Replacing lost or extracted teeth with dental implants
- Posted on: Jan 15 2021
At Dr. Slepchik’s office, patients in downtown Montreal who have lost a tooth (or teeth) can discuss with Dr. Slepchik the options available to replace them. Solutions may include dentures, bridges, and dental implants, though many of our patients choose dental implants when replacing one or more teeth. Dental implants are popular for multiple reasons, making them a highly successful option for many patients who are considering tooth replacement.
How do dental implants work?
The bone growth is what stabilizes the implant and allows it to function.. The portion of the implant above the gum line, called the abutment, allows for the placement of different dental restorations, depending on the patient’s needs. This includes the placement of either a dental crown,(or crowns), a dental bridge, or a full denture. Dental implants are versatile and long lasting, providing permanent teeth replacement that lasts many years.
What is required to Get dental implants?
It is essential that patients undergo a comprehensive evaluation with Dr. Slepchik to determine if a patient is a good candidate for this procedure. The best candidates are those without periodontal disease or cavities, and individuals who have sufficient bone to ensure successful placement of dental implants. Bone grafting is an option if necessary to prepare an area that might not otherwise be appropriate for implantation.
