If you have one or more missing teeth and would like to regain your ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence, dental implants may be for you. Dental implants are a permanent solution for tooth replacement that restores strength, functionality, and beauty — all in one! A dental implant is the most ideal treatment option to replace a missing tooth. Dental implants replace the natural tooth root, placed through a simple same-day surgical procedure. These small titanium anchors, placed into the space left by the missing tooth, needs time to heal while the titanium and bone begin to fuse together. Once this healing process is complete, an abutment is attached to the implant which is then covered with a crowns, bridge, or denture. While dentures and removable partials are usually loose and unstable, implants provide dental replacements that are natural looking and very functional. Implants look and feel better than their removable counterparts and offer the same force for biting as bridges that are fixed. Best of all, they will last a lifetime if properly maintained. A dental implant requires no alterations to the adjacent teeth. Diligent daily oral hygiene is required for implants to stay clean and healthy. It’s also important to regularly visit Dr.Grace Chun and her staff at Lougheed/Burquitlam Dental Centre for routine follow-up appointments and cleanings to keep your new smile healthy and bright!
