Dental implants are screws made of titanium that are put right into the jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth. After this procedure, the bone around the implants slowly grows into them, which keeps them in place completely.
Then, your dentist or oral surgeon puts crowns on top of the implant that matches the color and shape of your other teeth. This gives you a fixed solution and a smile that looks natural.

There are many advantages to getting dental implants. Here are just a few:
Identical to your natural teeth
There are a lot of different shapes and sizes of dental implants. Your dentist will work with you to make implants that match the color of your other teeth and fit perfectly in the space. The only people who will find out which teeth are dental implants are you and your ORIS dentist.
Enables Natural Speech
Some ways to replace missing teeth, like dentures, can make it harder to say words correctly. Your speech can also change if you are missing teeth. Because dental implants feel and work just like real teeth, they make it easy and natural for you to speak.
Smile with Confidence
Many patients feel much better about themselves after getting a dental implant. However, when you’re missing teeth, you might try to hide your smile or even avoid meeting new people.
After the dental implant procedure, you will have false teeth that look and feel natural. When you feel good about your smile and can eat all your favorite foods again, you may be surprised at how much you start to enjoy life again.
Restores Biting Force
Because a titanium post that replaces the tooth root is screwed into your jaw, dental implants let you bite with the same amount of force as you could with your natural teeth. Other tooth replacement options sit on top of the gums and aren’t fixed in place, so they don’t restore nearly as much of your bite force.

When you lose a tooth, you always lose some bone as well.
It can change how you look, how you talk, how much you enjoy food, and how you feel about yourself. But, also, it will put too much pressure on the teeth next to it.
Dental Implants Procedure
With the dental tools and technology we have now, getting a dental implant is easier and more comfortable than it used to be. With our experience in both surgically placing dental implants and restoring them, we can offer all-in-one care in the comfort of our Richmond Hill Dental office.
Our treatment methods are as different as the people who need them. That’s why we’ll work closely with you to come up with a treatment plan that fits your needs and goals the best. As a result, our patients frequently qualify for implants within a few months after their initial visit to our facility!
How Long Does the Implant Process Take?
Every patient is unique. After our first meeting, we will give you a treatment plan that includes an estimate of how long it will take to finish. The total length of your treatment depends on your needs, your medical and dental history, the condition of your jawbone, and the method and materials we use. It can be as short as a few months or as long as a year or more in some complicated cases. Come see us today in Richmond Hill, Ontario, and we’ll help you make a plan.
To find out if you are a good candidate for dental implants, you will need a full dental exam with x-rays to check the health of your mouth and jawbone. At the same time, we can answer any questions to help you decide if the dental implant service is the best way to fix your smile.
