Dental Implants in West & North Vancouver

Replace Your Missing or Failing Teeth

Dental implants are changing the lives of our patients. They have become the preferred method to replace missing and failing natural teeth.

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is simply an artificial tooth root. Dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth or an entire set of teeth. With over forty years of research with outstanding long-term results, many studies have found that the success rate for today’s dental implants is as high as 98%. In the hands of properly trained and skilled dental implant surgeons, implants are a safe, predictable and often the most preferred alternative to the traditional way teeth were replaced (bridges, dentures).

Highly specialized in periodontal and implant surgery, North Shore Smile offers a variety of treatments, including single dental implants, all-on-four implants, and comprehensive bone grafting, to enhance oral functionality and aesthetics.

After Dental Implant Surgery

For those who have undergone dental implant surgery, post-operative care is critical to ensure the success and longevity of the implants. It involves maintaining excellent oral hygiene, following specific dietary recommendations, and attending follow-up appointments. These steps help in preventing infection and ensuring that the implants bond properly with the bone.

What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

  • Dental implants provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
  • With a dental implant, you will be able to eat virtually anything. With bridges or dentures, you need to be more selective about what you eat.
  • Not only do they give you more freedom, but replacing missing teeth with dental implants helps preserve your jawbone and restore youthful facial contours.
  • Dental implants also have some advantages over natural teeth. They do not decay or need root canal treatment.
  • Durability and longevity: they last longer than conventional options like tooth-supported bridges.
  • Get your smile back! Patients with dental implants can smile with confidence again.

What are Dental Implants Made Of?

The implant is made of a biocompatible material, medical-grade titanium, so it is well accepted by the body with no fear of rejection. The implants are placed into the bone where teeth are missing. The bone then bonds to the implant surface creating a strong foundation for the artificial teeth. An abutment is a component that is fastened to the implant and extends through the gum tissue to serve as an attachment for the replacement teeth.

To sum it up there are three parts needed to provide you with new teeth – the dental implant, an abutment, and the replacement tooth or teeth

Whether you’re looking to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants can provide you with the support you need for a natural-looking smile.  Give us a call today and schedule a consultation to see if dental implants are right for you!
