Your teeth are constantly being used over the years. Even with diligent dental care, they will suffer wear and tear during your lifetime. You may even lose teeth in your senior years due to age, injury, decay, or periodontal disease. Dental implants can restore your smile permanently, giving you back the joy, confidence, and self-esteem you lost when your teeth went missing. At Longmont Dental, we offer implants for seniors in Longmont, Colorado, and nearby communities.
Traditional dentures and bridges sit on your gums and are held in place by denture adhesive or clips attached to nearby teeth. At night, they’re removed and soaked in a special solution for cleaning.
In contrast, implants stay in your mouth permanently. The titanium implant screw is surgically placed in your jaw, where it integrates with your bone system to replace your tooth root. The integration process may take between four to six months to complete. Afterward, Dr. Kurt Knechtel will attach an abutment and dental crown, implant bridge, or implant-supported dentures to replace your lost teeth.
The titanium implant will keep your prosthetic teeth firmly in place when you talk, laugh, or eat so you can enjoy these activities naturally. Dr. Knechtel will customize your treatment to meet your unique restorative dental needs.
Implants aren’t the only restorative option for replacing lost teeth. They are, however, the most popular option due to their many benefits. Unlike traditional dentures and bridges, which need to be upgraded regularly, implants can last a lifetime, making them a one-time dental treatment. They can replace one missing tooth, multiple lost teeth, an entire arch, or all of your teeth, as needed. Implants are strong, safe, and reliable, with a 95% success rate for dental treatment.
