For a patient who is missing one or more permanent teeth, our dentists may recommend dental implants. A dental implant is a restoration that replaces both the missing tooth and its root. A dental implant is made up of a titanium post, which fuses with the jawbone, and a dental restoration, like a dental crown or bridge.

What can dental implants do for you?

Improve your speech
Allow you to eat properly
Improve your comfort
Improve your oral health
Provide a durable replacement for a lost tooth.

Can anyone get dental implants?


To have dental implants placed, you should have healthy gums and enough jawbone structure to support the implant. In addition, you must be committed to proper oral hygiene and regular dental appointments. There are other things to consider as well. Talk to our dentists to see if dental implants are right for you.

How do I care for my dental implants?


Care for your dental implants the same way that you care for your natural teeth. Brush them twice a day and floss them once a day, along with your natural teeth. Rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash. Be sure to visit us at least twice a year for your professional teeth cleaning.
