What Are Dental Implants?
Dr. Slepchik Restores Dental Implants In His Downtown Montreal Dental Office
Your dental implant process begins with your diagnosis and ends with the placement of the implant restoration. At his downtown Montreal dental office, Dr. Slepchik offers various options, ranging from a single tooth crown restoration to a full arch replacement with implant supported dentures or bridges.
Dr. Slepchik works very closely with his dental team, including an oral surgeon and a dental ceramicist. The maxillo-facial surgeon performs the surgical elements. The ceramicist creates the tooth coloured restorations from the specific impressions provided by Dr. Slepchik. Dr. Slepchik combines the science of dentistry with the art of dentistry to create restorations that are both functional and look great.
Said to a new patient coming from a long time patient leaving our office after his appointment ~ “You are very lucky to have found this dental office. I have been a patient of Dr. Slepchik for 35 years and have only wonderful things to say.” ~ F. L.

Benefits of Dental Implants
Missing a tooth (or teeth) affects your general health as well as the health of the remaining teeth in your mouth. When you are missing teeth, you lose your ability to chew your food and therefore are missing essential nutrients. A space in your mouth because you have lost a tooth allows the remaining teeth to tip over or move. This situation creates more serious problems and also impacts greatly on your appearance. Your cheeks sink inwards. Implants allow you to retain the natural shape of your face and smile. We notice when we meet a new patient who is missing teeth, they are often reluctant or too embarrassed to smile.
The implant will protect your healthy bone and healthy remaining teeth. Implants are the next best thing to healthy, natural teeth. Dental implants may possibly last your lifetime when properly cared for. A dental implant restores a lost tooth so that it looks, feels, fits and functions like a natural tooth. This long-term solution allows you to smile proudly.
