Let’s Reinvent Your Smile with Dental Implants.

Losing permanent teeth accidently is a very common phenomenon. This can lead to difficulties with eating, self-confidence, and jaw pain. Our Thornton dentist at Timber Dental Care are prepared to provide you with all the required information you need to make informed decisions before starting the dental implants procedure, a method we believe to be extremely effective when replacing missing teeth and restoring smiles. Our dentist extensive knowledge and experience gives our team an unsurpassed level of expertise and ensures optimal results for you or your family.


How Many Teeth Need To Be Missing To Cause Long Term Problems?


That’s right, ONE. A single missing tooth ultimately leads to shifting in each of your remaining teeth and can cause you to lose additional ones needlessly. How can that be? Most people with a missing side or back tooth say to themselves, “I can’t see it. It doesn’t hurt. I’ll leave it like that.” Unfortunately, these are the words of the average, uninformed person who doesn’t realize the effects the loss of a tooth can cause.

Your teeth are the protective barrier which prevents bone to loss in your jaw. Without any tooth to stop it, the jawbone will slowly deteriorate over time, leading to pain, discomfort, and an increased likelihood for gum disease, tooth decay, and other oral infections.

It can also lead to further tooth loss which then leads to more issues.

This can cause difficulties with eating (which can cause digestion issues from poor chewing), speaking and laughing. Once jaw pain increases and jaw strength decreases, it might become impossible to eat certain nutritious foods like fibrous vegetables and protein-rich meats, which can make it difficult to consume the nutrients you need for a healthy life.

It may not be obvious at first, but lack of one or more teeth, especially front ones, can lead to self-consciousness. A confident smile is hard to achieve with a gaping hole in the middle of it. You may also tend to seem antisocial because smiling, talking or eating in front of others can be an ordeal.

Mother Nature designed your teeth to work together, each tooth performing a certain function. When a member of the group is lost, more work is required of the remaining teeth. They start to shift toward the hole left by the missing tooth, filling the vacuum.

Have you ever lost a tooth because you didn’t go to the dentist regularly and it decayed so much it fell out? Did your love of candy overwhelm your brushing style and the cavity has gone to the nerve requiring an extraction?

Is the big hole in your smile you got from running headlong into the third baseman or the flying tackle in football making you self-conscious? Are you having trouble eating after the car crash that caused your head to smash into the airbag and take out one or more of your incisors or canines? Did that tumble off the ladder at work leave you with a whistle whether you work or not?

Do you wear dentures that cause your gums to hurt or are too loose? Do you use messy goo to try and take away the pain and prevent them ending up in someone else’s lap? Does the product work, or do you find you have chronic inflammation from dentures that don’t fit properly? Chronic inflammation is one of the main causes of cancer and your dentures may cause you to be at risk.

Tooth decay and gum disease can lead to heart disease if not taken care of.

The amount of time that has passed after you lose the tooth does not matter for implant placement. The issue is that it is critical that there be enough bone present to support an implant. You may need extra procedures if you wait too long after the loss of the tooth.

If you wait, a few of the procedures you may need include:

Sinus Augmentation or Sinus Lift raises the sinus floor and to graft more bone into the sinus when an implant is to be placed in the maxilla (upper jaw). This will make more bone available to support a dental implant.

What Are The Benefits Of Dental Implants?

By preventing bone reabsorption that would normally occur with the loss of teeth, the facial structures remain intact. The lower one-third of the face can collapse if implants are not placed to preserve the bone making this especially important when all of the teeth are missing.

With replacement teeth that look, feel and function more like natural teeth, you will look younger and more attractive. Additionally, you will become even more confident and enjoy smiling, laughing, and talking with others.

You’ll get to eat better and prevent malnutrition or stomach problems. Fresh vegetables and fruits are back on the menu. You can now eat the foods you like. Your chewing will improve which boost your ability to digest foods.


Most of our patients love their new implants, because of their improved appearance, function, and comfort and health.

Your mouth will be restored as closely as possible to its natural state. By replacing the entire tooth, as well as the tooth root, it is possible to replicate the function of natural teeth, with a strong, stable foundation that allows comfortable biting and chewing. Also, nothing in the mouth looks or feels false or artificial!

Having implants decreases the risk of oral cancer and heart disease. It is much easier to care for any kind of implant versus dentures that get attached to remaining teeth. So, your chances of bacteria build up, and gum disease decreases when you have implants. Also, regular checkups will include early detection for oral cancer.

Eliminate Denture Adhesives FOREVER! With implants, the replacement tooth is securely attached to the implants so there is no need for messy denture adhesives.

Getting an implant means your other teeth will not be affected because of missing a tooth. Replacing missing teeth with Implant supported crowns and bridges does not involve the adjacent natural teeth, they are not compromised or damaged. For example, when you wear a partial denture, you have clamps that hook onto adjacent teeth, which put pressure on them that causes them to loosen and come out. And bridges require grinding down of the adjacent teeth so that the bridge can be cemented to them.

What Are Dental Implants?

Two-Stage Dental Implants are surgically placed into the jaw bone. After letting the mouth heal for a few months, another minor surgery is required to expose the implant and attach the dental implant abutment and temporary crown or restoration.

Endosteal Implants are surgically implanted directly into the jawbone. Once the surrounding gum tissue has healed, a second surgery is needed to connect a post to the original implant. Finally, an artificial tooth (or teeth) is attached to the post individually or grouped on a bridge or denture.

Single-Stage Dental Implants are done by placing a longer implant into the jaw and gum so that the top of the implant is exposed. After several months of healing, the abutment and restoration are placed right onto the implant without having to surgically expose the dental implant again.

Subperiosteal implants are a metal frame that is fitted onto the jawbone just below the gum tissue. As the gums heal, the frame becomes fixed to the jawbone. Posts, which are attached to the frame and protrude through the gums.

As with endosteal implants, artificial teeth are then mounted to the posts.

It is possible to replace all of the lower teeth with an over denture that is supported by only 2-4 implants. On the other hand, sometimes it might work in your advantage to replace your back teeth with an implant for each tooth to provide additional strength.

Who Can Get Dental Implants?

Almost any adult who is missing one or more teeth and in general good health is a candidate for dental implant treatment. You should have healthy gums and a commitment to caring for your teeth and implants. This includes proper brushing, flossing and regular dental checkups.

Specific Groups Of People Do Not Make Good Candidates For Implants:

Quality and quantity of available bone for implant placement is more often a factor in qualifying for dental implants than medical conditions. However, even people who have lost a significant amount of bone can qualify for dental implant treatment with additional procedures to add bone or create new bone.

Advances in this type of treatment have made it possible for thousands of patients to have successful implant procedures when they previously would not have been considered good candidates.

There are a few medical or mental health conditions that would keep someone from having implant treatment, depending on the extent and severity of the condition. You will need to discuss it with your trusted dentist .

We’d Love to Be Your Choice to Get your Implants Done!

My appointment with Timber dental was absolutely amazing! I was greeted with smiles from every person I talked to! The inside is beautifully designed and definitely made me feel more comfortable than any dentist office I’ve ever been to! Tailer was my assistant, she made me feel at home by putting my favorite show on the TV. She was telling me jokes, asking questions about my life, and simply making me feel more than just another dentist patient. Dr. Andrei was very thorough with showing me my x-rays and giving me step-by-step priorities on my treatment plan. I absolutely love this place and will recommend everyone here! 1000/10!

I loved coming to Timber Dental and meeting with Dr. Andrei and all of his staff. Based on my prior less than desirable experiences I know how hard it is to find a trustworthy and knowledgeable doctor. That is why I was so thoroughly impressed by the level of professionalism and care that I received at this office. I also appreciated that they were able to accommodate me for an emergency appointment with a very short notice. I will definitely be back to address other dental work that needs to be done. Thank you!

Great experience at Timber Dental, the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable, very punctual. Dr.Andrei was very patient and explained me all the steps necessary to fix my cavities. The lady who cleaned my teeth, I think her name was Leah was very friendly and efficient! I really liked the fact that you can see in real time your X-ray and they do take photos of the teeth to show you which one have problems! The waiting area is very nice also. I would definitely recommend them.

My first impression is that I am so glad to find Timber Dental. They were able to help me with an emergency. I called and was in the chair within 30 minutes. Who else does that? What a great staff and I have no doubt that they will be able to help me. Finding a good dentist is not easy and I am very happy to find Dr. Andrei. My wife went to Dr. Andrei and was so impressed, that I had to check it out. We love Timber Dental.

Last time I saw a dentist was for a tooth extraction. Dr. Andrei rejuvenated my faith in dentists. He made me comfortable and explained everything that was going on and what was needed to address the issues. Explained in detail how to avoid more damage and improve my oral health. Will not go to anyone else! A++++
