Although people are keeping their teeth longer and longer, part of our population still has to deal with missing teeth. For those who've always hoped for something better, dental implants are a wonderful improvement. A titanium implant (or several implants) is surgically inserted into the jaw. After healing, a new crown or bridge can be made that attaches to the implant. It is stable, comfortable, and as close to natural teeth as you can get.

Partial denture wearers can give up their removable dental appliances and have comfortable, stable bridgework with the use of implants. A single missing tooth can be replaced with an implant, so that the adjacent teeth do not have to be cut down for bridgework.
If you wear dentures and implants are not appropriate, mini dental implants may be the solution. Mini dental implants are miniature titanium alloy implants that act like the roots of your teeth. Learn more about mini dental implants.
