Dental implants are a dental procedure that provides long-lasting restoration for patients. Whether your teeth have been lost because of an injury or removed because of severe tooth decay, implants can complete your smile. This procedure can replace a single tooth or multiple missing teeth, and is often used as an alternative to dentures.
In order to create a durable restoration, Dr. Leo Man first places an implant post into the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth or teeth. The post is made of a strong, biocompatible material that will eventually bond with the bone’s tissue. Once the post is placed, the site is allowed to heal before moving on to the next step.
After the site has healed appropriately, Wow Dental will arrange a follow-up appointment. During this visit, our dentist will finish the implant procedure with a restoration. During this final step, our dentist will anchor a dental prosthetic (such as a dental crown or bridge) to the surgical post. This restoration will be fitted to your unique smile so it can look and feel natural and comfortable.
