Dental implants offer a solid, secure, and aesthetic way of replacing a tooth or teeth lost because of accident, injury, disease or extraction…
"An implant is special titanium post that is placed into the upper or lower jaw. The bone in your jaw bonds to the post, forming a secure foundation onto which your new teeth are then attached and shaped to match your mouth."
When permanent teeth are lost, regardless of the reason or number of teeth, dental implants can offer a “new lease on life.” They are superior to other choices because they are solid, secure, and esthetic. After nearly 35 years of use, they have a 90-95% proven success rate in appropriately chosen cases. The number of teeth being replaced will determine the best kind of restoration for you. Implants can help replace a single tooth, or a full set of teeth. If you have been suffering with partial or full dentures, or are missing teeth, or feel you need teeth extracted, do not hesitate to call to be evaluated for implants.
