Crowns & Bridges

dental implant | Dentist broomfield coAt Peak Dental Health, we understand how challenging it can be to live with a failing or missing tooth. Eating might become uncomfortable or even painful, and interacting with other people might leave you feeling embarrassed. Dr. Nelson offers several solutions for replacing one or multiple missing teeth; the good news is that we can complete them from start to finish here at our Broomfield dental office.

Tooth-Replacement Options:

  • Dental Implants: These are considered the gold standard for single replacements since they replace both your tooth and root. Implants provide the look, feel, and function of a natural tooth because they are topped with a customized porcelain crown that is designed to complement your smile. They can also be used to support dental prosthetics like a bridge or denture for multiple tooth replacements.
  • Dental Bridges: A bridge is also a good choice as it restores function and aesthetics to your smile and protects against teeth shifting. Using a crown on either side as anchors, a bridge fills in the open space with one or more adjacent prosthetic teeth. 
  • Dentures and Partials: For those missing most or all of their teeth, a full or partial denture is an excellent solution. Full dentures restore an entire arch of teeth, while a partial denture replaces multiple teeth while allowing you to retain a large number of healthy natural teeth.

Dental Implants

Many of our Broomfield, CO patients who are experiencing tooth loss wonder about their best options for tooth replacement. Some are concerned about the cost of tooth replacement, especially when it comes to the investment required for dental implants.

Tooth Replacement Options

For tooth replacement, options such as dental bridges and dentures are more affordable initially—but in the long run, you might be better off spending your money on dental implants.

Not only are dental implants designed to last—a lifetime for most people—but they also provide the form and function that is closest to your natural tooth. Unlike dentures, which slip and slide while chewing and speaking, dental implants are integrated into your jawbone just like your tooth root is. You can bite into a juicy apple just like you always did—without worrying about your denture falling out.

In addition, your dental implant will never need to be adjusted—and it will likely never need to be replaced if you care for it properly. Over time, as the gums shrink, dentures will need to be re-fitted. They will also need to be replaced over the years.

Dental implants protect your bone health, so your gums will not shrink the way they do with dentures.

Emergency Dentistry

lady with dental fear | broomfield co dentistYou know it’s crucial to maintain excellent oral health, but something always prevents you from making or keeping dental appointments. That “something” is called dental anxiety, and it affects millions of people worldwide.

Customized Sedation Options

Fortunately, dentists like Dr. Brett Nelson recognize that dental anxiety is often an obstacle to maintaining a healthy smile. At Peak Dental Health, we’re pleased to offer customized sedation dentistry options for patients at our Bloomfield, CO dental office. 

We offer three types of sedation: nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and IV sedation. With three options to choose from, Dr. Nelson can customize a solution that’s right for you. He will take the time to learn what it is that makes you nervous and tailor your treatment accordingly.

We Help Nervous Patients Relax

Aside from sedation dentistry, we have many ways to help you relax during your appointments. From dental professionals who put you first, to modern technology and stress-reducing amenities, we’ll do what it takes to help you reach your goal of a healthy smile.

You don’t have to let dental anxiety put your oral health at risk. Call Peak Dental Health in Broomfield, CO to learn more about sedation dentistry.

Invisalign

Man smiling | Dentist Broomfield COMaybe you had orthodontic treatment as a child but forgot to wear your retainers and your teeth shifted. Or maybe orthodontic treatment wasn't in your family's budget. No matter what the case may be, it can be embarrassing living with misaligned teeth. However, many adults think that crooked teeth are better than having to endure months or years of wearing unsightly braces, so they've learned to live with a less-than-perfect smile.

Clear Aligners For Straight Teeth

Invisalign offers a different solution by using clear aligners instead of braces to move teeth into place. Aligners are comfortable to wear, with no concerns of brackets or wire poking you. They can also be easily removed for brushing, flossing, and eating meals, meaning you don't have to change your diet during treatment. Best of all, since aligners are made of clear plastic, they are virtually invisible, so no one will know you are straightening your teeth!

Certified Invisalign Provider in 80020

Dr. Nelson is a certified Invisalign provider in Broomfield, CO, and he can determine if Invisalign is the best treatment to help you reach your goals during an examination where he will take x-rays, photos, and models of your teeth. 3-D imaging is used to create your treatment plan with Invisalign, and it also allows you to see what your finished smile will look like before starting treatment. 

Don't live another day with crooked teeth! Contact Peak Dental Health to schedule your Invisalign consultation.
 

Preventive Dentistry

Woman smiling in dental chair | Dentist Broomfield COTreatment times vary significantly based on the type of procedure you are having done. Rest assured that at Peak Dental Health, we value your time and we strive to run our dental office effectively and efficiently to keep appointments on time. 

State-of-the-art technology

One way we do this is by using the latest dental technology. Much of our equipment such as the dental laser or rotary endodontic tools allow us to perform procedures like gum therapy and root canals more efficiently, not to mention they make the process much more comfortable for you, the patient. Dr. Nelson has invested in a lot of state-of-the-art equipment to help our office run more smoothly. 

Convenient Appointment Times

We understand that your schedule is hectic, so we also provide convenient appointment times in both the morning and early evening five days a week to make it easier to fit dentistry into your life.

Preventive Care in 80020

Another way we help you avoid complicated treatment procedures is by focusing on preventive care. Did you know that with consistent visits to Dr.Nelson every six months, you can actually prevent many treatment procedures such as root canals or crowns? Dr. Nelson screens for tooth decay and gum disease at every checkup, and early detection of these concerns allows you to treat them with less invasive procedures.

Sedation Dentistry

woman in dental chair | Dentist Broomfield COPatient comfort is a top priority at Peak Dental Health. Dr. Nelson has invested in some of the most advanced dental technology that is designed to make patients feel more comfortable. State-of-the-art equipment can also help procedures to proceed more efficiently, and even accelerate the healing process in many cases. He also uses dental anesthetics to ensure that you can't feel anything during your procedure, and he has equipment that allows him to deliver pain-free injections. 

Patients who may feel fearful about dental procedures or visiting the dental office can relax with options for sedation dentistry, depending on your needs.

Sedation Dentistry Options: 

  • Nitrous Oxide: Breathable gas that is the mildest form of sedation we offer. You can return to normal activities right away after a procedure with nitrous.
  • Oral Sedation: Deeper relaxation is delivered with a pill taken before your procedure — this sedation is for more complex treatment procedures or patients with moderate anxiety. You will need transportation arranged to and from our office if you use oral sedation.
  • IV Sedation: This is the deepest level of relaxation we offer. Medication is delivered intravenously and can be adjusted as needed throughout treatment. You will need transportation and have planned recovery time when you choose IV sedation.

Dr. Nelson is happy to discuss your concerns with you before any procedures to create a plan for you to receive the treatment you need in the manner that is most comfortable for you.
