We specialize in dental implants along with treatment and prevention of periodontal disease. Using the latest technology, we work in conjunction with your general dentist to provide you with the best overall dental care. Our experienced staff works together as a team to give you exceptional quality treatment in a comfortable, professional environment.

Dental implants are artificial roots that are placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. They are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or other reasons. While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support.

Periodontal disease is a chronic inflammatory disease of the surrounding structures to the teeth. It is often silent, meaning symptoms, particularly pain, may not appear until an advanced stage of the disease. However, you should still be on the lookout for the signs and symptoms of the disease.
