A modern tooth replacement
Dental implants are the best way to replace missing or critically damaged teeth
While many patients are concerned primarily about the aesthetics of a missing tooth, more troubling is the potential damage it can do to the rest of your smile and overall health.
With a dental implant procedure at Burnaby Dental Centre, we can stymie the damage done by a lost or severely damaged tooth and get your health back on track. We offer a full range of dental implant and tooth replacement treatments to ensure your teeth are as healthy as can be.
Dental implant process at Burnaby Dental Centre
When you come to your appointment at Burnaby Dental Centre, you can feel good knowing that we’re doing all we can to provide you with a positive dental implant experience. You’ll start by discussing any concerns you have about your oral health with your dentist. We’ll then conduct a comprehensive exam and take any needed x-rays to get a complete understanding of your oral health.
From there, we’ll discuss treatment options and see if a dental implant is the best possible option for you. Once we decide to move forward, here is what you can expect throughout the process:
- If necessary, we’ll remove your severely damaged tooth or prep the area where you are missing a tooth.
- We’ll replace the root of a tooth with a modern, high-tech dental implant.
- Your implant will be capped with a restoration that will replace the visible part of your missing tooth — usually a crown, denture, or bridge depending on your unique circumstances. All are color matched and custom made to ensure a natural-looking smile and perfect fit.
Throughout the entire process, we’ll be there for you to make sure you have the best experience possible.
Dental Implants FAQ
Are implants a better option than bridges or dentures?
Since a dental implant replaces the entire tooth, not just the visible part above the gum, dental implants help the health of your entire mouth. Not replacing the tooth’s root can cause issues such as bone loss in your jaw and a weakening of the rest of your smile and surrounding teeth.
What can I expect once implant treatment is finished?
Living with dental implants is easy! Given their durability, you can live your life as if your implant was a natural tooth. Just make sure to keep up with dental hygiene by brushing twice a day, flossing, and attending regular cleanings and exams.
