Dental Implants

Tooth Implants are a surgical procedure where a tooth/teeth lost due to damage or extraction could be replaced.  Implant fixture (titanium screw) is surgically applied to the mouth and cannot be visible once secured into the jawbone. Implants are then used to place crowns on top, which replace missing teeth; they are also used to secure bridges and/or dentures. Implants are made from titanium, a safe inert biocompatible metal used in many surgical procedures; since the body doesn’t reject this type of metal, the success rate for implants is quite high. When an implant is put into the jawbone, it is osteointegrated or in other words fused in with the jaw bone; implants are the most natural and esthetic. The reason for this is that the implant is stable enough to be placed on its own without affecting any neighbouring teeth.

There are a lot of advantages to getting implants such as improved appearance which can lead to higher self-esteem, improved speech, easier to eat, durability, convenience, and overall improved oral health.  Each patient would need to have an individual plan developed for them as everyone’s mouth and teeth are different; the plan would target the patient’s specific need for tooth implants.  The dentist starts out by placing the implant into the empty bone socket, where the natural tooth was extracted; once the implant is given time to bond with the jawbone, another connector is attached to the tooth to hold it in place. There is very little to no discomfort for the patient when the procedure is completed, local anesthesia is used on the patient during the procedure
