Dental Implants

Missing teeth can make it difficult to enjoy simple pleasures like eating and speaking. Dental implants can restore your smile, allowing you to eat the foods you love and speak confidently again.

Whether you're missing one tooth or all your teeth, Drs. Mark Link and Jean Link in Centennial, CO, can help patients smile again.

What Are Dental Implants?

Implants are prosthetic tooth roots made of durable titanium that support restorations to replace your missing natural teeth. But implants do more than just restore your smile. When you are missing teeth, your jawbone loses the stimulation the tooth roots once provided, and can begin to deteriorate. Dental implants are the only restorative dentistry treatment that can stimilate the jawbone to stop and prevent bone atrophy after teeth are lost.

The True Value of Implants

"Essentially, the goal is to have a tooth replacement that no one knows is a tooth replacement." Dr. Mark Link

Dental Implants Make It Possible To Have a Complete Smile

Thanks to advances in dentistry, you can have a stable, stunning smile again. And, because dental implants can last decades — or even a lifetime — this investment is well worth it. Not to mention, dental implants have health benefits, unlike traditional options such as dentures.

What Types of Restorations Do Implants Support?

Depending on your level of tooth loss,
dental implants can support a variety of restorations.

Dental Crowns

For patients missing a single tooth, we can pair a dental crown with a dental implant to fill in the gap and restore your smile.

dental bridge

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges and implants are a great option for patients who are missing a few consecutive teeth. 



If you are missing most or all of your teeth, dental implants and dentures can restore one or both dental arches.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a landmark dentistry treatment to address tooth loss, but not everyone is a candidate. You may be a candidate if:

You are in otherwise good oral health

If you suffer from issues such as tooth decay, tooth damage, or gum disease, this must be addressed before you can undergo implant placement. This is to ensure a healthy foundation for your implants and restorations. 

You have sufficient bone tissue

You must have sufficient jawbone tissue for dental implant placement. To receive traditional implants, those with extensive bone loss will first need bone grafting to ensure there is sufficient bone to support the implants. Options like All-on-4® (an entire denture on the upper or lower arch placed on four specially-designed implants) can allow certain patients to receive implants without a preliminary bone graft.

You are in good overall health

Our dentists will examine your health records to determine if implant placement is safe. If you have diabetes, for example, the condition must be under control in order to safely undergo the procedure.

Suffering From Existing Bone Loss? We Can Help

If you've been told you do not qualify for traditional dental implants due to bone loss, our dentists offer the All-on-4® and All-on-6 implant techniques. This method uses four to six strategically placed implants to maximize the existing bone material. If your bone loss is extensive, our dentists also perform bone grafting and sinus lifts to help you qualify for the amazing benefits dental implants provide. 

We are proud to offer free second opinion consults to help you make the best decision for your oral health.

Dental Implant Treatment

Placing traditional dental implants involves these fundamental steps:

"If having teeth for a lifetime means you have to take, say, 3-6 months to get there, it's certainly worth that investment of time." Dr. Mark Link
"If having teeth for a lifetime means you have to take, say, 3-6 months to get there, it's certainly worth that investment of time." Dr. Mark Link


You will first have a consultation with one of our dentists. During this appointment, they will examine your mouth and discuss your oral and overall health history. Be sure to inform your dentist about any health conditions or medications you are taking. 

Preparatory Treatment

If you need preparatory treatment such as periodontal care, bone grafting, or tooth extraction, this will be done first. Once you are healed, your implants can be placed.

Socket Shield Technique

For patients who still have their tooth or tooth roots, we can bolster their results using a socket shield technique. Basically, we will keep a modest portion of your tooth's root in place. This allows for improved bone health.

Implant Placement

Your dentist will first numb the area. Our Centennial dental practice also offers sedation options to ensure you are comfortable during treatment. Your dentist will then make a small incision in the gum tissue and insert the implants. 


You will be given time to heal. Over the course of three to six months, the titanium implants will fuse to the jawbone in a process called osseointegration.

Abutment Placement

Once you are healed, your dentist will attach abutments to the implants. The abutments connect your denture, crown, or bridge to the implants.


After the abutment is placed, your dentist will take impressions of your mouth in order to craft your custom restoration. Once your restoration is completed, your dentist will secure it to the implant.

Worried About the Cost of Implants?

While most dental insurance plans do not cover the cost of dental implants or abutments, they often cover other costs associated with your implant treatment, such as your restoration or preparatory treatments to restore gum health. 

We do not want financial barriers to prevent patients from experiencing the amazing benefits of implants. To help make dental implant treatment more accessible and affordable, our Centennial dental practice accepts financing to break the cost of your treatment into affordable monthly payments.
