If you’re suffering the embarrassment of missing teeth or the discomfort of ill-fitting dentures, you’re missing more than teeth—you’re missing out on the rewards of a healthy, beautiful smile. While conventional bridges or removable dentures have long been the standard for replacing missing teeth, dental implants may be a preferred alternative for you to consider.
Surgically placed below the gums, dental implants are fused directly into your jaw bone. They serve as a secure and permanent anchor for replacement teeth, such as crowns, bridges or complete dentures. By fully integrating into your natural bone and gums, they become a part of your anatomy, providing the most natural form, feel and function possible.
There are many benefits of implants: they can dramatically improve your ability to chew; they can restore the natural line of your jaw, filling out your face that may have otherwise appear sunken from missing teeth; and they are much more convenient than traditional bridges or dentures because they do not require nightly removal, overnight soaking or messy adhesives.
Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. An evaluation by our dental team will help determine whether you are a good candidate. In fact, our unique team approach to dentistry ensures that each phase of your treatment will be carried out collaboratively by our team of general dentists, oral surgeons and implant specialists, right here in the convenience of our comprehensive facility.
