Dental Implants

You Don’t Have to Live With Missing Teeth!

Are you embarrassed about missing or damaged teeth? You are not alone. Over 100 million adults are missing teeth.

The base of an implant is a small rod made of titanium that a dentist inserts into your lower or upper jaw bone. This stands in for the root structure of a natural tooth. Once your bone fills in around the rod, it acts as a sturdy foundation for an over-denture, bridge, or crown.

Dental implants require the same care as normal teeth, so you will need to continue dental cleanings every six months. These check-ups, along with good oral hygiene habits like brushing and flossing, can help your implants last a lifetime.
