Dental Implants at Capital Smiledocs Dental Centre
Dental Implants are a wonderful way to replace missing teeth. It can be used for replace one tooth or many. Dental implants are the closest thing to natural teeth. They look, feel and function like natural teeth. When we bite down on a natural tooth, the pressure stimulates the bone underneath the gums and helps to preserve the jaw bone. An implant acts like a tooth to stimulate the jaw bone and helps to maintain bony support. Dental implants have been around for over 20 years now and they have become the treatment of choice in replacing teeth. The success rate of dental implants is over 98% and is now the standard of care for teeth replacement.
The first step is to schedule a FREE consultation with our implant dentist at Capital Smiledocs Dental in Ottawa and Stittsville. The implant dentists will access the bone and surrounding tissues to determine if the missing tooth site is suitable for a dental implant.
Placement of the Dental Implant and Healing Cap
This procedure is done in a completely sterile environment with the best technology available. Our implant dentists use titanium implants and advanced training to provide the gentlest placement possible. A cap is placed on the implant, which allows the gums to heal over the next few weeks.
Removal of the Cap and Impression for a Crown
After several weeks, the bone and implant will be examined for stability and strength. If it is approved, an impression will be made for a Dental Implant Crown. Our dental labs take an average of 1-2 weeks to make the final crown.
Placement of the Dental Implant Crown
The final visit will consist of placing the Implant Crown on the fully healed Dental Implant. Oral hygiene routines, speaking, and eating are not impaired or altered. Dental Implants offer the best tooth replacement option available.
