Dental Implants for Teeth Replacement
Losing one or more of your teeth creates a gap in your smile, affects your ability to chew properly, and can alter your diet and nutrition. While these are all serious issues, did you know that tooth loss also causes bone loss?

Dental Implant Therapy
When a tooth is lost, the jawbone beneath it begins to shrink (or atrophy) and becomes brittle from lack of exercise. Not only does losing a tooth affect your smile, it also changes the shape of your face causing you to look prematurely aged.
Benefits of Dental Implants

- Stops bone loss
- Maintains your youthful appearance
- Restores your natural smile
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the new standard of care for tooth replacement. They are secured into the bone to provide permanent support for crowns and dentures.
Our implants are lightweight, strong, biocompatible and make from titanium, the most widely used material in implant dentistry. Restore and maintain your natural smile with individual dental implants, implant-supported fixed bridges, or implant-supported dentures.
Mini Dental Implants (MDIs)
Mini Dental Implants(MDIs) are smaller than traditional dental implants and are placed directly into the jawbone. Because they are slimmer, about 1.8mm in width, they can be placed by Dr. Gregg in just a few hours and may sometimes be used when there is not adequate bone for a traditional implant. On the same day they are placed, mini dental implants can secure a denture, partial, or even single tooth replacement.
