Countless people have lost one or more teeth to tooth decay, gum disease, or injury. In the past, restoration options were limited to removable dentures and fixed bridges. Dental implants are today’s preferred way to regain a beaming smile without harming any of your healthy teeth. Almost anyone with missing teeth could be a great candidate for affordable dental implants. Could you be the owner of the next perfectly restored smile?

What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is an artificial replacement for the root of your missing natural tooth. It is inserted securely into your jawbone and topped with a natural-looking crown. The implant is made from bio-inert titanium, which reduces the risk of rejection and provides a strong foundation for the crown.

Reasons You may Need an Implant

An implant provides an ideal solution for many dental problems including the following:

  • Missing teeth
  • Cavities
  • Periodontal disease
  • Fractures
  • Loose teeth
  • Bone loss
  • Tooth pain
  • Crooked teeth
  • Loss of tooth support
  • Failed root canals
  • Poorly fitting dentures
  • Tooth injury
  • Medical problems requiring tooth extraction

7 Great Reasons to Choose Affordable Dental Implants

  1. You can say goodbye to gaps left by missing teeth.
  2. Implants are easy to maintain.
  3. Dental implants don’t form cavities.
  4. The implant procedure is simple, and you’ll recover quickly.
  5. You’ll never have to wear dentures or taste denture adhesive again.
  6. You’ll have custom-made, natural-looking, functional teeth.
  7. Dental implants will last for decades.
