Like The Real Thing: Dental Implants

Dental implants from Boulder County Smiles in Lafayette are the most lifelike tooth replacement options available: so lifelike that some patients forget they’re even there.

First, though, let’s clarify a point. The term “dental implants” is commonly used to refer to replacement teeth. Even dentists use it that way sometimes. But technically, a dental implant is a titanium post, more like an artificial tooth root than an artificial tooth.

Rock Solid Implants

It’s the titanium post – the dental implant – that supports one or more artificial teeth. The post is surgically placed in the jaw and within a few months, fuses with the bone. At that point it is a rock-solid foundation for a replacement tooth.

In addition to providing normal biting and chewing power, dental implants also prevent the bone loss that commonly occurs when a tooth and its root are missing.
