Building A New Foundation For Your Smile

Missing teeth can diminish the look of your smile and your self-confidence with it. Dental implants create a new foundation for permanent replacements for your missing teeth. A dental implant is fitted into the jaw to serve as the foundation for a new tooth, which is screwed into the implant. This holds your new tooth in place and restores your smile. Dental implants can be used for those with strong jaws who don't want to worry about denture cream or removing and cleaning partials. With dental implants, you'll get natural-looking teeth and a complete smile once again!

The benefits of

Dental Implants

Prevent Bone Loss

Gaps in your jawbone can lead to bone loss as time progresses. Dental implants stimulate the bone and strengthen it.

Natural Performance

The jaw is designed to hold roots, and dental implants serve as those roots when the natural ones are missing, keeping the jaw's integrity.

Prevent Gum Disease

Missing teeth leave holes in the gums that can trap food particles and plaque, leading to gum disease. Dental implants fill those holes and prevent gum disease.

Stabilize Teeth

Gaps in your jaw weakens the ligaments holding nearby teeth, allowing them to move. Dental implants keeps your teeth where they belong.

Long Lasting

Dental implants are made from titanium and are designed to last for years, so you can chew with confidence with your new tooth or teeth!

Strengthen Your Facial Structure

Dental implants strengthen your jaw, which helps prevent bone loss over time. This keeps your jaw strong for years to come.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

Most insurance plans only partially cover dental work. We will work with you to determine what your policy will cover. We have financing options available to cover the rest. 

The dental implant is placed in the jaw where the root of the missing tooth would be. An artificial tooth is screwed into the implant, completing your smile.

You may experience some jaw pain and discomfort for up to 5-7 days after the dental implants are placed. The pain should fade and feel normal after about a week.

Your jaw needs to be strong enough to hold the dental implant in place. Those with severe gum disease or bone deterioration may not be good candidates for dental implants. We will determine your viability with an initial examination. 

Dental implants have been used for decades and are proven to be safe. However, they must be installed surgically, which can pose risks. We will discuss any potential risks with you prior to your procedure.
