Dental implant imageAt Cannington Dental Centre, you’ll have access to a full suite of dental services. As our name shows, we are here to serve the needs of your entire family. Tooth loss is experienced by many people. Though you may be tempted to live without the tooth, we encourage you to explore your options within tooth replacement.

Dental implants are considered the gold standard of treatment when it comes to addressing missing teeth. People love that they are

  • Natural-looking
  • Easy to care for
  • Long-lasting

Your teeth can fall out due to several factors. Some people are born with teeth missing, which are called congenitally missing teeth. You may have also needed to have your tooth extracted at some point due to decay, trauma or another form of damage. When you have missing teeth, you should explore what can be done to replace them. We’ll detail all possible options that are available to you, discussing the pros and cons of each so you can decide what you’d like to do.

A dental implant is a titanium screw. When placed in your jaw, the goal is that the bone will grow around the implant, integrating it into the jaw. When the site has healed, you can have a restoration placed on top. The most common is a dental crown. You can also have a bridge placed on the implant. If you have no teeth remaining, you can have dentures anchored to your implant to replace all teeth.

Once you get your implant, you’ll find it’s easy to take care of. It’s been found that up to 95% of dental implants can last for more than 25 years. That will depend on several factors, however. It’s essential that you come in for regular checkup and cleaning appointments to monitor the health of your dental implant and restoration. Though the dental implant isn’t a real tooth, you must brush and floss around it because you can get gum disease around the implant without feeling anything.

Specialist Care Can Be Easily Coordinated With Us

There are certain cases that require more complex dental implant work. If you require additional care, our team will be happy to coordinate the appointment with the correct specialist for you, such as a periodontist or prosthodontist. Some of these situations include changing the position of sinuses or having some extra bone material placed in the jaw.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many appointments does it take to get a dental implant?

The typical cases take two: one for the implant to be placed and a second to have your implant fitted for the proper restoration. If you require extra care such as a bone graft, however, that will add to the amount of visits you need.

How long does it take for the implant site to heal?

Healing times can be different for each person. The typical cases take 3-6 months, at which point you’ll return for a follow-up to have your restoration placed on your implant.

Are there alternatives to dental implants?

Yes. We offer several tooth replacement options at our clinic. If you decide you don’t want to opt for a dental implant, we can discuss your suitability for a bridge or denture.
