How Dental Implants Work?
Dental Implants are made With materials that are well accepted by the body. Bone forms a natural mechanical bond with the implants. Then the implants provide a base for your dentist to build your replacement tooth or teeth.
What Are The Benefits Of Dental Implants?
Dental implants can be life changing. They can improve your appearance, your speech, your level of comfort, self esteem and overall oral health. They are convenient and durable and they help you speak and smile with confidence knowing that your teeth look great! They truly are an investment in yourself.
In addition, it’s a known fact that oral health is a major factor of good general health? Replacing your missing teeth with implants and implant crowns should allow you to live your life as if you had never suffered from missing teeth.
When your treatment is complete you will be able to chew, speak and socialize without experiencing the negative emotions that having missing teeth can sometimes cause.
Dental Implants with implant crowns will help minimize the amount of bone that will be lost in the areas of missing teeth. Preserving oral bone may help maintain your remaining natural teeth and natural facial contours.
Replacing your missing teeth with implants may also reduce your risk of having poorer nutritional habits often found in patients who do not replace missing teeth.

How Can Dental Implants Improve Your Health?
People with missing teeth or non-implant-supported options (such as dentures) can have problems eating certain foods such as fresh vegetables and fruits which can compromise their nutrition.
In fact patients with dentures often lose some of their ability to taste foods. In addition, chewing can be difficult and painful so digestion is often compromised. Because dental implants function more like teeth, they offer the benefit of better health due to improved nutrition and taste, as well as proper digestion.
Are Dental Implants Difficult To Take Care Of?
Dental implants are designed to be a long lasting solution for tooth loss and are cared for with brushing and flossing, just like natural teeth. Caring for non-implant tooth replacements, like dentures, can be much less convenient compared to implant supported teeth. Dental Implants also eliminate the need to use messy dental adhesives.
What About Mini Dental Implants?
Mini implants are exactly what they sound like. They are very thin, long implants that get gently inserted into the jaw bone. Unlike conventional dental implants they can be used IMMEDIATELY. There is no waiting time for the dental implants to heal.
Because of the way the mini implants are designed and function a minimum of 6-8 mini implants are placed on the upper jaw and a minimum of 4-6 mini implants on the lower jaw.
Primarily, mini implants are used to stabilize dentures. They are mainly used on patients who have severely atrophic ridges (very thin ridge where there is not enough bone to hold a conventional implant) or while conventional implants are healing, mini implants can be inserted the same day to help stabilize a denture and not put any pressure on the ridge so the implants can heal ideally.
On rare occasions they can be used to anchor teeth on to them.

Are Dental Implants Expensive?

We have interest free financing options, long term payment plans, and pay as you go options. We accept credit cards and debit cards as well as other forms of payment.
