Thinking about replacing your missing or extracted tooth with a dental implant in Caledon East, Ontario? You are on the right track! Dental implants from Humber Valley Dental are everything you’d want in a tooth replacement — they are strong, durable, beautiful, functional, and the list can go on and on. Unlike other teeth replacements, dental implants are surgically placed in your jawbone to provide a lifetime of aesthetics and function.

What to expect from dental implant treatment?

A dental implant is a titanium post placed at a precise position in the jawbone. The titanium fixture acts like the natural tooth, beginning at the tooth’s base and extending beneath the gum line. This unique design makes dental implants far superior to other teeth replacements. 

Placing implants takes several months, but it’s well worth the wait because you’ll get something close to the real deal. All dental implant treatments start with a consultation with our dental team. This consultation examines your oral and general health to establish your eligibility for implants. Typically, you should be in good health and have sufficient jawbone to become eligible for implants. 

After the initial exam, the next step is implant surgery. Before this procedure, we numb your gums with local anesthesia to minimize pain. Nevertheless, if you experience dental anxiety, please don’t hesitate to discuss our sedation dentistry options with us. Once comfortable, the dentist carefully places a titanium post at a specific place in the jawbone. Then, we leave the implant for four to six months to fuse with the bone through osseointegration

Once your implant heals, we’ll place an abutment above the implant. This prosthetic extends about the gum line to link the implant to your crown. The final step is to cap your implant with a natural-looking crown. After the dental implant treatment, you can eat, laugh, and talk without worrying about wobbly or wonky teeth.
