Eat, Chew & Smile Naturally Again!

Dental Implants

Dental implants look & feel like your own teeth. With a secure fit, you can finally eat what you want again!

The biggest advantage implants have over dentures is that they’re permanent. Unlike removable dentures or partial dentures, implants do not involve messy adhesives or false teeth getting in the way of speech or eating. Also, because they’re permanent, implants will always be a perfect fit, unlike dentures which may need to be refitted or replaced over time.

A New Level of Respect for You & Your Family

We Love Kids & Families!

Northstar Family Dentistry is a team of caring, experienced dental professionals who use only the most advanced technologies, materials & procedures & whose primary focus is on comfortable, health-centered dentistry. At our community focused practice, your comfort & satisfaction come first. We look forward to meeting you soon & developing a relationship with you to build the bridge toward long-term trust & successful dental care. Northstar Family Dentistry invites you to see why our patients can’t stop smiling!

Research has linked gum disease to health problems like diabetes, heart disease & low birth weight. Call today for your dental cleaning!

We practice dentistry for your entire family. From preventive education & regular hygiene to identifying & caring for dental issues that may arise, your continued oral health is our top priority. We believe in preventing dental problems before they become costly, painful, or both. When problems do arise, our skilled team is there to provide you with solutions.
