Dental Implants, Sault Ste. Marie Dentist

What is a Dental Implant?

Whether you are missing a single tooth or many teeth, your dentist may be able to help prevent misalignment issues and other problems with a dental implant. 

This small titanium screw acts as a natural tooth root and is surgically placed into the jaw bone, where it will bond with the natural bone to serve as an anchor for a tooth replacement such as a crown. 

Dental implants can also help to resolve jaw joint pain or bite issues, and restore facial tissues and appearance.

Why Replace Missing Teeth

Missing teeth can lead to misalignment issues if the teeth around the gap start to shift out of place. The jaw bone surrounding the area may also begin to deteriorate, leading to facial collapse or negatively affecting your ability to speak and chew. 

The Dental Implant Procedure in Sault Ste. Marie

To perform a dental implant procedure, your dentist will need a dental implant (titanium screw) and a tooth replacement. 

The dentist will surgically place the implant into your jaw bone below the gum tissue. The implant will then bond with the bone and attach to the gum as the tissue heals. 

Once healing has occurred, typically 3 to 6 months post-surgery, patients return to our office to complete the procedure. 

At this last appointment, the dentist will attach a tooth replacement such as a bridge, crown or denture to the implant to offer the appearance and function of a natural tooth, leaving you with an aesthetically pleasing smile.
