Dental Implant Services
If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants may be able to restore your smile. At Eagle Creek Dental Centre, our Burnaby dental health professionals can place your dental implants and provide a custom restoration that creates a functional set of teeth. Dental implants are a popular method of replacing teeth. Because dental implants are sturdy, they are able to promote oral function in a way that can change patients’ lives by promoting comfort and strength.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant consists of a titanium screw that is surgically placed into the jaw bone. During the healing process, the titanium will fuse with existing jaw bone tissue and create a durable and sturdy replacement for a tooth’s natural root. Once the implant has healed, it will be restored with either a crown, bridge, or denture. The result is a renewed smile that looks as if a tooth never went missing.
There are many reasons why patients may choose dental implants, including:
- Replacing one or more missing teeth
- Alleviating pain associated with existing teeth moving into empty gaps
- Restoring facial skeletal structure and improving jaw bone strength
- Improving eating, speaking, and digestion abilities
- Providing renewed confidence in a beautiful smile
Depending on your individual case, you may require single tooth or multiple teeth replacement. Single tooth replacement places one implant at the site of your missing tooth and tops the implant with a custom-made crown. Multiple teeth replacement involves placing several implants that support and stabilize either a bridge or denture.
Dental Implants in Burnaby, BC
Generally, patients in good oral health qualify for a dental implant procedure. However, certain requirements such as jaw bone density need to be taken into account before your implants are placed. Your initial consultation will involve taking x-rays and a CAT scan to determine whether your jaw is healthy enough to receive implants. Any necessary operative treatments like bone or tissue grafting will need to be performed before moving forward.
At Eagle Creek Dental Centre, we are able to place and restore dental implants in the comfort of our Burnaby dental office. If you have any questions about whether you qualify to receive dental implants, schedule a consultation at our office and speak to our friendly dental team.
