Implants

Dental implants are excellent replacements for missing teeth.

About Dental Implants

Dental implants provide natural-looking results and also function as your natural tooth root does. A dental implant is a small titanium post that is placed into your upper or lower jaw. Implants can support a crown, bridge, or denture. Since 1952, when the first dental implants were developed, technology has taken leaps and bounds to give us the most modern and dependable solution for replacing missing teeth.

Replacing a Single Tooth with a Dental Implant

A dental implant is an excellent way to replace a single tooth without the disadvantage of a fixed bridge or removable partial. It is the ideal treatment for a missing tooth because it does not affect your adjacent teeth. That means no grinding or crowning for bridges and no clasps for removable dentures. It is like having your real tooth back!

Replacing Multiple Teeth with Dental Implants

As we age, having many missing teeth is detrimental to our health and replacing these teeth is important. Dental implants help maintain the integrity of the jawbone and prevent deterioration of the bone and sagging of the face that can result with missing teeth. Dentures will fit more comfortably and securely with implant support and attachment. Multiple teeth implants are a great way to add confidence to your smile with a truly snug-fitting denture or bridge.

Mini-Implants

MDI, a 3M company, revolutionized dentistry with the introduction of minimally invasive implants for denture stabilization. This system was developed for those patients who do not have enough bone to allow for full sized implants to be placed or those that are seeking an option with a much lower cost than traditional implant treatment.

The 3M MDI system consists of miniature titanium implants that are placed quickly and easily in my office with local anesthesia. There is no surgery and no healing period. After placement, we can usually use your existing denture which is fitted with small attachments to seat the denture onto the implants. This is all accomplished in one appointment. You are able to eat that day! This system is a product of 3M, one of the most respected companies in the world, and is FDA approved. You will be able to eat comfortably, laugh and talk with confidence. Your denture feels secure and is being held firmly in place without slipping or messy adhesives. All of this is available at an extremely low price.
