Dental implants are an option for tooth replacement.  They may be appropriate for people who have a full or a partial denture, or who have lost individual teeth.


During this procedure, a small titanium shaft is implanted into the jawbone and allowed to set. The bone grows around it forming a tight connection. Once the implant is firmly set in the mouth, the dentist then works to attach the replacement tooth or denture onto the top of the shaft.

Implants can also be used as support as part of an implant bridge. This is an alternative to partial dentures, and has several advantages. First, implant supported restorations resemble and feel much more like natural teeth. Second, this slows the bone loss associated with missing teeth. Third, there is no discomfort or difficulty in eating. And, best of all, of course, they don't have to be taken out all the time.

We also offer mini dental implants. These implants are about half the diameter of traditional implants and are used mainly to stabilize lower dentures. They can be used where other implants cannot. These implants can be placed in one appointment and be immediately used. Call today for a consultation appointment or for additional information.
