Dental Implants for Crowns, Bridges & Dentures

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a long-term replacement solution when you are missing a tooth. A dental implant consists of a small titanium screw that is placed directly into the jawbone. In order to determine if you are a suitable candidate for an implant, we take a 3D i-CAT image. This X-ray will help your dentist to ensure you have enough bone to support the implant screw. The healing process takes 3-6 months before the restorative work takes place. If you are considering implants, we can help you make the right choice.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

  • Dental implants are the closest possible replacement to natural teeth
  • Implants remove the need to reduce a portion of healthy teeth to place a bridge
  • Implants help preserve the bone in the jaws
  • Dental implants allow replacement teeth to become stable for everyday purposes, such as chewing or speaking


How are dental implants placed?

  1. Planning
    Careful planning is an essential first step that begins with a thorough examination of your individual case. It consists of the i-CAT image and fabricating a model of your teeth. Your dentist will then review this information and make a full treatment plan with you.

  2. Implant Placement
    The next stage is to have the implant placed. Once the implant is in place, the area is left for 3-6 months to ensure that the implant is accepted and successful.

  3. Replacement Teeth
    When the healing period is complete, restorative work will begin. Impressions will be taken and sent to the lab to have your final restoration made.


Caring for Your Dental Implants

Very much like natural teeth, implants require regular check-ups. The success of dental implants is dependent on seeing your dental hygienist regularly and maintaining good oral hygiene. During your regular check-up appointments, we will evaluate the success of your home care techniques to help ensure that you are doing the best you can to maintain the long-term function of your implants.
