If you are missing one tooth or a lot of teeth, a dental implant might be the best solution and secret to your future oral health. Implants offer the closest comparison to healthy, natural teeth. Nearly impossible to notice, the enjoyment of a dental implant can be yours– including the comfort and convenience of a happy and healthy smile!

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into the jawbone, fusing it with the natural bone. It is permanent and secure, keeping the tooth (or teeth) in place.
The process of dental implants requires a healthy jaw bone. If this isn’t the case for you, a dental bridge will most likely be recommended.
We love this youtube video explaining the differences between crowns, implants, and bridges in greater detail!
In general, there are three types of people for whom dental implants are made:
A dental crown is often used to protect a weak tooth (usually from decay) from breaking or to hold together a tooth that may be cracked. It is also used to support or cover a tooth that has a large filling and very little tooth structure left.
While implants are often intimidating, they are the closest option to natural, healthy teeth. Nearly unnoticeable once obtained, they are the perfect answer to the self-consciousness and inconvenience that all too frequently accompanies missing teeth.
