Missing teeth detract from the smile and may also cause patients in the Kenley and Surrey area to experience reduced ability to eat and speak clearly. Additionally, if patients do not address missing teeth soon enough, other teeth may shift, resulting in the formation of gaps. All of this comes into play when determining what should be done for a patient. However, individual tooth replacement is often solved with the dental implant procedure from The Denture and Implant Clinic.
Dental Implants Basics
Dental implants are titanium posts that function in the same way as a natural tooth root. Once the implant has been placed into the jaw bone, it is restored with a crown, bridge, or denture to replace a single missing tooth, several, or a whole arch.
What Does The Procedure For Dental Implants Entail?
The procedure for placing a dental implant begins with a consultation visit and evaluation with Dr. Suril Amin of The Denture and Implant Clinic. X-rays are taken to see if the patient is an appropriate candidate for an implant. Dental implants require sufficient bone structure for long-term success. Once decided upon, an implant is placed during an oral surgery procedure. Osseointegration (bone fusing to the implant) occurs, and then the patient returns to the practice for the restoration of the implant. The entire process from start to finish may take several weeks or months to complete.
