Find Out How Dental Implants Can help you With our implant consultation

Our highly experienced dentist will go through in detail all of the treatment options that may be available to you to help you achieve your functional and cosmetic objectives.

what to expect during the implant consultation

1.) Initial assessment

Many dentists provide complimentary consultation for dental implants. During this session, your doctor will go over your medical history, evaluate your oral health, and determine whether you need any pre-implant procedures.

2.) Determining the right treatment plan

After assessing your needs and goals, the dentist will be able to provide a thorough treatment timeline as well as an estimate of the cost of your care. You should be given all of the information you need to decide if implants are right for you.

3.) Oral examination

During your appointment, our dentist will do a thorough intra-oral examination. An examination of your remaining teeth will indicate whether extractions are necessary. Your dentist will also assess your gums and look for evidence of gum recession or pockets. If you are diagnosed with periodontal disease, you must first seek treatment. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to peri-implantitis and implant loss.

4.) Helping you to decide and know the benefits of the treatment

After evaluating your medical history, oral health, and bone health, your dentist can present you with a proposed treatment plan. Most patients can receive permanent crowns, bridges, or dentures after approximately four to six months following implant surgery. Implant-supported restorations often result in substantial out-of-pocket costs.
Understanding the advantages of tooth implant is critical for making an informed decision about your restorative care. Dental implants provide various advantages over traditional dental restorations.

frequently asked questions about dental implants

Dental implant surgery is a treatment that replaces tooth roots with metal, screw-like posts and restores damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function similarly to natural teeth. Dental implant surgery can provide a pleasant alternative to poor-fitting dentures or bridgework, as well as an option when a lack of natural tooth roots prevents the construction of denture or bridgework tooth replacements.
  • You have good oral and general health.
  • Your jawbone is strong enough to support the implant.
  • Your gum tissues are healthy and free of periodontal disease.
  • Practising a good oral hygiene routine.
  • Non-smoker or willing to halt the habit of smoking.

Sedation. Prior to the placement of the implants, our experienced team will administer local anesthesia to help you feel comfortable throughout the procedure. If a higher amount is necessary, it can be discussed prior to the procedure.

Placing the dental implant. During the dental implant procedure, the dentist will make an incision in your gum to expose the bone. Holes are drilled into the bone to receive the dental implant metal post. Since the implant post will act as the tooth root, it is placed deep into the bone.

Osseointegration. Osseointegration begins once the metal implant post is placed in your jawbone. The jawbone grows onto and joins with the surface of the dental implant throughout this procedure. This process, which can take several months, serves to establish a stable foundation for your new artificial tooth, just as roots do for natural teeth.

The majority of dental implants used today are made of titanium or titanium alloys. The important reason for this is titanium’s excellent biocompatibility. The term “biocompatible” refers to a material that is not toxic or damaging to living human tissues.

Because of its poor electrical conductivity, titanium is one of the most biocompatible materials available today. This property permits it to be very corrosion resistant.

As a result, when titanium implants are implanted into living tissue, they should not corrode or rust. As a result, they are extremely safe and non-toxic to people.

Bacteremia is one of the most common reasons that tooth implants fail. Bacteria can compromise the implant itself during insertion in some situations. Bacteria can then infect the implant site and its surroundings.

Gum disease weakens and dissolves this tissue and bone. Even after you’ve treated gum disease, your jawbone may not be strong enough to support an implant. If this is the case, you may be a candidate for a bone and/or soft tissue graft. These are both very common and successful procedures. Once completed and given time to heal, you’ll likely be a much better candidate for a dental implant.

General dentists, especially experienced ones, can perform implant procedures. But if you have numerous missing teeth, bone loss, cosmetic issues, or bite issues, you should see a specialist or get their second opinion.

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons, oral surgeons, and periodontists are all certified surgical professionals. A prosthodontist is the qualified specialist for the crown.
