Don’t let gaps in your smile stop you from smiling. Dental implants give you a durable, comfortable replacement option if you have missing teeth. If you believe you could benefit from dental implants in Winnipeg, you should know a few things before you have the procedure.

Dental Implants 101

A dental implant is an artificial structure made out of biocompatible materials such as metal or ceramic, but most consist of titanium. During the procedure, your dentist fastens the implant directly into your jawbone. The implant acts as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. Occasionally, dentists use implants to attach dentures.

Implants look and feel like your natural teeth. They allow you to eat naturally and maintain adequate oral health. Since implants mimic natural teeth, they are more convenient and durable than removable dentures.

The Procedure

Not everyone can receive a dental implant. Winnipeg candidates must have adequate bone density and a good immune system for an implant to be successful. If you do not qualify for the procedure, your dentist will discuss alternative treatments.

During this procedure, you first undergo surgery. Your dentist administers anesthesia and antibiotics and prepares the area for the implant. He or she then puts the implant in place of the tooth root. Bone tissue must build around the implant to secure it for the next stage of the procedure.

Once the tissue heals and the implant has bonded with your jawbone, your dentist adds an additional support to connect the artificial tooth or bridge. He or she then attaches the artificial tooth to the support.

Post-Surgery Care

After receiving a dental implant, Winnipeg residents care for their replacement teeth the same way as regular teeth. Dental care includes regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups.
