Denture Over Implants in Ottawa, Ontario

Dental implants are artificial teeth that are fitted directly into the jawbone using titanium anchors. The replacement teeth are made using porcelain to match the natural colour of your teeth. Implants can secure either one tooth or several teeth and act as an anchor for both upper or lower dentures.

The modern technique of implantology was pioneered by Swedish orthodontist Dr P.I. Branemark. He discovered that bone can bond with titanium. This method is called osseointegration. After surgery, the bone and gum is meant to grow around these fitted implants. 

Implants can be surgically placed into the jawbone, given that the patients are in reasonable health. Your denturist in Ottawa will first determine whether or not you are a candidate for implants by thoroughly assessing your oral health. If they should find that you are not eligible, there are alternatives to encourage bone growth in the jaw. This is something to discuss with your Ottawa denturist at Sean Denture & Implant Center.

Implants may be suitable for patients who:

• Are dissatisfied with loose dentures, either because of wear or a poor fit
• Would like to improve their comfort and ability while chewing when missing teeth
• Would like an oral appliance to fill a gap in their teeth

Approximately 21% of all Canadians are missing either all or some of their teeth. As such, this is a very common condition and we are here to help. Our Ottawa denturist team will be able to advise you of the most suitable implant solution and alleviate any concerns or misconceptions you might have about dental implants. 

Dental implants are typically performed under local anaesthesia. The Ottawa denturist will fit dentures on the implants to provide stability, reduced tissue irritation and decreased bone loss in certain situations.
