Missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious. They can also give plaque and bacteria extra places to collect, allow your other teeth to move out of alignment, and make it more difficult for you to eat and speak effectively. The answer to your problems may be dental implants in Grand Junction, Colorado. Our dentist, Dr. Bob Johnson, will be happy to meet with you for a consultation to help you decide if dental implants are the right choice for you. To make an appointment at Horizon Dental Care, call 970-245-3633 today.

Dental implants are permanent, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or all of the teeth. The dental implant post, which is a medical grade screw made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth either immediately or after a period of healing. This replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. A period of healing is then often required to allow the bone to begin to fuse with the biocompatible post. This is called Osseointegration.

Following this healing period, our dentist will place the dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post. Depending on which teeth are missing and your personal dental needs, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, complete denture, a hybrid denture or partial denture. Each dental implant restoration is custom made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.
