Implant dentistry can provide a functional, long-lasting solution for individuals missing a single tooth or several teeth. Whether you have lost teeth due to decay, trauma, gum disease, or other reasons, dental implants may be a viable option for replacing teeth with results that can look and feel natural.

The first step in finding out if dental implants are right for you is attending a consultation with our dentist Kevin Sands, DDS. Dr. Sands will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and jaw to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants.

Dr. Sands will also ask several questions about your physical health and medical history.

Good candidates for dental implants typically go on to enjoy exceptional results from their dental implant restorations. Most patients report that their dental implants look, feel and function just like natural teeth.
