Dental Implant Restoration in Halifax, Nova Scotia

If you would like to permanently replace a missing tooth, dental implant restoration may be appropriate for you. Implant restoration involves placing a titanium metal post into the jawbone into the missing’s tooth’s root. A highly realistic artificial tooth (dental crown) is placed over the metal post to restore your smile. Compared to conventional dentures and dental bridges, implants are fused with your jawbone tissues which create superior stability for the replacement tooth.

To ensure that the implant is properly fused with your bone tissues, you will have to undergo multiple procedures. This includes:

  • Planning where to place the implant(s)
  • Creating an incision into the oral tissues for the implant(s)
  • Placing the implant(s) into the bone tissues
  • Allowing the tissues to heal
  • Creating an opening for the implant(s) to attach the crown(s) when the tissues have fully healed

As a result, the entire process can take many months to properly place an implant. But once the implant is fused with your tissues, it won’t shift, become loose, or move around, which can happen to dentures and bridges. In addition, because an implant is constructed of titanium steel, it won’t break down and can last a lifetime with proper care.

Another great benefit of dental implants is that they strengthen adjacent teeth and bone tissues. When a tooth falls out, the gap left behind places additional stress on neighboring teeth. As a result, they can become weaker which can cause shifting and loosening to occur. An implant keeps neighboring teeth in place and provides additional support when chewing and speaking.

Also, because an implant is placed directly into your jawbone tissues, it helps to support your overall facial structure. Bone demineralization is one consequence of missing teeth which can lead to a smaller shrunken jaw. However, an implant helps to prevent this since it replaces the missing tooth’s root.
