WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
A permanent solution for your missing tooth
Implants are an established and reliable means of replacing one or several missing teeth. An implant is an artificial root made of titanium metal that replaces the tooth root. A ceramic crown or cap, is then placed on top to replace the missing tooth. Dental implants are considered to be minimally invasive. While other procedures like bridgework will affect the surrounding teeth, implants leave your existing teeth untouched. This is incredibly important to the long term health of your mouth.
Are implants for everyone?
Most individuals are suitable candidates for implants. However, the best way to check if implants are a good option for you is to book a consultation so that our Burnaby dental implant dentists may examine you and review all options available to you.
