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 is 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.

How is a Dental Implant Placed?

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.

Step 3: Implant Post

The post is screwed into the rod to hold the crown.

Step 4: Implant Crown Placement

The crown is attached to the post for completion and will look and feel like a natural tooth.

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.
