Welcome to Landmark Dentistry! We are passionate about serving our patients—we treat the whole family from cleanings to implants!

As a leading provider in implant dentistry, we are so glad you are considering the option of dental implants.

Many people are missing teeth due to accidents, disease, or other conditions—but at Landmark Dentistry, dental implants offer a natural, secure, and stable solution.

If you are embarrassed to smile due to missing teeth, want to keep your neighboring teeth stable or are finding that your dentures or partials cannot stay in place – you may be interested in Dental implants.

How do Dental Implants Work?

First a titanium post, which is the material that works best with the body, is surgically placed in the jawbone. The procedure is quick, you can drive yourself, and there is minimal discomfort afterwards. The bone doesn’t feel much and the area of gum that was worked on is just a little sore for the day.

The implant will take about 3-4 months to fuse to the jawbone for the most stable foundation. You will have impressions done for the lab to craft you a stunning porcelain zirconia crown, your new tooth!

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Increase self-esteem, confidence, ability to speak in public- a whole new you!
  • Prevent damage to the surrounding teeth, other teeth can shift and become loose
  • Dentures and Partials can be securely fastened to the implants for improved speaking and eating
  • Replacing missing teeth with implants prevents jaw from shrinking and collapsing, Provides a more youthful appearance

According to the ADA, American Dental Association, more than five million implants have been successfully placed.
