We can help you get the dentistry you need, even if you don’t have insurance
Dental Implants are the best solution for replacing missing teeth because of their look, function and durability. The implant essentially replaces the entire tooth, from the root to the crown, creating a strong and beautiful replacement. Because the implants are placed inside and fused to the jawbone, your facial structure will be preserved, helping maintain a youthful appearance. Your dental implant can last you a lifetime if cared for properly!
The process for getting your dental implant takes a few months, but a smile that lasts a lifetime is well worth it. First, the implant itself, a titanium post, is placed into the jawbone. Then, in a process called osseointegration, the implant is fused with your jawbone, creating a strong and natural bond. Healing time for your implant can take anywhere between three and six months. Once your implants have fused and healed, an abutment will be placed that will act as a foundation for your replacement tooth.
Your new dental implant will look and feel just like a natural tooth. You will be able to speak, eat and laugh with confidence in your new smile! Caring for your implant is just like caring for your natural teeth with regular brushing, flossing and dental checkups.
Dental Implant FAQ’s
- What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a small, titanium post that is inserted into your jawbone to act as a natural tooth root which will provide a sturdy base for your final restorative tooth. A dental implant can replace one or all of your teeth.
- Am I a candidate for dental implants?
If you have one or more missing teeth, it is likely you are a candidate for dental implants. Dental implants require healthy gums and adequate bone density. During your consultation it will be decided if you are a good candidate and what your options are for dental implants.

- What is All-On-4 technology?
The All-On-4 teeth replacement technology is an advanced procedure which allows our patients to leave our office with a brand new smile in just one office visit. Your new smile is carefully designed and crafted individually for you in a laboratory and then when it is finished, it will be placed in just one office visit.

Because only four implants are needed, All-On-4 is a more budget-friendly option!
Why Dental Implants?
Dental implants will preserve your facial structure and prevent the “sunken in” look that happens when teeth are missing for an extended period of time.
Dental implants will give you the confidence to smile, laugh and eat whatever you want!
They are permanent! With proper care, your dental implants should last you a lifetime, meaning you will never have to replace them!
Are Dental Implants For Me?
If you have missing teeth, you are most likely a candidate for dental implants. However, dental implants do require a certain amount of bone tissue and density for proper placement. In cases where there may not be enough, we may suggest a bone graft to achieve enough bone density for an implant.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
Dental implants may be the more expensive option for replacing missing teeth, but a dental implant is just a one-time fee that will provide you with a beautiful smile for the rest of your life. Dentures or dental bridges require constant maintenance and replacements, which adds up over the years. The benefits a dental implant provide far outweigh the cost – a dental implant is priceless.
