A missing tooth means you're missing out on more than just smiling. It can have a negative impact on your confidence and your overall well being, too. Dental implants can help you eat, laugh, and talk with ease once again.
After losing a tooth or having one extracted, it’s important to consider all your replacement options. Dental implants can restore the functionality of your bite and improve your overall oral health. As one of the most secure and long-lasting tooth replacement options available, dental implants act as a natural part of your smile and replace that missing tooth you’ve been hiding.
Unlike dentures which require replacements, dental implants can potentially last a lifetime.

We offer implant placement for patients with missing teeth. Patients with a few missing teeth on either the upper or lower jaw can get single-tooth implants that support either a dental crown or a bridge. Those that are missing an entire set of teeth in the upper or lower jaw can opt for full-arch reconstructions supported by 4-6 dental implants.
Dental implants are made from high-quality titanium posts that last a lifetime. The prosthetic teeth we use for our implants are the best in their class and look and feel just like natural teeth. Your dentist will recommend what type of implants are best suited for your case, so you can restore your beautiful smile.
We also offer dental implant restoration services to help you achieve a beautiful and natural looking smile. A restoration refers to the visible portion of the dental implant: crowns, bridges, and full-arch reconstructions are all types of restorations. Our team of dental professionals will work with you to create a customized treatment plan to restore your dental implants to provide you with seamless, fully-functioning smile.
We also provide comprehensive dental implant maintenance services to help you keep your dental implants healthy and functional for years to come. Our team of dental professionals will work with you to create a personalized maintenance plan to ensure that your dental implants remain in top condition.
During your maintenance appointment, our dental implant specialists will thoroughly clean your implants and check for any signs of damage or infection in the rest of your mouth. We’ll also provide you with advice on how to care for your implants at home.
Patients may sometimes knock out their tooth or fracture it beyond salvation. We offer single-tooth implants for such cases. These implants, as the name suggests, only replace a single tooth in the upper or lower jaw. With single tooth implants, the dentist will drill a titanium post into the jawbone before attaching the abutment that holds the prosthetic tooth.
Dentists take digital scans of your existing teeth to ensure the implant looks and feels like your natural teeth. Installing the implant only takes 30 minutes, but patients must wait two weeks for us to manufacture their implants. You can go back to your usual eating habits six months following the treatment
We also offer full-arch implants for replacing missing teeth on the entire upper or lower jaw line. These consist of a full set of prosthetic teeth to replace all the teeth in either jaw. They also consist of a few strategically positioned implants to support the prosthetic teeth. You can have full-arch implants in one or both jaws.
Mini implants are like conventional dental implants but with smaller diameters (usually less than 3mm) and shorter lengths. They’re ideal for patients with inadequate jaw bone mass that disqualifies them from getting regular implants. They’re also ideal for replacing small teeth like the canines and incisors, and heal faster than regular implants.
We are honored that you’ve chosen us to help you regain your oral health. To show our gratitude, we are offering our patients an exclusive dental implant special. Get the high-quality care your smile deserves today.

Implants function and feel just like natural teeth so you can brush, floss, and eat normally.
Your implant will be crafted to fit seamlessly with your smile and will look exactly like a real tooth.
Implants are made of biocompatible titanium which fuses to your jaw, thus preventing bone deterioration associated with tooth loss.
Once you’ve been approved for treatment, your doctor will schedule your oral surgery appointment and provide a surgical plan. During the surgery, your doctor will make an incision in your gum tissue to securely place a dental implant in the jaw. Next, the area will be cleaned and sutures will be placed to begin the healing process.
Your gums and jawbone will begin to heal once your implant has been placed. After 1-2 weeks, the incision site will be healed, but it will take 3-6 months for the implant to permanently bond with your jaw bone through a process called osseointegration. To ensure you are healing properly, we will see you for a couple of check ups during the osseointegration process.
The final step in the implant treatment process is the restoration. Your restoration, or prosthetic dental crown, will be custom crafted to match your smile and securely affixed to the titanium implant. Once your new tooth is in place, your smile will be complete!

In some cases, you may be able to get an implant in just one day, depending on the type of implant you will be receiving. In these cases, the restoration your doctor provides will be a temporary appliance to keep your tooth healthy and functional until you have fully healed from your dental implant placement surgery. With your temporary restoration, you’ll be able to speak and eat normally during the healing process.
Your doctor will schedule a series of follow-up appointments to track your healing process and take impressions or models of your teeth. These will help the lab create your custom-made restoration. Your permanent restoration will be durable and more natural-looking than your temporaries. We recommend coming in for a consultation to see what type of dental implant might work best for you.
Yes. After losing a tooth, your jaw will no longer be stimulated by the natural pressure of chewing and biting. This causes bone loss to occur and also weakens the jaw bone.
When the dental implant post is placed, it will bond directly into the jaw bone and act as an artificial tooth root. This titanium “tooth root” transmits the force of chewing and biting through the dental crown and into your jaw bone just like a real tooth would, keeping it healthy and strong.
Titanium dental implants are made in trusted laboratories that supply a wide selection of pre-selected standard post sizes. The restoration, on the other hand, is a custom-made appliance. This ensures each patient gets a result that meets their exact needs. Your doctor will either make your dental implant in-house using a milling machine, or they will send detailed impressions or models to a partner lab.
This lab will create a long-lasting, resilient dental implant restoration just for you. Most crowns are crafted out of porcelain which is durable and looks uniquely similar to tooth enamel. Once the crown is ready, the lab will send it back to our office, and we will complete the procedure by securely attaching your implant crown in place.
Yes, dental implants can become infected, but this is a very rare complication. This type of infection is known as “peri-implantitis,” and usually only occurs if the implant is not kept clean or is not properly cared for after surgery.
Follow your doctor’s instructions while recovering, and be sure to brush and floss regularly after your implant has healed to avoid peri-implantitis and maintain a healthy implant.
When placed properly and maintained with care, dental implants can last for 30 years or more. In fact, It’s quite common for patients to keep their implants for the rest of their lives.
The implant restoration, however, may not last as long. Restorations such as dental crowns or overdentures take on regular wear and tear from chewing, biting, and more. After time, the restoration may need to be replaced to keep your smile healthy and functional. By coming in for regular exams, your dentist can check to ensure your restoration is in good condition.
Single tooth implants are the most-frequently used dental implant and are made up of two main parts. The first is the dental implant, which is a titanium rod with a screw-like shape. The second part is the dental crown, or restoration, which will be attached to the titanium rod. This dental crown reinstates the shape, function, and appearance of your natural tooth. Unlike a partial denture, single-tooth implants are extremely durable and never move or shift.
