The best way to replace missing or severely damaged teeth
Missing teeth present a serious problem to your oral and whole body health. When a tooth is missing or severely damaged, the rest of your mouth is unable to function normally, creating a range of additional oral health concerns.
Enter dental implants — the best way to replace missing or critically damaged teeth. By replacing the root of your tooth, dental implants completely mimic your natural tooth. This brings support and stability to your mouth and ensures a healthy smile and body.

Dental Implants FAQs
Why should I choose dental implants over a fixed bridge or dentures?
While bridges and dentures are a great choice for some patients and do a fantastic job of replacing the visible part of your teeth, they do not replace the root of your tooth. Implants replace the root, ensuring that no bone loss occurs or stability issues develop with surrounding teeth.
How will my life be affected by dental implants?
Once your dental implant has been set and has healed, you can go on living your life like you always have. The only care that is needed is maintaining positive oral health best practices such as brushing and flossing regularly, and coming to twice-yearly dental exams and cleanings.
