With Dental Implants You Can Eat, Drink and Smile with Confidence.
For millions of people, there is an alternative to the inconvenience, discomfort and embarrassment of missing teeth. It involves replacement teeth supported by artificial tooth root substitutes called dental implants. These tooth replacements can look, feel and function like natural teeth.
Dental implants are used to solve many problems associated with tooth loss that previously required replacement by removable full or partial dentures. Dental Implants can be used to recreate the stability and function of natural teeth, providing a secure, stable foundation for one, several or a full mouth of replacement teeth. Dental Implants can restore your ability to chew, laugh and speak with confidence. Dr. John Fish is extensively trained and experienced in the use of many types of Dental Implants.

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that can look, feel, and function like natural teeth. After the implant process, our patients regain the ability to eat many of the foods that they previously had to avoid. They also learn again to smile with confidence, knowing that their teeth appear pleasing and natural. The implants themselves are titanium tooth root substitutes that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium surface, creating a strong foundation for replacement teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve facial contours by preventing the bone deterioration that normally goes along with tooth loss.
Benefits of Dental Implants:
Dental implants can look and feel like your own teeth. And because they bond to bone, they can provide a long term solution to problems associated with tooth loss.
With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing problems with speech. Dental implants can allow you to speak more clearly and with more confidence.
Because removable dentures are often unstable and mobile, they can often cause “sore spots”, especially on the lower arch. Dental implants can eliminate mobility thereby dramatically increasing denture comfort.
Better Chewing Ability
Unstable dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants can function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with greater confidence and without pain.
Dental implants can help give you back your smile and restore your confidence thereby improving your self-esteem!
Unlike conventional bridgework, Dental Implants allow us to spare your adjacent teeth, because neighboring teeth need not be altered. Your natural teeth can be left untouched. This can be a significant long term benefit. Implant supported replacement teeth have been shown by research to be more predictable than conventional bridgework.
The success rate for dental implants is extremely high. They are now considered to be the “state of the art” option for tooth replacement.
