Dental Implants


A dental implant starts with a titanium root, fitted into a socket which we will create in your jaw to replace the loss of your natural tooth. A support tooth will then be placed into the implant and a new crown is placed on top of it.

Implants are frequently an excellent option to replace a tooth or multiple teeth that were lost for many reasons. Dental implants are made of titanium and take advantage of a biological phenomena called osseointegration. Osseointegration allows bone to heal up against the titanium implant surface and anchor the dental implant firmly into the bone allowing a crown(cap) to be placed on top of the implant thereby replacing the lost or missing tooth.

Dental Implants are good for people who:

  • Have lost a tooth or teeth due to injury

  • Have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease

  • Through natural wear and tear have lost a tooth or teeth

Dental Implants can:

  • Replace one or more teeth without affecting bordering teeth.

  • Support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removable partial denture.

  • Provide support for a denture, making it more secure and comfortable
