Implants / Dentist Kanata

Implants are indicated whenever at least one tooth is missing. If the missing space(s) is not filled, the teeth surrounding the space often drift, the opposing teeth in the other arch will erupt further into the oral cavity (hypereruption) which can change your bite, bone erosion can occur in the area, and even changes in speech might occur. The popularity of implants has increased steadily over the years.

Implants are designed to replace the root of a missing tooth and can be used to support crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Implant supported dentures have gained a major  popularity in the recent years.  New materials and techniques have made the retention of the implant supported dentures to a greater extent than conventional dentures.

The root-form implant is the most common type and basically consists of three main components:

  1. Implant screw – This part of the implant is made of titanium and is surgically placed in the bone. Titanium is accepted by the body extremely well and fuses with the bone (called osseointegration) during the healing process.
  2. Abutment – This is a metal collar that attaches to the top of the implant screw and is the base for a crown, bridge, or denture.
  3. Crown - The crown is the manufactured tooth that fits on top of the abutment. Bridges and dentures can also be secured to the abutment. The placement of the crown, bridge, or denture is the final step of the implant process.

Please book an appointment with our dentist Dr. Maneet Ahlawat to see if Dental Implants are the right option for you. Kanata Highlands Dental Care provides excellent Dental Implant services to our patients in Kanata.

Dental Implants FAQs:

1. What will happen without treatment?

Your jawbone begins to shrink from lack of stimulation. Losing your teeth will affect your smile and change the shape of your face, causing you to look prematurely aged. Teeth next to the missing tooth can also become loose over time.

2. Who is a candidate?

Dental implants can be placed in most healthy adults. Your dentist will be able to tell you after a checkup if dental implants are right for you.

3. Is implant placement painful?

No, dental implants are typically placed under local anesthesia. Most treatments can be completed in your dentist's office.

4. How soon can I return to work after treatment?

Most people return to work the next day unless otherwise advised by the dentist. You may be prescribed medication to alleviate any minor discomfort you may have.

5. What if there is not enough bone or gum tissue for the dental implant?

A bone graft procedure may be needed if your dentist determines there is not sufficient bone or gum tissue.

6. How long can implants last?

Implants can last many years if cared for properly. Many implants have been in place for more than 40 years.

7. How does the long-term value of implants compare to other treatment options?

Dental implants are low maintenance and provide stability and confidence in your smile. Therefore, the long-term value of dental implants far exceeds conventional treatment options.
