Dental Implants

Dental implant treatment is a predictable, long-lasting way to replace missing teeth. Unlike other conventional types of tooth replacement, implants are modelled after the size, shape and function of anatomical teeth.

What Are Dental Implants?

When placed into the bone at the site of your missing tooth, implants integrate with your body and the implant fuses permanently into place. Each implant is crafted of hypoallergenic materials, ensuring the safety and long-lasting success of the restoration.

Implants work by mimicking the support of anatomical tooth roots so that we can place a fixed restoration on top of them. They can be used independently or in pairs, with multi-tooth restorations affixed between them.

Advantages of Dental Implants

  • Stronger than healthy, natural teeth
  • Can be used in pairs for multi-tooth restoration
  • No alteration to adjacent teeth
  • Support natural biting patterns
  • Preserve tooth alignment and bone
  • Permanent, non-removable restorations
  • Enjoy all your favourite foods

The integrity and success of implants mean you can go about your typical day-to-day activities. Transitioning to your new smile is one that’s comfortable and easy to do.

Comfortable and Predictable Tooth Replacement

Investing in dental implants provides you with the option of permanently replacing your missing teeth. Their design is the most lifelike restoration in modern dentistry, making the transition into full-mouth restoration one that’s predictable and comfortable.

Depending on how many teeth you’re missing, we may recommend an individual implant and crown, pair of implants with a bridge or a series of four implants for All-on-4 full-mouth restoration. Each person’s smile is unique, so the number of implants you need may be different than someone else.

The actual placement of your implant typically requires a brief visit that can be completed under local anaesthetic. If you’re undergoing full-mouth restoration, sedation is usually preferred. Thanks to their minimally-invasive design, implant recovery is easier than most people expect.

Should I Get Dental Implants?

Today’s dental implant designs outlast and outperform nearly every other form of tooth replacement. However, they’re only intended for adults, as their mouths are fully developed. Additionally, we’ll need to ensure that your gum tissues and bone are healthy enough to install an implant at each specific location.

With a success rating of 98%, a properly maintained implant has the potential to last for decades. Simply brush and floss your implants as you would your other teeth. The key to their success is a healthy mouth and great oral hygiene. Schedule your checkups every six months so that we can carefully monitor your smile’s health.

Investing in dental implants is one of the most predictable ways to replace your missing teeth for life. When you’re smiling or eating, they’ll mimic what your natural teeth once felt like. There’s nothing quite like them! You could almost say they’re the next best thing to having your real teeth all over again.
