Many people lose one or more teeth and will need to choose the best way to replace them. Traditional choices include dental bridges supported by natural teeth, or partial or full dentures, but dental implants offer a long-term solution. Vancity Dental is your Vancouver dental implant resource!
What are Dental Implants?
The easiest way to imagine dental implants is to think of them as being artificial tooth roots. An implant post is inserted into the jawbone during a small surgical procedure. Once in place, the implant post gradually integrates with the surrounding bone. When the implant post is fully integrated, it provides a strong anchorage point for the new tooth.
Dental implants can be used to support single dental crowns, while multiple dental implants can support bridges. We can also provide implant supported dentures that are still removable for easy cleaning, but which will clip firmly into place.
By closely replicating a real tooth root, your dental implants will ensure old bone is constantly renewed
What Are the Advantages of Choosing Dental Implants?
With dental implants, you can enjoy having teeth that feel stable and strong and which will look very natural. Imagine being able to smile and eat in complete comfort, safe in the knowledge that your teeth look great. There are also health benefits in choosing dental implants, as the implant posts are self-supporting and will not require our dentists to modify your natural teeth in any way. Instead, your dental implants will help to stabilise these teeth by preventing further jawbone loss, as this bone loss naturally occurs once your own teeth are removed. By closely replicating a real tooth root, your dental implants will ensure old bone is constantly renewed.
