Repair Your Smile With Implants

As a patient of Northside Family Dentistry, you can be confident that your dental implants will be indistinguishable from your natural teeth. As a matter of fact, many of our patients tell us that their friends and family can’t tell the difference between their natural teeth and their dental implants. Implants are a durable long-term alternative to traditional bridges, dentures, or partials. They provide exceptional support for crowns, bridges, and dentures, and they’re the preferred method of securing these types of prostheses for restorative dentistry.
