What Can I Expect with Dental Implants in Hamilton?

This procedure is the next best thing to your natural teeth and they can last a lifetime with proper care. A dental implant looks and feels like a regular tooth and are great replacements for missing teeth. It also promotes bone retention and healthy gums as a result of the pressure on the rod (implant root structure) from chewing and biting.

The procedure itself is conducted under local anesthesia, so there is little to no pain or discomfort involved at this time. Options are available to fill a single tooth placement, multiple implants to support a removable denture or a full bridge placement.

Single Dental Implant Placement

A single tooth placement is ideal for anyone missing a single tooth.

Step 1: Extraction

The former tooth’s root is removed and requires a five-month waiting time for the bone to properly heal.

Step 2: Implant Placement

The titanium rod is implanted into the socket of the jawbone which requires a six-twelve week healing process.

The healing process will involve some discomfort but be sure to stick to soft foods and plenty of water for a faster recovery time. If you are concerned about the discomfort, speak to your dentist about possible pain medications they can administer during this time to ensure the smoothest recovery possible. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us and schedule a consultation.

Who Needs a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are typically required by anyone with missing or eroding teeth. This can be due to injury, disease, or decay caused by aging, improper care or neglect. When teeth are missing or damaged, the jawbone fails to stimulate bone growth, and jawbone deterioration can compromise your remaining teeth. A collapse of the facial structure can also occur. This can lead to wrinkles formed around the mouth, affecting appearance and self-esteem.

Ultimately your dentist will determine if you are a candidate for this procedure by carefully evaluating your dental and medical history. Implants are especially practical for patients who can no longer wear removable dentures. And patients can be of any age.  The main requirement is that healthy gums and bones exist as they are necessary to hold the titanium implant and its prosthetic tooth in place.
