Dental implants allow you to smile with confidence, knowing your teeth look naturally beautiful and your smile will be preserved well into the future.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are titanium posts that are inserted into the jawbone where teeth are missing. They act as a replacement for the root of the tooth.
Within a few months bone fuses around the implant making a secure fit and creating a strong foundation for teeth. They provide stable anchors to attach esthetically pleasing, natural-looking teeth. More importantly, implants can help preserve the facial structure, preventing bone deterioration that occurs as a result of missing teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions…
Question: “Do these replacement teeth look, feel and function like regular teeth?”
Answer: The answer is “yes”. In addition, the implants themselves will help to prevent bone loss that normally occurs when teeth are missing in one’s mouth.
Question: “How long does it take until you are back to normal and enjoying all of your favorite foods and smiling with confidence?”
Answer: The answer is that this can all happen in one day because after the implant is placed you can go back to your normal activities the same day and have very little to no discomfort at all.
The fact is that with dental implants you will never be without teeth. Furthermore, if you have dentures they will be adjusted the SAME day to fit over the area. Then after you have healed which typically takes about 3-4 months, you will receive a replacement tooth.
The procedure can be done with local anesthetics, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), or even sedation for those patients who experience anxiety.
