Dental Implants in Guelph

There can be several reasons why you may need this type of treatment.

Whether you are looking for an alternative to dentures, have suffered an injury, or need to replace a specific tooth, implants have many advantages to consider.

For treatments here in Guelph, we recommend you call our friendly team and set up a free consultation. Here at Speedvale Dental Centre, Drs. Fox and Cool will meet with you, and provide all the important information you need.

Advantages To Consider

If you currently have dentures, and are not comfortable with them, then you might find that dental implants can be a better choice.

Dentures are relatively easy to fit, but some people find them fussy to clean, and difficult to eat and speak with. If you struggle to eat hard or sticky foods with dentures, or you find that you have a lisp when you speak, setting up a free consultation with us is highly recommended.

Implants involve having a root surgically implanted into the bone of your jaw, then a tooth screwed onto the top. This is more secure and stronger than a denture or a bridge, and it stays in the mouth permanently – although sometimes the upper part might be removed for cleaning.

These usually look a lot more realistic than dentures, and feel more realistic too. They fit the gums almost perfectly, and they can be cleaned easily.

Who Can Get Implants?

Almost anyone can receive implants, but there are a few people for whom they may not be suitable. If you are interested in learning more, we encourage you to set up a consultation with us. We will conduct an exam to decide whether this treatment can be a success for you.

The implantation process includes drilling a hole in the jaw, and inserting the metal base. You will then need to wait several weeks for the implant to heal so that it is secure and stable. At this point you will be fitted for the replacement tooth. A custom tooth is made that fits your jaw perfectly, giving you an even bite.

If you need multiple new teeth, they may be bridged across a couple of roots, or fitted individually, depending upon the location of the teeth and the size of your jawbone.

Once all of this is done, we will fit the replacement tooth for you and show you how to take care of it.
