• Restoring your smile with dental implants:

    Dental implants are the new standard of care for tooth replacement. Dental implants can restore your smile and provide function while maintaining your bone and facial structure.

    Why consider dental implants

    Losing one or more of your teeth creates a gap in your smile, affects your ability to chew properly, and can alter your diet and nutrition. While these are all serious issues, did you know that tooth loss also leads to bone loss?

    Dental implant therapy

    When a tooth is lost, the jawbone beneath it begins to shrink (atrophy), and becomes brittle from lack of exercise. Not only does losing a tooth affect your smile, it also changes the shape of your face causing you to look prematurely aged.

    Benefits of dental implants

    • Replaces missing teeth
    • Maintains bone
    • Maintains your youthful appearance
    • Restores your natural smile

    About dental implants

    Dental implants are the new standard of care for tooth replacement. They are secured into the bone to provide long term support for crowns and dentures.

    Individual tooth options

    Individual missing teeth can be replaced by dental implants without altering your healthy adjacent teeth. Once dental implants are placed, posts (or abutments) are attached, providing support for your final crowns.

    • Full chewing ability
    • Preserve healthy teeth and jawbone
    • Maintains bone

    Traditional crown & bridge

    • Attractive smile
    • Grinds down healthy teeth
    • May lead to bone loss under bridge
    • Greater risk for cavities and tooth failure

    Untreated missing teeth

    • Unattractive smile
    • Loss of chewing ability
    • May lead to bone loss

    Multiple teeth options

    If all upper or lower teeth are missing, multiple dental implants may be used to support a denture. Due to bone loss, traditional dentures may become loose and unstable over time. Dental implant supported dentures and maintain bone so dentures remain stable in your mouth.
