Tooth Replacement Options

Patients with damaged or missing teeth have several tooth replacement options to choose from, ranging from traditional removable dentures to a fixed prosthesis using dental implants.

If you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth, there are plenty of tooth replacement options available today to address your oral health needs. Boulder Oral Surgery offers dental implant-based tooth restorations such as dental implants and the All-on-4 treatment concept. We also understand that every patient requires personalized attention and care, and therefore, the right tooth replacement option will be unique to you. We want you to be well-informed of your options, so you can feel good about whatever tooth replacement solution you choose.

Dental Implants


Many patients enjoy their dental implants because they are secure, permanent, and natural-looking. There are three parts that make up a dental implant: the implant post, the abutment, and the crown. An oral surgeon will place the post into the jaw bone, which will fuse with the surrounding bone over a period of several weeks. Once the healing phase is complete, the crown and connecting abutment are placed.

Dr. Nedbalski, Dr. Chai, and Dr. Luter offer dental implant-based restorations at both of our offices in Boulder and Longmont, Colorado. You can discover more about the dental implant process by visiting our Dental Implants and Dental Implants FAQ pages.

All-on-4® Treatment Concept


A dental implant-based tooth restoration method, the All-on-4 treatment concept creates a brand-new smile for patients who are experiencing severe tooth loss and decay by replacing an entire upper or lower arch of teeth at once.

Dr. Nedbalski, Dr. Chai, and Dr. Luter are and offer dental implant-based restorations in Boulder and Longmont, including the All-on-4 treatment concept. Visit our All-on-4 page to learn more.

Traditional Dental Bridges


Many patients who are missing one or more teeth between healthy teeth select a bridge as their tooth replacement option. Your dentist can place a bridge, which may be fixed or removable. To place the bridge, the healthy teeth that support it may need to be ground down.

Dentures (Full or Partial)


Traditional dentures remain a popular tooth replacement solution for patients because they are convenient to wear and remove while offering improvement of oral health and function without surgical treatment.

It is important to keep in mind that dentures may require adjustments from your dentist over time. Surgical correction may be necessary if these adjustments fail to make wearing your dentures comfortable. If this happens, your dentist can refer you to an oral surgeon, such as Dr. Nedbalski, Dr. Chai, or Dr. Luter, for pre-prosthetic surgery. Pre-prosthetic surgery prepares your mouth to wear your dentures with optimal comfort. Visit our Pre-Prosthetic Surgery page to learn more.
