What are Dental Implants?
Dental Implants are artificial tooth roots that our dentist will fasten into your jaw. The implant will securely hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Your new dental implants will look, feel, and function as though they were your own teeth!

How do Dental Implants work?
The design of dental implants are meant for the dentist to restore and replace the natural function of a missing tooth. Your natural tooth can be broken down into 2 main parts:

(1) The natural tooth sitting above your gums
(2) The root that is securely fastened to your bone.

Treatment by dental implants aims to replace these two components using durable materials that look and feel like your original tooth:

(1) New Crown – customly designed to match the shape and shade of your original tooth
(2) Titanium Implant – restores function of the natural tooth root.

Your Facial Anatomy Is Unique!
The method by which dental implants are placed into your jaw can vary from patient to patient. We invite you to set up a consultation visit with our dentist, so that we can evaluate, present, and discuss your best options.

Are Dental Implants safe?
Yes, absolutely! The key word here is “Osseointegration,” which is a fancy term to describe the healing process of the titanium dental implants fusing with the bone. Utilizing titanium as the new tooth roots, your body will not only recognize and accept the dental implants, but also prevent any chance of infection; this also promotes a healing process that is much faster.

Why do I need Dental Implants?
No other treatments will restore the natural function of a lost tooth better than dental implants. Dental implants can restore up to 90% of your original tooth’s functionality.
