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
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.

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.
