Dental Implants Restore Your Bite
In addition to their natural appearance, dental implants are a popular tooth replacement option because they feel and function so much like your own teeth. Unlike dentures, there are no worries about embarrassing slippage with dental implants. And they give you back up to 90 percent of your natural chewing power!
Several of our dentists have received extensive training in implantology, so they can help you determine if dental implants are right for you and walk you through all your available options.
Other Tooth Replacement Options
Dental implants are a great tooth replacement solution, but they aren’t right for everyone. If implants aren’t for you, we can replace missing teeth with:
- Dentures, full or partial
- A dental bridge
We’ll Fix Your Dental Damage
We can also fix dental damage that makes it tough to enjoy eating with:
- A dental crown, which repairs a broken or cracked tooth and protects it from further damage
- A tooth filling that fixes a cavity
If a tooth is so damaged it needs to be extracted, our dentists can do that too. We can even remove wisdom teeth! We can offer dental sedation to make you more comfortable during any procedure.
