Implants

Implants look, feel, and function just like a natural tooth. They can be a great option for replacing a missing tooth or teeth. Not only are they more comfortable than dentures and bridges but they help preserve jaw bone tissue. As part of our goal of providing the very best experience, we use state-of-the art techniques to promote faster healing of the implant surgical site.

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots embedded into the jaw, taking the place of one or more missing teeth. They are used to permanently anchor a prosthetic tooth, such as a crown, bridge or denture. Though they are not for everyone, most people who get dental implants experience a successful outcome that often lasts several decades.

Dental implants are always personalized to the functional and cosmetic needs of a patient. They are sized, shaped and color-matched for aesthetics. Implants are often chosen by patients seeking the most natural looking and feeling of tooth replacement options, primarily because dental implants are fixed and designed to match the surrounding teeth.

If you have one or more missing teeth or will soon be having a tooth extracted, you may be thinking about tooth replacement options. Most patients have a choice in this decision, usually comparing the benefits of implants versus other solutions, like dentures and bridges. Though not everyone will be a good candidate for dental implants, those who are will experience a more secure and long-lasting solution when choosing implants.

At our practice, we highly recommend dental implants whenever possible. There are many reasons for getting dental implants. In most cases, a patient has already lost one or more teeth due to tooth decay, periodontitis or some type of physical trauma. However, the ability to completely customize dental implants also makes them an option for people who desire the improved confidence that comes from a perfect smile. You may also wish to consider dental implants if you:

  • Have pain caused by malocclusion
  • Want the look and feel of a real tooth
  • Desire a low-maintenance routine
