Dental Implants

Don’t Live with Damaged Teeth Any Longer!

Are you embarrassed about missing or damaged teeth? You are not alone. Over 100 million adults are missing teeth. 
Embarrassed

A dental implant is a great solution for missing teeth. The implant is a small, sturdy, titanium post that acts as the root structure would for a natural tooth, and it is placed into your upper or lower jaw bone. After the bone grows around the implant, the implant can hold a crown, bridge or over-denture just like roots hold natural teeth in place.

Just like your real teeth, implants require similar maintenance, which includes brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups. All these steps can help your implants last a lifetime.

Benefits of Implants

Whether you are missing a tooth or you want to get rid of your dentures, implants offer a number of benefits, including the following:

  • Eliminates the need for a partial removable denture, not to mention the messy denture glues and pastes.
  • Supports a single or full bridge.
  • Helps prevent bone loss and gum recession.
  • Makes it easier to chew, eat, talk and smile.
  • Secures dentures for a more comfortable fit.
  • Reduces wrinkles on your face, giving you a younger appearance.
  • Provides a reliable, long-term dental solution that can last a lifetime!
