We Do Dental Implants!

Dental implants are probably the single most important advancement in the field of dentistry in the last 30 years. Unlike dentures and bridges which rely on neighbouring teeth for support and retention, dental implants are held in place by the jaw bone itself, just like a real tooth!

A dental implant is a small, cylindrical titanium "post" which is surgically implanted into the jawbone in the area of the missing tooth. After a period of healing, the implant becomes "osseointegrated" or fused to the jawbone, in much the same way a titanium hip implant would be fused to the hip bone. Once fully healed, the implant can be used to attach an artificial tooth or teeth, or can be used to aid in the retention of a denture.

A Life-changing Restorative Treatment

Advantages of dental implants include the fact that they are securely fixed in place while maintaining the jawbone. They leave surrounding teeth untouched, and can be cleaned relatively easily with brushing and flossing. They're also very aesthetically pleasing, as the artificial tooth attached to the implant mimics the natural appearance of the rest of your teeth.

Things to consider: dental implants are a relatively expensive procedure that requires a minor surgical phase. A patient must also have sufficient bone in the toothless area to accommodate the implant.

So many patients have improved their quality of life with dental implants. Think dental implants are right for you? Schedule a consultation with us today!
