Your Smile Will Look Great and Perform Well With Dental Implants in Fort Collins

If you wear dentures but wish you didn’t, dental implants in Fort Collins will give you replacement teeth that look, feel, and perform more like your natural teeth. Compared to dentures, implants are:

  • Comfortable – It’s embarrassing if dentures slip while you’re eating or talking. It also creates uncomfortable friction on your gums. You won’t have to worry about slippage with implants.
  • Long Lasting – Made of titanium, implants should last a lifetime.
  • Easy to Maintain – Depending on the kind of restoration you choose for your implants, you’ll just brush and floss your teeth the way you’ve always done. Plus, you won’t need adjustments to maintain the fit. No more denture relinings!
  • Better for Your Oral Health – Unlike dentures, implants keep your jaw strong and healthy. That’s because implants stimulate the bone when you chew, just like natural tooth roots do.
  • Versatile – You can replace any number of teeth with implants, from one tooth to all of them.

Trust an Experienced Implant Dentist With Your Procedure

You’ll want to get your dental implants procedure from an experienced implant dentist. In the 1980s Dr. Kollar was one of the first general dentists in the U.S. to receive training from a Swedish company formed to commercialize techniques created by Per-Ingvar Brånemark, the scientist who created the methods now widely used to place implants. Since then, Dr. Kollar has performed countless procedures.

Unlike some dentists, he both places and restores implants, so you won’t have to visit an outside doctor for any part of your procedure. He’s so confident in the quality of his work, he offers a money-back guarantee. If your implants fail, the cost of your procedure will be refunded! You have nothing to lose – and so much to gain – from getting implants.

Choose From Many Kinds of Dental Implants

Thanks to his expertise, Dr. Kollar can perform many dental implant procedures. You can get:

  • Single-Tooth Replacement – Replace one tooth with a dental crown attached to an implant.
  • Multi-Tooth Replacement – You can replace several missing teeth with a fixed bridge anchored by implants. Doing so removes the need to alter healthy teeth to support a bridge.
  • Mini Dental Implants – You may be able to receive mini dental implants, which are smaller and thus require a less invasive placement procedure than full-size implants. Mini implants can work even if you’ve been told your jaw isn’t strong enough to support larger implants.
  • Full Arch of Replacement Teeth – Dr. Kollar can perform an All-on-4® procedure, attaching a complete arch of replacement teeth to four implants, or an All-on-6, a similar procedure that uses six implants.
Q Are Root Canals As Bad As They Say?

Root canals are still the bogeyman of dentistry because there are some myths that people keep spreading. Today’s root canals are quick and painless. In fact, the procedure actually relieves pain because it removes the nerve that is sending pain signals. Many patients report that the procedure is no worse than having a filling. If you have concerns about a root canal, give us a call. We’ll be happy to give the truth about root canals.

Q Are Amalgam (Silver) Fillings Safe?

Amalgam (silver) fillings have been used for many decades. Some studies have raised concerns that exposure to minute particles of mercury contained in the fillings and/or vapor from mercury can cause health problems. However, the American Dental Association, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the FDA, the World Health Organization, and many other groups support the use of amalgam fillings. To avoid any possible health concerns and for a more natural-looking smile, we use tooth fillings made of tooth-colored composite.

Q How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Improve the Appearance of My Smile?

We offer many cosmetic dental procedures to improve your teeth and enhance your smile. Depending on your needs, your treatment plan may range from restoring a single tooth to having a complete smile makeover. Dr. Mark Kollar has been transforming smiles for many years and can help you decide which treatments are right for your smile.

Q How Can I Tell If I Have Gingivitis or Periodontitis (Gum Disease)?

Unlike a cavity, which often hurts, you can have periodontal (gum) disease without even realizing it. You should see us right away if you notice symptoms such as bright red gums, puffy gums, chronic bad breath, teeth that feel loose, or gums that bleed. We can eliminate gum disease with a deep cleaning treatment.

Q How Often Should I Brush and Floss?

We recommend brushing at least twice a day, for two minutes each time, and flossing at least once a day. We can show you proper techniques for both brushing and flossing during your dental exams.

Q How Often Should I Have a Dental Exam and Cleaning?

We recommend visiting our office every six months for a dental exam and cleaning. If you’ve been diagnosed with gum disease, we may recommend more frequent visits until the disease is completely under control.

Q What Are My Options for Missing Teeth?

To replace missing teeth, your options at our office include dental implants and a dental bridge. Implants can be restored with a crown, a bridge, or even dentures. No matter which restoration you choose, your smile will feel, look, and function much like it did before you lost teeth. You can choose a removable bridge or a fixed bridge. We can attach a fixed bridge to implants, so we won’t need to drill into healthy tooth structure.

Q What Are Porcelain Veneers and How Can They Improve My Smile?

Porcelain veneers are extremely thin shells of tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom-made to cover the front surfaces of your teeth. They are very durable and will not stain, making them an effective solution for patients who want to restore or enhance their smile.

Q What Can Be Done About Old, Unattractive, or Discolored Fillings?

Dr. Kollar will check your fillings to see if they are defective and need replacement. If you simply want to replace metal fillings with more natural-looking restorations, he can help you decide which ones should be replaced first and which replacement options will work best for you. Depending on the size of your fillings and where they are located, your choices may include composite fillings, porcelain dental veneers, inlays, onlays, or dental crowns.

Q What Can I Do About Stained or Discolored Teeth?

Teeth whitening treatments are a great option for many people. We offer a choice of a whitening treatment in our office, using a pressurized powder that is tough on stains but easy on your teeth, or an at-home whitening kit with professional-strength bleach and custom-made whitening trays. You can cover stains that don’t respond well to whitening treatments with dental veneers, a tooth bonding treatment, or dental crowns.

Q What Do Heart Disease and Other Medical Conditions Have to Do With Gum Disease?

Gum disease (periodontal disease) is the leading cause of lost teeth among adults. Since it’s a bacterial infection, it can also affect the health of your body. Numerous studies have found a correlation between gum disease and major medical conditions. Conditions linked to gum disease include heart disease, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and preterm childbirth.

Q What Should I Do If a Tooth Is Knocked Out?

It’s possible to reimplant teeth that have been knocked out, especially if you can get to our office within 30 minutes. Be sure to handle the tooth only by the crown (white part), not by its roots. If you can, put the tooth back in its socket immediately. Gently bite down on gauze or a wet tea bag to keep it in place. It’s best to use saliva or milk for storage if you need to transport it in a container. Consider buying a “Save-A-Tooth” storage container, which can be purchased at many drugstores, and keeping it as part of a first aid kit.

Q What Should I Do If I Have Bad Breath?

Bad breath (halitosis) has many causes. You can often get rid of bad breath by improving your oral hygiene habits and making lifestyle changes such as stopping smoking and drinking more water. If your bad breath is due to gum disease, we’ll treat it with a deep cleaning procedure called scaling and root planing.

Q When Are Sealants Recommended?

Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that cover and protect the chewing surfaces of your teeth. The sealants create a smooth protective barrier that makes it easier to clean teeth and helps keep them cavity-free. They are especially useful for areas that are difficult to reach with a toothbrush, such as back teeth. Dr. Kollar is likely to suggest sealants if you have dry mouth or other conditions that make you susceptible to cavities.

Q Why Is It Important to Use Dental Floss?

Brushing your teeth removes food particles, plaque, and bacteria from your tooth surfaces – but your brush can’t reach the spaces in between the teeth. Thus, it’s important to floss every day to clean between your teeth and under your gumline. Flossing not only helps clean these spaces, but it also discourages plaque from accumulating, which helps prevent damage to your gums, teeth, and bone.

Q Why Straighten Teeth?

It’s easier to chew, bite, and speak more effectively with straight teeth than with crooked teeth. In addition, a straight smile looks more attractive and gives you more self-confidence. It also makes it easier to keep teeth healthy, since they should be easier to brush and floss. At Five Star Dental FC, you can straighten teeth with Invisalign, a system that uses clear plastic aligners instead of metal braces.
