Dental Implants in Pickering
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are used to replace missing teeth. Many types of dental devices such as crowns, bridges, or dentures can be supported by dental implants. Implants also help prevent bone loss in your jaws as you age.
How implants work
The dental implant is a titanium post that looks similar to a common screw. The implant is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. In the case of implant-supported dentures, multiple implants may be used. Once the implant has been placed, the area is left to heal. During healing, the bone will begin to bond with the implant and hold it firmly in place. After the healing is complete, we can attach a crown or other device to the implant to restore the missing tooth or teeth.
