Dental Implant Center

The Dental Implant Center specializes in dental implants as a solution for the millions of people who have permanently lost a tooth or several teeth and who use dentures. Implants, made of materials that are compatible with human bone and tissue, provide artificial teeth that look natural and feel secure. They also can be used to attach full or partial dentures.

The facility offers a range of implant systems and procedures, including hard and soft tissue grafting. Surgery is performed in the Oral Surgery Center, which is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care. State-of-the-art CT scanning and computer analysis are available to evaluate implant placement.
