What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are attached directly to your jawbone, making them fully functioning and stable tooth loss solutions. The implant fixture is finished with a customized dental crown for a natural-looking and durable restoration. We also offer All-On-X implants, which can replace multiple teeth with implant-supported prosthetics arches.
Dental implants offer various short- and long-term benefits to your oral and general health. With implant fixtures, you can improve your confidence and enjoy your favorite foods without worrying about your restorations coming loose.

Candidacy for Dental Implants
Patients missing one or more teeth may benefit from a dental implant solution. Dr. Klym typically recommends implant fixtures to patients with:
- Missing teeth
- Ill-fitting dental bridges or dentures
- Severely decayed teeth
- Irreparably damaged teeth
To qualify for dental implants, patients must have sufficient jawbone density and good oral health. Because tooth loss usually results in jawbone deterioration, some patients may need to undergo a supplemental procedure before receiving implants.
