We want our patients to enjoy reliable, comfortable oral function and beautiful smiles. With dental implants, we can replace one missing tooth or secure dentures in place. A dental implant is a biocompatible titanium post that is inserted into your jawbone and functions as an artificial tooth root. Dental implants can improve your overall quality of life and provide the following benefits:

  • Look and feel natural
  • Allow you to speak normally
  • Eliminate dietary restrictions due to difficulty with chewing
  • Prevent bone loss after a tooth has been removed
  • Secure loose dentures, eliminating the need for adhesives
  • Reduce risk for losing more teeth
  • Improve self-confidence
  • Are easy to care for and maintain

First, Dr. Judd Larson will evaluate your overall dental health and assess your bone structure. If you are a candidate for dental implants, we will surgically place your implant. Modern anesthesia techniques allow you to remain comfortable during implant placement and the surgery is even easier than having a tooth removed. The area will be allowed to heal for several weeks so that your bone can integrate with the titanium post. When healing is complete, a custom crown will be placed or your denture will be modified so it can be secured in place.
