Dental Implants in Kanata – Dentist Kanata – Kanata Lakes Dental
Dental implants are becoming an increasingly popular treatment solution for people who have lost one or more of their teeth because of injury, extensive decay, or another disease. If this describes your situation and you are missing the look, the function, the convenience and the confidence that your natural teeth provided consider replacing them with the next good thing – dental implants.
Dental Implants in Kanata
Kanata Lakes Dental Centre offers dental implants for people who are looking to replace their missing teeth. Generally speaking, implants are an ideal treatment solution when the patient is missing a single tooth and it is highly recommended for those who are missing two or more (adjacent) teeth.
Dental implants are small titanium screws that are surgically placed into a jaw bone and allowed to “fuse” with the bone (osseointegration) in order to perform the function of natural roots. The implants are later restored with prosthetic crowns, bridges, or dentures. The ceramic material used for these restorations looks very much like natural tooth enamel and can be easily matched with the patient’s own unique tooth coloration.
Dental implants represent a significant improvement on traditional prosthetic restorations in terms of appearance, functionality, and durability. They look very natural, they are strong and stable and, with proper care, they last a very long time. Another important advantage of implant-supported restorations is that they do not require the involvement (preparation) of any of the neighboring healthy teeth.
Interested in Getting a Dental Implant?
We recommend that you replace missing teeth as soon as possible before the structure of the surrounding teeth and the jaw start to change significantly. The jaw may begin to recede (shrink) and the teeth may start to “move”. If this happens, additional corrective procedures, such as bone grafting, may be necessary before the implant placement and restoration can take place.
If dental implants are placed early enough and no additional procedures are needed, healing will be complete in 2-6 months, followed by simple and quick prosthetic restoration.
Our Kanata dentists can help you replace and restore all missing teeth and give you back your smile and your “bite” (so to speak). Dental implants are unquestionably the top tooth replacement treatment available, but they may not be appropriate for everyone, every time. There may be special cases and special circumstances, where other treatment options may be more appropriate. We will closely study your particular case, present you with our findings and recommendations, and help you find a solution that works good for you. Call us today!
