Dental Implants

Dental implants are a solution for those missing a tooth or numerous teeth. This surgical procedure involves a medical device (a titanium root) being placed into the jaw. A restoration, such as a crown, bridge, or denture, is then attached to the implant.

  • It helps keep adjacent (nearby) teeth stable
  • Improves self-esteem and quality of life

Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

Dental implants are not appropriate for every patient. Your dentist will determine if this is the best solution based on several factors, which include:

  • Overall health may affect how long it will take to heal and how long the implant may stay in place.
  • If you are a smoker, this may affect the healing process and decrease the long-term success of the implant.
  • Sufficient bone in the jaw to place the implant.
  • Certain diseases may make you ineligible as they increase the risk of complications.
  • Age, as implants are generally not advised in growing adolescents.
  • The health of the gum tissue. Gums need to be healthy for implants to be successful.

“Everything about this group is outstanding. I have never been happier with a dentist. Everything is spotlessly clean. Everyone is smiling and happy. You can get an appointment early in the morning or at night. I send all my friends looking for a dentist to them and nobody has been disappointed yet.”
