How Is A Dental Implant Inserted?

Implants are inserted into the jaw bone and extend into the mouth for attachment to the replacement teeth. You will not see the implants as they will be under the pink gum tissues. The process is very comfortable, and it is easier to numb bone than it is to numb teeth.

Where implants have been placed and properly maintained, the tendency is to preserve the tooth supporting bone mass because the bone is being used somewhat in the same way it was when the natural teeth were present. Therefore, many of the negative consequences of tooth loss can be avoided when implants are placed in a timely manner.

For this reason, sometimes Dr. Brown will recommend that the dental implants be placed the same day that the tooth is removed. Other times, it is best to wait for two to four months for initial healing after tooth removal before placing the implants.

Nevertheless, the best time to place implants is within the first year after tooth removal.

If you have been missing teeth for many years and bone loss has occurred; dental implants can still likely be placed to prevent further deterioration. Dr. Brown will evaluate your particular situation and advise you on the best course of action.

Orthodontic treatment uses gentle pressure on your teeth that will eventually move them into the correct position. This produces a smile that not only looks better but works better as well. Sometimes orthodontic treatment can produce a “face lift” effect and help your jaw muscles function properly as well.

Many dentists will refer you out to a specialist to have orthodontic work done but at Relaxation Dental we do this in house. This means you are only coming to one place and often able to coordinate visits for more than one family member. We can also accommodate your child’s orthodontic treatment after school hours so they don’t miss school.

We create and install a whole range of devices designed to correct and prevent dental irregularities and promote healthy smiles.

As a parent, you prioritize your child's health and well-being. You pay attention to their nutrition, encourage physical activities, and maintain meticulous hygiene practices. However, there's one aspect that often goes unnoticed but profoundly influences your child's overall health – the condition of their airways and the importance of proper breathing. The quality of their respiratory system directly impacts their growth, development, and susceptibility to various health problems.

Today, let's explore the vital role of your child's airways and shed light on why paying attention to their respiratory health is crucial for responsible parenting.

We have seen hundreds of people like yourself who are frightened, nervous, or just plain scared of dentistry.

We realize how important oral health is to our patients' overall health. We also know how dental phobias keep patients from seeking out treatment. Since neglect seldom leads to easy dental visits, this "fear of dentists" became a self-fulfilling prophecy. So to help our patients' dental phobias, we offer oral sedation, many patients who were too anxious, nervous, or too scared to get dental treatment done, now are much more willing and not as afraid to get the dental care that they need.

Accepting new patients, call to book a check up appointment.

Dr. Brown was one of 6 brothers and sisters, and was raised in Wasilla, AK until he was 14 years old. He obtained his GED early so that he could work as a contractor in Japan also working in California and Texas. He even began a competitive snowboarding sponsorship, but cut it short to serve a Christian mission in England.

After his return, he met his beautiful wife, Jessie, snowboarding the backcountry pass of Jackson Hole, WY. Together, they have 3 children; 10 yr old son, Kai, 8 yr old daughter, Taya, and 3 yr old daughter Trinlee.

Dr. Brown finished his undergraduate schooling at University of Oregon, in Lundquist College of Business Honors Program. After working in business management only a short while, he realized he had not arrived where he wanted to be. After much research, he and his wife realized that a career in Dentistry would fully utilize his various talents and his desire to make a difference. His family gave up a lot to support him through going back to school, but after just the first week, they knew it was worth it. He was almost shaking with excitement when he got home each day.

Several factors can affect the appearance of your child’s teeth, whether they come out aligned or uneven. One of them is genetics, but environmental variables, such as habits, can have a bigger influence on whether or not a child will need braces. Inherited traits cannot be changed, but daily practices can, and this can help ensure good long-term oral health for your child.

Since the mouth and jaw start to grow and change at a very young age, it's important to know how to help your child avoid misalignment problems. Seeking professional advice from your dentist can help your child avoid needing corrective dental procedures later on.

Read our blog for some things you can do to keep your child from needing braces.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a man-made replacement for the natural tooth root, which allows a person to return to non-removable teeth or a more secure prosthetic dental restoration.

Dental implants for tooth replacement have been around for more than sixty years now. Many people are familiar with hip or knee replacements to restore mobility. Dental implants utilize the same materials and technology- just smaller- to restore chewing function and health.

A dental implant is not a transplant, which would be taken from another individual.

A dental implant is made of medical grade titanium alloy. They look and feel just like your own teeth.

There are several types of dental implants of which Dr. Brown will select the most suited for your specific needs and general dental condition.

DID YOU KNOW.... endodontic treatment has an 80% success rate, but 20% of cases fail within the first 5 years? When less than half the tooth structure is present, an implant may be the best solution for restoring the tooth and biting surface. Also, only around 50% of teeth that require endodontic retreatment are successful. This information comes from the Gordon Christensen Clinicians Report.

Considering these statistics, implants can be a great alternative to endodontic treatment. Implants offer several benefits, including longevity, comfort, and aesthetics. Make the switch to implants and experience superior dental health. Call us today to learn more! (719) 539-3145

I love creating, developing, and working with the most amazing team and the most stellar people I know. I love changing lives-- The lives of our team members by creating growth and development opportunities they wouldn’t normally have access to. Changing lives of our patients by creating access to a level of compassionate, quality, care that is above and beyond anything they can get anywhere else, much less in a small town, as well as creating a safe environment where they can feel 100% trust and 0% fear. And I love making a difference, helping people at all turns. Making things/communities/people better than when we found them. We’re making a difference individually and communally and that feels good to be a part of something so good. This all might all sound a little canned, but it’s 100% true!!! It’s exhilarating. I also love working with the best kind of people. Everyone here is hired for compassion, drive, intelligence & kindness first, and experience second. That makes for a very fun group of people to work with!!!

Dr. Brown’s Approach to Dental Care

"My goal is to offer the absolute best care to achieve optimal oral health. I want to help my patients be in control of their oral health. We achieve this together with education, excellent preventative care, a minimally invasive approach, & a huge focus on patient comfort. Should more advanced procedures be needed, I can save my patients time & money by not needing them to travel to or pay specialists higher fees. I am extensively educated, trained, & practiced in these areas.

If fear of pain is a factor holding you back, then I am your doc. I didn't like that I saw patients needing to go through so much more pain & suffering in dental care than in other healthcare fields. I hated that this often created a fear of & hesitancy in dental care. So, I sacrificed the time & money it took to become one of the very few dentists certified in oral and IV sedation procedures. This enables a stress-free, pain-free experience no matter how extensive (or not) your treatment plan is. I really am passionate about what I do & the amazing patients I have the privilege of caring for."
