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 restoration starting at $900 per implant, with no need for referrals. Get started with a consultation.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots. 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 or teeth from the root to the chewing surface. In addition to restoring form and function, dental implants are also the only restorative dentistry procedure that can stop and prevent the jawbone deterioration that occurs following tooth loss. 

Implants are most often made of durable titanium or zirconia. While Dr. Rota and our Colorado Springs team most often recommend titanium implants, zirconia implants can be a great option for certain patients. We're more than happy to explain your options online or during a consultation.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Implants offer a variety of 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.

"Immense knowledge and experience." 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.  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.

Dental Implants: A Landmark in Dentistry

Dr. Rota places dental implants for qualifying patients who want to replace missing teeth. These titanium prosthetic tooth roots provide support for custom-made restorations. Thanks to our in-office milling technology, we can place a lifelike temporary restoration immediately after you receive your implants.

Also Offering Mini Dental Implants

Mini dental implants are about half the diameter of traditional implants. A mini implant is often a great way to replace one smaller tooth with a less invasive surgery. They open up more possibilities for implant patients and can make treatment easier in these ways:

  • Mini dental implants are small enough to be appropriate for patients who have experienced some degree of bone loss.
  • The size of mini implants can make placement surgery quicker and less invasive.
  • Many patients are kept comfortable during placement with local anesthesia alone.
  • Because the treatment site is smaller, recovery tends to be quicker.

Wondering if mini implants are appropriate for your specific case? Reach out to Dr. Rota to talk about your options.

Ceramic implants are becoming a widely known alternative to traditional implants made of titanium. Dr. Rota can provide this solution, but they are not right for everyone. During a consultation, he can examine your smile and discuss your goals to determine whether this or another implant dentistry solution is the best fit for your needs.

I cannot recommend Rota enough! I haven’t been to a dentist in 10 years and had quite a bit of anxiety over the treatment I required. They went a above and beyond to set me at ease before and during the procedure. I don’t remember hardly a thing! And I love that. Haha! Seriously, if you need a new dental team, you will LOVE these people.

Best dental care I have ever had. Dr. Rota is extremely skilled and compassionate. I am so happy I found Dr. Rota. I had difficulty with upper denture, but other dentists gave me "it's the best we can do". When I met with Dr. Rota he knew right away he could make it better. And he did. He is a perfectionist and over achiever, and his desire to give you the best possible outcome is above and beyond. I can't thank him enough. ❤

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

Dental implants at our Colorado Springs dental practice typically cost $900–$2,000. 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.

The Dental Implant Treatment Process

Dr. Rota offers implant-supported options to restore smiles affected by any degree of tooth loss.
Dr. Rota offers implant-supported options to restore smiles affected by any degree of tooth loss.


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 abutments. Abutments are connector pieces that secure restorations to implants.


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.

Implants Can Change a Smile Request a Consultation to See What They Can Do for You

It can be hard to picture the difference dental implants can make until you see proof for yourself. Here's one patient case our Colorado Springs team completed, for example:
patient with crooked, unhealthy teeth
Before Dental Implants Bill had struggled with his smile for a long time. His teeth were crooked, worn, and discolored. When he visited our Colorado Springs office, Dr. Rota determined dental implants would be the best choice to restore his smile.
patient after dental implants with beautiful smile
After Dental Implants Bill's teeth were replaced with a custom denture that looks and works just like the real thing. Bill's treatment took years off his appearance and transformed his self-confidence.
If you're missing teeth or dealing with issues like Bill was facing, we'd love to give you a picture of what implants can do for your own smile. Book a consultation with Dr. Rota in Colorado Springs, CO, by contacting us online or calling:

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?


Titanium or zirconia dental implants and abutments will last you for life. The restorations they support will need to be repaired or replaced after a certain point, and we can handle that here at our Colorado Springs, CO, dental office using your existing scans, but the actual dental implants are permanent.

Need Extractions Before Implant Placement? Visit Dr. Rota for Advanced Care and Better Results

Dr. Rota offers treatment options you aren't likely to find at many other offices around Colorado Springs. One of the most important is platelet-rich plasma treatment, or PRP, for socket preservation.

Many implant patients need teeth removed before their implants and restorations can be placed. This leaves empty tooth sockets, which require time to heal. In the PRP healing process, Dr. Rota takes a small amount of the patient's blood and processes it to isolate the platelets, or the part of the blood that promotes healing and growth. The result is a very thin film that our dentist places over the treatment site to speed recovery and better prepare the site for implant placement.

"10/10 would recommend."

"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. 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."
