Missing a tooth negatively impacts your general health and can cause embarrassment. Over time, your teeth will shift as your body naturally tries to correct the problem. However, this shifting can lead to serious damage to your jawbone. We offer local dental implant placement services to patients in Markham and nearby areas.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that is inserted into your jaw. A replacement tooth or bridge is attached to the artificial root.
Dental implants are usually 4-5 millimetres in diameter. However, some problems require a screw with a smaller diameter. These are called “mini implants.” We often use mini implants to secure dentures.
All-on-4 (Teeth in a Day) Provider
If you have lost many teeth on your upper or lower jaw, or if you have many teeth that are damaged or badly decayed, All-on-4 may be the solution to restore your smile. All-on-4 lets you completely restore your smile with a full set of attractive, permanent replacement teeth in as little as one day.
The All-on-4 solution consists of four dental implants supporting a permanent set of replacement teeth. If you don’t require bone grafts or other augmentation to your jawbones, we can place your implants, design your replacement teeth and place them in one appointment.
All-on-4 provides many significant advantages over traditional dentures or bridgework. The All-on-4 replacement teeth provide much higher chewing function than removable dentures, they are less expensive than multiple implant-supported bridges, they are more comfortable than removable dentures, and they don’t need to be removed for cleaning. Because they are permanently mounted in your mouth, the All-on-4 replacement teeth will never slip or shift while speaking or eating.
The All-on-4 procedure will depend on your specific needs, but the process is similar for all patients. We begin by scanning your mouth to determine where to place the implants and how to design and place your replacement teeth. Then it will be necessary to extract all the teeth from the row where the All-on-4 replacement is being placed, after which we will place the implants in your jaw. Once the implants are placed we will permanently attach the replacement teeth, and you can immediately begin enjoying your new smile.
