How Dental Implants Work
The structure of a dental implant is similar to that of your natural tooth. The below-the-gum part that acts like a tooth’s root is made of titanium. Titanium is biocompatible. Bone grows around the implant to make it stable. The above-the-gum part of a dental implant is covered with a replacement tooth to complete your smile and improve function.
Dr. McDermid and Dr. Dhillon partner with a specialist who uses 3-D imaging to place dental implants. Then, one of our doctors will complete the process by restoring the dental implant with a replacement tooth.
Same-Day All-On-4® Dental ImplantsJim B. on dental implants
The traditional dental implant process requires a dental implant for each replacement tooth. Time must be allowed for healing between placing the dental implant and restoring it. But what if you want new teeth right away?
With the new All-on-4® technique, an entire arch of replacement teeth can be supported by as few as four dental implants. This allows our dentists and our specialist partner to place and restore on the same day using only local anaesthetic. If you are a candidate for this procedure, you may be able to come into the office with an incomplete smile and leave with a mouth full of new teeth.
Dental implants can support your dentures with a tight, reliable hold and reduce gum irritation. We offer implant-supported dentures.
Find out if you’re a good candidate to get a dental implant by calling (204) 977-8515 or using our online form to schedule a consultation with Lakewood Dental Centre in Winnipeg, MB. Your jawbone needs to be robust enough to support teeth implants. Our dentist will examine your jawbone and talk to you further about your dental implant options or alternatives.
