Why choose implants?
Dental implants are, in general, a more expensive option for replacing a tooth, however, often the superior benefits offset this extra cost. Lasting up to 20 years, implants are actually stronger than your natural teeth. As they do not require other teeth for support, implants are a more popular option than bridgework.
Ideal candidates for implants

In order for a dental implant to be a viable long term option, the patient must commit to an excellent oral hygiene regime and commit to regular dentist visits.
