Frequently asked questions

A dental implant is a small man-made titanium screw that serves as a replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth.

The implant is placed in the bone of the upper or lower jaw and allowed to bond with the bone and serve as an anchor for the replacement tooth.

Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth.

Implant-supported replacement teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth.
Dental implants are a proven restorative option with a long clinical history.

Dental implants preserve the integrity of the facial structure and reduce the inconvenience associated with tooth loss.

Implants may be completed in a single appointment or a course of appointments and time.

As implants are surgically placed in bone, healing phases are essential. This time allows your bone to integrate to the implant fixture and ensure the strength and function of the prosthetic tooth that will be attached to the implant.

Your clinical diagnosis appointment is the key to understanding your implant journey as it will be unique to you. We offer different temporary options during implant healing phases to ensure you are not without teeth at any time during your treatment.

Our practice treatment coordinator is available for complimentary non-clinical discussions about possible implant treatment.

Anyone who is missing one or more of their teeth due to injury, disease or decay may be a candidate for dental implants.

If one, a few or all teeth are missing, dental implants in conjunction with a crown or bridge can replace those teeth.

Occasionally, older patients express concern that their age may prevent them from enjoying the benefits that dental implants offer. However, health is more of a determining factor than age. We have yet to meet a patient who is not a candidate for dental implants.

If you’re healthy enough to have a tooth extracted, you’re probably healthy enough to receive dental implants. Your dentist will determine if you are a candidate for dental implants after a careful evaluation of your dental and medical health history in a dental implant consultation.

At this time all your questions can be answered.

Most patients report that there is very little discomfort and that they were much more comfortable following the procedure than they anticipated.

Dental implants are placed in a very gentle fashion and care is taken to the various tissues involved.

Anaesthesia and patient sedation are used to eliminate any discomfort during the procedure. Your dentist may recommend that you speak with another patient who has already had tooth replacement therapy to assess their personal experience. This can be really helpful, especially with our nervous patients!

The benefits of dental implant treatment include improved appearance, enhanced ability to chew and enjoy your food, and often protection of your remaining teeth and jawbone.
