Dental implants, medically known as endosseous implants, are small, titanium posts that are placed in the jaw bone to act as tooth roots for replacement teeth. Implants are ideal for individuals who are seeking permanent teeth replacement options after tooth loss. If you’re in Toronto, ON, and are looking for an oral surgeon that provides dental implants near you, feel free to contact us at Toronto East Maxillofacial Surgery.
Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons in Toronto, ON, will help ensure your dental implant placement is a positive experience. During your first appointment, our oral surgeon will evaluate you thoroughly via CT imaging and digital impressions, to determine if you’re a suitable candidate for dental implants.
Traditional dental implants require two surgeries and a healing period of several months to allow for complete fusion of the artificial tooth roots and the jaw bone. Once healing is achieved, the oral surgeon attaches connector or abutment posts and the dental prosthesis of choice (crowns, bridges, or dentures) for a complete restoration.
For patients who don’t wish to wait several months to restore their smiles, there’s the option of immediate dental implants. These are placed immediately after tooth removal.
All-On-4®️ implants, or Teeth In A Day, allow oral surgeons to restore an entire arch of teeth using four strategically positioned implants. All-On-4 implants are an ideal option for patients who have undergone significant tooth loss and wish to replace their teeth without undergoing multiple or extensive surgeries.
We undertake rigorous assessments to determine your suitability for dental implants. We rely on dental x-rays as well as CT scans and digital impressions to create three-dimensional treatment planning for optimal implant placement. Our oral surgeons will evaluate your dental health, including the state of your jawbone, to check if there’s sufficient bone mass to support dental implantation. If you have undergone bone atrophy after tooth loss, our oral and maxillofacial surgeons may recommend bone grafting to build bone density before proceeding with dental implant surgery.
Dental implant surgery can be performed under sedation. The oral surgeon will determine the best-suited form of anesthesia/sedation, depending on the complexity of the procedure and your unique needs.
Dental implants offer excellent stability and restore the function and aesthetic of your smile naturally. Implants are not movable, so they allow you to chew, smile, and talk comfortably. Implants also decrease bone atrophy as they keep the jawbone stimulated.
