Smile Solutions with Dental Implants

There’s never been a better way to replace your missing teeth than with our dental implants. We provide comprehensive dental implant therapy right here in our location, so that you can enjoy an affordable new smile without making multiple trips between different providers or expensive specialists.

Why Dental Implants?

Strength and Longevity

Implants are artificial tooth roots that are anchored into your mouth near the area where your missing tooth once stood. They’re made of titanium, which is frequently used during joint replacement. This material is extremely biocompatible and triggers new bone growth, allowing the implant to become fused permanently into your jaw. As such, it makes the new “tooth root” stronger than your natural teeth. In nearly 98% of cases, a well-maintained implant can last for the entire life of the patient. 

Minimal Discomfort

Replacing an entire tooth with an implant is a far more straightforward process than most people assume. In fact, there’s very little discomfort or swelling afterward that can’t be controlled with an over the counter pain reliever. Most people say that getting implants is easier than having a tooth pulled!

Dental implants are the next best thing to having your real teeth all over again. No other type of tooth replacement can look and feel like the design of an implant that mimics natural anatomy. Chances are that after getting implants, you’ll wish you hadn’t waited so long!

An Investment in You

Compared to other types of dental treatments or tooth replacement options, implants provide one of the best return on investments for restoring your smile’s health and function. Ongoing maintenance means that other types of treatments gradually wear out and need to be replaced, but a dental implant is usually forever.

If you’re planning to have a tooth extracted, we recommend discussing implant options.  Replacing your tooth soon after the (or at the same) appointment can help to preserve natural spacing between your other teeth, so that they don’t start to shift or move out of place.
