Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a preferred method for replacing missing teeth because they’re actually attached to your jawbone, compared to removable appliances like bridges or dentures. This means they fit and function like natural teeth for your comfort and convenience. There are also many other reasons to choose dental implants:
- They improve not only the appearance of your smile, but your confidence too.
- They can last for decades with proper care.
- They allow you to chew and speak more easily.
- They stop your surrounding teeth from moving into the empty space, which can increase your risk of tooth decay.
- They can be brushed and flossed just like your other teeth—no special care needed!
- They promote bone health by preventing your jawbone from deteriorating.
- They prevent your face from sagging, which can occur when you are missing teeth.

How Do Dental Implants Work?
A dental implant is titanium post, resembling a screw or cylinder, that we surgically place in your jaw. During this procedure, we use the appropriate anesthesia/sedation so that you are kept comfortable. The biocompatible dental implant then fuses with your jawbone to form a strong foundation that acts as the root of your replacement tooth. This healing process is called osseointegration, and it can take a few weeks to a few months.
After the dental implant has properly fused, we then create, fit, and place a restoration on top. This restoration is a crown that resembles the appearance and feel of a natural tooth. Once the procedure is complete, you’ll have an artificial tooth that blends in seamlessly with your other teeth!
What is Denture Stabilization?
Denture stabilization is the technique of using mini dental implants to better secure dentures. We place these mini dental implants in a minimally invasive procedure that takes just one appointment. The mini dental implants then snap together with your dentures. This allows you to enjoy more comfortable dentures that fit better and eliminate the need for adhesives. Denture stabilization with mini dental implants is also a more affordable option compared to traditional dental implants.
