Dental Implants

What is a Dental Implant?

Are you missing teeth or wearing old, uncomfortable dentures? Do metal bridges compromise the appearance of your smile? Dental Implants might be a great option for you.

Dental Implants are a stronger, more natural-looking alternative to bridges, dentures and partials.

The process to determine whether implants are right for you starts with a Free Initial Implant Consultation with our Implant Specialists. Our Implant Specialists can tell you what customized plan would fit best for your needs.

Here are a few questions to consider on deciding whether to pursue a dental implant:

What is a Dental Implant?

A man-made tooth root made of titanium or ceramic.

What is the process for a Dental Implant?

  • An implant is placed in the jaw and is left to heal for a period.
  • Once the bone grows to the implant and the area has healed, the dentist will use an abutment that screws into the post and secure a handcrafted crown to the abutment.
  • If your case requires an implant-secured denture, partial or bridge, we will place it before you leave the office.

Why should I consider an implant?

  • By replacing not just the tooth but the root as well, dental implants closely mimic your natural teeth.
  • Patients enjoy restored function, speech and confidence.
  • If maintained properly with regular checkups, cleanings and daily oral hygiene, dental implants can last a lifetime.

What is the advantage of an implant over a removable denture or a bridge?

  • Implants don’t rest on the gum line which can cause irritation and discomfort.
  • An implant acts as an anchor to best replace the function of your teeth.
  • An Implant looks and feels like a natural  tooth.
  • Allows you to chew and speak just like you did before.
