Dental Implants

Dental implants are becoming an increasingly popular method for replacing missing teeth. In this procedure, titanium supports are surgically placed within your jawbone, and act as an anchor for naturally looking false teeth. Dental implants are not only used for individual tooth replacement, but can also be used when replacing multiple teeth as an alternative to dentures.

Advantages of dental implants

  • Implants are extremely natural looking AND the adjacent, healthy teeth do not need to be altered...(ie Bridge work)
  • Fusion of the implants into your jaw make them very stable and comfortable compared to traditionally dentures
  • They last a lifetime 

Types of implants
Your dentist will be able to tell you which of the three types of implants is right for you:


  • Root form implant: This is the most common type of implant where the screw is shaped like the root of a tooth.
  • Mini screw type Implants. This is a relatively new design of implant that PAINLESSLY!!screws into the Jawbone like a screw does into wood. In most cases a tooth can be connected to the implant the same day (immediate loading.) This is also the most cost-effective type of single tooth implant. This type of implant can also be used to solidly anchor dentures. NO MORE LOOSE DENTURES!!!! ASK!!!!!
