What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants, or tooth implants, refer to a range of prosthetics used to replace missing teeth from root to crown. They offer a permanent and stable solution for tooth replacement, providing a look, feel, and function similar to natural teeth. Dental implants also offer valuable oral health benefits, like promoting the health of your jawbone.

Dental implants comprise three parts that combine to form a functional tooth replacement. These components are:

  • The Implant Post: Made from biocompatible materials like titanium, implant posts are surgically placed into your jawbone. The bone fuses with the post in a process called osseointegration, which creates a permanent foundation for your restoration.
  • The Abutment: This component acts as a connector piece between the post and the restoration. It helps provide a secure fit you can rely on while chewing and speaking.
  • The Restoration: The restoration is the part of the dental implant visible above the gum line. The implant-supported restorations we provide include crowns, bridges, and full and partial dentures.

Our Dental Implant Approach

During your first visit, our team will examine your bite to determine whether dental implants are a good option for you. Our general dentist will evaluate if we can repair any compromised teeth before offering services like extractions to make room for your implant. During this assessment, we'll also discuss whether you need any pretreatment services like bone grafts to create a strong base for your replacement tooth.

Using the information we collect, our dentist formulates a treatment plan. We often work alongside trusted specialists like periodontists for the placement procedure. We can also place mini implants in our office for patients where this option is preferred. Our case-by-case approach means you get deeply personalized attention that accounts for your unique oral health situation and restorative needs.

Extensive Restoration Options

Our practice recognizes the wide array of restorative needs of our patients. That's why we've worked hard to expand our offerings over the years to help as many people as possible complete their smiles. The restoration options we provide include:

  • Single-tooth crowns: Perfect for restoring a single tooth, we can place these crowns at any position in your smile.
  • Implant bridges: Bridges are an excellent solution for spanning the gap created by multiple missing teeth in a row. They are secured with implant-supported crowns on either end and offer outstanding stability.
  • Implant-supported dentures: Implant dentures help restore the full function and appearance of a complete arch of teeth. We anchor them with several implant posts placed strategically throughout your jawbone.
  • Mini implants: Mini implants are a great choice if your jawbone density is low. Our team can place these smaller implant posts in-house.

Markham Dental Implant FAQs

We aim to equip you with all the information you need to make confident decisions about your dental care. Our team understands that getting dental implants is a big choice, and we're here for you every step of the way. We'll never rush your appointments and happily address your questions and concerns as they arise. Below are some of the most common inquiries we receive:

Do dental implants require special care?
Dental implants can be cared for much like natural teeth. Daily oral hygiene, like brushing and flossing, is vital to ensuring they last as long as possible. To protect your implants, we also recommend avoiding smoking and reducing your intake of very hard or sticky foods. Attending your routine checkups is also essential, as we can monitor your restorations at these appointments.

How long do tooth implants last?
The implant posts themselves become a permanent part of your dental structure and can last a lifetime with proper care. Restorations can last over a decade if they're well taken care of.

Am I too old for dental implants?
One of the great things about dental implants is that there's no upper age limit. As long as you're in good enough oral and overall health to recover from the procedure, we can use them to replace missing teeth.
