve healthy smiles through extraordinary care, from the first consultation to final restoration.

DENTAL IMPLANTS OFFER AMAZING OUTCOMES, VERSATILITY AND DURABILITY

Dental implants have a proven success rate of 95-98%, which is significantly higher than any other tooth replacement option. Securely fixed in your jawbone, dental implants restore 99% of natural biting and chewing power. They offer amazing versatility because they can be used to replace one tooth, a row of teeth, a complete arch of missing teeth or to support dentures. And they offer incredible durability because they can last 25 years or even a lifetime, depending on the age you have them placed. Dental implants blend natural beauty with function, making it possible to eat comfortably and feel confident smiling, while improving your oral health, physical health, and overall quality of life. For these reasons, dental implants are considered the gold standard tooth replacement. While adequate bone in your jaw and healthy gums are required for successful outcomes, Dr. Motufau has the advanced skills to treat gum disease and bone loss, which enables most patients to receive full mouth dental implants in Montrose and Grand Junction, CO and enjoy their many benefits.

COMPARING YOUR TOOTH REPLACEMENT OPTIONS

Dental bridges and conventional dentures are often recommended for tooth loss, but both have some limitations and associated problems. A bridge requires altering the two teeth adjacent to the empty space in order to place the abutment or anchoring crown. Traditional dentures present issues including difficulty eating and speaking, clicking, slipping, the need to remove and clean them, and messy adhesives.  Ultimately, neither solution delivers fully restored function nor the stimulation needed to maintain a healthy jawbone.

Dental implants are a contemporary and permanent solution designed to address these needs and more. A dental implant consists of a titanium post or screw that is placed in your natural jawbone beneath the gap left by the missing tooth. The titanium fixture integrates with your natural jawbone over a period of 3-6 months. A connector (abutment) is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support the crowns.

The Long-Lasting Benefits of Dental Implants

THREE STEPS TO A NEW SMILE

Unlike corporate implant centers, at Grand Valley Dentures and Implants we personalize treatment, so the term one-size-fits-all approach isn’t in our vocabulary! During the initial complimentary consultation for dental implants in Grand Junction or Montrose, CO, we’ll discuss your personal smile goals, dental and medical health, perform a thorough exam, and take images with a CBCT scanner for an in-depth look at your jawbone. We use the 3-D images to create a template that will precisely guides optimal placement of your implants. In addition to creating a detailed treatment plan, Dr. Motufau will discuss all aspects of the process so you know what to expect every step of the way. Before you leave, our front office staff will schedule your dental implant surgery appointment.

We use NeoDent GM implant technology because it’s designed for predictable immediate treatments in all bone types and offers a stable and strong foundation for long-term beautiful natural aesthetics and success. In some cases, we can extract teeth or perform bone grafting during this same appointment, thereby reducing the number of visits. If you decided during your initial consultation that you want sedation, we offer a variety of options and work with a nurse anesthetist that administers and monitors IV sedation during your surgery. Next, using the customized surgical guide, we precisely place the dental implant(s) in the pre-planned location(s) in your jawbone. Before you leave our office, we’ll provide a temporary dental crown or set of teeth we mill from PMMA, a biocompatible acrylic. Any postoperative discomfort can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Healing time differs from person to person. In general, it can take three months or longer to heal completely. During that period, dental implants permanently fuse with your jawbone through a process called osseointegration. This process is critical for implant stability and considered a prerequisite for implant loading and long-term clinical success. After you’ve fully healed, you’ll return to our practice to receive your final restorations. Our high-quality dental implants provide a natural-looking and fully functional solution that can last a lifetime with a combination of proper placement, ongoing proper oral hygiene, and professional care.

We Provide Total Implant Care

Dental implants can positively impact your daily life and health in significant ways. But before you commit to treatment, it’s important to see an experienced and trustworthy dental implant specialist with a proven track record. Most practices rely on outside labs to fabricate restorations and many dentists don’t perform preliminary treatments. Since dental school, Dr. Motufau knew he wanted to dedicate his practice to the science of dental implantology. In addition to an impressive track record placing over 4,000 implants, he continually strives to expand these skills through continuing education. Having a dental lab on site provides a host of benefits including improved digital treatment workflow and surgical experiences, greater customization for beautiful restorations, and predictably long-lasting results. We welcome you to schedule a consultation to learn more about how our dental implant team can transform your oral health, overall health, and quality of life at two modern practice locations in Montrose and Grand Junction, CO.
