Dental Implants

A dental implant is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge and denture.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small titanium cylinders that are surgically inserted into the bone of the jaw, A restoration is then anchored to the implant. Since the implant is inserted into the jaw, surrounding teeth are not affected. Also, bone levels are preserved an added plus!

The procedure:

We will create a model of your mouth which will allow us to make precise measurements and pinpoint the optimum location for the implant. Then we will surgically place the titanium cylinder. When the area is healed, we will attach the custom-made restoration.


Will they work for you?

Implants are a great way to replace missing teeth, whether it is a single tooth, multiple teeth or a full set of dentures that you are replacing. Dentures, bridges or individual teeth attached to the implant provides stability and a more secure fit, as well as a more natural look and feel.

You are a candidate for dental implants if:

you have enough jaw bone, and dense enough bone, to secure the implants you do not have a disease or condition that interferes with proper healing after implant surgery 
(e.g. uncontrolled diabetes, or radiation/chemotherapy for treating cancer)
