What is dental implant?
A dental implant is an artificial root in a form of titanium screw. In case of missing teeth, the implant is screwed in to the bone. Once bone heals around the implant and get solid, it can support a white colour crown very similar to natural tooth. The feeling and look of dental implant is very similar to natural tooth.You can eat and drink almost like you had your natural tooth/teeth and smile with confidence.

Who can get dental implant?
Any one over the age of 18 with good health and enough jaw bone can get dental implant. The average success rate for dental implant is over 90%. People with gum disease or ones who smoke heavily can be in higher risk for dental implant failure. People with bone disease like osteoporosis or some systemic problems such as uncontrolled diabetes make a person not eligible to get dental implant. At Vancouver Dentist, we offer a free first appointment dental implant assessment to inform you whether you are a candidate for dental implant. In some cases if there is no enough bone to hold the implant, a bone graft can be placed prior to the implant procedure to create a good base for dental implant.
How many missing teeth can be replaced by dental implants?
In general, like a natural tooth, one implant support on crown which means for any single missing tooth, one implant can be placed. For cases that multiple teeth are side by side missing, an implant bridge done. In this case 2 implants can support 3 o 4 teeth and as a result this reduced the cost of dental implant procedure for multiple teeth. For people with no existing on one arch, the all in 4 system is a great alternative to traditional dentures. A traditional denture is just held in the mouth loosely with relatively low suction force. To create a stable denture with perfect retention, 4 implants places in the jaw and denture will be screwed to implants. This results in having a solid denture with the aid of only 4 implants.
