Dental Implant Restorations
Dr. Derek Clease has been placing dental implants in Vancouver for almost two decades, and considers them an excellent tooth replacement option for patients looking for a permanent solution to their missing teeth.
Dental implant restorations are performed by attaching artificial teeth to titanium root implants, which are anchored in the bone below the gum line.
After the titanium root has been surgically placed in the jawbone, the bone and gum grow around the implant, holding it firmly in place. The artificial tooth or teeth can then be attached to the implant.
The end result is a strong, secure tooth that is virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth, and that feels and functions much the same as well. Dental implants can be used to secure individual teeth, bridges or full dentures.
The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth are permanently fixed, and appear natural.
Implants can also help preserve facial structure, because they prevent the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.
Dental implants are changing the way people live! With them, many are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.
