What is a dental implant or dental bridge?
A dental implant is a tiny support device that replaces the root of a missing tooth. Made from a bio-compatible material, this implant or dental bridge is positioned into the jawline ensuring the bone fuses with the implant holding it securely in place. This highly technical procedure requires a lot of skill and precision which our team of qualified experts possess. For further enquires, or to find out more information, do not hesitate to contact Dental bridges Surgery in Mississauga.
Reasons to get dental implants in Mississauga:
- They can help prevent jawbone decaying which ultimately leads to tooth loss.
- They last a lifetime
- They allow patients to eat, speak and smile comfortably without any discomfort.
- Dental bridges are the perfect solution for people with failing teeth, or for people with troublesome dentures.
Determining candidates for dental implants:
Candidates who are in good health with adequate bone density and have missing teeth are ideal for dental implants. If you suffer from any health conditions that put you at risk, such as heart disease, your consideration for dental implants may be compromised. Other factors in determining whether a patient can be considered a potential candidate include:
- Smoking status.
- Gum disease.
- The extent of the patient’s tooth decay.
- Seeing if the patient has a habit of teeth grinding.

Dental implant procedure:
Here at Lakeshore Dentistry, we follow five main actions for a basic implant:
- After the patient has been under anaesthesia, the dentist will make a deep incision along the ridge of the gum, directly above the jawbone to expose the bone underneath the tissue. The location of the incision is imperative as it allows the tissue in the gum to cover the implant completely.
- This is where our highly skilled and experienced dentist will use a high-speed drill to place an initial hole in the bone. Any mistake at this stage can lead to the bone getting damaged, which in turn could damage some tissue as well.
- After the initial hole has been made, the dentist will drill again with a much slower speed drill drilling large bits. The drilling is stopped when the excavation has reached the right size for the implant. The dentist will keep the temperature low during this drilling process to avoid cell and nerve damage.
- With the help of a pressure-sensitive wrench, the implant is screwed into the cavity. This is done to prevent the screw from over-tightening or causing any undue stress to the surrounding bone and tissue area.
- After the implant has been screwed into the bone, the tissue which was split is now bought back together in a manner that either can be completely covered by the tissue, or it allows for just the tip of the implant to show.
The steps above would take place after the dentist has taken moulds from the patient’s bite pattern of her tooth/teeth or denture. The patient would also be under general anaesthesia.
