Models - 54Having missing or visibly bad teeth isn’t something anyone should be saddled with. It becomes a stigma. You don’t want to open your mouth and you don’t want to see your face as you brush your teeth in the morning. Is this you?

If so, you need to consider dental implants. Dental implants provide a safe, effective way to restore your teeth to their original state. Dental implants are permanent; once they are implanted you will never know they are there. But now when you look in the mirror you will like the smile you see.

Dental implants are cost effective, as most dental plans cover the procedure. We will discuss this with you when you are making your decisions about whether or not to have implants.


The first step of the process is to see if you are a candidate for the procedure. If the tooth, or teeth, have been absent for a period of time it might be more difficult or impossible to put implants in their place because of bone loss and other factors. This can be remedied with bone grafting.


If you are a candidate for dental implants the doctor will discuss the procedure, the cost, and if you will need to take time off work to complete the process.

The procedure is done in a step-by-step method with time in between each of the steps to allow for healing of the gums and to ensure that the implant post is adhering to the bone.


The last step in the process is placing you new teeth. These teeth will be made especially for you. The color of the implant will match the color of your other original teeth; no one will be able to tell them apart. You will have the freedom of your complete set of teeth, and a dazzling smile to go with it.
