Dentist in Bayfield, CO
West Dental Implants & Prosthetics provides tooth replacement and restorative dentistry procedures to our patients in Bayfield, CO. Our dental team specializes in replacing missing teeth to restore your smile. We offer prosthetic and restorative solutions to missing teeth, as well as other dental services to keep your smile looking and functioning at its best.
If you’re looking for dental implants in Bayfield, Dr. Robison can help. Our dental practice offers dental implants to meet the needs of all our patients. Whether you are missing just one tooth or you need all your teeth replaced, we can restore your smile to its former glory.
All-on-4 dental implants can replace an entire arch of upper or lower teeth. They use four titanium posts to serve as artificial tooth root replacements that support a full row of prosthetic teeth. All-on-4 dental implants look and function just like natural teeth. They are strong, durable, and can last a lifetime. Our patients love all-on-4 implants because the surgery can be done in just one visit, leaving you with a permanent solution to missing teeth.
If you need a single tooth replaced, either from dental decay or trauma, we can provide a single-tooth implant. A single-tooth implant also uses a titanium post that serves as a replacement for the tooth root. The post supports a dental crown that blends in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.
Implant-supported dentures are a preferred alternative to traditional dentures. They eliminate many of the disadvantages that are associated with removable dentures, like sticky adhesives or the need to remove and soak your dentures nightly. They are permanently fixed in the patient’s mouth with artificial posts that are fixed in the jawbone, which helps keep the jawbone strong and reduces the chance of bone deterioration and loss of facial structure.
If you need to have one or more of your teeth extracted, Dr. Robison and team will make sure your procedure is done quickly, effectively, and painlessly.
You may need a tooth extraction if:
- Your teeth have been badly damaged by decay and cannot be saved with other restorative treatments like a filling or root canal
- You have impacted wisdom teeth that are causing pain
- You have a cracked or chipped tooth that cannot be restored with a crown
- You need to have teeth removed in order to prepare for dental implants
- You have overcrowding and need to prepare for orthodontic treatment
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep apnea is a condition in which a person’s breathing is interrupted during sleep, usually due to the muscles in the back of the throat relaxing and collapsing in the airway. Not only does it cause poor sleep, but it can be very dangerous and detrimental to your overall health.
We offer the following treatments for sleep apnea:
Oral appliances can be worn at night to hold the tongue or lower jaw in a forward position while you sleep, which helps to keep the airway open. Custom-made oral appliances are effective in treating mild to moderate sleep apnea.
For more severe sleep apnea, we may recommend surgery to remove excess tissue from the throat or mouth to improve airflow.
We offer IV sedation to our patients in Bayfield to ensure pain-free dental procedures. With IV sedation, the patient will remain conscious throughout the entire procedure, but they won’t feel any pain or discomfort. IV sedation can be helpful when undergoing extensive dental procedures.
If you need oral surgery in Bayfield, CO, you can count on West Dental Implants & Prosthetics. Our team is skilled in performing the following surgeries:
Bone grafting may be needed to prepare for dental implants if the patient does not have sufficient jawbone to support the artificial tooth roots. Bone grafting surgery involves placing new bone or a bone substitute in places where there isn’t sufficient bone to support the implants.
Another solution to bone loss is sinus augmentation. For this procedure, Dr. Robison will place bone graft material in the sinus cavity, which will help raise the sinus floor and prepare for dental implants.
Platelet-rich plasma/platelet-rich fibrin procedures help promote healing after oral surgery. PRP/PRF is a holistic procedure where the platelets and plasma are separated from the blood and injected it into the surgical site to promote quick healing.
A frenectomy is most commonly performed on infants with tongue-tie, but can also be performed on adults. It is a common surgical procedure where a small piece of tissue that connects the lips or cheeks to the gums is removed so the patient can speak and eat properly.
After a tooth extraction, socket preservation may be used to protect the integrity of the jawbone by placing a bone graft into the empty socket where the tooth was removed. This helps to preserve the shape of the jawbone and prevent loss of facial structure.
This procedure helps to restore the natural shape of gum tissue in patients who have suffered from tooth loss. The procedure involves placing a bone graft in the area of bone loss, which will provide support for the gums.
Our cosmetic dentistry procedures can help our patients in Bayfield, CO, improve the appearance of their smile.
Tooth-colored fillings can restore chipped, cracked, or worn teeth so they look and function naturally.
Porcelain Dental Veneers
Porcelain dental veneers can improve the appearance of your smile by making your teeth look brighter, whiter, and more uniform in shape and size. Veneers are thin, custom-made porcelain shells that are placed on the front of the teeth.
Dental bonding uses a tooth-colored resin bonded to the teeth. It can correct cracked or chipped teeth, gaps between teeth, and crooked teeth.
Crowns are used to restore the function of teeth that have been damaged due to decay or dental trauma. They are also used as part of single-tooth dental implants.
Teeth whitening is a popular and minimally invasive procedure that can help to remove stains and give you a brighter, whiter smile. Professional teeth whitening is a quick and effective way to give your smile an upgrade!
