We Provide Dental Implants to Improve the Health and Stability of Your Smile
If you are missing one or more teeth and want a stable and natural-feeling replacement solution, dental implants are a great option. Traditional restorations only address the visible portion of absent teeth while dental implants replace the whole tooth, including the root.
The ability to replicate a tooth root and its function is essential to preserving the bone mass of the jaw. Otherwise, missing teeth can cause the jaw bone to shrink in a process known as resorption. These changes to the jaw can lead to a prematurely aged appearance and further decline of your overall oral health.

You have Options
Dental implants replace individual or multiple teeth, and our dental office has the implant solution to meet your needs. We can restore your smile with one of these implant-supported prosthetics:
Crowns – We use a crown attached to a single implant post to replace an individual tooth.
Bridges – If you are missing a short row of teeth, a minimum of two implant posts are used to secure a bridge.
Complete or Partial Dentures – When most or all teeth are gone, a full or partial denture is secured using four to six implants. This option adds stability to traditional dentures with the assistance of two or more implants and reduces movement during chewing and talking.
What to Expect When Receiving Dental Implants
The implant posts are made of a bio-compatible material. They are surgically inserted through the gums and into the jaw where they are allowed time to fuse with the surrounding bone.
During the healing process, which lasts several weeks, you will be provided with a temporary restoration and instructed on how best to care for yourself as you heal.
Our dentist monitors you closely to ensure the best outcome. When you are ready for your final prosthetic, we obtain a new impression of your bite, then develop your restoration. Your crown, bridge, or denture is color matched to your adjacent teeth for a natural looking smile.
