Dental Implants

During the last twenty-five years , the use of dental implants has become more widespread, and the associated technologies more advanced, bringing about a new standard for tooth replacement. As a standalone option for tooth replacement, dental implants are commonly thought to maximize durability, functionality and comfort for the patient.  Dr. James B. Troxell is a board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon in Fort Collins and is  experienced in placing implants.

Dr. Troxell’s approach to implant-based restoration is highly comprehensive and patient-specific. Using 3D-imagings (x-rays) and impressions, Dr. Troxell first assesses the long-term viability of implants as a restorative option for the patient. In some cases, Dr. Troxell may use bone and tissue grafting techniques prior to implant placement. Dr. Troxell uses titanium implants manufactured by industry-leader, Nobel Biocare.

An oral examination and a medical history evaluation is done prior to the procedure. Generally  the implant is allowed to heal 4-6 months before placement of the crown restoration. The treatment is coordinated with the restorative dentist or prosthodontist.

All-on-4

Patients who would otherwise wear full dentures (either on the upper, lower, or both arches of the mouth) have a viable alternative thanks to dental implant technology. The All-on-4 restoration method uses four or more dental implants to secure a full denture in place. Placement of the prosthesis (denture) is done at the time of the multiple dental implant placement.
