Dental Implants

Did you know that a missing tooth can dramatically impact your health, as well as the look of your smile? A tooth lost to accident, injury, or disease can put your at higher risk for additional oral health issues, including the shifting of remaining teeth, gum disease, jawbone atrophy, and eventually, additional tooth loss. Dental implants provide an innovative solution that closely mimics nature, returning function and beauty.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a small titanium post implanted in the jaw. The bone fuses with the implant as it heals, which typically takes 6 to 8 months. After the healing period, we top the post with a handcrafted crown designed to match your existing teeth. Dental implants can also anchor a bridge, partial denture, or full denture for a secure and confident smile.

Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

Because dental implants are placed in the jaw bone, you'll need adequate bone mass to anchor the post. Good candidates should also be able to undergo minor oral surgery. Diligent oral hygiene is imperative to the long-term success of the implant.
