Why dental implants?

In most cases of tooth loss, we recommend a dental implant solution as there are many proven benefits to this solution compared to alternatives. Dental implants replace the natural tooth root in your jaw:

  • Chewing, eating ability restored
  • Prevents bone loss
  • Speaking ability restored
  • Looks and feels natural
  • No need to cut back healthy teeth to insert a dental bridge

How do dental implants work?

The dental implant is titanium and acts as an artificial tooth root in your jaw. Titanium is a biocompatible material that has been safely used in humans to replace missing teeth for over fifty years. We then attach a tooth (or teeth) to the implants so no more gaps. The tooth is fixed in place and is not removable, so you will need to brush and floss like your natural teeth.

Step 1

Consultation & Imaging

To see if you are a candidate for dental implants we need to take a special 3-D image of your jaw to see how much bone you have.
Step 2

Implant placement

Using the 3-D image, we use software to plan the precise position of your implant. We use a custom made template to place the implant which increases safety and precision of this procedure. When possible we also put a temporary tooth on your implant, so there is no gap.
Step 3

Final Tooth (teeth) placed

The implant is left 3-6 months to heal and have bone grow around it to make it secure. After the healing period, we attach a final custom-made tooth (or teeth) to the implant.

Dental Implants FAQs

Are dental implants safe?

Implants have been used to replace missing teeth for over 50 years. There are hundreds of high-quality research papers and studies that document high success rates (over 95%). Titanium is commonly used not only in dentistry but also for hip replacements due to the high biocompatibility with human bone.

Why replace missing teeth with dental implants?

Apart from fixing a gap in your smile, replacing missing teeth has significant biological advantages. Replacing a lost tooth root with a dental implant stimulates the jaw bone and helps to prevent bone loss that accompanies tooth loss. Dental bridges cover the gap but do not prevent bone loss. Dentures restore only limited chewing capacity and over time may exacerbate bone loss in your jaw.
