Give Yourself the Gift of a New Smile

African American Man & Woman SmilingDo you have damaged, missing or diseased teeth due to untreated periodontal (gum) disease or injury? It’s never too late to turn that unhealthy, non-functional and unattractive smile into one that’s healthy, functional and aesthetically pleasing— with dental implants.

Dental Implants in 2024

No matter your age, your missing or diseased teeth can usually be replaced with sturdy dental implants that will look, function and feel just like regular teeth. For individuals who need multiple teeth replaced, we offer dental implants in various combinations with prostheses to provide a reliable alternative to dentures. A handful of dental implants can support a non-removable or even removable fixed bridge that finally allows you to speak, eat and smile again with confidence. While old-fashioned removable dentures are perhaps the lesser cost solution to missing teeth, they unfortunately:

  • Are often uncomfortable.
  • Can slip when you’re eating or talking.
  • Require messy adhesive that needs to be used multiple times a day.
  • Don’t allow for full chewing ability.
  • Can cover taste buds on the palate making food taste bland.
  • Reduce the hot/cold “feel” of the foods we eat.

Dental implants, on the other hand, are surgically implanted in your jawbone in virtually painless office appointments. The titanium posts we implant in your jaw serve as replacement tooth roots which naturally fuse with your jawbone, allowing for stable support for the natural-looking crown restorations or partial or full bridges that are then attached. Only you and your dental professional will know the difference between your new “teeth” and your former natural teeth.
