Then set up a consultation at our Westbank dental office, where our compassionate Westside Dental team will be happy to sit with you, answer your questions, and help put together a plan for dental implants that best suits your needs and goals.
What are Dental Implants?
When you have a missing tooth, a dental implant with a crown is an effective option for replacing the tooth. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for patients who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or for other reasons. The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Contact us to set up a consultation at our Westbank office and find out if you are eligible for a dental implant.
Implant Bridge Procedure
When several neighbouring teeth are missing, an implant-supported bridge is an effective form of treatment to replace the teeth. This process involves multiple phases. This means some investment in time and in the healing process. At Westside Dental we ensure process will pay off, as implant-supported bridges are superior to removable-partials or multiple, tooth-supported fixed bridges. Implants prevent or stop bone deterioration, are more comfortable, maintain better facial structure, preserve adjacent natural teeth, and restore biting and chewing capacity.
Alternatives for Tooth Implants
Essentially, the alternatives for implants fall into two categories: fully edentulous (having no teeth) and partially edentulous (missing many teeth). If you’re missing a full arch of teeth, you may have multiple options available, such as modifying your current denture or getting a new one made. If you’re missing one or more teeth, your dentistry options include a partial denture, a bridge, or an implant-supported bridge. If you are in Westbank or West Kelowna come to our office where our professionals will be happy to sit with you and discuss your options.
