Dental Implant

Why Dental Implants?

Losing teeth can significantly impact both your self-confidence and overall oral health. It may lead to complex dental problems like shifting teeth, bite issues, and reduced jawbone density. The absence of a tooth can create extra space, disrupting the alignment of surrounding teeth. Moreover, without a tooth or implant in place, the area around the missing tooth may experience bone loss over time, which can affect future implant treatments. That's why it's essential to consider dental implants sooner rather than later.

The good news is that dental implants offer a reliable and long-lasting solution to tooth loss. At Dentudio Dentists, we provide comprehensive dental implant treatments to restore your smile's balance and ensure optimal oral health. Let us help you regain your confidence and enjoy a healthy, complete smile with our advanced dental implant services. Feel free to reach out to us for more information or to explore your options further!

What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a fantastic solution for replacing missing teeth, where an artificial tooth is securely supported by a titanium metal anchor. This anchor acts as a replacement for the natural tooth root and is carefully inserted into the jawbone.

Whether you have a single missing tooth, several gaps, or even an entire upper or lower jaw to restore, dental implants offer a wonderful option. Implant-supported teeth and dentures are known for their exceptional patient satisfaction, closely resembling real teeth in both function and appearance.

If you're considering tooth replacement options, dental implants might be the perfect fit for you.

Reach out to us today and let's explore whether dental implants are the right choice to restore your beautiful smile and dental function. We're here to answer any questions you may have!

How long does it take to have an implant?

The duration of the healing process can vary from person to person, typically ranging from 2 to 9 months. Several factors influence this timeline, such as the patient's age, the length of time the tooth has been missing, overall oral health, and general well-being.

For those who have a missing anterior tooth (a visible tooth), there's a wonderful option available. You can choose to wear a temporary appliance that visually replaces the tooth until the treatment is fully completed. This way, you can maintain your smile's aesthetics during the healing period. Rest assured, we'll work closely with you to ensure a smooth and successful dental implant journey!

Who is a candidate for a dental implant?

Anyone can be a candidate if you have a missing tooth and desire it to be replaced. However, there are specific requirements that must be met to qualify for dental implant surgery. To determine your candidacy, a number of factors are considered, such as:

  • Bone density

  • Overall health of the teeth and gums

  • Position of sinuses, blood vessels, and nerves

During your initial consultation, our dentists at Dentudio Dentists will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your teeth, gums, and jaw joints. We will also take x-rays or scans to evaluate the health and density of your underlying jawbone. By gathering all the necessary information, we can discuss your concerns and oral health goals in detail. If you are eligible for dental implants, we will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

If you have any uncertainties about whether you qualify for dental implants, don't hesitate to contact Dentudio Dentists today. You can reach us online or by calling 604-370-1450 to schedule a consultation.
