What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the modern choice for tooth replacement. They’re the only option that’s directly anchored to the jawbone for a secure fit and natural appearance. The implant fixture takes the place of the natural tooth’s root in the jawbone and is used as a foundation for attaching your replacement tooth or set of teeth.

Why Choose Dental Implants for Tooth Replacement?

There’s no better tooth replacement solution than dental implants. They secure your tooth restoration so it won’t slip out of place when you chew or speak. Implant-supported restorations are permanent, long-lasting, and they help protect the health of your entire mouth, something that no other tooth loss solution can do.

Our Dental Implant Solutions

Dental implants can be used to attach many types of tooth restorations to replace one or more missing teeth.

Single Tooth Replacement

We can replace a single missing tooth with a crown attached to a dental implant. This is the ideal treatment when you’re missing one tooth or several teeth throughout your smile.

Multiple Tooth Replacement

If you’re missing several neighboring teeth, a custom-made multi-tooth bridge or partial denture secured by dental implants is often the best treatment choice.

Full Arch Replacement

Patients who are missing all or most of their natural teeth can have them replaced with a specially designed denture. This denture is supported by several dental implants for a secure fit.

Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?

If you’d like to replace your missing teeth with the most comfortable, natural-looking option available, dental implants may be the option for you. Candidates for dental implants are missing one or more teeth and have the desire not only to restore their smile but also invest in a permanent solution that will maintain their oral health as well.

Our Dental Implant Process

Your dental implant journey begins with a consultation with Dr. Heffelfinger so he can get an idea of your goals, needs, and dental health. He’ll sit down with you, explain all of your treatment options, and create a customized treatment plan to achieve your ideal smile.
