Dental Implants - A Permanent Tooth Replacement option
Dental implant treatment replaces teeth using a modern approach, restoring bite function and a natural appearance. With dental implants, patients have the opportunity to restore a bite that feels and looks natural. Whether you have single or multiple teeth missing, you can have those gaps filled and achieve a comfortable bite. This treatment is an alternative to traditional dentures, partials, or bridges, which require maintenance over time to properly fit the smile. Dental implants and restorations are designed to last for years, offering the benefits of premium materials that make your bite normal and your smile beautiful.
why consider dental implants
Losing one or more of your teeth creates a gap in your smile, affects your ability to chew properly, and can alter your diet and nutrition. While these are all serious issues.
Did you know that tooth loss also leads to bone loss?

dental implant therapy
When a tooth is lost, the jawbone beneath it begins to shrink (or atrophy) and becomes brittle from lack of exercise. Not only does losing a tooth affect your smile, it also changes the shape of your face causing you to look prematurely aged.
benefits of dental implants
- replaces missing teeth
- maintains bone*
- maintains your youthful appearance
- restores your natural smile
Individual tooth options
Individual missing teeth can be replaced by dental Implants without altering your healthy adjacent teeth. Once dental implants are placed, posts (or abutments) are attached, providing support for your final crowns.
Dental implants with a crown
- Attractive Smile
- full chewing ability
- preserve healthy teeth and jawbone
- maintains bone*
Traditional crown & bridge
- attractive smile
- grinds down healthy teeth
- may lead to bone loss under bridge
- greater risk for cavities and tooth failure
Your implant-supported restoration options include:
Individual Crowns – These replace single tooth gaps, or teeth sporadically missing throughout the smile. Crowns are made from porcelain, which makes for a natural look and exhibits strength nearly on par with real teeth.
Bridges – When you have multiple teeth in a row missing, implants provide an anchor to support a longer line of teeth. Unlike traditional bridges, healthy teeth are left intact, and the restoration fits seamlessly in your smile.
Hybrid Dentures – Implant-supported dentures are permanently attached in your smile, effectively restoring whole rows of teeth. These can be applied to both upper and lower arches, rebuilding dental function. For a full set of teeth that won’t fall out, consider how hybrid dentures can assist you.
