Dental Implants

Dental implants have revolutionized the replacement of teeth. Whether teeth are lost to an accident, disease or have been missing since birth dental implants can be the next best thing to natural teeth.

Dental implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gums and allow for replacement teeth to be attached onto them.

Benefits of Implants

  • A stable and secure support for artificial teeth
  • More natural feel than traditional bridges and dentures
  • Eliminate many of the problems associated with other teeth replacement methods (including cleaning, replacements, and more)
  • Allow patients to eat with confidence
