Dental Implants

Are Missing Teeth Holding You Back From Smiling?

If you’re embarrassed over damaged or missing teeth, you’re in good company. Over 100 million American adults are missing teeth.
Embarrassed because of missing teeth

A dental implant is a small, sturdy post that is made of titanium. During a surgical procedure, your dentist will install the post into your jaw bone, allowing the bone tissue to grow in around your implant. After it has a solid attachment to your bones, the implant forms a foundation for crowns, over-dentures, or bridges.

This procedure is safe for most healthy people. If you are a heavy smoker or have heart disease or diabetes, you will need to undergo a more stringent evaluation.

  • Providing a lifetime solution to dental problems.
  • Securing dentures to provide a pleasant fit.
