Vancouver Dental Implants - Replace Missing Teeth
Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances.
Dental implants in Vancouver are artificial roots and teeth (mostly titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by a dentist or Periodontist - a specialist of the gums and supporting bone. The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile!
Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable and will last many years, but on occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear.
Dental implants are an effective and permanent solution for missing teeth. Whether you’ve had a tooth extracted by an emergency dentist in Vancouver or have several severely damaged teeth, our dentists can help. Our skilled Vancouver dentists provide both single dental implants and implant-supported dentures.
High-quality dental implants are very durable and will last for many years. These appliances are surgically placed in the jaw by a dentist in downtown Vancouver, a periodontist, or an oral surgeon. Consisting of a titanium post topped by a natural-looking crown, the implant will restore your smile’s look and function.
Dental implants offer a host of benefits. They can resolve joint pain or bite problems, restore chewing and speaking abilities, and even enhance the overall look of the jaw. Don’t let missing teeth affect your self-confidence.

What does getting dental implants involve?
The process of getting implants requires a number of visits over several months.
X-rays and impressions (molds) are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant. While the area is numb, the implant will be surgically placed into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate itself onto the bone for up to six months. Depending on the type of implant, a second surgery may be required in order to place the “post” that will hold the artificial tooth in place. With other implants, the post and anchor are already attached and placed at the same time.
After several weeks of healing the artificial teeth are made and fitted to the post portion of the anchor. Because several fittings may be required, this step may take one to two months to complete. After a healing period, the artificial teeth are securely attached to the implant, providing excellent stability and comfort to the patient.
You will receive care instructions when your treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new implant. Visit us at, Coquitlam Dental implant, or, Vancouver Dental Implant, Centers for a consultation.
