Long gone are the days when ill-fitting dentures caused teeth to slide around in the mouth comically. Today we have advanced solutions to migrating dentures, and one of the best is dentures on implants.
We have 2 locations for your convenience.
There are many alternatives for missing teeth; some are bridges, partials, complete dentures, or a dental implant procedure. At Kamloops Denture and Implant Centre, we perform quality dental implant procedures, so our patients can leave with that dreamy smile they’ve always wanted. Implants are used to replace missing roots and support artificial replacement teeth, making them a popular choice for their comfort and natural look. They’re made of titanium metal and they’re inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of the natural tooth. A fake replacement tooth is attached to the implant, while the implant acts as an anchor to hold the tooth. A dentist will examine your head, jaw and teeth to see if dental implants are right for your oral health. The general procedure consists of a few particular stages:
First stage: You would have a dental implant placed into your jawbone beneath the gum tissue. The implant will bond with the bone and attach to the gum. This can take several months for the gum tissue to heal.
Second stage: An abutment will be attached to the implant— an abutment is a post that connects the fake tooth to the implant.
Third stage: The fake tooth is then created so it can be properly fitted and attached onto the abutment. This can take several appointments to complete.
Sometimes when multiple teeth are being replaced, a fixed bridge is attached to your dental implants.
Overall, a dental implant procedure can benefit many people who wish to fix and replace their teeth. This is a one-time cost procedure, leaving you with the smile of your dreams.
This implant option will keep your jawbone from eroding and preserve your facial structure. With patient-removable overdentures, implants are splinted for extra strength and to evenly distribute biting loads across teeth. The advantage to these dentures is they won’t tip or move in your mouth. And your bone tissue will receive the stimulation it needs to remain intact.
