Dental Implants in Saskatoon at Willowgreen Dental

As we get older, we can experience tooth loss due to factors like excessive tooth decay or periodontal disease. Missing teeth can also be caused by injury or trauma. The impact of losing a tooth extends beyond the physical, affecting self-esteem and overall well-being. Dental implants are often considered the best permanent solution for replacing missing teeth. 

Our success is a testament to our exceptional dental service and commitment to patient care.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants have become a popular alternative to traditional bridges and removable dentures. The surgical procedure involves metal posts placed into the jawbone beneath your gums through minor surgery. These posts act as replacement tooth roots and provide a strong foundation for removable or permanent teeth.

Key Benefits of Dental Implants

Improved Speech

Gaps or missing teeth can alter speech patterns, leading to lisps or increased mumbling. Tooth implants restore your mouth's natural movement and rhythm, enhancing speech clarity and overall comfort in communication.

Increased Comfort

They can help address uncomfortable feelings associated with cracked or missing teeth. With implants, you can experience improved comfort in daily activities, such as chewing and talking.

Boosted Confidence

Dental issues, such as missing or stained teeth, can significantly impact self-esteem. Dental implants provide a long-term solution to improve oral health and regain confidence in your appearance. You will no longer have to hide your smile or worry about loose dentures.

Long-Term Solution

They can last 25 years or more with proper care and maintenance. Implants provide a permanent, long-lasting solution for missing teeth, unlike other restorative treatment options, such as dentures, which need regular replacements.

Improved Oral Health

They prevent bone loss and maintain the integrity of your jawbone. They also do not require any alteration or support from neighboring teeth, unlike dental bridges, which can cause damage to healthy teeth to provide support for missing ones.

Our Dental Implant Procedure

Dental crowns are necessary in several situations, such as:

1.

Personalized Treatment Plan

At Willowgreen Dental, we prioritize individualized care by meticulously developing an implant treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Our experienced dentists will thoroughly examine your teeth, jawbone structure, and overall oral health to determine the best course of action for your dental procedure.

2.

Dental Implant Surgery

Once your personalized treatment plan is established, our skilled dentists will perform the dental implant surgery. This involves placing a titanium post into the jawbone as an artificial tooth root. The surgery is typically done under local anesthesia and can take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours, depending on the number of implants being placed.

3.

Jawbone Fusion (Osseointegration)

While recovering, your jawbone gradually fuses around the replacement tooth root. This process, known as osseointegration, is crucial for the success of your dental implant. It usually takes around three to six months for complete fusion to occur.

4.

Abutment Placement

After the fusion, we will create an abutment connecting the post to the replacement tooth or color-matched dental crown. We will screw the abutment, which will serve as a connector for the replacement tooth and implants.

5.

Customized Crown Development

After taking an impression of your bite, we will design a custom crown tailored to fit seamlessly into your mouth. This personalized approach ensures optimal functionality and aesthetics. The custom crown will be made from high-quality durable materials such as porcelain or ceramic to match the color and texture of your natural teeth.
