Our Restorative Treatments
If you’re an otherwise healthy individual but missing teeth, you may be an ideal candidate for dental implants. Beyond the artistic skill necessary to successfully complete the cosmetic aspect, you need a skilled Golden, CO dentist who masters both the placement and surgical components of a dental implant procedure.
Dr. Sprout explains, “As a general dentist with extensive, well-rounded training, I take things from beginning to end. I start with the restorative end in mind, and I’m able to guide my patients through every step.”
Not many dentists have the training and expertise necessary to perform every step of a dental implant procedure confidently. However, Dr. Sprout has completed an extensive fellowship at the Medical College of Georgia that fully covered all aspects of implant prosthetics and implant surgery, giving him more training than most specialists.
Dental extractions are simpler than you think. Here at Genesee Dental Group, we only extract teeth as a last resort, and in all extraction cases, we will take careful measures to make the process a comfortable and painless experience.
A dental extraction may be necessary if you have:
- Extreme tooth decay
- A severely fractured tooth
- Wisdom teeth complications
At Genesee Dental Group, your health and comfort are our top concerns, especially during dental extractions. Your Golden restorative dentistry expert Dr. Sprout provides various options to ensure your extraction is pain-free:
- Nitrous sedation
- Conscious sedation
- Anesthetic without sedation
Full Mouth Rehabilitation
You may be a candidate for full mouth rehabilitation if you suffer from frequent migraine headaches, ringing in the ears, or have short, worn down, broken, or missing teeth. Golden, CO dentist Dr. Sprout is highly trained in all aspects of full mouth rehabilitation.
“With my training and expertise, I can definitely do something for patients that will lead to increased health and increased comfort, in addition to an enhanced look. Your full mouth rehabilitation will absolutely be a life-changing process.”– Dr. Christopher Sprout
Missing teeth aren’t the only reason patients seek full mouth rehabilitation. You’d be surprised how many signs and symptoms connected to problems with muscles in the jaw, head, and neck can be corrected by full mouth rehabilitation. Call us today to set up a complimentary consultation.
Full mouth rehabilitation goes beyond just repairing teeth. It also involves making sure that your joints, muscles, and teeth are all working together in harmony, functioning as a whole, with no pain. Ask us if our Golden restorative dentistry treatments are a good fit for you.

Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are conservative alternatives to crowns and traditional dental fillings in Golden, CO.
By keeping more of your natural tooth intact, inlays and onlays strengthen and preserve tooth structure, ultimately leading to greater oral health.
Benefits of inlays and onlays include:
- There’s no metal involved
- Tooth structure is saved
- The results are long lasting
- Cosmetic techniques make each tooth look lifelike and natural
Dr. Sprout explains: “In the past, we only had the option of cutting down the tooth and placing a metal-based crown retained by cement. But now, using the latest advances in dentistry, there’s no longer a need to cut down the healthy tooth; we can restore the tooth and retain near original strength.”
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Effective sleep apnea treatment not only gives you the ability to have a better night’s sleep, but it will also allow you to function better and can even save your life!
Sleep apnea is a serious condition where intermittent blockage at the back of the throat inhibits your ability to inhale sufficient amounts of oxygen while you sleep. This highly disruptive disorder has various symptoms:
- Decrease in energy
- Waking up tired
- Difficulties staying awake throughout the day
- Trouble concentrating
- Weight gain
- Even death
Golden, CO dentist Dr. Sprout has dedicated many hours to continuing training and education on the best ways to treat victims of sleep apnea. Fortunately, there are many preventative measures that can be taken when sleep apnea is caught in its early stages. Your dentist should be looking for signs and symptoms of sleep apnea well before it becomes a threat to your health.
Dr. Sprout personalizes each patient’s treatment according to their individual needs, generally creating customized oral appliances that increase your air intake while you sleep.
If you experience excruciating headaches or consistent pain in your head or neck muscles, you may be suffering from a TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder. There are many problems that can occur because of these jaw joint disorders. Symptoms can include:
- Neck aches
- Ringing in the ears
- Numbness in the neck or arms
If you have worn down teeth or find yourself clenching and grinding your teeth, these may also be indicative of jaw joint dysfunction. TMJ treatment with Dr. Sprout in Golden, CO is gaining popularity due to his incredible success rate. Dr. Sprout has spent hundreds of hours treating various jaw joint issues and dysfunctions.
Dr. Sprout explains, “Ninety percent of the pain comes from the muscles, not necessarily the joint or the bones. The main goal is getting the joint and the muscles to work together, so there is harmony within the system.”
He begins treatment by relaxing the agitated muscles using a TENS machine and uses computer-generated software to examine how the muscles function. He then uses principles of restorative dentistry, making certain the muscles and jaw are in the correct position. By getting a patient’s bite just right, the teeth, muscles, and joints can all be synchronized in perfect harmony.
