Implant Dentistry Procedures to Restore Your Beautiful Smile
Dental Implants Can Replace Teeth Permanently
We encourage all patients to resort to some type of tooth replacement procedure when they have a single missing tooth or several missing teeth, for many reasons. First and foremost, losing a tooth can cause bone loss and interfere with your ability to eat and speak properly. We can place dental implants directly into the jaw bone to reduce the risk of bone loss and help you maintain optimal functioning of the mouth and jaw.
Implant Supported Dentures to Restore Your Smile
Some patients are better candidates for implant supported dentures — especially if they have lost an entire arch of teeth. We can discuss the benefits of both the dental implant procedure and implant supported dentures during your consultation.
Enjoy a Better Quality of Life With a Dental Implant
Undergoing a dental implant procedure can improve your quality of life. If you have lost some teeth, let us restore the look and functioning of your smile with dental implants or implant supported dentures.

What Are Implant Supported Dentures?
Some patients are great candidates for tooth replacement with implant supported dentures. These provide more stability than traditional dentures and can be a viable solution for patients with missing teeth..
We will place a set of metal bars along the gum line that connect the implants placed within the jaw bone. Together these serve as the foundation for the dentures to rest upon. This method provides a secure fit and makes it easier to chew food and speak properly.
These dentures are secured to the implants with a ball and socket mechanism. They do not shift or slip as a result, and no adhesives or pastes are required.
