Accidentally losing a tooth can be dreadful, but thankfully, among the things we do best at Oakville Lane Dental is providing dental implants in Rothesay and surrounding areas. We serve patients from across Rothesay and the Kennebecasis Valley. Our dentists walk you through the process, including aftercare and recovery.
The procedure involves placing a customized replacement for missing teeth and making it firm at the root with titanium fixtures. A local anesthesia is given during the operation. Crowns and bridges take care of the rest of the therapy by acting as caps over the affected tooth. The patient must conscientiously brush and floss for better results.
Given their lasting survival rates, dental implants are designed to be a permanent solution. The advantage is not only a return to normal speech and chewing (and therefore, all-round wellness) but greater support to dentures as well, affording stability and retention.
A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth, in the form of a custom dental crown, dental bridge or denture, which is permanently secured in the jaw with a tiny, titanium post. The post acts like a tooth root, stimulating healthy bone growth to avoid jaw shrinkage which often occurs after tooth loss. A dental implant functions like a natural tooth, enabling patients to enjoy normal speech and a healthy diet without restrictions. With proper dental care and good oral hygiene, a dental implant can last a lifetime.
Dental implants are the most natural-looking and innovative solution for replacing missing teeth. The dental implant procedure has significantly improved and now holds about a 98% success rate. With proper care and routine dental visits, your dental implants can last forever.
Dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth or to secure a denture when an entire arch of teeth have been lost or removed. They provide a permanent, secure and completely functional solution that will also support healthy bone growth in the jaw to maintain your natural appearance and profile.
Dental Implant Benefits
If you’re missing one or two teeth: Single dental implants can be used to replace one or two teeth. Usually, the implant is placed and restored with a porcelain dental crown or bridge. Dental implants can be used to replace teeth that are congenitally missing or teeth that have been lost due to accidents, tooth decay, gum disease or other reasons.
If you’re missing several teeth: If you are missing several teeth in a row, our dentists offer dental implants that can be placed to support a hybrid-bridge or partial denture.
If you’re missing all of your teeth: We offer a variety of dental implant treatments to replace all of your missing teeth. We can also secure loose or poor fitting dentures with the use of mini dental implants. All on Four dental implants offers immediate function dental implants, so you never have to go a day without your smile.
