Thanks to their many benefits, our top-notch oral surgeons can improve the appearance and function of your smile better than ever before. If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants may be the ideal solution for you!
A dental implant is a small titanium post that we surgically embed into the jawbone. The implant serves as the root component of a prosthetic tooth. Once the implant is in place, it will fuse to the bone during the process of osseointegration. Osseointegration allows the implant to support a restoration against the strongest forces of your bite. For this reason, dental implants are widely considered to be the next best thing to your natural teeth.

Implant Supported Dentures
If you are looking to replace all your teeth and aiming for more functional consistency, but do not want to replace all your missing teeth with single implant crowns, then a bar-retained, implant-supported overdenture is a good option. This is a hybrid solution that optimizes both the benefits of comprehensive dentures with that of implants.

One of our most common treatments is All-on-4, a complete fixed bridge supported by a series of dental implants.

Tooth loss often leads to bone loss in the jaw. A dental implant needs a solid foundation of bone to support it, and bone loss is a common issue when teeth have been missing for a significant period of time. When bone loss occurs in the upper premolar or molar areas the sinus can fill in the gap left by the receding bone. No harm is caused by the sinus filling in the gap left by receding bone, but if dental implants are desired a sinus lift may be necessary
