Dental emergencies indeed come in all shapes and sizes. At Centre Family Dentistry, we always tell our patients that if they have a dental problem that concerns them, it involves us too.

Common Dental Emergency Issues

When you're in pain or have another problem, our goal is to provide prompt treatment to relieve your pain and restore your oral health. Here are some common issues that our emergency dentist in Fort Collins addresses routinely:

  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Lost dental crowns or fillings
  • Toothaches and cavities
  • Bleeding gums
  • Infected or abscessed teeth
  • Food stuck between teeth
  • Knocked-out teeth

If you should encounter any of these problems, call Dr. Jordan Humbert for emergency dental treatment. Some of these are less urgent than others—such as a chipped tooth—but we want to address any sudden dental concern you have promptly.

Dental Emergency Procedures in Fort Collins

At Centre Family Dentistry, we offer a wide array of emergency dental services designed to get you back to feeling better again:

  • Replace lost fillings or crowns
  • Periodontal treatment
  • Emergency dental filling
  • Emergency root canals
  • Emergency tooth extractions
  • Replace knocked-out teeth

Toothaches are not normal. Putting off treatment allows whatever damage there is to worsen and harm your oral health. Delaying treatment can turn what would have been a simple dental filling into a root canal or even tooth extraction.  

Dental Emergency Appointments at Centre Family Dentistry

If you have any of the issues listed above or another you don’t see here, don’t hesitate to call our Fort Collins dental office at (970) 407-1001. We’ll make your dental emergency a priority and make sure you get the prompt treatment and relief you need.

Dr. Jordan Humbert is a general dentist in Fort Collins who handles all the foundational dental care you need. Dental exams and cleanings, tooth fillings, crowns and bridges, root canals, emergency dentistry, and more, are all services we offer to maintain your family’s healthy smiles.

We'll Work toward Your Dream Smile

Maintaining excellent oral health is a team effort with us working together and our general dentist in the lead. We start with preventive dentistry, including comprehensive dental exams and tooth cleanings at least twice a year. Gum disease is a widespread problem that affects nearly half of all US adults over age 40. Prevention goes a long way toward protecting your overall health and well-being by keeping gum disease and cavities under control.

Prevention is ideal and helps you avoid many dental problems. But we won’t judge you if you’ve fallen behind with your oral health care. We love working with patients who have decided to take the necessary steps to improve their oral health and enhance their smiles!

Tooth fillings, crowns and bridges, root canals, and more, are all services your Fort Collins dentist offers to restore health and beauty to your smile.

All-on-Four Dental Implants

Living with missing teeth can be frustrating when you don't feel comfortable talking or smiling in front of other people, or if you encounter difficulties chewing and eating your food. 

If you are missing most or all of your teeth, or if you are currently wearing a denture that doesn't fit and causes discomfort, All-on-4 dental implants in Fort Collins may be an excellent option for you.

The All-on-4 procedure utilizes four carefully placed dental implants designed to snap into a denture that replaces an entire arch of missing teeth.

Benefits of Dental Implants over Dentures

Dental implants not only provide a more secure and stable fit than traditional dentures, but they also protect the jawbone from the deterioration that occurs over time from wearing a traditional denture. It is this bone loss that can cause your denture to slip, or not fit as comfortably as when you got it.

If you are currently dealing with the frustrations of an ill-fitting denture, All-on-4 dental implants can provide a solution for a worry-free fit you can rely on. If you are considering dentures as a tooth replacement option, dental implants in Fort Collins can provide better longevity for your investment by protecting the health of your bone.

All-On-4 Dental Implants in Fort Collins

To learn more about the All-on-4 procedure, contact Centre Family Dentistry today at (970) 407-1001 to schedule a commitment-free consultation with Dr. Jordan Humbert.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Would you like a whiter, brighter smile but worry that teeth whitening might damage your tooth enamel? Dr. Humbert wants to reassure you that, when performed by a trained dentist or hygienist, teeth whitening in Fort Collins will not damage your teeth or gums.

One reason that people get into trouble with teeth whitening is that they choose store-bought brands and go through the whitening process without supervision. This leaves them vulnerable to over-whitening, which can cause tooth enamel to thin.

Choosing the Right Dentist for Teeth Whitening

Choosing a cosmetic dentist to perform your teeth whitening is a wise choice for several reasons. Since Dr. Humbert already knows your oral health history, he can adjust the potency of the whitening agent to meet your needs. If you opt for in-office teeth whitening in Fort Collins, we will take steps to ensure that your teeth and gums are protected during the procedure to avoid sensitivity.

If you go with a professional take-home whitening kit, you will receive a whitening gel in a strength that’s customized for your needs. We will also give you a custom whitening tray that we create from impressions of your teeth for a snug fit that keeps the gel on your teeth and away from your gums.

Are You Ready for Teeth Whitening in Fort Collins, CO?

Our patients are always thrilled with the results they can achieve with professional teeth whitening. If you are ready to take your smile to the next level, call Centre Family Dentistry to schedule an appointment.

Dental bonding is a procedure often used to repair your cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth. Dental bonding may also be used to fix spacing problems between your teeth. 

With dental bonding, the dentist uses a composite resin to fill the gaps and spaces in your mouth and restore your teeth, improving your smile and bite. The process is fast, usually only taking between 30 minutes and an hour. However, if you are having multiple teeth bonded, it could take longer. 

Before performing the dental bonding procedure on your tooth, your dentist will choose the precise shade of composite resin that will match the natural color of your teeth. That way, the dental bonding blends in, completing and complementing your natural smile.

Dental bonding is a great option for restoring teeth both cosmetically and for better overall oral health. Whether you need a chipped tooth repaired or a discolored tooth matched to your other teeth, we can help you with dental bonding. Dental bonding is one of the most inexpensive cosmetic dental procedures available.

Dental bonding is a simple, quick, and affordable cosmetic dental procedure. At Centre Family Dentistry, Dr. Jordan Humbert can help you achieve a beautiful smile with dental bonding. If you are in need of dental bonding, please reach out to us. We will be happy to answer any of your questions!

Dental Crowns & Bridges

A dental bridge relies on healthy teeth at each end of your smile gap to anchor it with crowns. A bridge fills in the open space with a prosthetic tooth. Because the healthy teeth that anchor the crowns have to be altered so the crowns will fit properly, a bridge is considered a permanent restoration.

Your dental bridge is customized with durable ceramic porcelain designed to complement your smile. Many patients who don't want to have implant surgery or who don't have enough healthy bone to support a dental implant find a dental bridge to be an excellent solution for one or more missing teeth. With good home care and routine dental checkups and teeth cleanings, your dental bridge can last anywhere from 12 to 15 years. 

Other Tooth Replacement Options

If you're living with compromised or missing teeth, a dental bridge is only one of your tooth replacement options. Fort Collins dentist Dr. Jordan Humbert is happy to meet with and evaluate your teeth so he can review all of your choices with you.

Dental Bridges in Fort Collins

You don't have to live with the discomfort or embarrassment of tooth loss any longer. Contact Centre Family Dentistry today at (970) 407-1001 to learn more about your tooth replacement options in Fort Collins, CO.

Dental Implants

Lost teeth can be a fact of life. They may result from sports injuries or another kind of accident with the potential to knock out a tooth. Sometimes a tooth is fractured when you bite down on a hard item. Your tooth could even break off due to advanced decay, and that trauma could be painful in itself.

Missing Teeth Should Never Be Ignored

From the moment a tooth goes missing, potential problems are inevitable. These issues range from an infection in the empty socket to issues with chewing, and if the initial challenges go unsolved, the long-term impacts are worse. Your teeth rely on each other for support, so over time, the teeth around the gap may shift and lose alignment.

Getting A Dental Implant in Fort Collins, CO 

The process of getting an implant involves a few steps linked with minor and short-lived discomfort. First, when we surgically install the implant base, we will numb the area to mitigate any pain you may suffer. 

The truth is, tolerating missing teeth may be a more emotionally painful proposition than getting a dental implant to replace the missing teeth. So give Centre Family Dentistry a call to start the process and a long-term solution to dental pain.

In a perfect world, your natural teeth would last for a lifetime, sparing you the need for artificial tooth restorations. But in the real world, teeth fall victim to many damaging agents, from chronic conditions like progressive tooth decay and infection to acute events like accidents or injuries. But regardless of the reason, patients you should always address a missing tooth.

Dental Implants in Fort Collins, CO

One modern solution for a lost tooth is a dental implant. This restoration consists of an implant screw similar to your tooth’s root and joined with your jawbone. Connected to the implant screw is the visible portion of the artificial tooth, usually a porcelain ceramic crown, indistinguishable from the natural tooth it replaces.

Your Implant’s Lifespan

The life of a new dental implant will be influenced by how well you maintain it. Like a natural tooth, you will brush and floss it. With proper care, the crown portion of your implant can last for many years.

However, if you injure your crown, one benefit of a dental implant is that your damaged crown may be removed and replaced by a new restoration attached to the implant screw. So unlike a natural tooth, the artificial root may resist problems giving you strong odds that it will serve as a foundation for new restorations for the rest of your life.

If this sounds good to you, call the team at Centre Family Dental to set up a consultation today.

If you’ve chosen to have a missing tooth replaced by a dental implant, the procedure has multiple steps. The overall treatment time could be several weeks to several months, depending on specific measures. 

The first step in any implant procedure is the consultation with Centre Family Dentistry in Ft Collins, CO, to ensure an implant is an appropriate restoration. We will assess things like jawbone thickness, and the shape and color of your implant restoration will need to fit where the missing tooth once was.

Placement of Your Dental Implant in Fort Collins, CO

This step is the surgical portion of the process and where Dr. Humbert implants the replacement root into your jaw. The procedure involves between one and several hours, depending on your unique situation.

Healing and Fusing to the Bone

For several weeks after your implant’s base installation, your jawbone will heal around the implant and allow it to integrate. This process is called osseointegration and is what makes the entire restoration more stable and more substantial.

Final Step: Attaching the Restoration

Depending on the number of teeth we replace with implants, your dentist will design and manufacture the restoration. Then when osseointegration is complete, Dr. Humbert will add the restoration to the implant screw.

If you are ready to replace one or more missing teeth, the Centre Family Dentistry team is prepared to start today. Give our Ft Collins, CO office a call to set up your consultation.

When you lose a tooth in any area of your mouth, your best bet is to replace it as soon as possible. Dr. Jordan Humbert recommends dental implants for our Fort Collins, CO patients who are looking for the most reliable, long-term tooth replacement solution available.

Effects of Tooth Loss on Your Oral Health

Several things happen when you lose a tooth:

  • First, the jaw bone that supported the lost tooth starts to shrink, affects the stability of surrounding teeth, and leads to additional tooth loss.
  • All your teeth rely on each other for support. After tooth loss, adjacent teeth can start to tilt or drift into the void, causing crowding and misalignment.
  • Your teeth and jaws support and fill out your cheeks and lips to maintain a youthful appearance. When you lose one or more teeth, these contours change, and the result is a hollow or sunken-in appearance that makes you look older than you are.

Dental Implants Prevent These Problems

Dental bridges and full and partial dentures are and continue to be excellent choices for tooth replacement. But dental implants at our Fort Collins dental office are the only option that prevents all of these problems from occurring after tooth loss.

A dental implant is a tiny titanium screw that Dr. Humbert surgically positions in your jaw. As it heals, it forms a permanent bond with bone and tissue around it. Dr. Jordan then attaches a crown, bridge, or denture to restore function and appearance, and the result is a replacement tooth that is as close as modern dentistry can bring you to a natural tooth. 

Call Us with Your Dental Implant Questions

Dr. Humbert has studied dental implantology extensively so he can bring this leading-edge tooth replacement to his Fort Collins, CO patients. Using state-of-the-art 3-D cone beam imaging, he can perform the entire implant placement procedure here at Centre Family Dentistry.

General Dentistry

Dental cleanings are vital in maintaining good oral health. In addition to adhering to a good oral hygiene routine at home, you should be visiting your dentist’s office for a professional dental cleaning at least once every six months.

With bi-yearly cleanings, we can monitor your oral health, watching closely for any developing dental problems. If we notice an issue during an exam and cleaning, we will take care of it promptly, which helps prevent more serious dental problems down the line. 

If you visit your dentist regularly, you will enjoy better oral health and save money in the long run. With early treatment, we can use more conservative treatment methods, preventing the need for invasive, expensive dental treatments later on. 

For serious oral health issues, such as gum disease, an increase in your office visits may be recommended until the problem is resolved.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers a thin tooth-shaped covers that go over teeth, creating the appearance of straight and healthy teeth. Since porcelain doesn't stain as easily as enamel, the result is long-lasting, and with care and regular dental visits, veneers can last many years before needing to be replaced.

What Are Porcelain Veneers Good For?

Veneers are a good option for patients who want to create the appearance of straight and pearly white teeth. Patients who have damaged, discolored, or misshapen teeth can get a veneer that will create the appearance of a bright and healthy tooth shaped to the patient's mouth so that it looks natural.

A veneer can be applied to a single tooth to improve its appearance or a line of visible teeth to create a whole new smile.

To set a veneer on a tooth, the dentist will have to remove a thin layer of enamel from the tooth. Because of this, veneers are permanent and require a commitment to care.

Sedation Dentistry

At Centre Family Dentistry, we understand the visiting the dentist is not at the top of everyone's list and that procedures and sometimes even cleanings can be anxiety-inducing experiences for some of our patients.

We are committed to creating the best dental experience possible, and apart from our friendly team and welcoming dental office, we help do that by offering sedation dentistry.

Sedation Dentistry Can Help

Using a light sedation method by administering nitrous oxide–commonly called laughing gas–we can ease our patients into a relaxed state that can make the dental experience much more pleasant. It will wear off in time for you to safely drive yourself home. 

Oral conscious sedation requires medication to induce a dreamy, relaxed state. Because the prescription is longer lasting, you will need a ride home from your appointment.

For some cases, we might also recommend deeper sedation through an IV injection. This heavier sedation will take longer to wear off, and the patient will need a ride home.

We don't want to let our patients' anxieties and fears prevent them from getting the dental treatment they need. 

Fort Collins, CO Sedation Dentistry 

If you have any more questions about sedation dentistry or how Dr. Humbert and his team at Centre Family Dentistry can help create a better dental experience for you, or if you are ready to schedule an appointment., please contact us.

Dental anxiety is very common, and unfortunately, it often prevents patients like you from seeking the dental care you need to maintain excellent oral health.

For this reason, we’re pleased to offer sedation dentistry at our Fort Collins, CO dental office. Because you have unique needs, we offer three types of dental sedation—nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and IV sedation.

Nitrous Oxide for Your Comfort

Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is a mild form of sedation that you inhale, and its effects are meant to last only for the duration of your procedure. Nitrous is perfect for patients with mild to moderate anxiety or those who want to relax comfortably during their appointment.

Oral Sedation for Deeper Relaxation

If you feel like you could benefit from more profound relaxation, we may recommend oral sedation. Dr. Humbert will prescribe a calming medication that you should take about an hour before your appointment. When you get to our office with the help of a friend or family member, you’ll already be in a relaxed state and ready for your appointment.

IV Sedation at Our Dental Office

Does deeply-rooted anxiety prevent you from following through with dental care? IV sedation at our Fort Collins dental office is delivered by a trained anesthesia team who will monitor you carefully. With IV sedation, you’ll remain in a dreamlike state during your procedure and have little to no memory of what happened.

Call to Schedule an Appointment

Dr. Humbert and our entire dental care team are trained to administer sedation to ensure your safety. If you'd like more details, visit our sedation dentistry page or call Centre Family Dentistry at (970) 407-1001 to learn more about our sedation dentistry options and to schedule an appointment.
