Dental Implants

Dental implants are the new standard of care for tooth replacement. They are secured into the bone to provide long term support for crowns and dentures.

Why consider dental implants

Losing one or more of your teeth have has a number of harmful effects:

When a tooth is lost, the jawbone beneath it begins to shrink.

Not only does losing a tooth affect your smile, it also changes the shape of your face causing you to look prematurely aged.

Benefits of dental implants


What to expect

Treatment planning

Your dentist will do a full examination and take appropriate measures to determine suitability of treatment and implant position.

Occasionally, a bone graft or gum tissue graft will be needed to create an adequate site for the dental implants.

Implant placement

Dental implants are placed into the bone in a relatively pain-free procedure.

A temporary bridge or denture is often put over the area at this point to restore the smile.

The bone and gums will be given time to heal before an abutment and crown are attached.

Crown placement

Your final crown will be placed to restore your natural smile.
