Etobicoke Wants To Know: What Are Dental Implants?

, , , ,

October 27, 2017

The purpose of our blog is to provide in-depth, important information about dental health and the procedures we perform here at Metro Dental Etobicoke. One of the many procedures we perform here is the dental implant procedure. Today, we’re going to take a closer look at dental implants and answer Etobicoke’s most frequently asked questions on this restoration.

How do dental implants work?

Dental implants etobicoke consist of metal posts or frames surgically placed into the jawbone beneath the gums and are used by dental professionals to mount dentures or dental bridges. This fusion provide a more stable support for replacement teeth.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Because of the increased stability and support dental implants provide, patients are less likely to experience shifting or slipping in their dental bridges or dentures. In addition, dental implants give replacement teeth a more natural feel to the patient.

Who can get implants?

Anyone with healthy gums and plenty of bone to hold the implant are qualified to get dental implants. However people who are smokers or have uncontrolled conditions such as diabetes or heart disease, as well as those that have had radiation in their oral or extraoral areas will need further evaluation by our dentists before getting approved. Those who choose to receive dental implants must be committed to practicing healthy oral hygiene habits and undergoing regular checkups at our offices in Etobicoke.

We at Metro Dental Etobicoke are committed to giving you the best and healthiest smile of your life. For more information on dental implants and other restoration procedures, visit us to schedule a consultation and exam.

West Metro Dental was as pleasant an experience as a Dental visit can be. The office was clean and in a very accessible location. My one complaint is that I requested my x-rays be sent to an oral surgeon and they haven't responded to my request yet. Other than that the office has friendly professionals and is a good atmosphere!

Most amazing team! Very professional and helpful with anything to do with your teeth. I absolutely love and appreciate my Hygienist Kim! She's so sweet and always makes sure my teeth are clean and sparkling white! Best team of dental professionals in the GTA hands down!

Been a patient for 5 years. Dr Walia and his staff are incredible. Everyone greets me by name. Never wait more than 20 minutes for an appointment. The true definition of superior customer service and this is from a guy who worked in the customer service industry for many years. I've moved 3 times since being a patient and continue to go to west metro despite there being dentists closer to where I live. I always feel welcome.
