Dental Implants

Today, dental implants are the standard of care to replace missing teeth. If you have lost a tooth, a few teeth or all of your teeth, dental implants can be the way to bring your smile back. The implant is designed to function as the root of a tooth, meaning it is placed entirely in the jaw bone, just as your tooth’s natural root is. The top portion of the implant can be a single tooth, a part of a bridge helping to replace multiple teeth, or a component designed to help secure a denture or partial denture. Dental implants do not need to be attached to adjacent teeth, saving your other teeth, which would have needed to be filed down in order to have a bridge attached. Dental implants are made of titanium, one of the most bio-compatible materials on the market, which means even if you have a metal allergy you are still likely to be an excellent candidate for

implants. Your teeth provide you with more than just the ability

to chew; they also affect your speech, comfort, and self-

confidence. Those teeth can be replaced with dental implants,

and your smile can look beautiful and natural again. To schedule
