If you are considering replacing a missing tooth, our dentists at Cityview Family Dental Centre in Ottawa can assist you with your dental implant needs.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium that is surgically anchored to your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. Implants are fused into your jawbone, and do not rely on neighbouring teeth for support.
Once the titanium root is placed into your bone, your dentist will allow for the tissue and bone to fuse and heal around the implant. Then a dental crown can be attached to the root, restoring your smile.
The entire process usually takes about two to nine months, depending on your treatment plan.
The success of your implant depends on how quickly you heal as well. Once the implant has healed by fusing to the bone, your dentist can create a replacement restoration that is attached to your implant that acts and looks like your natural tooth.
