Dental implants consist of a tiny titanium post and crown. During a short oral surgery, the post is placed in the bone, just below the gum line. Through a natural process, the dental implant becomes part of your jaw creating a solid foundation. An artificial tooth (custom crown) is then permanently affixed into the implant.
Our doctors can restore a single implant with a custom crown, restore a complete span with an implant supported bridge, or stabilize a partial or denture with a few strategically placed implants. Because dental implants function like natural tooth roots, they’re widely accepted as the best tooth replacement option. Here are a few reasons why we recommend dental implants for our Kitchener-Waterloo area patients.
The majority of dental implants and bone graft can be performed in the office under local anesthesia, with or without sedation. If you’re missing teeth, call Bridgeport Weber Dental Centre for your dental implant consultation.
