Would you like a tooth replacement which feels and performs like your own teeth?
Dental implants are small man-made titanium screws that serve as a replacement for the root portion of a missing tooth. They can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. Implant supported replacement teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth.
Anyone who is missing one, more than one, or even all of their teeth may be a candidate for dental implants. Age is not necessarily a restriction to dental implants – if you are healthy enough to have a tooth extracted, you’re probably healthy enough to receive implants. Your dentist will determine if you are a candidate for implants after a careful evaluation of your dental and medical history.

Dental implants are an effective, safe and predictable solution to the problems resulting from missing teeth. Many patients report exciting benefits from dental implants, such as:
- Replacement teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth
- Improved taste and appetite
- Improved cosmetic appearance
- The ability to chew without pain or gum irritation
- Improved quality of life
One additional and very important benefit can be the reduction or elimination of bone atrophy or shrinkage, commonly associated with loss of teeth.
