Dental Implants

Missing teeth can make even simple things like eating and speaking difficult.

Dental implants paired with a custom restoration can give you a beautiful and functional smile once more. 

Dr. Joseph A. Rota in Colorado Springs, CO, provides implants starting at $900, with no need for referrals.

What Are Dental Implants?

Implants are artificial tooth roots made of durable titanium or zirconia. Your dentist surgically places them into the jawbone and then pairs them with a custom restoration (crown, bridge, or denture). The result completely replaces a lost natural tooth from the root to the chewing surface. 

Dental implants are also the only restorative dentistry procedure that can stop and prevent the jawbone deterioration that occurs following tooth loss. 

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Implants offer a variety of oral health benefits, such as:

Restored Oral Function

Even a single missing tooth can make it difficult to eat and speak properly. Implants paired with a crown, dental bridge, or denture can restore your oral function so you can chew and speak properly.

Bone Health Benefits

Dental implants provide the jawbone with the stimulation it once received from the tooth roots. This helps keep your jawbone healthy and can prevent the need for bone grafting later.

Boosted Self-Confidence

Missing teeth can be embarrassing to some, and it may cause them to hide their smile. Dental implants help restore the appearance of your smile, boosting your self-confidence.

Why Patients Love Our Colorado Springs Practice

Dr. Rota has immense knowledge and experience; I’ve been to many dentists around the world and no one was able to diagnose and treat like Dr. Rota. His practice offers very inexpensive dental insurance, I was shocked at how much care it covers for the low price (it pays for itself several times over). His staff is amazingly friendly and kind, and being in his clinic is lots of fun because of the massage chairs YAYYY and cute animals he has that help welcome patients. I recommend him to all my friends and family.

I've never felt more comfortable and cared for at a dentist office. Dr. Rota gives all options, pricing, and explains expected results for each. He really makes sure you have all the information you need to make a decision for yourself. All staff members are understanding and very friendly. When you walk in it feels like you've walked in to a nice family members home, you're always greeted with a smile and cookies. They are accommodating for individuals who have great fears of dentists. They have a "comfort menu" with items like chapstick, warm blanket, and many more choices. I love to visit with their office dogs while waiting for my appointment, and sometimes they even hang out during the appointment.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

Dental implants at our Colorado Springs dental practice start at $900. The overall cost of your implant treatment will depend on a few factors, such as:

The Number of Implants Needed

The number of implants and abutments needed will be a major factor in price. The more you need, the more it will cost.

The Need for Preparatory Treatments

If you have active gum disease or extensive jawbone deterioration, you may need preparatory treatment before your dental implants are placed. This will increase the overall cost of your implant treatment.

The Type of Restoration Needed

The type of restoration you need will also play a part in the total cost of your dental implant treatments. Dentures require more material and therefore will cost more than a dental crown.

Materials Used

Dental implants are made of titanium or zirconia depending on your needs. We also provide both traditional and mini dental implants. The type of implant used will influence the cost of your dental implant treatment.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

You may be a good candidate for implants if:

  1. You suffer from tooth loss.
  2. You are in otherwise good oral health.
  3. You have sufficient jawbone tissue.
  4. You're in good overall health.

Dental Implant Treatment

Day of Procedure


During your initial consultation at our Colorado Springs dental practice, your dentist will examine your mouth and discuss your oral health history to determine if implants are right for you. If you are a candidate, we will schedule your procedure.

Implant Placement

After numbing the area, your dentist will surgically place the implants into the jawbone. Our dentist also offers sedation options for patients who need an extra level of comfort care during this procedure. 


Over the next several weeks, you will be given time to heal and time to allow the implants to fuse to the jawbone in a process called osseointegration. This takes about three months. 

Abutment Placement

Once the area is healed, your dentist will place the abutment, which connects your restoration to the implant.


Impressions are taken of your mouth to craft your custom denture, dental crown, or dental bridge. Dr. Rota will color-match your restoration to any remaining natural teeth to ensure your new restoration looks as natural as possible. 

Restoration Placement

Once your custom restoration is finished, you will have an appointment for placement. Dr. Rota will secure your crown, bridge, or denture to the implant. You are then ready to enjoy your new smile.

Take a Closer Look at How Dental Implants Work

An implant is surgically placed directly into the jaw. Once healed, an abutment is added. This allows your dental crown, dental bridge, or denture to be attached to the implant. 

"10/10 would recommend this dental experience..."

"I ended up at Rota Dental after finding pictures of the dogs Otis and Macauley on the office website. I've had a severe dental phobia for years and I thought I would just need to muscle through it. When I sit in the chair, I get wrapped in warm blankets and they give me hand warmers and a heated eye pillow. If I'm nervous we can stop whenever I need to. I give Otis some goodbye snuggles and head home. 10/10 would recommend this dental experience featuring puppies and face massages. I've been running around town telling all my friends about how my dentist office is like a spa session and makes cleanings feel like something I WANT to do instead of a dreaded chore."
