If you need to replace a missing tooth, or multiple teeth, dental implants are often the best option.
Modern advancements in dentistry have made dental implants one of the most effective, long-term solutions for broken or missing teeth.
Dental implants are comprised of the root device and the abutment. The root device is placed within the jawbone and is commonly made of titanium. It may be shaped like an actual tooth root, or it may look more similar to a normal screw or titanium implant. The visible part of a dental implant, the abutment, is designed to flawlessly match the rest of your teeth. It has the same use and strength of a regular tooth.
Dental implants are customized to fit your specific needs. They’re designed to last a lifetime, so, if properly cared for, you should not need to get them replaced over time. At Kelowna’s Dental Solution, you’ll be sedated before being fitted with your new dental implant. Numbing agents may be used, or you may be may be anesthetized for the process. The healing time of dental implants is fairly short, and Dr. Mark Provencher and his Dental Solutions staff will provide aftercare tips. Follow up visits to check-up on the healing process are recommended.
Dental implant surgery offers a welcome alternative to dentures or bridgework that don’t fit well. The major benefit of implants is solid support for your new teeth — a process that requires the bone to heal tightly around the implant.
Dr. Mark Provencher at Kelowna’s Dental Solutions has the training and experience you need for your dental implant surgery. By providing you with a thorough explanation of the procedure, the costs, and the healing time, Dr. Provencher will steer you confidently towards your beautiful new smile.
