Dental Implants in Brossard

Dental implants are used to replace missing roots and support artificial replacement teeth. Implants consist of an artificial root made of titanium metal. It is inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of the natural tooth. An artificial replacement tooth is attached to the implant. The implant acts as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth in place. They are comfortable and look like natural teeth.

How are dental implant procedures performed?

1. Your dentist or oral surgeon inserts a small metal stud into the jaw beneath the gum tissue.
2. As the tissue heals with stitches, the implant will bond with the bone and attach to the gum. It can take several months to heal.
3. The post or implant forms a solid base for receiving one or more artificial teeth.

Because the implant fits into the jaw’s bone structure, it can be treated like a natural tooth except that it is more delicate. This means it must be given careful cleaning during brushing and flossing. A toothbrush with a longer bristle tip can help you clean behind the implant.

Finally, you should floss at least once a day, paying particular attention to the junction of the implant and the gum. Using a dental floss holder can be helpful in achieving optimal cleaning.

Implants are not for anyone

You must:

  • Be in good general health.
  • Have healthy gums.
  • Have enough bone in the jaw to support the implant.

If your jawbone has shrunk or if it has not developed normally, you may be able to have a bone graft to build up the bone. A bone graft is a way of adding new bone to your jawbone. Your dentist or dental specialist will tell you if bone grafting can be done.

You must also be prepared to:

  • Get examined by your dentist or dental specialist several times. Regular dental checkups are important so your dentist can make sure that your bite is right and that your implants are not loose.
  • Care for your implants properly and effectively.
