Giving You Reasons to Smile Again
Dental Implant Benefits
Dental implants are the ideal way to replace lost teeth. From a missing front tooth, where it’s most visible, to a missing side tooth, and back tooth, where they provide stability to chew a full variety of foods, implants can help you recapture a beautiful and healthy smile.

How Dental Implants Work
Unlike bridges or removable dentures, which sit on top of the gums, dental implants are placed under the gums. The “tooth” placed on an implant appears life-like, because it comes through the gums just like the original did – it’s like growing a new tooth! Implants can be used to replace a single tooth or several teeth. Even people with no teeth can benefit from these permanent false teeth, because they can replace their dentures with teeth that don’t move around when they talk and don’t need to be taken out at night. Because we handle the entire process from dental implant placement to crown fabrication, there’s no need to be referred to another office.
Overdentures – No More Messy Denture Adhesives!
People who wear dentures will tell you that the worst part is having their teeth slip, tilt, or slide while they’re eating. They have to use denture adhesive to try to keep their teeth from moving around. This is a major irritant for them. But now, at Infinite Smiles, we offer our denture patients an alternative – overdentures.
With the use of just a few dental implants to support the dentures, your teeth will be “locked” into place so they won’t move. Yet they easily snap off for teeth cleaning. Say goodbye to messy creams! Ask us if you are a candidate for overdentures!
