Dental Implants

You’ve lost a tooth, or perhaps several. Chewing is difficult, and smiling is embarrassing. Tooth loss is more common than you may realize. In fact, 178 million Americans are missing at least one permanent tooth. Once a tooth is extracted, it will never grow back. In fact, without the structure of a tooth in place, over time your jawbone shrinks and your face looks aged. Dental Implants are the solution for renewing your smile, your chewing ability, and your quality of life. A Dental Implant is a small titanium screw secured into your jawbone, and the screw serves as a replacement for the root portion of your missing tooth. This anchors the crown, bridge, or denture replacing your tooth.

All The Benefits

Benefit 1

A Dental Implant replaces your tooth and protect your jawbone from shrinking. This in turn prevents your face from looking older.

Benefit 2

Dental Implants help you chew your food more easily. Without an implant, bits of food end up getting stuck in the gap or stabbing your gums.

Benefit 3

The average lifespan of your Dental Implant is forever. It is rare that an implant needs to be replaced.

Benefit 4

Dental Implants look and feel like natural teeth. They help you talk and smile with comfort and confidence.

Benefit 5

Dental Implants have no loose parts. They are a permanent solution and are stable and comfortable.

Benefit 6

Dental Implants look and feel like natural teeth. You likely won’t even remember which tooth is the implant.

The Process


The dentist x-rays your mouth to determine if your jaw bone is adequate to hold the titanium posts.


The dentist takes impressions of your mouth to provide measurements for a crown or bridge.


The team conducts meticulous planning to ensure the best results.


Using local anesthetic and a sedative, the dentist surgically inserts the implant into your jawbone.


The dentist attaches an abutment to the implant which will hold the crown, bridge, or denture.


Over the course of 2-6 months your implant fuses to your bone prior to completing the procedure.


The dentist cements or screws the replacement tooth onto the abutment to permanently hold it in place.


You enjoy your newly repaired smile and the benefits it has in your life.


Frequently Asked Questions


Why do people prefer Dental Implants as a solution for missing teeth?

Permanence. Dental Implants are a completely permanent solution. The post is made of biocompatible titanium, which allows it to fuse with your bone and anchor your replacement tooth. Aesthetics. Dental Implants provide a natural-looking replacement for missing teeth. It is unlikely that anyone will be able to differentiate between your real teeth and your Implant. Comfort. Once your Dental Implant heals, it feels like a regular tooth.

Are Dental Implants safe?

Yes. Dental Implants have been used for over 50 years and are completely safe. However, as with any medical procedure, complications are a possibility. Dental Implants are sophisticated dental devices and your dentist needs to strategize carefully prior to placement. It is imperative that you choose a highly-skilled dentist to place your Implant. This minimizes the risk of complications and ensures proper handling of any issues that may arise.

Who is a candidate for Dental Implants?

Most adults. If you do not have enough bone or gum tissue for the Implant, you may require a gum graft but the procedure is still possible. It is also possible that a candidate will have a failed implant which failed to integrate with the jawbone. However, with proper oral hygiene and care that is an unlikely outcome.

How do I care for my Dental Implants?

The same way you care for your regular teeth. Make sure to brush, floss, and visit your dentist regularly. Dental Implants will never decay. However, without good oral hygiene the gum tissue surrounding them can become infected. With proper care, you can expect your Dental Implant to last for decades.
