Dental implants are permanent anchors that integrate with the jawbone to provide a stable base for long-term tooth replacement. Customized crowns (the teeth) are then attached to the implants.
Because dental implants become part of the jaw, they look and feel like natural teeth. They don’t move or slip around while you eat or talk.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Get A Long-Term Solution
Dental implants can last a lifetime, one of the best investments for long-term tooth replacement with a 95% success rate.
Eat and Talk with Comfort
Dental implants look, feel, and function like real teeth. You’ll be able to eat your favorite foods, talk with comfort, and smile with confidence again.
No Daily Removal
With Dental implants, no need to remove them to reapply adhesives. You can wake up and go about your day without worrying about your teeth.
Prevent Bone Loss
Dental implants provide stimulation that keeps the jawbone from deteriorating. It helps to avoid a sunken-in appearance around the mouth that can make you look older.

How much do implants cost and does insurance cover the cost?
A. In general, the cost of replacing a single tooth with a dental implant is almost the same as replacing it with a regular fixed bridge. Dental implant treatment may qualify for some insurance coverage, but situations vary. The cost will vary by patient needs, bone quantity, and region. A Dentist will make an assessment based on your unique needs.
What is the success rate of dental implants?
A. It varies from individual to individual and with health. For a healthy individual with good oral hygiene and good health, dental implants are predictably successful with reported success rates above 90-95 percent.
Are dental implants removable like dentures or do they stay in your mouth?
A. No, dental implants are fixed solidly in the bone and allow teeth to be replaced in a manner that is closest to natural teeth.
