Permanently Replace Missing Teeth

Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement option that can be used to restore your smile if you are missing one or more teeth.

Small titanium screws are placed in the jaw bone, under the gums, and function much like a natural tooth root. Once healed, dental implants are coupled with an artificial tooth, such as a crown, bridge or denture to provide you with a natural-looking smile. 

This versatile tooth replacement option not only restores your smile's appearance, but it can also help prevent surrounding teeth from shifting, resolve bite issues or jaw joint pain, and help restore the natural contour of your jawline.

If you have missing teeth, our dentists in Halifax can work with you to determine whether dental implants are a suitable tooth replacement option for you. 

The Importance of Replacing Missing Teeth

If a tooth is missing, the teeth surrounding the gap often become loose, shift out of place and cause misalignment issues. The jaw bone surrounding the area can also begin to deteriorate, possibly impacting your appearance as well as your ability to chew effectively and speak clearly.

The Dental Implant Process

Your dentist will begin by surgically placing the implant (a titanium screw) into your jawbone. The implant will attach to your gums and bone as it heals.

After the dental implant has been placed, there will be a waiting period while the incision site properly heals. Once the healing is complete, generally a few months post-surgery, you will return to our office for the next step in the process.

At this appointment, your dentist will attach a tooth replacement to the implant. Depending on your particular case, your tooth replacement may be one or more dental crowns, a bridge, or an implant-supported denture.
