Discovering Implants: Are They Right For You?

John Highsmith, DDS

Today the process of placing implants is a combination of art and skill, designed to replace natural teeth with a durable synthetic root and crown to restore functionality and form.

Under proper conditions, dental implants can last a lifetime and transform a mouth damaged by a missing tooth or teeth as a result of injury or disease. Implant retained dentures can offer a more dependable solution to removable dentures, with stability you can always trust.

Outstanding results are achieved by placing an artificial tooth root into the jaw and finishing with a customized crown designed to mimic the look, color, and feel of surrounding natural teeth.


  • Replace one or more missing teeth with a singular crown or bridge.
  • Make dentures fit more comfortably and securely.
  • Create a fuller, enhanced appearance for added confidence.
  • Do away with dietary restrictions and enjoy a sizzling steak instead of fish.

Dental implants have been helping people enjoy fuller, healthier smiles for decades. Now’s the time to find out how implants can help you stop missing out on life because of missing teeth.
