Dental Implants

stock-16If you’re missing teeth, you’re probably eager to laugh, speak, and smile with confidence again. Dental implants create a foundation for beautiful and functional replacement teeth.

Dental implants are the latest and greatest tooth replacement method. They offer maximum security and comfort. Dental implants are the next-best-thing to natural teeth because with a dental crown, they perform the duties of both the tooth roots and above surface portion of the teeth.

Dental implants are small posts made of medical-grade titanium. Your dentist will surgically insert them into the jawbone. The posts will fuse with your jawbone over the course of a few months, and then begin to stimulate and strengthen the bone.

These replacement roots are restored with natural-looking restorations like dentures, dental crowns, or dental bridges. Although the dental implant process requires a few months, the discomfort is minimal and the payoff is enormous!

Eat Virtually Anything | Have you given up your favorite foods because of missing teeth? Many patients are forced to change their diets significantly because they are no longer able to chew properly. Dental implants will allow you to chew any food comfortably again.
Preserve your Appearance | Missing teeth lead to jawbone deterioration and a collapsed facial structure. Dental implants will lift and fortify your jawbone so that you can preserve your youthful look.
Secure your Smile | Dental implants are highly reliable because they are anchored into your jawbone. They will never shift or slide while you socialize, laugh, or eat!
