Dental Implants in Sainte-Catherine

Tooth loss is a problem affecting millions of Canadians. Although the risk increases with age, adult teeth can be lost at any time, with problems like gum disease increasing the risk. Dental implants in Sainte-Catherine can effectively replace lost teeth whether considering a single unit or entire rows at the top and bottom of the jaw.

At Clinique Dentaire PG, we offer everything from single front tooth implants to full mouth reconstruction with All on 4 or All on 6 dentures.

Who Needs Dental Implants in Sainte-Catherine?

Dr. Ghatas or Dr. Psarra may recommend treatment with dental implants in Sainte Catherine if…

  • You have lost one or more teeth.
  • You are in good health and don’t have an underlying condition that could prevent bone healing.
  • You don’t want traditional dentures.
  • You have healthy gums with no sign of periodontal disease.
  • You want to be able to speak naturally and enjoy the food and drinks that you love.

Dental implants in Sainte-Catherine are an alternative treatment to traditional dentures and bridges but they function differently. Dental implants are permanent and reliable. Titanium posts are embedded into the jaw, and function just like natural roots. Abutments and crowns are then attached to the implants.

Dental implants integrate with the bone in your jaw, ensuring stability and preventing the loss of bone material.

What is the Process Like for Dental Implants?

Like all treatments, having dental implants in Sainte-Catherine begins with a consultation. In your initial visit to Clinique Dentaire PG, we will review your medical history, evaluate the extent of tooth loss or damage, and develop a treatment plan. If other solutions are more viable, we can recommend these instead.

Treatment with dental implants in Sainte-Catherine is performed in several stages:

  • The damaged tooth or teeth will be removed. Grafting or socket preservation may be necessary before implants are placed.
  • Implants are placed in the jaw and prepared for healing. Healing time can take between four and six months in most cases. This ensures the implant fuses with the bone through a process of osseointegration.
  • A healing abutment (cap for the implant) will be placed to protect the implant and help prevent soft tissue from covering the implant.
  • When the implant is fully healed, an artificial tooth will be attached to the implant with an abutment.

Dental implants in Sainte-Catherine look and feel natural. You can care for them like natural teeth with flossing and brushing. Regular dental visits will be scheduled to maintain your dental implants in Sainte-Catherine.
