Dental implants have revolutionized the way we treat/replace missing teeth. They are a safe, medically proven, esthetic alternative to replacing teeth with traditional bridgework or dentures. When replacing teeth with a bridge, healthy adjacent teeth have to be shaped or cut down. Removable dentures can be embarrassing in social situations if they slip or causing clicking sounds when eating or speaking.
Dental implants do not harm healthy teeth and are designed to look, feel and function like natural teeth so that you can eat, speak and smile with confidence. To determine if you are a candidate for dental implants, our doctors will perform a detailed oral examination, medical consultation and x-rays to evaluate your case. And, we will work as a team with your dentist/prosthodontist to plan the treatment that will best suit your needs.
