Dental Implants

Smile again with confidence. Implants replace a missing tooth with a titanium post and a crown to restore your bite and prevent bone loss. They’re long-lasting, and look and function just like a natural tooth. In fact, they have the highest success rate and longest lifespan of all restorative treatment options, making them the ideal solution for missing teeth.

Dr. Friend was very kind and informative. He seems as if he genuinely cares about your well being and what's best for you. Every staff member I encountered today was very pleasant and more than willing to help any way they could.

Dr. Friend and the team were great. This was my first appointment at their office. They were on-time, friendly, and made me feel at ease. Dr. Friend took time to address each concern I had and explain everything face-to-face. A great experience!
