Implants at Asante Dental Centre
As dentists in New Westminster, BC, we have years of experience working with implants. Dental implants offer a host of useful benefits over bridges or partial dentures:
Implants do not require preparation or damage to adjacent teeth. For a traditional bridge, adjacent teeth need to be prepared to anchor the bridge. In case of an implant, these adjacent teeth remain untouched.
Implants help to maintain bone. After a tooth is extracted, bone in the area starts to progressive shrink. This shrinkage continues even if a fixed bridge is placed in the area. Implants on the other hand, help to maintain the bone by stimulating it when you chew on the tooth.
Implants can help secure loose dentures.
Even though implants are more costly compared to other treatment options, they offer excellent long-term value. When implants get integrated or firmly embedded in the jawbone, they give you the confidence to eat, drink, smile, and chew without worrying. The titanium posts cannot get decayed, and implants can last even for a lifetime with proper care.
Procedure for Dental Implants
Our dentists will first evaluate your eligibility for implants with an exam and x-ray including a cone beam CT scan. Some patients may require additional surgery like a bone graft to increase bone volume before receiving implants. Dental implant treatment is complex and in some cases, your treatment will require collaboration with our specialist colleagues. Dental implants in New Westminster, BC are associated with a high degree of success, and patients enjoy their lasting benefits for several years.
