DENTAL IMPLANTS
Restoring Naturally, beautiful confident, smiles.

img If you have experienced tooth loss, you are not alone. According to the American and Canadian Dental Associations, more than 22 million people in the North America are missing all of their natural teeth, and more than 100 million are missing from 11 to 15 teeth. In 1997, dental professionals performed more then 500,000 dental implant procedures worldwide.

Dental implants offer a permanent solution to missing teeth. For over 30 years, dental implants have brought naturally beautiful, confident smiles to patients. With implants, chewing and speech are restored or improved and a permanent natural appearance is achieved. Whether you are missing one or all of your teeth, implants allow you to enjoy your favourite foods and have the confidence you desire for an active professional and social life.

A dental implant is a small titanium screw or cylinder, which is surgically placed in the upper or lower jawbone. The implant replaces the root of the missing tooth, providing an anchor for your new tooth/teeth. Many patients choose dental implants over other procedures, because the result is a natural appearance, which is permanent.

Recent innovations in implant technology have greatly improved implant procedures. Some implants are treated with a patented surface to enhance healing in less time and post operative pain after placement is minimal to none. Most Implants have an overall success rate of 9598% and have proven to reduce treatment time to as little as two months.

The Permanent Solution Dental implants offer solutions for all types of tooth replacement.

img Single Tooth and Multiple Tooth Replacements: Because dental implants replace the tooth lost and serve as an anchor, your new tooth/teeth are secured directly on the implant. This treatment allows teeth to be restored naturally, without harming or involving your surrounding teeth. Small metal posts are connected to the implant, allowing the replacement tooth to be permanently secured with dental cement or a small screw.

Implant Supported Dentures: Dental implants can also be placed to permanently anchor and support partial or full dentures, eliminating the need for dental adhesives. Enjoy having the confidence to eat the foods you previously avoided. Dentures can be supported with either a bar/clip or ball/socket attachment for removal, allowing for regular cleaning.

Treatment Ease

Your dentist, Dr. Syed, will perform a complete examination involving radiographs to determine if implants are right for you. Once your specific needs are assessed, your dentist will schedule an appointment for you to come in for a consultation. Together, you will discuss your options and will decide which treatment plan is best for you. Depending on your needs, your treatment may be complete in three steps.

Step 1: Dr. Syed places the implant(s) into your jawbone. The implant replaces the natural tooth root and provides structural support.

Step 2: Dr. Syed will make models of your mouth. The models will be sent to the laboratory to create your replacement tooth (teeth).

Step 3: Dr. Syed will attach your replacement tooth (teeth). The result is the look and feel of natural teeth. Chewing and speech is restored or improved, while bone structure is preserved. In most cases, post operative pain after placement is minimal to none.
