From the moment our patients step into the office they will be welcomed by our patient concierge at the reception desk. They will be greeted and offered a beverage of their choice to help make them feel at ease. From the personal scent that has been customized and made exclusively for our office to the first one-on-one meet and greet session with our doctors, patients will be welcomed to our state of the art facility with open arms and open minds. We will try our best to make them feel at ease and get to know them on a much more personal level and find out what’s unique about them and their personal dental needs, wishes, or fears.

We will guide and walk them through the best possible treatment options and offer them support by providing photographic images and extensive records which will help them in their decision-making process. All of our patients will be treated like family as we pride ourselves in being a relationship-based office, and they will never be treated like just another number that we log into our digital record keeping system.

Understand Implants

Bone loss ages your face

Why choose dental implants?

Crowns, bridges and dentures address the short-term cosmetic problem of missing teeth but do nothing to stop bone loss. Crown & bridge dentistry requires grinding down healthy teeth leaving them at much greater risk for cavities and tooth failure. Bridges do not stop bone loss. Dentures become uncomfortable and unstable over time as the jawbone shrinks causing eating and speech problems.

With dental implants, healthy teeth are not compromised. Dental implants, like natural teeth, stimulate the jaw and stop bone loss. Leading dental organizations recognize dental implants as the standard of care for tooth replacement.

Treatment Options

Single Tooth Replacement

A missing tooth can be replaced by a dental implant without altering the healthy adjacent teeth. Once the implant is placed, a post (or abutment) is attached providing support for your final crown.

Multiple Teeth Replacement

If you are missing more than one tooth, dental implants may be your best treatment option. Multiple implants are placed with individual crowns or a multiple unit bridge to rejuvenate your smile.

Fixed Implant Supported Bridge

If all your upper or lower teeth are missing, a custom-made denture may be permanently secured using implants. The number of implants will vary for each patient. Your new teeth are firmly supported by the implants, stimulating the jaw and halting bone loss. Your dentist can remove the denture when needed for maintenance and cleaning.

Removable Implant Stabilized Denture

If all your lower teeth are missing, another option may be to stabilize your removable denture using a small number of implants. This can sometimes be a lower cost treatment. After healing, abutment posts
are attached to the implants. Your current denture can sometimes be modified, or a new denture can be created. Your denture is snapped into place and can be removed daily for cleaning.

What To Expect

What To Expect

Treatment Planning

Your dentist will take x-rays and create a model of your existing teeth to determine the optimal implant position. Occasionally, a bone or gum tissue graft will be necessary
to create adequate space for the implants.

Implant Placement

Dental implants are placed into the bone in a relatively painfree procedure. The bone and gums will be given time to heal before an abutment and crown are attached. In most
cases, you can receive some type of temporary teeth the same day the implant is placed.

Crown Placement

Your final crown will be placed once the implant has bonded, restoring your natural smile.


Are you a Candidate

Dental implants can be placed in most adults. Adolescents may be eligible once their facial structure has matured. Certain uncontrolled medical conditions may decrease implant treatment effectiveness, so first discuss your full medical history with your dental implant specialist. Patient results may vary. Only a trained clinician can determine the best treatment plan. Please ask your dentist to explain the benefits and risks to see if dental implants are right for you.

The value of dental implants far exceeds conventional treatment options. Insurance policies vary but most cover a portion of the restorative procedure. Financing options
