LARSON FAMILY DENTISTRY DOES DENTAL IMPLANTS IN LONGMONT, COLORADO.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that a dentist places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. It can be a plastic or metal anchor that is inserted into a jawbone to provide permanent support for a crown, fixed bridge, or denture when the bone itself would provide insufficient support. About eight weeks after a tooth or teeth are removed, the anchor is screwed into a hole that has been drilled into the jaw. New bone is allowed to grow around and fuse with the anchor for up to 6 months before the crown, bridge, or denture is attached.
Most insurance is accepted.
