Embrace a Full and Radiant Smile

Dental implants represent the most advanced system for tooth replacement available today. While traditional fixed bridges and dentures are still effective ways to replace missing teeth, dental implants come the closest to mimicking the look, feel, and function of natural teeth.

A Versatile Solution for Tooth Replacement

Types of Dental Implants:

  • Single-tooth implant:

    When one tooth is missing, a dental implant crowned with a natural-looking replacement can replicate the look and feel of a real tooth. Unlike traditional bridges, which require adjacent teeth to be prepared and crowned as well, a single-tooth implant acts independently, providing you with an excellent solution for restoring your smile.

  • Implant-supported fixed bridges:

    Unlike traditional fixed bridges that require the preparation and crowning of any adjacent natural teeth, an implant-supported bridge uses a select number of strategically placed dental implants to support all the necessary crowns and replacement teeth. This approach preserves the integrity of your remaining natural teeth while providing ongoing stimulation to prevent bone loss and maintain facial contours.

  • Full arch replacement with four or six implants:

    For patients missing an entire set of teeth, a complete smile can be achieved with the placement of four or six strategically placed dental implants. These small surgical posts provide a stable foundation for a permanent and non-removable set of replacement teeth that look, feel, and function just like natural ones.

  • Implant-retained denture:

    An implant-retained denture attaches to a select number of strategically placed implants in the upper or lower jaw. These small surgical posts provide a secure anchor for the overlying denture, offering greater stability and retention than traditional dentures.
