Single Tooth Implants

Single tooth implants are the most reliable and authentic way to replace a single missing tooth. The implant itself is first placed directly into the gums. It is then allowed to heal to the jaw bone. Once it is healed, a permanent replacement crown is attached. This crown acts as your tooth and will help you chew, smile, and more.

All On 6 Dental Implants

Do you need a full arch or full mouth solution? Our All On 6 dental implant option is designed to replace an entire arch of teeth using just six implants! The implants are placed strategically to support a full arch restoration. This allows the user to avoid the hassle of placing a full arch of implants and dramatically reduces healing time.

Implant Retained Dentures

Implant retained dentures are a more stable and secure option when compared to removable dentures. These dentures are supported by dental implants that are placed in the jaw. The denture then simply clicks into place. This is keep your teeth from moving around on you like removable dentures sometimes do.
