Ask Us About Denture-Stabilization Implants

Boulder County tooth implants

The condition of your teeth has a big impact on your quality of life. Denture wearers understand this all too well. The path from a healthy mouth to a toothless mouth is downhill. Denture implants from Boulder County Smiles in Lafayette CO can make an enormous difference.

The Drawbacks of Dentures

While dentures are better than having no teeth at all, they certainly come with drawbacks. They can irritate gums and make breathing, eating, tasting food, talking, and laughing difficult. And they’re not a once-and-your-done solution for missing teeth. As the jaw shrinks, they call for relines.

Stop The Progression

But there is reason for hope! Dental implant technology can improve the quality of life for people who have been wearing traditional dentures. To a certain extent, implants stop the downhill progression of declining oral health due to tooth loss.

Dental implants can be used to replace one tooth, to anchor overdentures. Mini dental implants (also called denture-stabilization implants) allow us to securely an appliance that won’t slip or irritate gums. Small titanium posts (the actual implants) are inserted into the jawbone, and in time fuse with the surrounding bone, creating a secure base for an overdenture.

Restore Chewing Ability

Did you know that some denture patients retain only ten percent of their chewing capacity? Denture implants can curb bone recession and restore near-normal chewing ability. Improved chewing function with implants can result in better nutrition and overall physical health and well-being.

Denture implants are among the services available at Boulder County Smiles in Lafayette CO. We provide general and family dentistry, and have sedation options. Call to schedule an appointment today.

Missing Teeth in Boulder? Don’t Miss Out On A Beautiful Smile

Lafayette cosmetic dentistry

If you have chipped or cracked teeth, or are missing one or more of your teeth, cosmetic and restorative dentistry from Boulder County Smiles may be just what you need. We offer multiple ways for you to keep (or regain) your ability to eat, drink, speak, laugh, and smile with confidence.

Dental Veneers
Porcelain veneers offer a relatively cost-effective approach to cosmetic adjustments – uneven color, size, or shape. They are thin ceramic shells bonded to the front of the teeth. They upgrade unsightly, but structurally sound teeth.

Dental Implant
A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically implanted into the patient’s jaw. A tooth restoration goes on top of the post. Because they are physically attached, they prevent bone loss. Best of all, they look and function like natural teeth.

Dentures
For patients who have lost most or all of their natural teeth, there are several options in dentures. Traditional dentures are removable, and rest on top of the gums. Implant-supported dentures are anchored to dental implants and are more stable than traditional dentures.
