Dental Implants: The Closest Replica of Natural Teeth
Tooth loss is a serious oral health concern, affecting millions of patients. Missing teeth impacts how you eat, how you feel about yourself and your overall quality of life. While traditional tooth replacements still offer viable solutions in some cases, the highest standard of care you can give your smile is dental implants. In fact, implants offer the closest replica of natural tooth structure over any other tooth replacement. Dental implants consist of a biocompatible titanium screw that acts as the tooth root and a highly esthetic, natural-looking restoration that performs as the crown, or portion visible in the mouth. With dental implants, you can take back the freedom to enjoy your smile, and completely restore function and appearance after tooth loss.

Flexible, Permanent Solutions
Dental implants can replace any number of missing teeth, from one to an entire arch. These solutions offer a variety of options and can be customized to meet your individual tooth replacement needs. Implants are unique for a wide range of reasons, but specifically because they actually fuse with the bone over time. This forms a solid connection between your jaw and replacement teeth, bringing the greatest level of stability for your smile available today. Dental implants are permanent tooth replacement options, and rarely need to be replaced. Unlike traditional methods, they do not alter or rely on surrounding teeth for support.
