Eat What You Want To Eat… Not What You Can Eat! Smile Again!

There is nothing worse than having teeth that do not stay in when you are eating or talking or not enough teeth to eat what you want to eat. 


Does your confidence lack because of your teeth slipping down or falling out?

Do you wish you could smile more and enjoy time with others more?

Do you wish you could eat foods that you love? 


Many people hold back from laughing or smiling because they are uncomfortable with their smile.  Modern dental technologies – including dental implants – can put the smile back on your face and in your life!

When both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a beautiful porcelain ceramic crown. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.  This results in immediately full functioning teeth, shorter treatment time and minimized pain.

This procedure normally includes a few to the dentist.  The implant is placed.  At this time, a temporary tooth may be provided so you never have to go without teeth.  The implant will need a few months to integrate into the bone before the next step is taken.  The final step is the placement of the attachment (known as the abutment) and the permanent porcelain ceramic tooth.  It looks and functions like a beautiful new natural tooth.  You will need to take care of the tooth like your natural teeth and see your dentist regularly for preventive maintenance.

If you are missing more than one tooth, an implant bridge may be a great option.  Having dental implants replacing your lost back teeth will give you new, unparalleled strength and stability that allows you to eat what you want.  It will also preserve your jawbone and facial appearance.

Are you tired of your dentures keeping you from eating or smiling?  Dental implants may be the perfect answer for more stability and function with your existing or new dentures. The implants help keep the denture in place and provide better function and comfort.  Smile again from the inside out!
