Implant dentistry has been practiced for over 20 years and is a permanent, long term solution for tooth loss. It utilizes prosthetics that closely mimic natural teeth. Dental implants are considered to be a superior choice because they can be applied individually, do not rely on neighboring teeth like bridges do, and successfully restore esthetics, comfort, and functionality. In addition, they can be used to anchor partials, bridges or full dentures, also known as implant supported dentures.

Am I a Candidate for Implant Dentistry?
By the age of 44, about 178 million Americans will be missing at least one tooth. Even though the loss of a single tooth may not seem extreme, it can cause substantially negative effects to your oral health and even your general health.
If you have a single or multiple missing teeth and would like a long term solution, dental implants may be ideal for you. To learn if you are a candidate, we welcome you to schedule a consultation with our experienced dental team.
