Dental Implants

A Permanent Solution

Dental implants are small titanium posts that are inserted directly into your jawbone, replacing the roots of missing teeth. They can provide firm and lasting support for single tooth restorations (crowns), multiple teeth restorations (bridges) or entire dentures. If you have lost a tooth or several teeth, nothing performs better than a successful dental implant.

Get Rid of Your Bridge or Denture!

Once fully integrated into your jawbone, a dental implant has none of the problems associated with bridges (wear of the neighboring teeth, pain and unnatural appearance) or dentures (tilting and shifting, pain, discomfort, periodic re-fittings and difficulty chewing). Implants look and feel almost identical to natural teeth!

Prevents Bone Loss

After a tooth is lost, the jawbone below it gradually loses strength and eventually recedes. Using implants is the only way to avoid this deterioration: implants connect the jawbone to the natural forces that keep it healthy and strong.

Cavity-Free

Dental implant restorations never get cavities, and gum disease is very rare in patients that follow the standard preventive care guidelines.

Dental implants, while relatively straightforward in concept, involve sophisticated aspects of the biology and physics of the mouth. Your chances of a successful implant increase dramatically if your caretaker has the necessary knowledge and experience to deal effectively with the complexities of the human mouth.

Ideal Esthetic and Functional Results

New technology offers a 3 dimensional picture of the jaw bone making it possible to plan the most ideal implant placement and achieve the most ideal esthetic and functional results. Whether a back molar is placed in the strongest bone for function or a front tooth is replaced to restore appearance and comfort, the 3D scan is critical for the ideal result.
