Teeth? Why Not ‘Grow’ New Ones?
Dental implants are the ideal way to replace lost teeth. From
the front of the mouth, where they are most visible, to the
back, where they provide stability to chew a full variety of
foods, implants can help you recapture a beautiful and healthy
smile. Unlike bridges or removable dentures, which sit on top of
the gums, dental implants are placed under the gums. The “tooth”
placed on an implant appears life-like, because it comes through
the gums just like the original did – it’s like growing a new
tooth! Implants can be used to replace any number of lost teeth.
Even people with no teeth can benefit from implants, because
they can replace their dentures with teeth that don’t move
around when they talk, and don’t need to be taken out at night.
Because we handle the entire process from implant placement to
crown fabrication, there’s no need to be referred to another
office. Call for a no-obligation implant consultation today.
Solution For Loose, Slipping Dentures
Are you wearing dentures that slip, tilt, or wander, and you
would prefer to have the strength and stability of implants? You
will be happy to know your dentures can be secured with dental
implants. These provide you with full chewing ability, allowing
for a complete and healthy diet. They also halt the progression
of bone loss and keep your dentures stable in your mouth. Our

Avoid Bone Loss
Your teeth stimulate the surrounding bone each and every time
you chew. This retains the integrity of the bone. When a tooth
is lost, the bone is not stimulated and shrinks away. A dental
implant preserves this bone and can prevent bone loss and
shrinkage of the gums, protecting the surrounding healthy teeth.
Bridges and dentures do not provide this type of support and
protection. This is a prominent concern as we continue to enjoy
life longer and longer. Delaying replacement of your broken or
missing teeth can not only result in unnecessary problems in
your mouth, but can also limit the options to provide you a
We are proud to be one of the first practices in the country to
use Cone Beam™ digital imaging technology. Think of this as a
three-dimensional X-ray that is FAR more accurate than
traditional X-rays, takes much less time, and does all this with
much less radiation exposure.
A great advantage of using ultra cone beam images when
diagnosing patients and evaluating treatment options is the
dentist's ability to clearly see the patient's anatomy in 3-D,
instead of flat, two-dimensional images. This leads to much
greater accuracy for all dental treatment, especially implant
placement and any oral surgeries.
