Modern preventive dental care, according to epidemiological studies, it is estimated that 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth and about 40 million Americans are missing all of their teeth.  The main causes of tooth loss, tooth decay and gum disease have plagued man since the dawn of time.  In the past, missing teeth could only be replaced with bridges or dentures, but now we have dental implants. Our practice offers world class implant dentistry with a cosmetic touch.

What are Dental Implants?

In 1982, Per-Ingvar Branemark, a Swedish orthopedist, introduced a titanium dental implant which would fuse to human bone.  This remarkable discovery has been refined to become the standard of care for replacement of missing teeth. Implant size and length are based on each patient’s bone quality and quantity. Implants are made of titanium and have special coatings that encourage the fusing of human bone. The top of each implant has an internal screw channel so that crowns, bridges, and or dentures can be screwed in place.

What are the advantages of Dental Implants?

Missing teeth can mar an otherwise beautiful smile. Dental implants can provide a stable and long lasting tooth-like replacement to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.

Implant restorations are lifelike in shape and feel.  Crowns, bridges, and dentures can be made with lifelike shapes and dimensions which will improve speech.

Dental implants can be used to support  crowns or bridges with a lifelike feel and appearance.  They can also support dentures which don’t have to be removed.

There is no doubt that a beautiful smile and better chewing ability will increase your self-esteem and help you succeed socially.
