Why We Love Dental Implants
Dental implants have become the most popular tooth replacement procedure for dentists and patients alike. And for good reason. You can treat dental implants just like natural teeth. Unlike other tooth replacement technologies, dental implants:
✅ Function like natural teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods without tooth movement or slippage
✅ Preserve the health and integrity of the surrounding teeth
✅ Maintain the natural, youthful appearance of your face by preventing sunken areas around the jaw
✅ Prevent bone deterioration and loss
✅ Require no special care — you can brush and floss just like with regular teeth
✅ Don’t require adjustments
✅ Last a lifetime
Why Choose Dental Implants
No matter how well you take care of your teeth, a lifetime of wear and tear can lead to tooth damage or tooth loss. You don’t have to resign yourself to temporary solutions and frequent adjustments. Dental implants give you the look, comfort, and security of natural teeth, so your smile stays as strong and healthy as ever.
Because they’re affixed to the jaw, the titanium post fuses with the bone over time, creating a strong anchor that gives you a healthy and natural-looking smile. Dental implants help improve your oral health, boost your confidence, and give you the freedom to eat healthy foods like nuts, fruits, and vegetables that can be tough on teeth.
Dental implants have three parts:
- Implant: A medical-grade titanium screw that permanently attaches to the jaw, forming a stable root for your new tooth
- Abutment: A permanent connector that supports one or more teeth
- Crown: A lifelike porcelain crown that’s as durable, strong, and attractive as a natural tooth

Dental Implants FAQs
How affordable are dental implants?
Dental implants have a higher upfront cost than dentures or bridgework, but unlike other tooth replacement options, they require no costly adjustments or replacements. In fact, you can care for them just like you’d care for natural teeth. Because of their longevity and comfort, dental implants are the most cost-effective tooth replacement option long-term.
Am I a good candidate for dental implants?
Once you schedule a dental consultation, our doctors will evaluate your bone structure, gum tissue, sinus and nerve location, and overall oral health to make sure dental implants are the best solution for you. As always, your treatment plan is based on your individual dental needs and goals for a healthier, stronger smile.
How many teeth can be replaced with one implant?
Implants can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a full set of teeth. We offer all-on-fours, which restore an entire set of upper or lower teeth with just four implants and a full arch prosthesis. And because they’re affixed to the jaw, the implants function just like natural teeth, with none of the slippage of dentures.
What special care is required for dental implants?
One of the most attractive features of dental implants is that they require no special care. Simply continue the oral hygiene recommended by your doctor, including daily brushing and flossing, proper gum care, and regular dental checkups and professional cleanings.
