Dental Implants


                    A dental implant is an option to replace a missing tooth. In this procedure, a small

                    titanium shaftis surgically implanted into the bone and allowed to set. The bone

                    grows around it forming  a tight connection, which additionally slows or stops the

                    bone loss that occurs when the root of a natural tooth is missing. Once the 

                    implant  is firmly set in the mouth, the dentist then work to attach 

                    replacement tooth onto the top of the shaft. This permanent solution

                    has the advantages over bridge work that it does not stress the surrounding teeth

                    or also be used as support as part of an implant bridge. This is an alternative

                   to partial dentures, and has several advantages. First, there is no adjustment

                   period to acclimatize the patient who, once thework is done, only feels teeth, not

                   metal supports intruding into the mouth. Second, this slows the bone loss

                   occasioned by missing teeth. Third, there is no discomfort or difficulty in eating.

                   Best of all, of course, they don't have to be taken out all the time. We also offer

                   mini dental implants.These implants are about half the diameter of traditional

                   implants are used mainly tostabilize lower dentures. These implants can be 

                  placed one appointment and be immediatelyused. The cost is 50-70% of standard 

                  dental implants. Call for a consultation
