Dental implants are an option for people who have lost teeth due to injury, periodontal disease, or other reasons. Dental implants are a great way to improve your smile. They can be used to replace missing teeth, fill in gaps, and even help support dentures.
Dr. Kurt Knechtel of Longmont Dental in Colorado is a skilled implant dentist who can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
Dental implants can give you back your smile if you’re missing one or more teeth. Dental implants are made of titanium, a biocompatible material accepted by the body. The implants are placed in the jawbone; over time, they fuse to the bone, creating a solid foundation for the new teeth.
Implants are small titanium posts inserted into the jaw’s bone and allowed to heal for several months. Once the implants have bonded with the bone, artificial teeth are placed on top of the implants.
Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth. They are strong and durable and can last a lifetime with proper care. Dr. Knechtel uses the latest technology and techniques to ensure that your implants are placed correctly and look natural.
Dental implants can also be used to fill in gaps in your smile. Gaps can make your smile look uneven and unfinished if you have one or more missing teeth. By placing implants in the gaps, Dr. Knechtel of Longmont Dental can give you a fuller, more complete smile.
In addition to improving the appearance of your smile, dental implants can also help support dentures. If you have loose-fitting dentures, implants can provide a more secure fit. This can improve your ability to eat and speak and make your dentures more comfortable to wear.
