A missing tooth or multiple teeth can cause your smile to change in both shape and function. The solution to this problem was a partial or denture to replace what was missing. In some cases, these occasional ill-fitting removable dentures and partials also proved detrimental to dental health. What’s worse is patients lose the ability to enjoy life due to lack of confidence and being unable to enjoy the same menu of foods they once did.

Dental implants are a viable, durable solution designed to mimic natural teeth both in function and appeal. McKee Family Dentistry in Loveland is pleased to offer patients dental implants to help replace what may be missing from their smiles. If implant therapy fits your personal and dental needs, we will work in tandem with one of our trusted dental surgeons to place, design, and perfect your dental implants.

Dental implants are an ideal way to replace your teeth because they function almost identically as a natural tooth. Made up of an implant post and a porcelain crown, implants integrate with your jawbone to act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. Implant posts can even be used to attach dentures, holding them securely and comfortably in place.


Dental implants offer patients a completely different experience than dentures, partial dentures, and bridges. Removable appliances such as dentures and partial dentures can:

  • Change your speech
  • Change the way you eat
  • Rest on your soft gum tissue
  • Cover the roof of your mouth or the backs of your bottom teeth
  • Allow for food to become easily lodged
  • Often require adhesives to hold in place

Implants FEEL, FUNCTION and FIT almost identically to natural teeth.

Whether they hold a single tooth or a full set of dentures, dental implants give you the freedom to eat whatever you like, and smile and speak with confidence.

Dental implants let you —

be you.
