DENTAL IMPLANTS HAMILTON
For dental implants in Hamilton, our dental team offers dental implant services and treatment options. We are trained in implant dentistry, offering dental implant surgery and restorations in-house to replace missing teeth. A dental implant acts as an artificial tooth replacement and is a perfect, permanent solution, unlike a dental bridge or sliding dentures which shift and are removable. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth.
Your Dental Implants Hamilton Solution to Missing Teeth
Dental implants are titanium metal posts that are surgically inserted into the jaw bone beneath your gum line. Local anesthetic is used, for your comfort. These titanium metal posts act as an artificial tooth root for your crown, the artificial tooth part. We will determine if you are a good candidate for dental implant surgery. If you’re experiencing bone loss caused by injury or bone resorption, our dentists will do a bone grafting procedure to reduce bone loss. This new bone structure will hold your implants in place. Our Hamilton dentists then use the dental implant posts to mount dental crowns onto the abutment tooth to restore your smile.

Implant Dentistry to Replace Missing Teeth and Restore Your Natural Looking Smile
Once the titanium metal posts are placed into your jawbone, the bone begins to form around the implant in a process called osseointegration. This will act as the new “root” of your tooth. After approximately three months, the bone will have grown around the implant to firmly hold it in place alongside the rest of your teeth. Once your bone has healed and accepted the dental implants, your replacement tooth (crown or dentures) can be affixed to the abutment which is attached to the screw. This dental procedure will ensure that either a single implant or multiple false teeth remain in place.
Dental implants offer both functionality and appearance benefits to a patient, compared to dentures or a dental bridge, for a more natural looking smile. Replacement teeth are often made from porcelain – a very durable and natural-looking dental material. Many people will not know you have a false tooth or teeth. You will also forget that you have dental implants as the seal between the crown and implant is very strong and isn’t removable without the help of a dentist.
Affordable Dental Implant Hamilton Services
When patients in Hamilton speak to us about dental implants most of them wonder how much a dental prosthetic will cost. Whether you’re missing or have lost teeth because of age, gum disease, or an accident, it’s important for patients to understand all the options available to them. We will always strive to improve their chewing abilities and restore missing teeth within their preferred budget without compromising treatment. Some people worry about the dental implant cost; however, because of their long life, they are cost effective. However, the dentures cost in Canada can vary per province and per dental clinic, especially if you choose dental implants over a removable denture. When you book your consultation with our team of dentists today, we can provide you with an estimated total. Dental implants are better for dental health compared to removable dentures, but they are also excellent for supporting full or partial dentures, known as implant supported dentures, for other affordable options.
Reasons to Smile - Benefits of Dental Implants
Patients do not need to worry about a sore jaw or tooth while eating with dental implants. Dental implants function exactly like natural teeth, so you can bite and chew with full pressure and more comfort. You can eat, smile, and speak with more self confidence.
Dental implants tend to be better for your oral health. They prevent issues for nearby teeth; healthy teeth can shift when there is a gap, eventually falling out if a gap is not addressed. The dental implant post acts like an artificial tooth root for the missing tooth to preserve your jaw bone and facial structure.
Removable teeth, like some dentures, don’t always fit securely enough and require the use of adhesives to hold them in place. This can lead to sore spots or open sores in the mouth. Implants allow for a tight, immovable hold for a proper bite and adhesives are never required. This reduces soreness in the mouth and creates a more comfortable fit.
Ordinary bridges require teeth on either side of a gap in your teeth. Normally, the existing teeth must be resized to accommodate the bridge to fit over them and anchor it in place. Dental implants erase the need to resize one or more existing teeth. Once the screws are attached to the bone, the crown can be secured to the abutment and that’s it!
Dental implant surgery is designed to last a lifetime and has a 98% success rate. You’re able to chew, laugh, talk and smile with confidence knowing your replacement teeth are firmly in place and look just like natural teeth. With the proper care, you can maintain your implant/implants for a lifetime. Because dental implants support better oral health, preserving your facial structure and jaw bone, having dental implants surgically inserted can save you money over the long term, since it can prevent expensive dental surgery work later for these issues.
Many patients are pleased to discover that there is a short recovery time following the dental implant procedure. After several days of sore soft tissues, your tooth-replacement will feel natural and like any other teeth.
Healthy gums and a strong jawbone are essential in supporting your implants. Infections or inflammation of the gums around the implant can lead to pain and discomfort, and in some cases, infection of the bone. To avoid infection and gum disease, proper oral hygiene is required if you have undergone this procedure.
Regular cleanings with a hygienist and routine dental exams ensure that you’ll have a comfortable, healthy experience for years to come. In addition, maintaining good oral health at home is crucial. Daily brushing and flossing are the first steps in maintaining implants and preventing gum disease and other oral issues.
