Revive Your Smile

Missing teeth can cause a host of issues. They can make it hard to talk and chew. When neighbouring teeth no longer have the support and pressure from the missing tooth, they can loosen and shift out of place.

The jaw bone can also deteriorate because of missing teeth. When teeth are gone, the surrounding bone doesn't get the necessary pressure and force when chewing. This lack of a workout can cause that area of the jaw to weaken and shrink over time.

You might also feel insecure or self-conscious about your missing teeth. Dental implants can be an excellent way to replace missing teeth and help rebuild your confidence. While dental implants replace missing teeth, they also hold the other teeth in place and stop the jaw bone from eroding.

Dental implants can offer you a natural-looking smile. They also don't need adhesives or any specialized cleaning. This makes them a convenient and hassle-free option.

3Shape TRIOS Scanner

We use a 3Shape TRIOS scanner in our office to make dental implant procedures, and other restorative treatments, much more comfortable and pleasant. Instead of having to make messy impressions and then waiting for them to dry, a 3Shape TRIOS Scanner allows us a more accurate image of your teeth in seconds.

Dental Implant Process

In general, the dental implant and tooth replacements process takes 3-9 months to complete and involves several steps.

First, your dentist will surgically place the implant (a titanium screw) into your jaw bone below the gums. The implant will attach to the gums and bone as they heal.

Once the healing is complete, generally a few months post-surgery, patients return to our office to complete the procedure. 

At this final appointment, your dentist will attach a tooth replacement to the implant, such as a dental crown, bridge, or denture, to mimic the appearance and function of a natural tooth.

Your dentist will also give you care instructions for your dental implants to help your new, healthier smile last as long as possible.
