ALL-ON-4 IMPLANTS, REPLACING TEETH & ROOTS
Dental Implants: An Ideal Solution for Missing Teeth
Dental implants are essentially a titanium (or titanium alloy) screw that is placed into the gums to replace the roots of a tooth. We use titanium because it’s solid for the long haul and because it doesn’t cause infection or other reactions once placed into the mouth. Dental implants hold a dental prosthesis in place. Implants can support crowns, bridges, fixed dentures, removable dentures, and much more.
When a tooth goes missing, consequences include both physical and cosmetic. Bone loss can eventually occur. That’s why we look to install dental implants in adults who have lost teeth, doing so sooner rather than later to avoid costly and unhealthy effects of waiting. Contact DDS Collingwood for an initial consultation, so that we can assess the condition of your teeth, gums, and jaw when a tooth or teeth are missing.

Dental implants have become a preferred method for replacing missing teeth. However, there are a few things to consider when deciding whether dental implants are right for you including the number of teeth you're missing, the health of your oral/gum tissue, your preference towards dentures, and your ability to commit a few months for treatment.
If you’re considering dental implants but are not sure if they are the right option for you, contact our team at DDS Collingwood. Our team would be happy to discuss your case with you.
Although we recommend that you get a dental implant sooner rather than later, it is possible to get it years after you’ve lost the tooth. The reason is, the longer you leave the space in your mouth means you will have degradation of the surrounding gum and bone structures. Even if it’s been 1, 5, or 10 years after the tooth was lost or extracted, it is still possible that you are eligible for a dental implant.

The dental implant process does take time and will require you to come in for multiple appointments. On average, it can take 3 to 9 months. There are other factors to consider that may impact the time it takes. Factors include your oral health, the location of the dental implant, the number of teeth you want to replace, and whether you’re having a tooth removed first. The actual procedure involves 3 components that will likely have to be done in 2 stages.
