Benefits of having dental implants:

  • Cosmetic – Dental implants look like real teeth and provide a nearly permanent solution for missing or damaged teeth.
  • Comfort – Dental implants are inserted directly into the bone and integrate with it. This results in an incredibly stable tooth.
  • Lasting performance – Dental implants are manufactured from extremely durable materials and with the proper care, can last a very long time.
  • Confidence – Many patients who choose to have dental implants experience and increase in confidence and self-esteem.

What to expect from Dental Implants


Our dental implant procedure consists of placing a Titanium cylinder directly into the jawbone. This cylinder must be left in the jaw for a duration of up to several months or until it has fused with the bone. After the implant has fused to the jawbone, a metal post is inserted into the cylinder, and a crown is cemented to the top of the post. Once the procedure is complete, you can enjoy having full functionality to the tooth.
