Dental implant head and bridge

What are dental implants?

One of the most effective tooth replacement options available, dental implants are screws that are surgically placed in the jawbone to provide a stable replacement for your missing teeth. Dental implants replace both the root and crown of the missing tooth, ensuring that the implant looks and feels like a natural tooth. When properly cared for, dental implants can last for a lifetime.

Do I need dental implants?

Whether you are missing one tooth, multiple teeth, or all of the natural teeth, dental implants may be the right solution for replacing your missing teeth. Dental implants are surgically placed in the jawbone, providing a secure foundation for the dental implant restoration. Following a period of healing, our caring dentists will place the dental implant restoration, which may be:

  • A dental crown
  • A dental bridge
  • A full denture
  • A partial denture

When in place, your dental implant can effectively restore the health, function, and beauty of your smile. Dental implant restorations are custom made to fit your smile and your bite.
