Dental Implants in Burlington Ontario - Maple Mews Dental

Missing teeth can be replaced with implants, bridges or dentures. Dental implants can replace one or several teeth at one time. A dental implant is completed in stages and may take 3-6 months to complete. Dental Bridges most commonly replace 1 or 2 teeth at a time and are anchored by the teeth beside the space, thus the name “bridge”. A bridge can be completed in approximately 10-14 days . Dentures can also replace teeth, including replacing a single or several teeth. A denture is a removable appliance. Implants, bridges and dentures are all great options to replace teeth, our team at Maple Mews Dental is happy to answer any questions you may have about the ideal option for you!

 

Some may choose to leave a space and not replace a missing tooth, this is always an option. The space left by a missing tooth can lead to several different types of oral health complications.

That’s because teeth are placeholders for one another. If a tooth is missing for a long period of time, the other teeth that are adjacent or opposite may shift and change the way your teeth bite together. You also need your teeth to chew, missing teeth can cause difficulty chewing and the stress on the remaining teeth can lead to further dental problems.

 

An implant is placed in two phases.  

 

An implant uses a titanium anchor that is medically pure, which is implanted into the jaw bone if it has the mass and strength to support it. During your healing period, it will encourage further bone and tissue growth. Once the implant is ready, an artificial tooth is placed on the anchor by the Dr Rzepka or Dr Parker and the surrounding teeth are treated if necessary to ensure a perfect fit. The artificial tooth will be made to match the natural shape of your teeth and will be essentially indistinguishable from a natural tooth. It will look the same and act much like your natural tooth - giving you a stable and durable chewing surface.

 

Your dental implants will last many years with proper oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist, who can ensure its durability and functionality. The implant can only be removed and given thorough maintenance by the dentist. We provide DENTSPLY implants:
