Why Dental Implants?
Dental implants have become a very popular option for those needing replacement teeth.
- Implants last longer – Over time, the bone begins to dissolve where teeth are missing. Dentures and bridges do not provide support for the underlying bone structure in the jaw.Dental implants are imbedded directly into the jawbone and consequently protect the integrity of the bone structure.
- Implants look more natural – Implants are invisible from the outside – most people cannot tell that you have dental implants. You can smile, eat, and speak with confidence!
- Implants are more comfortable – Because implants are implanted directly into the jaw and gums, most people forget they even have them. They are not bulky like bridges and dentures.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are both a permanent and appealing solution and will fit, feel, and look like a natural tooth. Dental implants are a great alternative to bridges because only one tooth needs to be replaced, not multiple.
Overall, the process takes a couple months, allowing for the jawbone to form around the foundation screw that has been implanted. Once the implant has healed and is firmly in place, an abutment is placed over the top, and will serve as a base for the new tooth. The permanent restoration tooth is created to fit perfectly with the abutment. The dental lab creates the crown to precise specifications and it is then firmly sealed to the abutment. This creates an amazing looking permanent implant that blends seamlessly with your own teeth.

What others say about us
I was a little fuzzy when leaving the office yesterday and it was a couple of hours later when I really looked in the mirror.
Your good and careful work has made a remarkable improvement in the appearance of those bottom teeth. I could hardly believe it, and now will not be so conscious when smiling.
When Mike saw me there in the waiting room he said “Oh, Delores, that is so good”. And, the inside feels very smooth – after all these years!
Thank you for all the excellent work you have done, your kind consideration and your friendship.
