Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They allow you to live the way you want to, confidently.
We offer a wide array of dental implant services, ranging from single tooth replacements to full mouth replacements. Dental implants are titanium screws which are placed in the jaw bone in order to provide anchorage for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants look, chew and function like natural teeth. However, they do not decay and do not have nerves to cause pain like natural teeth. Implant fixtures are made of a titanium alloy that has been researched in great depth to ensure that it is both non-toxic and biocompatible. During the healing process, your jaw bone will actually fuse with your implant. This process is referred to as "osseointegration."

Alternatives to Implants
Dental bridges were considered the gold standard for replacing missing teeth in the early 90's. This is a non-surgical option that entails drilling on the adjacent teeth in order to cement a splinted bridge for replacing the tooth that is missing. This option could result in resorption of the jaw bone and it could result in cavities underneath the bridge.
Removable Partial Dentures
Removable partial dentures are typically the most affordable option for replacing missing teeth. After any completely unusable teeth are removed, your dentist can fabricate a removable appliance that replaces the missing tooth or teeth. These appliances must be removed at night for cleaning and they may require adjustments over time.
