Dental Implants Vancouver
Dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth, especially if the teeth adjacent to the space would not otherwise require fillings/restorations. A dental implant involves a series of appointments. We work with an implant specialist who places a small titanium post into the bone. After it stabilizes we can place a crown on top of the post that will mimic the missing teeth. Like a bridge, a dental implant is fixed in your mouth and you do not need to worry about it coming lose or removing your new tooth/teeth to clean them.
Dental implants can also be used when multiple or all teeth are missing. Bridges and dentures can both be connected to dental implants. Each case is different. Please drop in for a consultation with our Vancouver dentist and we can discuss your specific needs.
Dental Implants are placed by the dental specialists called periodontists or oral surgeons. Having dental implants placed is a longer process which might require several visits (usually 2) of your periodontist or oral surgeon. Most of the patients describe the pain as mild and experience very little discomfort during the surgery. Local anesthesia is provided in order to reduce discomfort during the implant surgery.
If you are thinking about getting dental implants, our downtown Vancouver dentists Dr. Ken Phillips and Dr. Ryan Bernhauser will be happy to schedule a consultation with you and discuss your options.
