What are dental implants?


Unlike fillings or crowns that are bonded to the tooth, dental implants are surgically implanted into the jawbone below the gum line. The implant acts as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth in place. 


How are dental implants done?

  • At our dental practice in North York, our dentists will always do an oral exam and consultation before performing any procedures in your mouth. 
  • During your first appointment, our dentists will place a dental implant in your jawbone beneath the gum tissue by cutting your gums open and placing the screw-like material firmly in your mouth. The gum tissue is stitched back into place. As the tissue heals, the implant will bond into the bone and attach to the gum.
  • Once healed, our dentists will attach an abutment to the implant. An abutment is the post that connects the replacement tooth to the implant. 
  • Next, an artificial tooth is created in a dental lab, where you get to choose the type of material it can be made out of: porcelain, gold, composite-resin.
