What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are strong titanium posts surgically placed directly into the jawbone and capped with natural replacement teeth that give the same security and functionality as your original teeth. They can replace a single tooth, several teeth, or a whole arch of teeth. Dental implants help prevent surrounding teeth from shifting, resolve bite issues or jaw joint pain, restore facial tissue, and improve your smile. The best part is that dental implants can be used right away!

Overview of the Dental Implant Procedure

First, one of our dentists will conduct a comprehensive examination and assessment of your oral health. This includes X-rays and 3D imaging to evaluate bone structure and determine if dental implants are right for you.

If you’re deemed a good candidate, we’ll start the first stage. This consists of surgically placing the titanium dental implant into your jawbone beneath your gum tissue. The area is then allowed to heal, during which time the implant will gradually bond with the bone and attach to the gum.

Once the healing process is complete, we’ll begin the second stage. This consists of attaching an abutment to the implant, which serves as a connector between the implant and the artificial tooth. Then, we’ll create a custom replacement tooth.

Finally, we’ll complete stage three by securely attaching the customized dental crown or bridge to the abutment, providing a natural-looking and functional replacement tooth. It may take several appointments to properly fit the replacement tooth into the abutment.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

Dental implants are appropriate for nearly everyone who is missing a tooth, a few teeth or all their teeth. If you’re in good health, have healthy gums and enough bone in your jaw to hold an implant, dental implants might be right for you. If your jawbone has shrunk or hasn’t developed correctly, you may be able to have a bone graft to build up the bone. When you visit Cosmo Dental Centre, our dentist will discuss your unique requirements.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care. Caring for your implants includes daily brushing and flossing at home, as well as attending regular hygiene cleanings and exams.
