Dental ImplantsAdvanced Tooth Replacements

Dental implants are an advanced tooth replacement option for individuals who have lost teeth or are going to loose teeth.  With a proven long-term track record dental implants have become the standard for replacing missing teeth and stabilizing dentures.  Dental implants are an excellent option for replacing teeth and restoring your smile.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts placed in the upper and/or lower jaw to support a missing tooth or teeth. Dental implants replace missing tooth roots, they provide the strength and stability required to support chewing, while also stimulating the jaw bone to prevent bone loss.  They can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or even add support and retention to dentures.
