Dental Impants in Longmont

Dental Implants

Missing teeth can leave you feeling like you're missing out on things you used to enjoy such as talking, eating, and even just smiling. This can leave you feeling embarrassed about the state of your dental health. Replacing missing teeth is important to your general health and to the health of your other teeth as well. Not only do you lose chewing ability when a tooth is lost, but unreplaced teeth can cause other teeth to be lost, tipped or crowded and create subsequent problems. Dr. Howell can help you replace your missing teeth with dental implants, giving you a beautiful and fully functioning smile.

Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth and are designed to blend in with your other teeth. They are an excellent long-term option for restoring your smile. The development and use of implants are one of the biggest advances in dentistry in the past 30 years. Dental implants are made up of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body. They are posts that are surgically placed in your jaw where they function as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth.

We have a periodontist in our practice who places the implant. After healing we can place a porcelain crown to restore the area to perfect form and function.

The Advantages of Dental Implants are:

  1. Natural look and comfortable fit. Dental implants are designed to look, feel, and function like your natural teeth. In addition, implants give you the confidence to smile, eat, and engage in social activities without worrying about how they look or if your dentures will fall out.

  2. Long-lasting and reliable. With proper care and maintenance, implants last as long as conventional restorations on teeth, with predictable outcomes.

  3. High success rate. Well planned and cared for dental implants are generally better than other teeth replacement options. As implant technology and techniques improve, so should their success rate. People in good health have the best chance for successful implants.

  4. Improved ability to eat and chew. Dental implants are anchored in your jaw bone just like natural teeth. Over time they will help preserve the jaw bone and significantly reduce bone resorption. Replacing missing teeth with implants allow you to chew your food better and speak more clearly.

  5. Improved facial and bone features. Dental implants preserve natural tooth tissue by avoiding the need to cut down adjacent teeth for conventional bridgework. They also will preserve bone and significantly reduce bone resorption and deterioration that results in loss of jawbone height. Dental implants also help restore your jawbone structure because they reduce the load on the remaining oral structures/teeth and preserve natural tooth tissue and reduce bone resorption and deterioration that results in loss of jawbone height

Your teeth were designed to last a lifetime, but when they don't, we have implants.
