About Dental Implants...

A dental implant is like an artificial tooth root. In its simplest form, the implant holds in a tooth crown.
The assembled components of a dental implant can mimic a natural tooth.

When more than one tooth is missing, implants can be used to hold in bridgework, in much the same way tooth supported bridgework is held in.

Implants can be used to help make dentures more stable and comfortable, without the need for adhesives or glues.

Implants may be used for...

Replacing a single missing tooth without having to cut down the adjacent teeth.

As root replacements for holding in bridgework. Eliminate removable appliances.

Stabilizing lower dentures. Many people have difficulty with lower dentures, and implants can bring about a great improvement in the quality of their lives. No more adhesive!

Making upper dentures stable without having to cover the roof of the mouth with plastic. Great for gaggers.
