Replace Teeth With Dental Implants in Winnipeg, MBDental Implants at Lakewood Dental Centre Read Transcript
The field of dental implants has exploded from the standpoint it used to be something that was very limited and had a whole bunch of areas that could only be well-suited but in today's environment, implants can be as simple as replacing one tooth or as complicated as replacing all of the teeth. So there are those situations that says it is a very conservative method in order to replace a single tooth, but at the same time, as is it in order to replace all of the teeth, it can be done that way as well. The advantage of implants these days is that the field is very diverse, it has many different choices and many different options, and therefore again, can be really well-tailored to the individual. That says it is for those people that want to have comprehensive care, it can be certainly something that benefits them. For those people that have a single tooth that needs to be replaced, it's far preferable than cutting down teeth that are natural and healthy in order to restore them. So for the right situation and for the right situation, the implants are the best way for the patient to go. We've had many success stories from everybody that's had single implants where they’ve kind of gone at it—that was the best answer to the problem because it was the least involved and it saved everything else around it. There are those patients who have done and have had all their teeth replaced on four implants and for those people, it's a quality of life changed. They've gone from having teeth that didn't function, didn't feel comfortable, to teeth that virtually feel like their own.
General dentist Dr. Rose Dhillon and our team of Winnipeg dentists can replace missing teeth with dental implants, preserve the jawbone structure, and improve your smile. They can even provide dental implants in a single day for qualified patients using the All-on-4® technique.

Get Security, Durability, & More With Implants
Many people find that implants look, feel, and function more like their natural teeth than other tooth replacements such as traditional dentures. Their benefits include:Doctor Doug McDermid on dental implants Read Transcript
Dental implants have been around a long time, and they've gone under a lot of renovations. The series that we now have give us the capacity to pretty much restore teeth in a way that is as good as your natural teeth. That's quite different than the way it used to be, in that in today's world, implants have been able to provide people comfort, function, and aesthetics, which are some of the key characteristics of what people are interested in.
- Security – Because they are embedded right the jaw, implants are meant to stay in place.
- No modification of healthy teeth. Implants attached to dental crowns or bridges may not require modification of surrounding healthy teeth.
- Continued oral health – They stimulate the jaw much like real tooth roots do. This can help maintain bone density.
- Durability – With proper care, implants can last a lifetime.
- Low maintenance – Regular, careful brushing and flossing are generally all that’s needed to care for implants, as well as regular checkups at our office.
- Versatility – They can replace a single missing tooth or a mouthful of missing teeth. We can attach dental crowns, dental bridges, and dentures on implants to replace teeth.
Ask About Same-Day All-On-4® Dental Implants
For someone who's missing a back tooth, such as a molar, there are technologies that we can use to help build back that tooth into the mouth so that they can chew and function normally. One way we do that is through dental implants. A dental implant is placed right into the jawbone, and a crown, or a cap, is placed on top of it, which simulates a tooth. And so this is a great technology that allows people to be able to chew again and function again, and just improves the quality of their life.
With the All-on-4® dental implant technique at Lakewood Dental Centre, an entire arch of replacement teeth can be supported by as few as four implants. This allows our dentists and our specialist partner to place and restore on the same day using only local anaesthetic.
How a Dental Implant Procedure Works
The structure of an 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. The body generally accepts titanium, so it’s able to bond with the jaw for a firm hold. The above-the-gum part of a dental implant is covered with a replacement tooth to complete your smile and make biting easier.
