Dental Implants

A dental implant in Oakville is a surgical procedure which involves the replacement of a tooth’s root due to damage. Tooth implants are inserted and secured surgically to the mouth. These implants are not noticeable once secured into the jawbone. Dental implants are utilized to secure crowns, which replace missing teeth. They can also be used to secure bridges or dentures. Dental tooth implants are typically made of titanium, a safe metal used not just for dental implants but also other surgical parts such as prosthetic joints.  Generally, our body will tolerate this type of metal well, this results in a high success rate for implanted surgical devices. When a tooth implant is put into the jawbone, the bone will grow around the implant and integrate as though it was the original root. Once the implant is integrated, the implant and crown will feel as natural as a regular tooth in the mouth.  The reason for this is that the tooth implant is stable enough to be placed on its own without affecting any neighbouring teeth.

There are many of advantages to getting tooth implants at our Oakville dental office. Such advantages as improved appearance, which can lead to higher self-esteem, improved speech, easier chewing, durability, convenience, and overall improved oral health.  Each patient would need to have an individual plan developed for him or her as everyone’s mouth and teeth are different. Each plan is tailored to the patient’s specific need for tooth implants.  The initial phase starts out by placing the implant into the empty bone socket, where the natural tooth was extracted.  The implant typically requires 8 to 12 weeks to bond with the jawbone. There is very little discomfort for the patient during and after the procedure is completed.  Local anesthesia is used on the patient during the procedure and they can take over the counter medications such as Advil or Tylenol to help with the pain afterwards.
