Comfortable, natural, long-term solutions for missing teeth.

Are you missing one or more teeth and feeling too embarrassed to smile without covering your mouth? Implant dentistry gives you a whole new set of options for replacing one or more missing teeth – and smiling with confidence.

Without implants, you lose jawbone tissue

Most people who wear full dentures or partial dentures don’t realize that they begin losing jawbone tissue as soon as their teeth are lost. When you lose teeth, your jawbone can shrink, giving your face an older, tired, sunken look. Dental implants, however, actually stimulate jawbone tissue growth by placing titanium screws in the bone itself. This stimulates a process called osseointegration, where bone tissue expands and fuses to the implant while it stops the shrinking effect.

Eat whatever you want

Like your natural teeth, dental implants are strong, stable, and secure, so you can comfortably eat and chew all of your favorite foods (apples or steak, anyone?). Advances in implant dentistry technology, techniques and materials have made it possible for you to feel and function completely as if you have your own natural teeth.

No more tooth decay or root canals

Dental implant restorations don’t get cavities, never need drilling and never need root canal treatment. The titanium screws used for dental implants don’t get infected like natural tooth roots, either.

A long-term, permanent solution

Dental implants from Nobel Biocare are designed to be a long-lasting solution for your missing teeth. With proper care and maintenance, these quality dental implants can last for decades or even a lifetime. And unlike dentures which must be relined periodically to accommodate your shrinking jawbone tissue, implants stay fixed in place while you sleep, which is far more convenient for most people.

Greater self-confidence

With implant dentistry, you can have a beautiful new smile, which can give you back the confidence you may have lost. Implant dentistry can dramatically transform and improve your daily life.
