Patients with missing teeth often forego the tooth replacement process out of fear that they will receive an unnatural looking replacement, dentures that slip and slide, or experience additional pain or discomfort. Dental implants offer many patients a safe, effective tooth replacement option that leaves them with flawless, natural looking smiles. In the past two decades, innovations in the dental implant supported tooth replacement process have made it possible for more patients than ever before to be considered good candidates for this restorative treatment. Still, there is no such thing as a one size fits all solution when it comes to dental care.

Instead, your general dentist or orthodontist can provide a comfortable, clear alternative – Invisalign. This clear alignment tray orthodontic system allows patients to achieve their perfectly aligned smiles without having to worry about the impact on their personal or professional images.
