Schedule Consultation

There Are More Than 178 Million Americans Living With Missing Teeth

Missing one or more teeth due to gum disease, injury or decay is common. Beyond cosmetic concerns, even one missing tooth can pose a health risk if left untreated. Many people are turning to the modern solution for tooth loss through dental implants. Dental implants have quickly become the gold standard in tooth replacement for as little as one, or as many as all, of your teeth. For most patients, dental implants are a reliable, proven tooth replacement solution that not only replaces teeth with a natural look and feel, but also reverses the effects of bone loss.

Intro to Dental Implants

“Dental implants are a very good option that we know is going to last long term.”
Doctor Dale Spencer

As one of less than 400 Diplomates of the American Board of Oral Implantology and is a Fellow with the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, Dr. Spencer is uniquely qualified to place dental implants.

Look Younger and Improve Your Oral Health With Dental Implants

Bone loss can cause drastic changes in the smile and facial features, and put you at even further risk of tooth loss. As the bone recedes from lack of stimulation from natural teeth, facial structure can change and surrounding teeth can become loose. Dental implants can reverse this effect, essentially taking years off your appearance, because they act as the root and crown of teeth. With dental implants you can regain your smile and eat and speak with renewed confidence. Take advantage of these benefits with dental implants:

  • Permanent smile solution, with proper care
  • Prevent further bone loss to protect remaining healthy teeth
  • Stable and reliable, no slipping or clicking like traditional solutions
  • Look and feel like natural teeth

Precision Planning Leads to Successful Results


Dental implants use a titanium post that resembles a screw that is implanted directly into your jaw bone to provide the same natural stimulation as your original tooth. On top of this post is an abutment that connects to a natural-looking crown above the gum line. Dr. Dale Spencer takes advantage of 3D imaging and surgical implant guides in his office to achieve optimal results and reduced healing time when placing dental implants. He also offers sedation dentistry for those with anxiety. With precision and accuracy, Dr. Spencer has transformed smiles for countless delighted patients with this modern, permanent, life-changing tooth replacement solution.
