Comfort and confidence again
Would you like to speak or bite into an apple knowing your denture won’t slip? How about smiling with absolute confidence or enjoying the simple pleasure of going to bed without removing your denture? Are you missing one or more teeth? Then dental implants – artificial substitutions for natural tooth roots to which replacement teeth can be attached – may be right for you.
It’s hard to imagine, but 69% of North Americans aged 35-44 have had at least one tooth removed every year as a result of infection, gum disease, or accidents. When you lose teeth, several problems can occur. The remaining teeth can shift, rotate and become crooked. This can leave you with a bad bite and unsightly spaces, making it painful to chew food. Dental implants replace the form and function of missing whether it is one tooth or a whole jaw. They can be used to anchor dentures to prevent soreness and clicking noises when you talk, or as replacements for partial dentures and bridgework.
We can help you to decide if implants are the right solution for you. We’ll review your medical history, examine your oral tissues and take impressions and x-rays. If your dental evaluation shows that you are a good candidate for the implant procedure, you can look forward to a lifetime of smiling with comfort and confidence again.
Why not a denture or bridge?
It’s true that in most cases a denture or bridge brings back much of the form and function of missing teeth. But a natural tooth does a lot more than help you cut and grind food and give out nice smiles. It also plays an important role under the gumline where you can’t see it … something a denture simply doesn’t do.
Natural teeth need the support of the bone in your jaw. When you lose a tooth, the bone shrinks and weakens. For most people, the amount of bone loss isn’t too serious – there’s still enough to make a good solid foundation for a denture. But unfortunately for some patients, shrinking bone can trigger a number of problems. It can cause dentures to fit more loosely, making it hard to bite and chew. Underlying gum becomes sore and painful, and speech is sometimes impaired, and along with it, self-image.
Dental implants are the closest cousin to natural teeth. They are permanent false teeth anchored right into your jawbone, just like your natural teeth. They’re more stable than dentures, so you can eat with ease and comfort. Many patients find implants give them a more positive self-image and more confidence.
Dental implant treatment does require a greater investment of time and money, but in the long run, it’s well worth it.
A really amazing tooth-replacement technology
We’re devoted to ensuring you have a lifetime of happy healthy smiles. But sometimes, accidents, ill health, or just plain old wear and tear can make it very difficult, if not impossible, to save teeth. There was a time that the only solution was to replace missing teeth with dentures.
Technology has improved greatly over the years, plus the invention and perfection of secure permanent dental implants really changed the game. Now, there’s been a further development that’s really exciting – mini dental implants.
Mini implants are much smaller than conventional implants, and they can be placed safely and efficiently. A huge benefit to you … believe it or not … is that your implants and secured dentures can be placed and ready-to-go within about two hours! You can have a morning appointment and eat lunch with your new teeth on the same day!
Mini implants also cost a fraction of conventional implants, and to care for them, all you need to do is continue your regular fastidious home care and professional checkups at our practice.

Comfort and confidence again
Whether you’re missing one or all of your teeth, we have an exciting option that will help you smile with confidence again. Thousands of people are flashing smiles that have been beautified by dental implants, a fabulous tooth replacement technique that can be performed right here in our office.
Implants are made of special biomaterials that are surgically placed in the jawbone under your gumline. After a few months, the implant becomes anchored to the surrounding bone. Then, a natural-looking replacement tooth is permanently attached to the implant to replace the form and function of a real tooth. Implants can be used to stabilize dentures and bridges, replace just one tooth or to rebuild an entire jaw of missing teeth. The best part is that they look and feel just like natural teeth.
Dental implants are reliable. Patients have retained them for more than twenty years with a better than 90% success rate. Most patients can receive implant treatments right in our office. We will use a local or general anesthetic to ensure comfort during the procedure.
Dental implants have helped thousands of people to eat, smile and speak with renewed self-confidence. Patients who practice good oral home care and regular dental checkups can enjoy implants that last a lifetime. We can help you decide if a dental implant is right for you. The investment in your smile is well worthwhile.
Back to nature
Would you like to look younger, speak more clearly, and enjoy a wider selection of foods? Are you one of the 40% of denture wearers who been wearing the same appliance for more than ten years? Would you like to avoid the bone loss that is inevitable with the loss of even one tooth? Then dental implants – permanent artificial teeth – may be right for you.
Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth, improving your appearance, comfort, and self-confidence. They’ve become so popular that 500,000+ dental implants are placed every year.
If you feel self-conscious about your teeth and mouth, consider that dental implants can replace the form and function of missing teeth, whether it’s only one tooth or two … or even if it’s to replace teeth in your entire jaw. Implants can also be used to anchor dentures to prevent soreness and clicking, or as replacements for partial dentures and bridgework.
We can help you to decide if implants are right for you by reviewing your medical history, examining your oral tissues, and by taking radiographs. If your dental evaluation shows that you are a good candidate for implants, you can look forward to smiling with comfort and confidence again!
Dental implant technology
One of the most newer dental procedures is tooth implanting. They’ve helped thousands of people to eat, smile, and speak without worry.
A dental implant is a natural-looking substitute tooth that is surgically screwed or implanted in your jaw to replace missing teeth. First, the dentist places a metal anchor into your jawbone. Over a period of about six months, the bone grows around the anchor to hold it in place. The anchor is then fitted with an artificial tooth that looks and feels just like the real thing. Over time your gums heal and grow naturally around the implant.
Implants are becoming a popular alternative to dentures because they work just like real teeth. In some cases, an implant can be used to fix a removable prosthesis such as a partial denture. But implants can also make replacement for single missing teeth or gaps.
Dental implants are an exciting choice, but they aren’t for everyone. A lot depends on your particular case and how healthy your bones and gums are. If you think implants could be a good choice for you, come in and speak with us about it. We can help you weigh your options and make the right choice. Whether you’re missing one, or all of your teeth, dental implants can get you smiling again.

Dental implants can restore confidence
Anyone who has ever suffered from tooth loss can tell you about the embarrassment of constantly hiding their smile and about the social awkwardness that accompanies difficulty in speaking and chewing. Dental implants could be the answer. A dental implant is an artificial root to which an artificial tooth is attached. An implant can replace one or more teeth or permanently support a bridge or denture.
Here are some of the proven benefits of dental implants.
If you are in good general and oral health, you may be an excellent candidate for dental implants, no matter your age!
The dental implant alternative
Few people are born with a perfect smile, and years of wear and tear on your teeth can take its toll. If you want to replace a newly lost tooth or already wear dentures, dental implants may be a terrific choice to restore your more-youthful healthy smile.
An implant tooth replacement looks and feels just like tooth. Implant-supported dentures also look and behave like natural teeth, and they alleviate denture-to-gum soreness and difficulty with clicking, chewing, and speaking.
Implants also boost your self-confidence, according to a Louisiana State University study. Of 61 patients with dental implants who had previously worn dentures, 88% indicated that their confidence was improved and 89% agreed that the procedure was worth repeating.
With implants, you will be able to eat almost anything you would normally eat. You can feel confident about your smile, knowing your teeth are secure.
Be confident & flash that smile!
Let’s face it… For some of us, it’s hard to get through life without losing one or more of your adult teeth, either to a sports injury, an accident, or just plain old wear and tear. Many patients are understandably self-conscious about their missing teeth, but are not sure just what their options might be. For example, they worry that dentures will be uncomfortable or awkward to care for.
Here’s one solution that might be perfect for you. The technical term is fixed hybrid implant bridge. In essence, we strategically place four dental implants which serve as anchors for a natural-looking secure non-removable restoration. Your new smile requires nothing more than the usual daily home care and regular dental hygiene appointments that you already routinely keep. In fact, this procedure is so successful that we really must emphasize that your new teeth are absolutely secure – they are never removed and they never slip or click.
In our practice, we’re committed to ensuring that you have a healthy happy smile that you feel confident to flash in a moment’s notice. If you think you might be a candidate for this procedure, please don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation, because we really want to see you smile!
