The Gold Standard in Tooth Replacement
When you are missing teeth, there are unnatural spaces that start to form which can destabilize your jaw, and cause your functionality to deteriorate. These can cause shifts in your mouth that cause a “sunken” look making you appear older than you truly are. Dental implants are used to then restore the structure of your jawline and how your teeth function in your mouth.

What are Dental Implants?
You are probably asking yourself, what is a dental implant and how can it be helpful to me? A dental implant is useful when you are missing one tooth, multiple teeth, or even all of your teeth. Dental implants are small titanium posts or screws that are surgically inserted into the gums and allowed to fuse with the jawbone.
An implant becomes a fully integrated replacement tooth root, which is an essential component of a fully functioning, healthy smile. Implants help stabilize your mouth and jawbone while serving as anchors for permanent restorations like crowns, bridges, and dentures.
How could implants benefit me?
Implants look like natural teeth, and bring you the confidence of having a complete and full smile, but are actually composed of titanium porcelain. A small titanium rod is placed in the jawbone, to act as the tooth’s former root. Next, a custom-made crown is fitted and secured in the place over the implant. The titanium porcelain blends into your smile and creates a new life in your mouth and your life.
Implant Supported Dentures
If you are missing most or all of your natural teeth or living with ill-fitting dentures that rock and slip, we would love to help you regain your healthy functioning smile with implant dentures. Implant dentures are permanent so you don’t have to worry about taking them out for cleaning. You can eat your favorite foods and brush and floss them just you would your natural teeth! Implant dentures are the closest thing to a real set of teeth, and help preserve your oral and facial structure.
