Dental implant

If you are missing one or more teeth, there are several options available to replace them. One of these options is a dental implant, which consists of three parts. The first is what replaces the root of the tooth, the second is a connector and the third is the crown. At Centre dentaire NP, your dental clinic in Kirkland in the West Island, we offer high quality dental service to provide you with a smile that is not only aesthetically pleasing but provides functionality as well.

Dental Implant: Information to help make your decision

A dental implant integrates into our jawbone, which is called osseointegration, essentially fusing into the bone. This process allows you the ability to have a true replacement of your natural teeth while maintaining a beautiful smile. This option is a less invasive process when compared to a dental bridge, as there is no preparation of neighboring teeth that is required. A dental implant can be a replacement of a single tooth, prosthesis (partial or complete) or a bridge can be placed on top of dental implants (replacement of multiple teeth).

The different components and steps to place a dental implant

  • The consultation: at this appointment the dentist will evaluate your dentition to evaluate your needs. A 3D scan is then taken to determine the density, height and quality of bone and then virtually plan the surgery. Once the scan is taken, the dentist will be able to let you know the steps to the dental implant placement.
  • Dental implant: under local anesthetic, the dentist will make an incision in your jawbone to place the dental implant. Once it is placed the dentist will close the area with sutures.
  • Osseointegration: this healing process has a time frame of 4-6 months so that the bone of the jawbone can form and keep the implant solid.
  • Abutment: once the area has healed, the abutment (connector) is placed on top of the implant. This part plays a role in connecting the implant to the crown.
  • Crown: once you are ready for this step, the dentist will take a dental impression of the area to fabricate a crown that is a replicate of your natural tooth.

Dental implant: Why should I choose this treatment?

1. For a durable and solid solution

As the implant is one of the only replacement solutions that integrate into the bone (osseointegration), the dental implant stays strong and can last for several years!

2. For a continuous stimulation of the jawbone

As the dental implant sits in the bone and replaces your root, this continues stimulating the area, keeps it healthy and prevents bone loss.

3. For a natural replacement

The dental implant will serve as a solid and esthetically pleasing solution as it replaces your natural tooth. It integrates into your dentition harmoniously and allows you to enjoy your meals!

4. For a secured and harmonious replacement

The virtual planning that is offered at Centre dentaire NP, allows surgical precision and ensures that your tooth is replaced with your natural dentition in a safe manner.
