Missing permanent teeth can be embarrassing, but it no longer has to deter you from showing off a beautiful smile in Fort Collins! Dental implants are small posts placed beneath the gum to work as the roots of missing teeth. A crown (also called an artificial tooth or prosthesis), is then fitted to match your teeth and mouth structure to improve your smile. An implant can replace one tooth or multiple teeth for a full, healthy smile that looks and feels perfectly natural. Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel and function like natural teeth. A person who has lost teeth regains their ability to eat virtually anything, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. Patients with dental implants can smile with full confidence.

The human jaw has developed over tens of thousands of years, and at this point in our development we find that the typical human jaw is unable to accommodate the size and the number of the teeth we have. Also called “third molars”, wisdom teeth develop among the majority of the adult population, and normally appear among people in their late teens or early twenties. Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt in our mouths, and in the vast majority of cases there is simply not enough room in our jaw to accommodate them. If you have healthy gums and your wisdom teeth are properly aligned, they may not need to be removed. However, this is not going to be the case for most people.

Impacted teeth are unerupted teeth that remain below the surface of the gum and sometimes bone rather than erupting into an exposed position within the mouth. This typically occurs when an unerupted tooth is wedged against another tooth directed so that it cannot erupt normally by some obstruction. The teeth that most commonly become impacted are the wisdom teeth. They are the last to develop, beginning to form when a person is about nine years old, but not breaking through the gum tissue until the late teens or early twenties. By this time, the jaws have stopped growing and may be too small to accommodate these four additional teeth. As the wisdom teeth continue to move, one or more may become impacted, either by running into the teeth next to them or becoming blocked within the jawbone or gum tissue. An impacted tooth can cause further dental problems, including infection of the gums, displacement of other teeth, or decay. At least one wisdom tooth becomes impacted in nine out of every ten people in the US.
