Dental Implants in Winnipeg
If you are missing teeth, you might feel like your replacement options are limited to regular dentures or bridges. But thanks to dental implants, you have another option—one that is long-lasting, durable, and natural-looking.
Dental implants are unique because they don’t rely on adjacent teeth for support. Instead, they’re secured by an artificial root, which is precision-milled out of titanium. The implant is installed via dental surgery.
Implants can be used to support:
- A crown
- A bridge
- A set of dentures
- Replacement teeth
The titanium root anchors directly into the jawbone for a durable, long-lasting fit. Many of our patients choose dental implants to replace missing teeth. They may be the right choice for you, too.
How Dental Implants Work
Installing dental implants takes place over several months.
During the first appointment, the titanium root will be surgically inserted into the jawbone. Then, the dentist will wait until the area heals completely and the implant has formed a strong bond with the bone (a process called osseointegration that takes about 3 months).
Next, the dentist attaches an abutment into the implant. This is what keeps the replacement tooth anchored to the titanium root. Finally, the crown is installed into the implant.
To support and care for your dental implant, it’s important to maintain excellent oral hygiene. You can brush and floss your replacement teeth just like natural teeth! This ensures that your gums and bone remain healthy enough to support the root. Prevent gum disease by abstaining from smoking and maintaining a healthy, nutritious diet.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Are dental implants right for you? Consider the following benefits that they offer, which can significantly improve your quality of life:
They look and function like natural teeth
Without implants, you may have trouble chewing certain foods due to gaps in your smile. Instead, you settle for soft foods just to avoid pain. Live your life to the fullest with dental implants!
Dental implants can withstand the strong forces of your jaws. Dental implants are indiscernible from your other teeth—no one will know that you’ve had them installed! Even you might forget that they aren’t your natural teeth.
The procedure isn’t painful!
The idea of having an implant installed might make you wince, but fear not! We administer a freezing agent so that you’re totally numb—you may feel pushing and pressure, but no pain.
Restore your smile
If you have missing teeth, you may feel self-conscious when you smile. For many of us, our self-esteem is connected to how confident we feel about our teeth. Replace decaying teeth and fill the gaps in your smile with dental implants.
Say goodbye to slipping dentures
Regular dentures may slip out when you speak, chew, or smile, which can be an embarrassing experience! What if there was a way to make your replacement teeth more secure? There is:
Implant-supported dentures provide a permanent tooth replacement. The implants integrates with the jaw, which means that it continually stimulates the bone. This can help prevent issues associated with missing teeth, which can include bone loss and facial collapse.
