Dental Implants


In the modern age, we have established that maintaining one’s oral hygiene is imperative. There are practices, such as regular brushing and flossing, that we have consciously integrated into our lives. These routine practices have ensured that the health risks that arise from irregular maintenance of our oral hygiene don’t have a widespread impact on our overall health. That being said, injuries, infections and diseases are events we can’t necessarily prepare for. Those who have lost their a tooth or teeth can rely on our dental implants to find the long-term fix they need.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is essentially a synthetic root of a tooth that is attached to the jawbone with the help of a surgical procedure.   The synthetic “root” typically consists of titanium, which is also the preferred material of choice for other replacement surgeries. The reason why titanium is considered the best option is that the material is known to suitably merge with the human bone and prevent further complications.

What is the Process?

After the titanium post is surgically placed into your jawbone by a specialist,  our dentists at Rideau Dental on 4th can then restore your implant with the tooth component portion.  This procedure will take two visits with the first appointment consisting of taking impressions, selecting a shade to match your adjacent teeth and sending it to the dental lab for fabrication of your tooth.  The following appointment will be placing the restoration and restoring your smile!
