Bone tissue will no longer continue to resorb back into the body if it’s being stimulated by a prosthetic root, which is exactly what implants are designed to do.

Missing Single Tooth

With the help of a single titanium implant and porcelain crown, we can fill the gap in your smile. Our office uses porcelain because of it’s incredibly similar qualities to natural tooth enamel.

Missing Multiple Teeth

The best way to replace multiple consecutive teeth is via a dental bridge retained with implants. Instead of removing enamel from neighboring teeth to anchor the bridge, an implant is placed on either side of the gap. In most cases, two implants are sufficient to hold a restoration consisting of two or more crowns.

In the long-term, this results in lower costs compared to more traditional methods.
