About Dental Implants
Implants act and feel just like natural teeth!
Dental implants are the modern method for replacing missing teeth. These are lifelike artificial teeth that permit you to talk and eat comfortably – and to smile with confidence. If you have teeth that are missing or are beyond repair, then you really should consider implants.

What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a high-tech artificial tooth. It is made of a safe, biocompatible substance and is the “gold standard” among dentists when it comes to replacing missing or badly damaged teeth. Implants can improve your appearance and give you more confidence, as well as allow you to chew better.
Just like your natural teeth, a dental implant has a root — a titanium post — and a crown; in this case a fabricated porcelain one. The implant is placed first and then the crown is placed after the implant has integrated (healed) into your jawbone. It is the closest thing to a natural tooth available in modern dentistry today.
Treatment options for missing teeth using implants
Dental implants are one of the most flexible, natural-looking ways to enhance your smile. Below are some examples of the numerous possible treatment combinations available when utilizing lifelike dental implants.
- Single-Tooth Replacement Are you missing just a single, isolated tooth? If so then consider a single-tooth implant that will complement the rest of your smile.
- Implant-Supported Dentures Implant-supported dentures are removable. They fit over a ball and socket (or a bar) and are securely clipped into place by the attachments.
- Multiple-Teeth Replacement You can use single implants to replace many missing teeth, or for multiple missing teeth in a row you can get an Implant-Supported Bridge.
- Full-Mouth Reconstruction This involves extensive dental restoration of your entire smile, including your bite, to create a new beautiful, healthy smile.
