Dental Implant Services

dental implants London OntarioDental implants are replacements for natural teeth. When tooth loss happens due to gum disease or decay, Dr. Joseph is able to replace them in many ways. One of those ways is to use Dental implants. Some times patients visit our office specifically asking for dental implants to replace a missing tooth. There is a perception that dental implants are complicated procedures with questionable outcomes. But when an experienced Dentist or surgeon, such as Dr. Joseph performs the procedure, Implants are generally routine procedures with very predictable outcomes. The major advantages to dental implants is that they avoid the unnecessary drilling of adjacent teeth and also help with bone preservation (bone which will otherwise be lost when the natural tooth is lost).


Dental Implant Services: Your Tooth Replacement Solution

Dental implants act as replacement tooth roots to permanently fill gaps left by missing teeth. A small titanium screw is surgically embedded into the jawbone, where it fuses securely in place through osseointegration. This provides a stable foundation to hold a customized crown, bridge, or full arch of false teeth. With their realistic look and feel, dental implants are the closest solution to healthy natural teeth.

At London Dental House, Dr. Joseph crafts customized treatment plans and performs implant placement and restorations. He will determine if you are a candidate through digital imaging, testing, and assessment of your teeth, gums, and jawbone density. If bone grafting is required prior to placement, this can widen your options for supporting solid, lasting implants.


The Many Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer significant functional and aesthetic advantages over traditional tooth replacements like bridges, partials, and dentures:

  • Prevent bone loss and changes to facial structure
  • Do not decay like natural tooth roots
  • Restore full chewing and biting function
  • Maintain the health of neighbouring teeth
  • Eliminate the need for removable prosthetics
  • Stay firmly fixed in place when eating and speaking
  • Preserve natural spacing between teeth
  • Look and feel just like your real teeth


With their durability, performance, and realistic appearance, dental implants are the premier solution for restoring your smile.

Parts of a Dental Implant

Dental implants are composed of a metal screw (placed into bone and made of titanium), a connector or abutment that sits on the implant and projects into the mouth and can be seen by the patient and finally a crown that is screwed onto the connector. The crown will be fashioned to look very natural and will be hard to distinguish from natural teeth, even in the front of the mouth.

Minimally Invasive Dental Implant Surgery

The dental implant placement procedure is performed using advanced techniques to ensure comfort and optimal results. Precise 3D imaging scans are taken prior to surgery to guide careful positioning of the implants. During the procedure, local anesthesia is administered to keep you comfortable at all times. A small, minimally invasive incision is made into the gums, just large enough to expose the underlying jawbone for implant access. Surgical guides are then used to direct the perfect angle and depth for placement of the titanium implant into the jawbone, secured in place like a screw. Once positioned properly, the gums are sutured closed over the top of the implant site.

With Dr. Joseph’s extensive surgical training and experience placing hundreds of dental implants, the procedure is smooth and precisely controlled from start to finish. His meticulous technique makes implant surgery a quick, minimally invasive process allowing you to heal rapidly.


Recovering After Your Implant Surgery

In the final stage of treatment, your custom implant restorations are meticulously designed and crafted to seamlessly replace your missing teeth. Once the implant is fully integrated with the bone through osseointegration, precision impressions are taken of your mouth. Using advanced CAD/CAM digital technology, the crowns and bridges are then designed in minute detail based on the impressions. Skilled technicians will fabricate beautiful, biocompatible crowns and bridges from biocompatible materials to exact specifications.

The custom implant restoration is then securely attached to your implants for a natural, cohesive fit. Your new crowns and bridges will blend in flawlessly, revitalizing your smile with a complete set of replacement teeth. With the proper care, your implant restorations have the longevity to provide functional beauty to your smile for decades, thanks to their secure integration and natural aesthetics. You can comfortably eat, smile, laugh, and speak with confidence again.
