Dental implants have been changing lives for over 35 years. Dental implants are designed to form the foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. With implants, you can smile, laugh and speak with confidence.
How Implants Work
Dental implants are titanium root replacements that are placed into the jawbone where the teeth are missing. In a minimum of 3 months time, the jaw bone bonds with the titanium implants, building a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Implants can be used to support a single tooth or a number of dental prostheses, including crowns or implant-supported bridges and dentures. The implants also help to preserve facial structure and prevent bone shrinkage when teeth are missing.
With dental implants, you can restore your beautiful smile and confidence. Contact Yam Dental, your Newmarket dental office at (905) 836-0836 for a complimentary consultation!
Why dental implants?
Implants are a preferred method to bridges because they do not sacrifice the structures of the adjacent teeth to anchor the bridge. Implants are chosen over dentures as the latter may move and slip overtime, making them uncomfortable and, at times, embarrassing to wear.
Does dental implants hurt?
You will not feel anything during the procedure as the area is numbed by dental anesthetic. The recovery period is associated with very little discomfort as the implants are placed gently into the jawbone. If necessary, our dentist will prescribe you with the appropriate pain medication for your discomfort while you are recovering.
How long does it take for the implant to integrate with my jawbone?
It takes at least 3 months for the implant to bond well to the jawbone. This waiting period is necessary for a stable foundation, which is essential for the success of the treatment.
When do I get my tooth/teeth on the implant?
After the implant fused to your jawbone, you are ready to move to the next phase when we will start making new teeth for you. The entire procedure from the surgical implanting to getting your new teeth is typically 4 to 6 months.
My friend got a same day implant, what does that mean?
In selective cases, the implants are placed on the same day as teeth extractions, minimizing surgical procedures.
What is bone grafting?
Bone grafting is done to build up the deficient bone area in your jaw. The goal is to rebuild a solid foundation to the supporting bone where the implants will be placed. Not all implant patients need bone grafting, this procedure is done when there is not sufficient bone in the future implant site.
