Dental Implants and Restoration

The preferred choice for tooth replacement are dental implants. When replacing missing teeth, it is important to get something as close to natural teeth as possible. Dental implants replace the entire missing tooth and preserve the supporting bone.

Dental implants are considered the preferred choice over fixed bridges or removable dentures for patients who qualify as candidates, and are the most state-of-the-art technology in dentistry.

The Only Treatment that Preserves Bone

Implant-supported bridges will replace some of your tooth root, helping to stimulate the bone, preserve it,  and prevent bone loss that would naturally occur with tooth loss.  

No Compromise to the Health of Adjacent Teeth

Unlike bridges, dental implants do not sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth, because neighboring teeth are not altered to support the implant. Dental implants leave your own teeth untouched, a significant long-term benefit to your oral health! 

Better Long-Term Prognosis than Bridges

The ADA quotes a 10 year average life span for bridges while documented clinical studies show 95%+ success for a 20-50 year average life span for implants.

More Cost Effective than Other Treatment Options

Implants are more expensive initially than other forms of tooth replacement, but overtime are more cost effective because they have a much longer life span and better long-term prognosis.
