Dental Implants are an exciting technology that have been used in our practice ever since its inception. They are titanium posts used for replacement of the root of a missing tooth or teeth and provide the foundation for a crown, bridge or dentures. Implants have helped hundreds of patients achieve tooth replacement without damaging adjacent teeth or living with cumbersome removable dentures. Dental implants improve chewing comfort and stop adjacent teeth from shifting positions. They prevent further bone loss where a tooth was removed, thereby avoiding weakening of the jawbone and caving in of facial structures.

Your dentist can determine if you are a candidate for dental implants after a careful evaluation of your dental and medical history.
