Dental Implants From Your Dentists in Brantford
Whether you’re tired of wearing dentures or are looking to eradicate feelings of self-consciousness when smiling, speaking, or laughing, a dental implant may be your ideal tooth-replacement option.
A dental restoration comprised of artificial tooth roots and a prosthetic crown replacement, a dental implant does more than restore social confidence to patients. It also intercepts jaw bone loss that occurs when a tooth is removed but not replaced, prevents facial sagging and volume loss in the face, and allows the wearer to eat their favourite foods again.
How is the procedure performed?
After we perform a thorough examination of your mouth and take X-rays, we’ll ask you about your oral health needs and goals, and determine whether an implant is right for you. Should you be a candidate, we’ll arrange an appointment to have the dental implant (the artificial tooth roots) placed in your jaw, below the gumline.
Once the roots are secure and your jaw bone is being reinforced, we’ll schedule a future follow-up appointment to place a prosthetic crown on the implant, above the gum line.
Is everyone a candidate for a dental implant?
While most patients can benefit from a dental implant, having adequate jaw bone density is necessary for the implant to be successful. Patients with bone loss should speak to their dentist about their candidacy for an implant, and about whether bone grafting is a viable option.
