Implants

Teeth that look and feel just like your own

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support.

Dental implants feel so natural; you may forget you ever lost a tooth.

What are the advantages?

Since dental implants integrate into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and dentures. No one will ever know that you have a replacement tooth.

Dental implants don't sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth because neighboring teeth are not altered to support the implant. More of your own teeth are left untouched, a significant long-term benefit to your oral health.

Are implants reliable?

Dental implants will allow you to once again speak and eat with comfort and confidence. They are secure and offer freedom from the clicks and wobbles of dentures. Implants are considered an excellent option for tooth replacement.
