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.
