Dental implants in one office
Dr. Hall is one of relatively few dentists to offer patients the convenience and precision of in-office CEREC technology. Many implant dentists work with an outside laboratory to create their patients’ restorations. This means that typically every step of the dental implant procedure is completed by Dr. Hall. It is rare that Dr. Hall has to refer a patient to an outside office. He can complete most implants at The Studio for Exceptional Dentistry in Colorado Springs with the use of modern dental technology.
The dental implant process
The dental implants process takes some time, but for the right patient, the results are worth the wait. After the placement of the implant post, your jaw bone will grow around the implant in a process known as osseointegration. This can take a few months, but it is vital to the strength and longevity of the dental implant.
As osseointegration occurs, you will wear a temporary dental crown to protect the implant and provide some functionality. When Dr. Hall has confirmed that the implant is fixed in place, your dental-grade porcelain crown will be created using our in-house CEREC technology. Dr. Hall will then attach the dental crown to the implant post, ensuring a proper fit and color tone to match your smile.
With a good dental hygiene routine that includes daily brushing and flossing, as well as regular dental check-ups, your dental implants can help you maintain proper bite function and a beautiful smile for years to come.

Once you have had a dental implant placed, you need to take care of it just as you would your natural teeth. This means committing to a good dental hygiene routine that includes daily brushing and flossing, as well as regular dental check-ups. With the proper care, your dental implant can last for a lifetime and help you maintain your proper bite function, as well as a beautiful smile for many years.
In order to undergo a dental implant procedure, you should ideally have healthy gums as well as a sufficient amount of jawbone in which the implant can be placed. Before Dr. Hall begins the process, he will use a special 3-D imaging system to create a comprehensive image of your mouth, including detailed images of your teeth and jaw. This will allow him to thoroughly assess whether dental implants are the best treatment for your particular case. If you go ahead with the implant procedure, we highly recommend that you do not smoke, as this can cause issues with the osseointegration process.
There are a number of benefits to choosing a dental implant. Because they are fused with the jawbone, they function just like natural teeth so your ability to eat and speak will be effectively restored. Replacing a missing tooth with an implant can also help to prevent other oral health problems, as the gaps left by missing teeth can contribute to bone loss as well as gum disease and decay. Dental implants are also a very convenient option, as they look and feel just like natural teeth, plus they are designed to match your surrounding teeth for a natural-looking smile.
Besides the aesthetic advantages of replacing a missing tooth, there are also a number of health benefits. Without treatment, a missing tooth can actually lead to come severe oral health problems. A gap left by a missing tooth can affect one’s ability to chew and speak properly, while gaps can also provide space for bacteria to accumulate. Missing teeth can also allow the remaining teeth to shift and can contribute to a loss of bone in the jaw. Replacing a missing tooth can help you avoid all of these issues.
We will create your dental implant at our practice. In fact, Dr. Hall is one of a few dentists who are able to offer an in-office service. He makes use of in-house CEREC technology to fabricate an implant that is completely customized to fit you in terms of shape, size, and color. While many implant dentists work with an outside laboratory to create restorations, Dr. Hall generally performs every step of the process at his office, making your treatment even more convenient.
Once Dr. Hall has determined that the treatment is right for you, he will surgically place your implant post into your jawbone. Over time, the jawbone will grow around the implant in a process known as osseointegration. When the post has fused with the bone and Dr. Hall has confirmed that the implant is properly secured in place, he will create a dental-grade porcelain crown with the use of our in-house CEREC technology. The crown will be attached to the implant post, and Dr. Hall will ensure a proper fit and color tone to match your surrounding teeth.
