A revolutionary tooth replacement option, dental implants can restore one tooth, several teeth, or even an entire upper or lower arch of teeth at once. Patients are selecting dental implants as their tooth replacement option of choice for their durability, permanence, and natural-looking appearance.
Listen to our dental implant patients share their experience.
Dental implants are a popular option for patients looking to restore the look, feel, and function of natural teeth. Whether a patient is missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire arch of teeth, dental implants can be an ideal option for many successful candidates. Our oral surgeons at Boulder Oral Surgery specialize in dental implant-based tooth restorations and can formulate a treatment plan with your oral health, preferences, and aesthetics in mind.

During the surgical placement of dental implants, your oral surgeon will place the dental implant post into the jaw bone. This post is made of medical-grade titanium and is ideal for fusing with the surrounding bone for a secure foundation through a process called osseointegration. While the surgical procedure of placing the dental implants can be relatively brief — as little as 30 minutes for a single implant — it can take several weeks for the implant to successfully and completely fuse with the jaw bone.
When you come to Boulder Oral Surgery for the placement of your dental implants, our oral surgeons will make every effort to ensure you feel safe, comfortable, and informed throughout your treatment. Dr. Nedbalski, Dr. Chai, and Dr. Luter specialize in dental implant-based tooth restorations.

There are several options to consider when looking to replace missing teeth. Dentures and bridges are quick solutions that do not require surgery. However, they do not prevent jaw bone loss, and many patients find them inconvenient to clean or eat with. Removable dentures must be taken out during meals, which can lead to feelings of embarrassment.
Dental implants are the ideal solution for missing teeth. Many patients who wear full or partial dentures or dental bridges turn to dental implants for long-lasting tooth replacement. All-on-4® treatment concept is ideal for patients who wear full dentures who would like a functional, natural-looking alternative. Dental implants are secure and prevent jaw bone loss, unlike dentures or bridges. If you are looking for a denture replacement in Boulder or Longmont, CO, contact our office today for a consultation.
Most patients who are healthy enough to receive a minor dental procedure are healthy enough to receive dental implants. This is great news for the many patients who may not qualify to receive other tooth replacement treatments. For some patients, an additional procedure called a bone graft is necessary before receiving a dental implant due to the loss of bone around the gums and jaw. You can learn more about bone grafting treatment by visiting our Bone Grafting page.
Caring for dental implants that have healed is easy. Just brush, floss, and see your dentist regularly!
The time it will take you to recover from your dental implant placement surgery may vary from someone else receiving the same procedure. On average, it takes several weeks for the titanium implant post to completely integrate with the bone — between three and six months. Your age, the condition of your jaw, lifestyle, and more will all play a role in how well — and how fast — you heal.
Dental implants are considered an investment in your oral health and tend to cost more than other options for tooth replacement. At Boulder Oral Surgery, your treatment plan will be unique to you — your insurance coverage, the number of dental implants to be placed, whether other treatments are necessary before receiving dental implants, and more will all factor into the final cost of your treatment. You can schedule an appointment with Dr. Nedbalski, Dr. Chai, or Dr. Luter to learn more about dental implants, your treatment, and overall cost by contacting our practice.
At Boulder Oral Surgery, our surgeons and their team will make every effort to ensure you feel safe and comfortable throughout your procedure.
