Etobicoke ON dentist explains the dental implant procedure
posted by sherway dentistry
Dr. Shefali Tuli and the staff at sherway Dentistry in Etobicoke ON provides patients with beautiful, healthy smiles. We all want strong, natural teeth. Unfortunately, trauma, illness, and poor oral health can lead to tooth loss. The dental implant procedure is the ideal option for tooth replacement. It helps maintain the health of the jawbone while restoring the smile.
The purpose of a dental implant
When a tooth is missing, the surrounding bone begins to deteriorate, the teeth shift, and oral problems occur. As a post that is surgically placed in the jawbone, an implant mimics a tooth root. It gives stability and support to dental restorations such as crowns or dentures. Purposes of an implant include:
- Replacing a single tooth or multiple teeth
- Providing security and support not found with other dental restorations
- Stimulating and maintaining the health of the jawbone
- Restoring a proper chewing surface
- Looks like a natural tooth once topped with a crown
Performed in the comfort of your dentist’s office
Dental implants require enough strong bone to support them. Once it has been determined that you are a qualified candidate for the procedure, the multi-visit process can begin. We perform the entire process in our office using modern technology such as intra-oral cameras and digital x-rays. Through a gentle surgery using a local anesthetic, the implant is placed in the jawbone. Nitrous oxide may be used to maintain patient comfort and relaxation.
Following implantation, a temporary restoration is placed to cover the site as the gums and bone have time to heal around the implant. Healing takes a few months. The permanent restoration can then be placed. The result is a beautifully restored smile. With proper care, your implant can last a lifetime.
