Dental Implants in Forest Lake

dentis holding model of implantsWhether you’re missing teeth, have cracked or worn teeth, or are considering dental implants for another reason, we’re proud to work with a team of expert Periodontists to bring patients the quality and effective results they deserve.

Dental implants are generally a solution for patients dealing with:

  • One or more missing teeth
  • Cracked, chipped or worn teeth
  • Individuals who don’t want dentures

The Implant Process

First, we’ll need to make sure you’re a candidate for dental implants, which involves taking a scan of your mouth and bone structure. Implants require enough bone to fuse to the implant to hold it securely in place. If you aren’t a candidate, don’t worry–we have a number of other options that may be perfect for you and allow you to achieve the smile of your dreams.

If you are a candidate for implants, the next step is a placement appointment with our recommended Periodontist, who has the highest level of training for implants. They’ll place the implant in your mouth along with a temporary tooth and 12 weeks later (after you’ve healed), you’ll return for final placement of your permanent tooth that will look, feel and function just as a natural tooth.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I don’t have enough bone material in my jaw?

Not having enough bone to hold the implant in your jaw doesn’t mean that you can’t get a dental implant. It may, however, be necessary to have a bone graft procedure before you can move forward with the process of getting a dental implant.

How long will my implants last?

With proper care, implants can last much longer than a decade. You’ll need to maintain proper oral health habits and be sure to visit us for your six-monthly appointments.

Will my dental implant be noticeable?

No. We colour-match the restoration on top of your implant, whether you have a dental crown, dental bridge or denture attached to it. It will fit seamlessly in with your existing teeth.
