Dental Implants

A Sustainable Solution for Tooth Replacement

Dental implants are the only recognized type of dental care when it comes to complete tooth replacement (root and crown). If you believe that you may need such a procedure, have a look at our implantology practitioners’ profiles:

Dental Implants

Are you missing one or several teeth? It is important to know that over the past several years, dental implants have become the treatment of choice when it comes to replacing teeth lost to the passage of time.

A dental implant replaces the very root of a tooth. It is produced using titanium alloy and is anchored in the bone of a patient’s jaw. This same material is used in hip and knee replacement surgeries. Implants are hence safe, biocompatible and very sturdy.

Whether you need to replace a tooth or you wish to get rid of a dental prosthesis, a dental implant may just make your dream a reality.

Bone Grafts

A dental bone graft becomes necessary in cases where jaw bones do not have the necessary height for receiving an implant or when a jaw bone is not thick enough. A dental bone graft may also be required if the implant insertion axis is not ideal.  

Thanks to current technology, in a majority of cases we can avoid having to use a patient’s own bone for the graft. Nowadays, the substance most often used for bone grafts is acquired from external sources.

Sinus Lifts

When several teeth are missing from a patient’s upper jaw, the upper jaw bone tissue is resorbed with the passage of time. Gradually, the sinus expands to occupy the vacant space left following the loss of one or many teeth.

 

When this happens, an additional procedure becomes necessary. A sinus lift is performed with the objective of clearing the sinus in order for a bone graft to become possible. This allows us to restore volume to a patient’s jaw so that it can receive a dental implant.

Dental Implant Restorations

Restoring a dental implant consists in fitting a dental crown or a fixed bridge on an implant. This type of restoration delivers optimal results that come close to the visual attractiveness of natural teeth.

Most dental implant restorations are screwed into an implant, thus facilitating its removal when necessary. Maintaining a dental implant restoration is similar to maintaining one’s natural teeth. It is each patient’s responsibility to do so, and it is this very maintenance that will vouch for the success and longevity of implants on a long-term basis.
