What are Dental Implants?

Designed to provide a solid foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel and function like natural teeth, dental implants are transforming the way people live. Patients who are seeking a long-term solution to replace missing teeth find that this treatment option gives them the stability and confidence they’ve been looking for.


People who have lost teeth due to decay or infection tend to experience facial structure changes over time and the ability to eat certain foods. Dr. Marcus has extensive specialized training in the field of implant dentistry. He has helped thousands of patients find enjoyment again in everyday activities such as normal chewing and social interactions, knowing that their replacement teeth can easily pass as natural teeth.


Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The implants will gradually bond with the jawbone over the next several months, creating the necessary anchor for your new replacement teeth. Once this is completed, the small posts are then attached to the implants and artificial teeth are placed so that these posts will not be seen.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Dr. Marcus will determine if dental implants are the optimal course of treatment given your individual case. Good candidates are generally those over the age of 18 with teeth and jaws that have completed growing. There is no age restriction that determines eligibility, but candidates should possess a healthy level of gum tissue and enough bone to support the implant posts. We have seen many post-treatment success stories with older adults who are able to eat nutrient dense foods after receiving dental implants.


How Long Does the Process Take?

The total implant procedure time varies depending on the type, amount, and health of your jawbone. The healing time required for your bone to heal will also be a factor and should not be rushed, as the ultimate goal is to have them last a lifetime. Dr. Marcus will expertly guide you as to the best solution your oral needs.

Benefits of Dental Implants

If you’ve lost one or more teeth, dental implants offer a wide range of advantages over other tooth replacement options. Here are just a few of the important benefits.

  • Rebuilds bone loss
    An experienced implant specialist such as Dr. Marcus will be able to restore missing tissue if several years have passed since your tooth loss. This is necessary for implants to fuse with the jawbone and hold your restoration in place.
  • Enhanced facial appearance
    When patients are missing teeth, they tend to look as if they have aged due to a sunken in facial structure. When dental implants are placed, they support facial muscles, making you appear healthier, more youthful, and rejuvenated.
  • Restored functionality
    Unlike traditional dentures, dental implants do not slip out of place and irritate your gums. Patients find improved comfort and chewing ability, allowing them to enjoy tastier meals with a higher nutritional value.
  • Long-term solution
    With proper care of the gum and bone tissue, dental implants are a viable long-term solution. They are designed to last for decades or life, as opposed to crowns, bridges, or dentures that may need to be replaced over time.
