The condition of your teeth significantly impacts your quality of life. Fillings and root canals are costly and inconvenient. If the teeth can’t be saved, tooth extraction brings more physical and psychological pain. Extraction is usually followed by bone recession.
While dentures are preferable to having no teeth at all, they come with a host of troubles. They can irritate gums and make breathing, eating and talking difficult. Dentures are not a one-and-done solution for missing teeth, requiring relines as the jaw shrinks.
But there is hope! Dental implant technology at New Image Dental Implant Center improves the quality of life for patients wearing traditional dentures. Implants can slow declining oral health caused by tooth loss.
Dental implants can be used to replace several teeth and/or anchor over dentures. Mini dental implants (also called denture-stabilization implants) allow your dentist to securely attach an appliance so that it won’t slip or irritate gums. Small titanium posts are implanted into the jawbone and fuse with the surrounding bone, creating a stable base for an over-denture.
Did you know that some denture-wearing patients retain only ten percent of their chewing ability? Implant-supported dentures can stop bone recession and restore near-normal chewing ability. This results in better nutrition and overall physical health. The psychological benefits are equally valuable. Free of embarrassing denture-slipping, our patients are happier and more confident about their smile.
Before you spend money on another denture reline, ask us about denture-stabilization implants. Call the caring staff at New Image Dental Implant Center for a consultation today!
Your smile is one of your greatest assets. Have you ever thought about the many functions that it plays in your daily life? Without a complete and healthy smile, you couldn’t talk, laugh, eat, and associate with others in the same way. Your smile is one of the first features other people notice about you, and each person’s unique smile communicates their personality to others. Losing a tooth not only affects your talking and eating habits but also your self-confidence and appearance.
Cosmetic dental implants have the closest resemblance to your natural teeth of any tooth replacement solution. A recent article in the Dental Health magazine suggests that one of the best things about dental tooth implants is that they look and feel 100% natural. No one will have to know you have prosthetic teeth.
Cosmetic dental implants not only restore your complete and beautiful smile; they also restore your peace of mind. Restorations like traditional dentures rest directly on the gums and can make embarrassing sucking noises or slip and slide around your mouth. The stability and permanent placement of cosmetic dental implants put your mind at rest so that you can focus on the important things in your life. Cosmetic dental implants are anchored down into the gums and jawbone (like natural tooth roots) so that they can give natural chewing support.
With so many things to get done in a day, you don’t want to be worrying about extra maintenance for your teeth. Cosmetic dental implants can be cared for just like your natural teeth, with excellent dental hygiene habits. Taking a few extra minutes to floss and brush each day will benefit all of your teeth, including your cosmetic dental implant.
To learn more about how cosmetic dental implants can benefit your smile and fit into your lifestyle, contact New Image Dental Implant Center in Denver to schedule an initial consultation and find out if you are a good candidate for dental implants.
If you have missing teeth, it is essential that you replace them. Not only might you be feeling self-conscious about your missing teeth, but there are other issues that go along with missing teeth.
Without all your teeth, chewing and eating can destabilize your bite and cause you discomfort. This generally leads to uneven wear on your remaining teeth, but there is also the propensity for your teeth to start shifting. Ultimately, this can mean you will be dealing with even more missing teeth in the future.
Dental implants are a great option for replacing missing or badly diseased teeth. A dental implant offers comfort, support, and stability. And hands down, it is as close to a natural tooth that a tooth restoration can be.
There are many benefits to dental implants:
- Dental implants restore your ability to chew food properly.
• They fill out a face that may otherwise look sunken in because of missing teeth.
• They don’t need to be removed for overnight cleaning and soaking.
• No adhesives are needed.
• You’ll feel more confident to show off your smile to the world.
• Each implant is created to fit in perfectly with the look of the rest of your teeth.
Dental implants are not for everyone, but if you’re in good health, have healthy gums, and have enough bone structure to support an implant. A simple visit to our office will reveal if a dental implant is the best option to restore your smile to its absolute best.
If you are considering dental implants, call our Cherry Creek office today at 720-398-0949 or fill out the form on our website so you can come meet with a dental implant dentist and start on the path to a confident and healthy smile.
Are you living with missing teeth? Do you have dentures? Do you have a dental bridge? Have you considered dental implants? If so, you have probably been wondering if it is worth the investment. Let’s break it down.
Say your car breaks down. You take it to a trusted mechanic and have it looked over. The mechanic comes back to you and tells you that you’re going to need some new parts but you have some options. One option is going to be cheaper, it will fix the problem but your car won’t run as well and you’ll have to get replacement parts at the very least one more time in the future. The second option is going to be more expensive, but your car will run smoothly, feel as good as new, and better yet the new parts will last forever! What do you think Cherry Creek? What option are you going to choose? I would venture to guess that most people would choose the later. So why is it that when it comes down to our cars we would invest more than in our own health and quality of life?
Dental implants can be your option number two. Dentures and bridges have been a wonderful solution to people with missing teeth for many years, but now with dental implant technology, your new Image Dental Implant Center dentists can provide a healthier and superior solution that can last a lifetime. Denture wearers know that the constant wiggling, slipping, rubbing and clicking can be extremely irritating and uncomfortable. They make it hard to eat and taste. When you have a dental bridge the healthy teeth on either side often have to be shaven down in order for the bridge to fit. These healthy teeth often become unhealthy, even to the point of needing to be extracted. When you have missing teeth there is no root to stimulate your jaw bone. What does this mean? It means that your bone will actually start to degenerate and recede.
Dental Implants are the solution to all of these problems! They feel like real teeth! They’re securely anchored in place and don’t wiggle around. They replace both the root and visible tooth which means your jaw bone is happy and you are happy. They are by far the healthiest and best solution for people with missing teeth. So let me ask you Cherry Creek, are dental implants worth it? Is your quality of life worth it? Here at New Image Dental Implant Center we believe you are worth it!
Denture wearers are no stranger to the instability of their chosen tooth replacement. Wouldn’t it be great if you could adhere your denture to your jaw and never have to remove it? Well you can! All-on-4 is exactly what you are looking for and today we will discuss why this method is such a great option for you denture wearers out there.
Affordability: In the past, if you wanted a fixed denture, it required at least 6 implants. This made fixed dentures very costly. However, with the all-on-4 method, only four implants are needed.
One Day: On the day of your procedure you will go in with no teeth and come out with a functioning set of pearly whites that you can use to eat.
Bone Loss Prevention: With dental implants placed in your jaw bone, the natural shrinking of a toothless jaw is halted. This will keep your bone at a healthy level.
Natural: This is the implant retained denture that is most natural. You will never have to remove it from your mouth and feel free to eat what you want!
There are many reasons why All-on-4 implant retained dentures are the best option for tooth replacement. Visit our page about All on 4 to learn more. If you live in Denver or Cherry Creek and have questions, call us today to schedule a consultation with our skilled doctors.
Denture-related stomatitis is most often caused by over-wearing the denture (not removing it while sleeping) or by inadequate oral hygiene. While denture-related stomatitis is usually mild and treatable, it is just one more potential inconvenience related to dentures. Some of our denture-wearing Cherry Creek patients also complain of slipping, discomfort, clicking, and a decrease in the ability to taste food.
At New Image Dental Implant Center in Cherry Creek, we regularly see this common problem. Most often occurring in our Denver and Cherry Creek patients who wear a complete upper denture, denture-related stomatitis causes inflammation, redness, and pain of the oral mucous membrane beneath the denture. The condition is also sometimes called ‘denture sore mouth.’
If you have experienced any of these problems with your dentures, it might be time to consider implant dentistry. We offer several options for our denture-wearing patients to improve the stability and function of their teeth. Not to mention, dental implants can last a lifetime – no more relining or replacing those dentures!
Call New Image Dental Implant Center at 720-398-0949 to schedule a consultation. We’ll take you through the available options and help you make the best choice for you.

When a tooth’s nerve and pulp becomes infected, a dentist and patient must make a choice of whether to attempt to save the tooth by performing a root canal or to extract the tooth.
There are several factors that influence this decision. These include whether there is infection in the surrounding bone, the amount and condition of the remaining tooth structure, the strength of the supporting bone, and the presence of periodontal disease.
During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp of the tooth is removed. This tissue contains veins, arteries and lymph vessels. The dentist or endodontist uses files of various sizes to clean out the canals. Once the roots are cleaned out and widened, they are filled with a special rubber material that seals them off.
A root canal is usually the most conservative treatment when a root is infected or a tooth has severe decay or damage. Root canals have been performed with success for generations and have a very low failure rate. But there is always a slight possibility that a tooth with a root canal can have complications down the road. If there was a tiny crack in the treated tooth, it can become re-infected. Teeth with curved roots are more difficult to fill and they can also become re-infected. Occasionally, the tip of a file can break off in a root during the procedure and cause problems.
Because there is always a slight risk that a root canal can fail and eventually require extraction, some patients wonder if they should just get a dental implant in the first place. This is not a black and white decision. Like root canals, dental implants have a high success rate. But there are risks with dental implants, as well.
If you have been told that a root canal or a dental implant is necessary, talk with your dentist about the pros and cons of each procedure. Dental implants are the best tooth replacement option out there, and we specialize in placing and restoring dental implants. Call 720-457-3402 today to schedule your consultation and learn about the implant options available to you.

When you lose a tooth, oral health consequences immediately follow. They can range from bone loss to shifting teeth, but one thing is agreed upon by dentists – tooth loss is bad for your dental health and needs to be addressed as soon as possible. Here are some of the problems you will avoid by getting dental implants at New Image Dental Implant Center to replace missing teeth.
Tooth Shifting: Just like when you pull a book from a bookshelf and the surrounding books fall to fill the space, your teeth will follow the same principle. What once was a straight smile can quickly turn into crooked teeth. If you see a dental implant dentist soon after you lose your tooth, you can replace your missing tooth before shifting occurs and save yourself a lot of trouble.
TMJ Syndrome: When teeth shift out of alignment after tooth loss, bite problems usually develop. When the upper and lower jaws don’t meet properly, it strains and damages the jaw joint (TMJ).
Gum Disease/Tooth Decay: Once teeth shift out of alignment, it is harder to reach some spots with your toothbrush or floss. When plaque and bacteria aren’t reached, tooth decay and periodontal disease develop, often causing further tooth loss.
Bone Loss: The reason why older individuals faces appear so differently once they have lost many of their teeth is because without teeth, our jaw bone levels recede and this affects the facial appearance. The fastest rate of bone loss occurs within the the first six months after losing a tooth so it is very important to see a dental implant dentist as soon as you’ve lost your tooth.
Whatever your need is for a tooth implant procedure, you can feel comfortable that your investment is a great choice that will prevent later problems and the need for more expensive procedures. Give us a call today at 720-398-0933 to schedule a consultation.
