For many people, implants are an alternative to conventional crowns and bridges. Implants are integrated into your jaw to support a prosthesis, so that the fit may feel more natural and secure. To be considered for an implant, you must be healthy, and have adequate bone support or undergo extensive surgery for bone grafting.

Implants which support crowns, bridges, and dentures consist of a variety of configurations, and can be utilized immediately or completed many months later.

A well-made and maintained/cared for implant can last for a lifetime.

Beyond the integrated fit and function of an implant retained prosthesis, the preservation of bone in the jaw is a major benefit of implant technology. Another advantage of the use of implants is the retention of extraoral maxillofacial prostheses which historically were held in place by cement.
