  • Dental Implants can be used to replace a single tooth, a few teeth, or to secure a denture on the top and bottom of your mouth
  • Dental Implants are fixed in place so they do not move.  This means there is no slipping or clicking like you experience with dentures
  • They look and function like natural teeth and dental implants are the closest thing to natural teeth.
  • With dental implants you can eat all the foods that you love.  Juicy steak anyone?
  • Dental Implants have a 95%  success rate so they are a reliable solution to replacing missing teeth
  • Dental Implant can be placed in your mouth without impacting other healthy teeth. The same isn’t true with a dental bridge.  A dental bridge requires the filling down of healthy adjacent teeth.
  • Dental implants provide a long term solution to your dental problems, often lasting a lifetime.  In many instances traditional bridges usually must be replaced, sometime within five years.
  • With dental implants you avoid the hassle, pain, and embarrassment of dentures and missing teeth.
