Replace missing teeth and renew your bright, confident smile.


A dental implant is an artificial root that is used to replace missing teeth. The implant itself looks like a tiny screw and is a tiny titanium post that is surgically placed directly into your jawbone. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Once healed, an artificial tooth, called a crown, is placed on the implant.

Implants are often recommended as an alternative to bridges, partials, and dentures. You may also need to have an implant placed to hold a bridge if you have lost a few teeth.

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. If you have lost a tooth, or teeth, an implant helps you regain the ability to eat virtually anything and you can smile with confidence, knowing that your teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. In addition, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.

Dental implants are revolutionizing quality of life after tooth loss. Rediscover for yourself the confidence to eat, speak and laugh as you did before your tooth loss.
