Living with missing teeth can be uncomfortable, particularly if it makes you struggle with biting, chewing, or speaking. Over time, your remaining teeth can shift in an attempt to fill the space — altering your appearance. If you’re missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all of your teeth, dental implants are a secure, comfortable solution you can trust.

A dental implant is essentially a titanium screw that functions like a natural tooth root — securing a tooth, and making sure your teeth remain in their proper positions.
A dental implant is the closest you can get to a natural tooth. Dental implants continue to remain a long-lasting solution that allows you to speak, eat, and smile with confidence. If you need more information about Dental Implants in Downtown Ottawa, contact us today.
Dental Implants help you look and feel younger, because they prevent bone loss that would normally occur with the loss of your teeth. Your facial structures are preserved in their natural state by preventing the bone loss that would typically follow tooth loss. If your jawbone doesn’t resorb away and remains intact, you have a lower likelihood of aging prematurely and developing wrinkles.
Replacement teeth that more closely resemble natural teeth in appearance, feel, and functionality improve one’s overall quality of life. You will appear more attractive and younger, which will give you more confidence to smile, laugh, and engage in conversation with others.
You can live longer, because you’ll get to eat better and prevent malnutrition or stomach problems! You can now include fresh vegetables, corn, fruit, and meats to your menu. You can eat the meals you choose. Additionally, since you can chew food more effectively, your digestion will be much better!

The actual surgery is often done in several stages to allow the jabone to heal completely around the implant before the finishing work is done. In some cases, the jawbone must be grafted.
The next step is to place the tooth root implant into the bone socket of the missing tooth. The jawbone will heal around the root implant, keeping it securely within your jaw. This healing process can take between 6 and 12 weeks, depending on the individual.
After you heal, the next step will be to place an abutment – which is a small connector post – to the implant. The new tooth, or crown, which is made based off of impressions of your teeth, is then installed onto the abutment. At this point, your implant will look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth.
