Dental Implants

ottawa dental implants

Dental implants are designed to permanently and securely replace missing teeth. Whether you are missing individual teeth or want to secure a full set of dentures, implant dentistry may be an excellent option.

How it works

The dental implant is placed below the gum line and becomes permanently fused to the bone. An advantage to an implant is that the missing tooth can be replaced without affecting the adjacent teeth.

Who is a candidate for dental implants?

Anyone in reasonable health who wants to replace missing teeth can be a candidate for dental implants. You must have enough bone in the area of the missing teeth to provide for the anchorage of the implants. If a patient does not have enough bone to support a dental implant, bone grafts can be placed.

Today, we use implants to replace small bridges, removable partial dentures, and missing single teeth.

What is the success rate of dental implants?

The success rate depends greatly on where the implants are placed. The most successful implants are those placed in the front portion of the lower jaw—these have a 98-100% success rate. In other areas of the mouth, success rates drop slightly. The success of implants in the front part of the upper jaw is 90-95%. And the success of implants in the back part of the upper and lower jaw is 85-95%.

Why have dental implants become so popular?

Dentures and removable bridges are loose and unstable. Implants provide patients with dental replacements that are both reliable and aesthetic.
