What is a Dental Implant?
Sometimes losing a tooth is inevitable. Suffering with a space is not! With the improved technology of implants, there is a reliable, long-term, non-removable option! This is as close to a new tooth as you can get! By placing an artificial root (or implant) in the bone, a single tooth can be placed, eliminating the need for bridges, partial dentures, or simply allowing the teeth to shift and bone to melt away. This treatment is surprisingly comfortable and is covered by an increasing number of dental insurance plans.
The new implant resembles the old tooth’s root and can be used to chew and eat anything you enjoyed with your natural tooth.
Why Choose a Dental Implant?
With this technology, you have a single tooth that you floss and brush like a regular tooth, without worry of damaging the other teeth through bridge preparation or partial denture wear. The average life of a bridge is 13 years, but the average life of an implant is 40 years and climbing! Dental implants are ideal for young people who are congenitally missing a tooth, since it keeps their other teeth healthy and avoids repeat treatments throughout their life. Dental implant placement causes relatively little discomfort due to the fact that bone doesn’t have any nerves. We always prescribe pain medication for implant placement procedures, but many people don’t even fill them!

What are the risks?
Dental implant placement is a surgical procedure. Like any surgical procedure, there are risks and potential complications. Most of these risks can be prevented through proper diagnosis and imaging. Dr. Fowler makes sure that no details are missed and that he has a full understanding of what your individual anatomy, bone structure, and available space are prior to surgery. A major tool in this is imaging with CT scans. Modern Cone Beam CT, or CBCT, scans can show a three-dimensional image of your jaw, which aids in implant placement and avoiding the main risks of implant surgery, which can include damaging nerves or blood vessels. Benchmark Dental is the only general dentistry office in our area with a state-of-the-art 3D PaX Duo3D Radiographic Cone Beam CT Scanner.
Dr. Fowler received his implant training at the Rocky Mountain Dental Institute in Denver, Colorado. He is a member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and is working towards a fellowship with that body.
