Dental implants are the ideal way to replace lost teeth. From the front of the mouth, where they are most visible, to the back, where they provide stability to chew a full variety of foods, implants can help you recapture a beautiful and healthy smile. Unlike bridges or removable dentures, which sit on top of the gums, dental implants are placed under the gums. The “tooth” placed on an implant appears life-like, because it comes through the gums just like the original did – it’s like growing a new tooth! Implants can be used to replace any number of lost teeth. Even people with no teeth can benefit from implants, because they can replace their dentures with teeth that don’t move around when they talk, and don’t need to be taken out at night. Because we handle the entire process from implant placement to crown fabrication, there’s no need to be referred to another office. Call for a no-obligation implant consultation today.
A Solution For Loose, Slipping Dentures
Are you wearing dentures that slip, tilt, or wander, and you would prefer to have the strength and stability of implants? You will be happy to know your dentures can be secured with dental implants. These provide you with full chewing ability, allowing for a complete and healthy diet. They also halt the progression of bone loss and keep your dentures stable in your mouth. Our experienced dental team can give you a great fit along with a great look.

Avoid Bone Loss
Your teeth stimulate the surrounding bone each and every time you chew. This retains the integrity of the bone. When a tooth is lost, the bone is not stimulated and shrinks away. A dental implant preserves this bone and can prevent bone loss and shrinkage of the gums, protecting the surrounding healthy teeth. Bridges and dentures do not provide this type of support and protection. This is a prominent concern as we continue to enjoy life longer and longer. Delaying replacement of your broken or missing teeth can not only result in unnecessary problems in your mouth, but can also limit the options to provide you a great-looking smile.
Perfectly Precise Implants
We are proud to be one of the first practices in the country to use Cone Beam™ digital imaging technology. Think of this as a three-dimensional X-ray that is FAR more accurate than traditional X-rays, takes much less time, and does all this with much less radiation exposure.
A great advantage of using ultra cone beam images when diagnosing patients and evaluating treatment options is the dentist's ability to clearly see the patient's anatomy in 3-D, instead of flat, two-dimensional images. This leads to much greater accuracy for all dental treatment, especially implant placement and any oral surgeries.
