By imitating an entire natural tooth, from the root up, dental implants offer a prosthetic that closely mimics nature. The result? Dental implant patients enjoy restored function, which allows a healthy diet of hard-to-chew foods. Speech may also improve. Research has proven that dental implants last longer and have a higher success rate than any other alternative known to dentistry. Strong and secure, your new smile will boost your confidence, enhance your appearance, and improve your quality of life.
Depending on the amount of viable bone in your jaw, your dental implant procedure could take anywhere from a couple of weeks to a couple of months. Each implant post, that acts as the tooth’s root, needs a stable bone environment. If your bone is not strong enough, it can be replaced with a bone graft using bone from another part of your body, from an animal’s body, or a synthetic bone. Once the tooth has been removed, Dr. Montoya will place the prosthetic root into the hole. It may take a few weeks for your body to adjust to the new prosthetic. In the meantime, we can give you a temporary tooth to wear on top of the post. Once your body has adjusted to the post, we will place the permanent crown. After the procedure, you will be amazed at the types of foods you can eat with a dental implant. Not to mention, how beautiful your smile will look!
Now patients who are missing teeth have a strong, beautiful alternative to bridges, partials, or full dentures. Dental implants and the mini implants procedure will improve your smile and your lifestyle. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth because of a titanium anchor attached to the jawbone. Dental implants and mini implants can also anchor bridges, partials, or full dentures to eliminate slipping. If you are interested in replacing one or missing teeth or a full-mouth restoration, call Dr. Montoya at Boulder Dental Designs in Boulder, CO. Dr. John Montoya and his team are committed to improving smiles.
