Dental implants are an excellent option to consider when replacing missing teeth. Often more secure and long-lasting than conventional dentures or bridges, dental implants provide a natural looking smile and the ability to talk and eat with ease.

Dental implants are surgically placed beneath the gum line in your jaw bone, allowing the bone to fuse around the implant. To receive dental implants, you must have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. Your dentist will help determine if dental implants are the best solution for you.

Tooth Implants

One or more teeth are missing resulting in an undesirable smile, trouble eating or talking.
Tooth implants are the most genuine replacement option available. The implant process starts with a post that is surgically placed in the jawbone. Once secure, an artificial tooth is installed to the post, resulting in a complete smile. The implant is able to function and perform exactly like a natural tooth, providing ease in both talking and eating.
If the cost of dental implants is too great, dentures or a porcelain bridge may be considered.

Implant Dentures

Conventional dentures are loose and ill fitting, causing pain and discomfort while eating.
Implant dentures may be the answer for loose, conventional dentures. Implant dentures are usually placed in a series of two to four surgeries. The implant post is anchored to the bone and once secure, the implants are placed. Dentures are then constructed and attach to a small bar on the implants. This keeps the dentures in place while talking and eating. Your dentist will help determine if implant dentures are the best option for your needs.
If the cost of implant dentures is too great, new dentures may be considered.
