Complete Your Smile With Dental Implants
Dental implants are a popular dental restoration option for individuals who have lost one or more teeth due to injury, decay, or periodontal disease. At Dr. Sherman Ki & Associates in Oshawa, our qualified dental professionals commonly perform dental implant procedures.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically inserted into the jawbone, where it serves as a replacement for the missing tooth root. Once the implant is in place, a dental crown or bridge can be attached to the post, providing a secure and natural-looking replacement tooth.
How are dental implants placed?
The dental implant procedure typically involves a series of appointments. During the first appointment, our dentist will evaluate your oral health and take X-rays to determine the best placement for the implant. You may also need to undergo bone grafting or other procedures to prepare the jawbone for the implant. Once the implant site is ready, our dentist will insert the titanium post into the jawbone. Over several months, the bone will grow around the post, fusing it to the jaw and creating a solid foundation for the replacement tooth. When the implant has fully fused with the jawbone, our dentist will attach an abutment to the post, which will serve as a connector for a dental crown or bridge. The final step in the process is to attach the replacement tooth, which will be custom-designed to match your natural teeth and blend seamlessly into your smile.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants can replace dentures or other removable appliances, providing a more permanent and comfortable solution. Dental implants are a durable replacement for missing teeth and can last many years with proper care and maintenance.
Dental implants may be the right choice for you if you are looking for a reliable and long-lasting tooth replacement option. Contact us today to schedule a consultation to see if dental implants can help restore your smile.
