Experience A Rejuvenated Smile With Dental Implants

Artificial teeth roots that are made of titanium and similar materials, dental implants act as a replacement for natural tooth roots and serve as anchors for replacement teeth.

What's involved with a dental implant being placed?

A dental implant is a post that serves as an artificial tooth root. The implant is embedded into your jawbone via a minor surgical procedure and allowed to heal and fuse with the surrounding bone. This process, known as osseointegration, helps ensure your implant will be stable and secure. Once it has healed and integrated, a dental prosthetic—which may be a dental crown & bridges, or denture—will be attached to the implant.

What benefits do dental implants offer that other tooth-restoring options don't?

Dental implants offer numerous advantages over other restorative options. They:

  • Support your facial structure and help prevent your jawbone from deteriorating, which happens when a tooth is removed
  • Replace missing teeth without relying on neighbouring teeth for support
  • Have natural-feeling false teeth that don't slip or cause irritation to adjacent oral tissues
  • Improve your appearance and restore your smile
  • Allow for easier eating—dental implants won't slip out of place when you chew, like dentures
  • Reduce bone loss and gum recession that can occur with other tooth-replacement options
  • Improved oral health. The implants themselves don’t require special care and do not predispose you to other dental problems like cavities or gum disease.

Who is a candidate for a dental implant?

Dental implants are typically recommended for patients who have one or more missing teeth and have healthy gums and sufficient jawbone density. Our team will evaluate your mouth to determine if you are a suitable candidate for dental implants.
