When teeth are damaged or need to be removed due to cavities, infections or gum disease, implants are often the best choice for you to restore both your function and your smile. Implants are a tried and tested way to replace one or more missing or damaged teeth and have been around for many years with scientific studies to support a very high success rate. In fact, The first dental implant I placed was in 1986 and that patient continues to enjoy the benefits to this day!

So what is an implant exactly? Well, put simply, dental implants are artificial roots that become an anchor to hold in a replacement tooth, bridge or denture and are comfortably placed under the gums during a minor office procedure.

Having attended many continuing education courses and awarded a Fellowship in Implantology from the International Congress of Oral Implantology, I truly believe they are the closest way we have to get the function and appearance of your own teeth back! However, everyone’s needs are different and no two cases are alike. At My Dental Home, we take pride in providing the best solutions customized to fit everyone’s needs and budgets.

So If you need to have a tooth removed, or if you have some missing teeth that you would like to replace we welcome you to schedule a consultation with us to find out if a tooth implant is the right fit for you!

FAQs Section: Markham Dental Implants

How long does the dental implant process take?

The process typically involves several stages. It may take three to eight months, depending on individual healing time and the need for additional procedures such as bone grafts. However, we also offer same-day dental implants at our Dental Implants Clinic in Markham, Ontario. This revolutionary procedure enables the installation of the tooth implant and the placement of a temporary tooth on the same day. Whether you’re seeking traditional or same-day implants, we strive to deliver the best dental implants in Markham, ON, at My Dental Home in Unionville.

Does getting dental implants hurt?

Getting dental implants typically involves a surgical procedure under local anesthesia, ensuring the process is pain-free while on the chair. After the anesthesia wears off, it’s common to experience some discomfort akin to that felt after a tooth extraction, but this can easily be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. Usually, any post-surgery discomfort subsides within a few days.

Are they permanent?

Dental implants are designed to be a long-term solution for tooth loss, but may not last a lifetime due to many factors. One of these factors is the patient’s overall oral health and hygiene. If proper care is not taken, such as brushing and flossing regularly and attending regular dental check-ups, it can lead to infection or gum disease around the implant. This can weaken the bone structure supporting the implant and cause it to fail. In general, they can last 25 years or more with proper care.

If you have more questions about the longevity of this treatment, you can schedule a consultation for your dental implants in ON. One of our experienced dentists will assess your oral health and discuss these in detail.

How do I care for my dental implants?

Caring for dental implants involves maintaining a stringent oral hygiene routine, just like caring for natural teeth. This includes regular brushing and flossing to keep the implants, surrounding gums, and natural teeth healthy. Additionally, attending regular dental checkups at our clinic will help ensure that the implants and the rest of your teeth remain in good condition.

What are the alternatives?

The main alternatives to traditional implants are dentures and bridges. Dentures can be partial or full and are removable solutions for missing teeth. Bridges, non-removable prosthetics, are attached to natural teeth to fill in a gap left by missing teeth. Denture implants are a more stable option, as they – unlike conventional dentures – are attached directly to the jawbone with implants, providing more stability and preventing slippages. We encourage you to consult with one of our dentists to determine if you are a good candidate for these procedures.

Are there any age restrictions for dental implants?

Dental implants can be suitable for almost any age, with no upper age limit, as long as the patient is in good overall health. However, it’s crucial to note that there may be restrictions regarding younger patients. The minimum recommended age is 18, but even then, we must consider that 18 could be too young for such a procedure.

This is due to the fact that at age 18, the jawbone might still be in its maturation phase, continuing to grow and change. To avoid the risk of treatment failure, it’s recommended that those aged 18 and up experiencing tooth loss have a full assessment with their dentist. This enables them to comprehensively evaluate the current state of your oral health and develop a tailored treatment plan based on your unique case.

At My Dental Home, we offer personalized treatment plans for dental implants in Markham, Ontario, that best suit the circumstances of each patient.
