Dental Implants at TC Smiles

Losing teeth can be difficult and traumatic. With today’s modern dentistry solutions, dental implants offer the next best thing to existing, healthy teeth. A dental implant involves a titanium screw that’s implanted into your jaw bone. A denture, crown, or bridge can then be affixed to the implant. Our detailed planning, skilled treatment and local anaesthesia mean we’ll keep your procedure efficient and comfortable for you.

The Many Advantages of Choosing Dental Implants

Illustration of dental implantsThere are other dental solutions to replace missing teeth, such as a bridge or denture. Dental implants, however, offer many advantages, such as:

  • The look and feel of a natural tooth
  • A permanent, fixed option
  • A high success rate
  • No compromising the neighbouring teeth
  • Easy to maintain just like regular teeth

Why You Need to Replace Missing Teeth

If you have lost a tooth, you might be unable to speak or eat the foods you want. There is another problem, however, with leaving gaps in your smile. The rest of your teeth will begin to shift to cover the gap, leaving your smile compromised, changing your bite and transforming your entire facial profile.

A dental implant is aesthetically pleasing and functions just like a regular tooth. They’ll prevent the shifting of adjacent teeth and can improve the fit and security of your dentures.

Your Initial Consultation

Our skilled dentists will look at the implant site, taking impressions, X-rays and 3D scans. From this information, we can determine if dental implants are right for you. If so, we will continue with the implant procedure.

  • The Implant Placement: The surgery to place the implant is usually straightforward. You’ll be under local anaesthetic. Our implants are the highest quality that is used most on the market today, MIS.
  • The Healing Period: We can wait for up to six months for your implant to integrate into the jawbone. Once this occurs, we can fabricate your crown, bridge or denture to attach it to the implant.

What to Expect

There are three separate stages to getting an implant: your first consultation, the surgical implantation of the implant and the placement of your final restoration on the implant.
