Dental Implants in Mississauga
Dental implants are a permanent treatment often used to fill a void left by a missing tooth. The implant connects to the jawbone, providing support and structure to keep the bone intact. Other restorative or cosmetic pieces are usually combined with a dental implant, such as a dental crown or fixed dental bridge. Our dental professionals are experienced in this more complex procedure.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
The condition of your jawbone and gums and the space available in your mouth will determine whether dental implants are right for you. Other factors that determine whether our dentists will suggest this procedure include whether you’re a heavy smoker, have an alcohol addiction, or suffer from certain chronic diseases. Our dental professionals will conduct a complete oral exam before discussing the treatment options that are best for you.
What to Expect During the Procedure
The full procedure for placing dental implants requires several visits to include time for measuring, installing, healing, and adding the tooth replacement component. Dental implants are titanium screws or posts that are installed directly into the jawbone. Each step of the procedure will require different levels of anesthesia to keep you comfortable and pain-free. If you have anxiety over complex dental procedures, talk to our dentists about sedation dentistry options that can help you feel more at ease.
