Dental Implants

Are they an option for you?

Dental implants are an effective way to replace missing teeth.  When teeth are lost because of disease or an accident, dental implants may be a good option.

You may want to choose dental implants if you:

  • Hide your smile because you have missing teeth
  • Wear dentures that are uncomfortable
  • Are dissatisfied with your removable partial dentures
  • Want to keep your other teeth intact

Many people choose implants to replace a single tooth or several teeth, or to support a full set of dentures.  Implants are posts surgically placed into the upper or lower jawbone.  They replace the root of one or  more missing teeth.

Implants offer firm support to man-made teeth.  Dentures, bridges or single teeth attached to the implants won’t slip or shift in your mouth – a very important benefit when eating and speaking.  This secure fit also helps man-made teeth feel more natural than typical bridges or dentures.
