Dental Implants

What is an implant?

Implants are a piece of titanium that are placed in your jawbone so that you can have teeth replaced. They are also a solution for uncomfortable or loose dentures. With proper care, implants can last a very long time.

What is the procedure like?

Typically, local anesthesia ("usual freezing") is used and the procedure can take as little as 30 minutes depending on the number of implants being placed. Normally, you will be able to return to work the next day unless instructed otherwise. You may be prescribed medication to maintain comfort during the healing process.


Did you know that even the loss of one tooth might result in movement of neighbouring or opposing teeth? The loss of several teeth can not only affect your inability to chew and speak, but cause increased stress on jaw joints and facial muscles when your bite is collapsed. It can also result in an older facial appearance and noticeable facial lines due to a reduction in the vertical dimension of your face.
Implants can last many years if cared for properly.
