Now it’s possible to make you a new one. Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth because we can replicate the support of the root provided to the tooth without affecting any other teeth. Did you know that once a tooth is removed the surrounding teeth can shift? Studies show you can also experience up to 30% bone loss in the jaw within a year and up to 60% in 3 years.
Typically, the sooner the implant is placed the better. The jaw bone grows around the titanium post and fuses to give you a strong, stable foundation. The crown placed on the implant looks very natural, just like a real tooth. It can give you back the confidence to smile and eat whatever you like.
Understandably, most people express concern about pain after having a dental implant placed. However, our patients tell us that there is less discomfort with the implant placement than the tooth removal. Once the implant has healed in approximately 3 months, the beautiful replacement tooth will be placed. The artificial tooth is securely attached to the implant and you can once again enjoy your favourite foods and smile confidently.
