Dental Implants

Dental Implants are a replacement teeth option that provides the nearest-to-natural experience. Dental Implants mimic the placement, structure, and foundations of your natural tooth, giving you the ultimate in strength and life-time use functionality.

Dental Implants consist of two integrated components that combine to create a nearly-natural restoration. There is the replacement tooth, which will match your original tooth in every way, from size and shape to colour, and the tiny titanium metal fixture, which is set into your jawbone, where it becomes the root for your new replacement tooth.

Some possible time frames in the Dental Implant treatment process may include:

  • Once the titanium fixture is implanted in bone, it can take at least 3 months in the lower jaw and as much as 6 months in the upper jaw to fully bond, ready to become the "root" for your replacement tooth.
  • An average time from fixture implant to bonding to permanent tooth replacement is 4-6 months.

All aspects of your Dental Implant will be carefully performed, thoroughly explained, and regularly monitored.

This will include assessing the stability of your jaw bone, determining that there is adequate bone mass to support the implant, and whether a bone graft is necessary.

Dental Implants have some advantages over crowns and bridges, often being the treatment choice due to their ability to be a true permanent tooth replacement. Whether they are the best cosmetic tooth replacement treatment option for you depends on many circumstances. Your dentist will happily discuss all available tooth replacement options and will assist you with your treatment decisions.
