Dental Implants

Implants are one of the most versatile restorative dental options for patients with missing teeth. Dental implants can securely replace single or multiple lost teeth. During dental implant treatment, we place the titanium implant posts in the jaw bone. Over time, the titanium implants fuse with the jaw bone tissue. Because of this, dental implants offer stability and strength to dental crowns, bridges, and dentures.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a prosthetic that replaces multiple consecutive missing teeth. We can restore two or more teeth with a dental bridge. Traditional dental bridges are secured by teeth adjacent to the missing tooth gap. Dental crowns cover these anchor teeth for added stability. However, traditional bridges do not support the health of the remaining teeth and gums. Dental bridges lay on top of the gums. Implant-supported dental bridges replace teeth at the root and improve the health of the smile. Dental implants create a stable foundation for bridges and other restorations.


Removable dentures use snaps or adhesives that do not fully secure prosthetics in the mouth. Additionally, patients with traditional removable dentures may find it difficult to comfortably bite and chew. Implant-secured dentures are a more stable restoration that helps patients enjoy their smiles without any dietary restorations. With implant-supported dentures, patients can eat the foods they love. Patients who choose implant dentures also do not have to worry about their restoration slipping around the mouth. Implants stabilize dentures and look and feel natural.
