Dental Implants in the Sault
At Bay Dental Group in Sault Ste. Marie, we offer dental implants to our patients in the Sault looking to fill gaps in their smile.
Dental implants are inserted by our team during a short surgical procedure. During the surgery, the titanium ‘root’ is implanted into the jaw bone.
What is implant dentistry?
Implant dentistry is a specialized but broadening field of dentistry that deals with the placement and restoration of dental implants. At Bay Dental Group in Sault Ste. Marie, we believe implant dentistry can help play a role in restoring your smile.
What are the benefits of implants?
One of the major benefits of implant dentistry is the custom fit within the mouth, appearing to naturally blend with the surrounding teeth. Dental implants also tend to feel normal causing the wearer to be less conscious of them, versus removable dentures and bridges.
How do implants work?
Dental implants are similar to actual teeth and are anchored within the bone of the jaw.
The jaw bone accepts and accommodates the titanium post, fusing it into place.
Implant dentistry is a surgical procedure and typically involves a preparation into the bone. Once the bone has fused or grown onto the surface of the implant, a dental crown or crowns are positioned on the implant.
The healing process typically takes anywhere from 2-6 months for full procedure recovery.
All-on-Four™ is a procedure that allows our patients to receive a full fixed (non-removable) bridge placed on as few as four implants all in one appointment.
What is All-on-Four™?
All-on-Four™ is a procedure that allows dental professionals to place a full fixed (non-removable) bridge on as few as four implants all in one appointment.
The All-on-4 procedure consists of creating a fully customized denture based on only four titanium posts acting as pillars to the bridge supporting the prosthetic teeth using existing jaw bone.
How can All-on-Four™ fit into my customized treatment plan?
Your Bay Dental Group dental team will develop a personalized treatment plan dependent on your specific case. While in some instances, you may have a fully functioning temporary tooth or teeth the same day as your implant therapy.
Some of the All-on-Four procedure costs may be covered by your insurance plan and you should contact your insurance provider to inquire.
