Dental Implants

 

A dental implant is simply a metal or ceramic device that replaces the root of a natural tooth. After an implant is placed into the underlying bone, artificial teeth are attached to it, enabling normal function. The whole treatment may take up to one year to complete, and treatment is carried out in two stages. The first stage is done by a specialist oral surgeon to whom we will refer you, and the second stage is completed at Macleans Dentist.

Whether an implant is right for you depends on where the implant will be placed, the kind and amount of bone available in the jaw, and the design of the tooth or teeth that will be placed on the implant. We can discuss the options with you and help you determine which is best for you.

We work with the following implant systems: Nobel Biocare and Biomet 3i

We welcome ACC Prior Approval implant cases.
