Get Your New Smile in a Day at Denver Dentures and Implants

Are you tired of the long waiting periods associated with traditional dental implants? We have the perfect solution for you – immediate load dental implants. This cutting-edge service allows you to walk out of our clinic with a brand-new smile in just one day.

What Are Immediate Load Dental Implants?

Immediate load dental implants, also known as “same-day implants,” are revolutionizing the way dental implants are done. Unlike the traditional type that requires a healing period between the placement of the implant and the attachment of the crown, the immediate load kind allows for both materials to be placed in a single visit. This eliminates the need for multiple appointments and a long waiting period, offering you a quicker path to a restored smile.

The Immediate Load Dental Implants Procedure

Initial Consultation

Our expert dentists will evaluate your dental health, discuss your needs, and determine if immediate load dental implants are the right fit for you. This session will include X-rays and possibly a CT scan to assess the condition of your jawbone.

Treatment Planning

Based on the initial consultation, a bespoke treatment plan will be designed to address your distinct dental requirements. This will outline the number of implants needed, the type of anesthesia to be used, and any preparatory procedures, if necessary.

Implant Placement

On the day of the procedure, you’ll be welcomed into our state-of-the-art facility, where our skilled dental team will prepare you for implantation. Local anesthesia or sedation will be administered for your comfort. The implants are then precisely placed into the jawbone, serving as the foundation for your new teeth.

Attaching Temporary Crowns

Immediately following the placement, temporary crowns are attached to the implants. These serve as placeholders while your custom, permanent crowns are being crafted in our on-site dental lab.

Post-Procedure Care

After the procedure, you’ll be given detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth healing process. Our team will organize follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments.

Final Restoration

Once your jawbone has fully integrated with the implants and the healing process is complete, you’ll return to our clinic for the placement of your permanent crowns. Designed to emulate the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, these implants guarantee a seamless result.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many implants will I need?

The upper implant denture will need at least 4 implants. The lower implant denture will need at least 2 dental implants. The more implants you have, the more secure the denture will typically be. This is especially true for the lower denture. Three or four implants in the lower is generally much better than just two.

I have had dentures for a long time, are implants still an option?

In most cases, yes! Our doctor will just need to see you for a free consultation, during which we will do a 3D CBCT scan of your mouth to see if you have enough bone for dental implants.

Will I get to use the implants (snap my dentures on to them) the same day of the procedure?

No, we must allow time for the implants to integrate with the bone. This is what makes your implants truly stable and will help ensure you enjoy many years, or decades, of use out of them. We usually wait between four and six months before securing to your implants.

Will there be pain after the implants are placed?

While experiences will vary, you can expect some soreness and possibly swelling after the procedure. Many patients come in the next day for their post op appointment, reporting minimal tenderness. You will be prescribed pain medication to help relieve any discomfort.

Can I be put to sleep for my procedure?

Our practice does not currently put patients to sleep, however, we do offer both oral & IV conscious sedation. To learn more about these options click here. This medication will help you relax and often makes it so you don’t even remember the procedure. If you choose this, we will write a prescription, which you can pick it up at your local pharmacy. NOTE: A driver is REQUIRED for the procedure, someone who can drive you once you have taken your oral sedation medication. You MUST NOT operate a motor vehicle or any machinery after taking this medication.

Are implant dentures really secure?

Yes! Implant dentures are much more secure than dentures alone, and we are able to increase the retention with even stronger inserts if you prefer.

Can I remove the palate (roof of mouth) of this type of denture?

It depends. Ideally, we would need to spread out the dental implants in order to remove a portion of the palate in a snap-in denture. With our All-On-4 procedure, we can guarantee the ability to remove the palate, but that isn't always an option with snap-in dentures.

When we are able to remove the palate, this increases the ability to taste for many patients, and also increases hot and cold sensitivity, making for a more natural experience. For those patients with a severe gag reflex, removing the palate of the denture can also help provide relief.

When can I have the palate (middle part covering the roof of the mouth) removed from my denture?

If you are a candidate for a palate-less denture, it will be removed from your final denture. This is after healing and osseointegration are finished and we are ready to attach to your implants, approximately 4-6 months after placement of your implants.

How often will my implant inserts require changing?

Usually once or twice per year. This often depends on how many implants you have, the strength of your bite, how frequently you take your dentures in and out, and multiple other factors.

WARNING: PLEASE DO NOT BITE YOUR DENTURES INTO PLACE ON YOUR IMPLANTS! This can wear out the inserts much faster. Only place your implant dentures in by hand.

What is alveoloplasty? Why is it important?

Alveoplasty is a procedure where the doctor contours your jawbone. This procedure is important because it can significantly improve the fit and comfort of your dentures.

What are tori? Must they be removed?

Tori are bony knots that develop in the mouth of some patients. Tori are not harmful, however, they might prevent your denture(s) from fitting comfortably, so the doctor will often recommend having them removed.

Why am I salivating (drooling) so much?

This is completely normal when you first have a prosthesis (denture) placed in your mouth. Your mouth considers it a foreign object and attempts to “flush” it out. The increased salivation should stop within 2-3 days.

How long can I expect to bleed after the procedure?

Significant bleeding will have stopped before you leave the office, however, expect to have some slight bleeding (oozing) for one to three days after the procedure. Additionally, you can expect to notice increased salivation when we first put your denture(s) in. When this increased saliva mixes with a little blood, it can look like a lot of blood. If heavy bleeding continues, please call our office.

A home remedy which still works quite well to help clotting and reduce bleeding is to use tea bags. Get a standard tea bag, dampen it, squeeze out the extra water, place it on your extraction site (or sites), and the bags will help you clot. Multiple tea bags can be used if needed. Replace the tea bags if they get saturated with blood. The process can be repeated as many times as needed.

Do you offer this procedure with zirconia (non-metal) implants?

Our practice does not currently offer this type of implant. While titanium dental implants have been used for decades with a long track record of success, zirconia implants are very new to dentistry, so we do not know what their success will be long-term. We want the most successful, most predictable long-term results for our patients, and for these reasons, we do not use zirconia implants at this time.

Can food get lodged beneath my denture implant(s)?

Yes, any oral prosthetic will get some amount of food beneath it. The wonderful thing about implant dentures is how easy they are to clean. Just take them out; clean the denture(s), your gums, and implants; and snap them back in.

How much time should I take off work to recover after the procedure?

Every patient is different. Some return to work the following day, others wait up to two weeks. As there is always a chance of bruising and swelling, and you will need to get used to speaking and eating with your new teeth; the longer you can take off, the better.

What is a soft liner?

A soft liner is a cushion we place inside your denture to help it fit and feel better as your mouth heals and changes shape following extractions.

Am I too young for snap-in dentures?

No, this is not just a procedure for seniors. It is very common for patients in their 40s, 30s, even 20s to need teeth replacement. Replacing bad teeth can be extremely beneficial for your general physical health. Also, having teeth which allow you to have a confident smile, laugh, and converse can be very helpful for your psychological health. Again, wanting to replace teeth earlier in life is not uncommon.

What items should I have ready for after my procedure?

  • Ice packs
  • Wash cloths you don’t mind throwing away
  • Comfortable clothes you don’t mind throwing away
  • Soft foods such as:
          - soups
          - yogurt
          - cottage cheese
          - smoothies
          - protein shakes
          - eggs
          - mashed potatoes (gravy optional)

Once I have my prosthetic teeth attached, will I know how to use them immediately?

Just as you would need practice in order to get used to walking with a prosthetic leg, you will need patience and practice to get used to your new replacement teeth. With that being said, since they are attached using implants, your dentures will be much easier to get used to than regular dentures.

Will I know how to talk with my new teeth right away?

Again, this will take some time, but with some patience and practice, your tongue and mouth will quickly adjust. The letter S will be the toughest to pronounce. Practicing words like "sarcastic" and "seventy seven" can help you get used to your new teeth. Sometimes, patients might have a slight lisp long term with implant dentures.

Will my dentures still rock?

Some patients may experience very slight rocking with their implant dentures. For patients with 2 bottom implants, these will need to be placed in the front of your mouth making it possible for some rocking to happen. A dab of adhesive at the back on each side of the lower denture will usually correct this.

I can’t stand having the roof of my mouth covered. What are my options?

In this case, your best bet would be the All-On-4 procedure. Not all snap-in dentures can have the palate removed.

Can I remove implant dentures?

Yes. Having removable implant dentures makes cleaning them very easy. Just take them out; clean the denture(s), your gums, and implants; then snap them back in.

Can implants fail?

While titanium dental implants do have a 95+% success rate, yes, they can still fail. Some of the things that can cause them to fail:

  • failure to integrate into the bone
  • smoking
  • diabetes

If an implant fails within the first year, your dentist will replace it at no charge to you.

What is involved with maintaining implant dentures?

  • Snaps | Periodically you’ll need to replace the snap rings in the implant dentures. These wear and lose retention over time as you take your teeth in and out. They’re quick and affordable to have replaced.
  • Cleanings | Similar to natural teeth, you’ll need to have your implants professionally cleaned periodically. Any buildup on the implants will be removed and your dentures will be cleaned.
  • Periodic re-fittings | Your mouth can still change over time, so the dentures may need to be re-fitted to ensure their best performance and ensure that unnecessary stress isn’t being put on the implants.
  • Home maintenance | It takes just a few minutes a day. Take your dentures out 1-2 times per day and brush them with a denture brush or very soft bristled toothbrush. Also, remember to clean the implants. Scrub these with a very soft dental brush too.
