Nearly half of the population is affected by the loss of one or more teeth. Because our lifestyles, social activities, and appearances are so much a part of our individual uniqueness, tooth loss may be a deeply personal issue. With today's advancements, no one should feel self-conscious about their smile, their comfort, or their ability to eat certain foods.

Whether you are missing only one tooth or many teeth, dental implants may be an option for you. Implants have the look, feel and function of natural teeth. They are the most natural and conservative option for replacing teeth.

Implants can replace teeth that have been missing since birth or teeth that have been lost to gum disease, infection, trauma or decay. They can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth. They can dramatically increase the retention and stability of dentures, especially the lower denture.

Many patients who have received dental implants comment that there is a significant improvement in the quality of their lives. Patients feel more confident and comfortable chewing and smiling. Implants help eliminate many of the problems associated with bridges, removable partials and full dentures.

Dental implant benefits include:
  • Increased chewing function
  • Restored natural tooth appearance
  • Elimination of partial/dentures
  • Elimination of denture adhesives
  • Reduced bone loss
  • Tooth stability
  • Improved speech
  • Increased comfort
  • Improved self-esteem
