Today, if you lose one or more teeth, you now have options beyond bridges and partial dentures. One of those options is dental implants. Dental implants are titanium fixtures that are surgically screwed into the jaw bone and are used to anchor natural-looking false teeth. Since the bone grows around the implant, the result is a smile that not only looks completely natural, but one that feels and functions more like your own teeth.
If you have lost more than one tooth, dental implants are an excellent way to have them all replaced in one procedure. One implant can hold more than one tooth. Even if you are missing most or all of your teeth, implants can anchor new porcelain teeth to give you a healthy bite and an attractive smile.

If you have been using dentures or a removable bridge, you know that they can be annoying and can become loose and unstable. Dental implants can anchor a permanent bridge. Once they are established, you will not feel the implants in your jaw, but they will provide two excellent benefits:
- They fill the gaps left in the jawbone by missing teeth, thus preventing bone shrinkage
- They strongly anchor porcelain teeth which will never be loose or stained.
