Which Dental Implant Treatment
is Right for You?
The visible part of the dental implant that mimics the appearance of a natural tooth.
Titanium rods that serve as new "roots," providing unparalleled stability for your dentures or crowns.
25% of your jawbone is LOST in the 1st year of a missing tooth
The longer a tooth is missing, the greater the amount of bone loss, causing you to look prematurely aged. Dental implants maintain bone volume and density levels over many years and when properly cared for, implants can last the rest of your life. That's what makes them such a good value.

Your Guide to Denture and Implant Options
Navigating the world of dental options can be overwhelming, especially when considering the type of dentures that are right for you. From conventional denture options to implant and denture solutions, the cost and effectiveness can vary widely. If you're particularly interested in implanted dentures, you might be curious about snap-in dentures cost or the benefits of palateless dentures. Typically, the cost of a palateless denture depends on how many implants are needed to secure the upper denture or partial dentures in place. Unlike regular dentures, implant-supported dentures offer a more natural feel, almost like your own natural teeth, and often come in a horseshoe shape for added comfort. Regardless of the type you choose, proper care of your dentures requires regular maintenance to ensure they continue to work efficiently. Explore our options and find the solution that best fits your lifestyle and dental health needs.

WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
A dental implant is a titanium screw that serves as the foundation to replace a tooth or teeth. Implant and denture solutions integrate seamlessly, offering a perfect blend of functionality and aesthetics.
There are 3 parts to a dental implant:
Implant post (or body) - this is the foundation. It is placed in the jaw and acts as anchor.
Abutment - this piece connects the implant post and crown
Crown - this is the visible portion in the mouth. This could also be an implant bridge across multiple implants.
HOW DOES THE PROCESS WORK?
Placement of implant post in jaw

Attach crown and abutment to implant body
After being thoroughly numbed, the implant body (the titanium screw) is surgically placed in your jaw. The implant body is made of surgical-grade titanium (the same material used in hip and knee replacements), which means your bone will fuse with it over a 4-6 month period (a process known as osseointegration).
Once the dental implant is properly integrated, we will take impressions to have your abutment and crown fabricated. The crown is the part of the implant tooth that you actually see in the mouth and the abutment is the support piece that connects the crown to the implant body.
