Dental Implants

Dental implants help create a smile you can be confident about!

Are you missing one or more teeth?  Would you like to restore your ability to eat, speak, and chew, comfortably? If so your doctor may recommend a dental implant. Dental implants are permanent, stable tooth replacements that are commonly used to replace one missing tooth, but if you have several missing teeth you may still be a candidate. Implants provide you with a replacement tooth that is easy to clean, maintains your bone health, and looks very realistic.

How They Work:  A small titanium screw is surgically placed into the upper or lower jawbone where a tooth is missing. It serves as the tooth root and anchor for the final restoration that is placed over it. Then the dentist will allow that implant to heal, essentially fusing with the bone, to give the implant stability.  Finally, after the implant is determined to be stable, a restoration is fabricated.  Depending on which teeth are missing and your personal dental needs, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, complete denture, or partial denture. Replacing a missing tooth can restore your smile to optimal health, function, and appearance.
