Getting an implant involves a minor surgical procedure, during which your dentist will insert the implants into your jawbone. Be sure to follow the post-operative care instructions we provide you with to ensure a comfortable recovery.

What are implants made out of?

Dental implants are made from titanium. This metal is biocompatible, which means that it bonds with the surrounding tissue once surgically implanted. Your implant will fuse with your jawbone to replace missing tooth roots and provide natural stability for your replacement tooth.

What happens if I don’t get an implant?

Missing teeth make it difficult to properly eat your food, leading to digestive problems and nutritional deficiencies. After you lose a tooth, your jaw will also begin to shrink, which will cause your facial muscles to sag.

Can teens get Invisalign?

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign orthodontic aligners are transparent and are barely noticeable when you speak or smile.

This makes Invisalign an excellent choice for busy adults or teens involved in sports activities in which metal braces present challenges.
