Dental Implant Services in Kamloops

A dental implant is recommended when a patient might have missing teeth. However, it’s important to keep it mind that it’s only suitable when the patient has healthy gums and a healthy jawbone. If you have missing teeth and you want to restore your chewing ability as well as improve your facial appearance, our dentists can help! At Aberdeen Dental Arts, we provide you with services for dental implants in Kamloops, BC. After thorough oral health checkups, our dentists can determine if a dental implant is the right option for you. 

The Implant Process


Restoring a tooth using an implant is a process that requires several steps. 

  1. Implant: The implant, which is made of titanium, is fused to your upper or lower jawbone, depending on which tooth is being replaced. This is an invasive procedure that requires weeks to months of recovery time.
  2. Abutment: Once the implant has healed, an abutment is attached to the implant with a screw. The abutment is a post that can be made of several materials, including titanium and porcelain. It is what connects your implant to the restoration.
  3. Restoration: The part that looks like a tooth is called a restoration. It can be a crown, bridge or removable appliance made of various materials. If a crown is used, it is screwed or cemented onto the abutment. Bridges and other restorations generally snap into position on the abutment rather than screwing in, making them removable options. Bridges are a permanent option and therefore not removeable.


Because dental implants are fused to your jawbone, your restoration won’t slip, make noise or cause bone damage the way other restorative options can. While there are risks involved with any surgery, the success rate of dental implants in Kamloops is very high and very predictable, making them an excellent option for replacing your missing dentition.

Reasons to Get Dental Implants in Kamloops

It’s important to consider all of your options when seeking ways to replace missing teeth. Generally, implants are a good restorative dental option if you: 

 

  • Are missing one or more teeth
  • Have a full-grown jaw with adequate bone
  • Are an overall healthy person
  • Have healthy oral tissues
  • Are unwilling or unable to wear dentures
  • Want to improve your speech
  • Are willing to commit long-term to the process

 

Before getting dental implants in Kamloops, any underlying oral health issues you have must be managed. Implants are not recommended for smokers, those with debilitating diseases that prevent healing or those who are pregnant. Be sure to consult with your dentist if you’re interested in getting dental implants.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Why am I losing my teeth?

There can be many causes such as:

• Progressed tooth decay

• Inflammation of the tooth’s supporting tissue

• Systemic disease

Is there a difference between an implant and a bridge?

Both implant and bridges are permanent and non-removable. A bridge may be used to link the gap created by one or more missing teeth. An implant, on the other hand, provides a strong foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth which are made to match the natural teeth. 

What is the cost of an implant treatment?

The cost of the implant varies according to the complexity of your case. You can contact us to get an estimate prior to your treatment.

Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth. They are often considered sturdier and more secure than other methods of replacing teeth, and they are a permanent option.
