Dental implants are synthetic titanium roots that can replace missing teeth.An
implant can be completed over a treatment course of 4 to 12 months.Dental
implants retain alveolar ridge height and prevent rapid bone resorption after tooth extraction.Dr, Afshar absolutely refuse single stage implants.When you have a non-salvageable tooth and intent on getting an Implant,please contact our office before tooth extraction. There are procedures than can be rendered right after tooth extraction in order to prevent significant bone resorption later.

Dental Implants offer a
permanent and comfortable solution for replacing
loose, uncomfortable dentures and single or multiple
missing teeth. Initially an artificial tooth
root called The Implant is inserted into the jaw.
This Implant is a tiny metal post made of surgical
grade titanium which fuses to the bone.
Once the titanium post/implant is fully integrated
to the bone an artificial tooth/ porcelain crown is
attached to the implant. Implants can be used to
support a single crown for replacing a single
missing tooth. They can also be used to support a
bridge or a denture when there are multiple missing
teeth. Care is taken to match any artificial teeth
to the colour and shape of the existing teeth.

Implants are totally secure and stable as they are
anchored into the jaw. Unlike conventional bridges
which involve tooth preparation, dental implants are
not supported by adjacent teeth; there is, therefore,
no risk of damaging or affecting the structure of
existing teeth. Dental Implants require no special
maintenance apart from the usual oral hygiene care
of brushing and flossing, and regular Check-ups and
Hygiene visits every 6-12 months.
would dental implants be palced?
First, the implant,
which looks like a screw or cylinder, is placed into
your jaw. Over the next two to six months, the
implant and the bone are allowed to bond together to
form an anchor for your artificial tooth. During
this time, a temporary tooth replacement option can
be worn over the implant site.
Often, a second step of the procedure is necessary
to uncover the implant and attach an extension. This
small metal post, called an abutment, completes the
foundation on which your new tooth will be placed.
Your gums will be allowed to heal for a couple of
weeks following this procedure. Finally, a
replacement tooth or teeth will be fixed on the
