Dental Implants

Bite into the good life with strong, secure dental implants.

Dental implants are metal posts or tooth root replacements that are surgically placed beneath the gums and secured to the jawbone. Dental implants help secure bridges, dentures and artificial teeth; since they are fused to your jaw, they won’t slip and shift in your mouth while you eat, drink, talk and laugh.

Implants are especially helpful with patients who have poor ridges, a sensitive gag reflex, or simply want the most predictable and stable tooth or teeth replacements.

While sometimes more expensive than other methods of tooth replacement, the results are long-lasting and look aesthetically natural.

Professor Per-Ingvar Branemark, who is credited with the discovery of today's root form dental implant, said,  “no-one should die lying in the bed having their teeth in the glass," referring to dentures. With the aid of dental implants no one should have to do so.
