Dental implants, once considered the wave of the future, have become virtually routine in practices like ours with teams that have recieved special training. Ideally, an implant should be placed immediately after losing even one tooth to protect you against receding bone and shifting teeth. Even so, in the evet that time has passed and bone loss occurred, modern technigques for bone regeneration make dental implants a viable option for many people.

Implants can be used…

  • to replace teeth lost by decay, gum disease, or trauma once the jaw has stopped growing.
  • to secure and prevent slipping of removable dentures and bridges.

There is little down time, and while there are some procedural differences between placing cosmetic implants and those to anchor bridges or dentures, for best results we prefer to do it in stages…

First

  • We surgically place your implant or implants into the jawbone under your gumline

And…

  • We can insert a temporary appliance so you won’t be too shy to smile while you continue with your busy life.

Then…

  • After a few months when the implant beomes securely anchored, we will permanently attach a custom- designed replacement tooth that will blend perfectly with your natural smile.

We consider dental implants to be the gold standard of care and hope you will too. They are time-tested, predictable, and so reliable that millions are places annually in North America.
