What are dental implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts that replace the root of missing teeth. Dental implants come in different sizes, heights and types. They are extremely safe and have been used in dentistry for over 40 years. Once healed, your implants will look and feel just like natural teeth! Dr. Matthew Holtan is a board-certified implant specialist, meaning that he can do both the surgical and restorative portions of the procedure himself.


Single tooth dental implants are designed for anyone who is missing one or more teeth. An implant is placed into the jawbone where the tooth will be positioned and acts as the root to the new tooth also known as a crown.

In addition to looking and functioning just like a regular tooth, implants are inserted without doing any damage to neighboring teeth. Because the single dental implant acts as a tooth root, the bone is better preserved as the dental implants join with the jawbone, keeping it healthy and intact.

Along with looking just like a normal tooth, the implant is also easy to keep clean. Having a single tooth implant will look and feel just like the natural tooth that it is replacing.


Dental Implants are a good solution for those who have lost several teeth and are looking to find a permanent fix. With implants, patients will be able to function the same way they did before losing their natural teeth. By placing only two single dental implants, you can replace up to four missing teeth.

An implant bridge is a long-lasting permanent solution for multiple missing teeth. An implant bridge looks and functions like your natural teeth and is the perfect fixed solution allowing you to avoid a removable partial denture or flipper.


An extraordinary procedure has been developed that permits the placement of 4 dental implants and a fixed bridge in as little as one appointment. In its most extraordinary application, an entire mouthful of teeth may be replaced with implants and non-removable set of new teeth in one-day. This procedure is called “Teeth-In-A-Day”. The Teeth-In-A-Day dental implant protocol is the most advanced and technically demanding procedure in all of implant dentistry.
