Dental Implants

Missing teeth can take the pleasure out of smiling, laughing, eating, and even having a conversation with friends. If you are tired of the difficulty, discomfort, pain, and embarrassment – dental implants may be your best option.

What are implants?

Dental implants are the understructure, like abutments on a bridge, which hold the replacement teeth. Implants are a tool that can be used for a variety of applications. They provide superior stability, convenience, and preservation of your jawbone.

  • A single tooth can be replaced by a single implant, topped with a beautiful porcelain crown.
  • For a series of missing teeth, three or four implants can be placed, supporting several replacement teeth.
  • If all of the teeth in an arch are missing, six or eight implants can be placed and connected, creating the support structure for an entire new set of teeth.
  • Denture wearers can enjoy better retention and eliminate adhesives with only two to four implants. The denture snaps in and out for easy cleaning, but remains stable when eating, smiling, and speaking.
  • Implant retention is an option available for our Immediate Dentures.

I hate the dentist like a lot of people do but this place makes it painless and easy. They have a lot of the newest equipment, they accept my insurance and I can get an appointment when I need it without a hassle.
