Replace missing teeth with dental implants

Sometimes, you may lose a tooth and wonder why you should bother replacing it. After all, the gap left isn’t conspicuous while smiling, plus there are other teeth left to do the chewing. In these challenging economic times, why not leave it and save the dough?

Dental Implant Procedure in Scarborough Area

On the contrary, there are many reasons why you should replace your missing teeth. When your tooth is left untreated, it impedes your oral hygiene, encourages bone resorption, and causes the nearby teeth to shift towards the space.

Dental implants procedure

While there are many options to replace your teeth, dental implants from Esquire Dental Centres in Scarborough, Ontario, remain the “gold standard” of filling up that bothersome gap. But what should I expect from the procedure? Is the process painful? Here is what to expect from dental implant treatment.


The first process is an initial evaluation of your mouth to determine if you have sufficient jawbone to support a tooth implant. While years back, patients with insufficient jawbone were locked out of dental implants, today, bone grafting has enabled those with inadequate jawbones to benefit from the procedure.

Tooth extraction

If you have a severely broken or decayed tooth, it will need to be extracted before the implant placement. You shouldn’t fret over tooth extraction because anesthesia and modern equipment have made tooth removal painless and straightforward.

Surgical insertion of the implant

The next step is to insert a biocompatible titanium screw into your jawbone. Again, this process is painless because your dentist uses anesthesia to get rid of any discomfort. After insertion, the implant post fuses with your jawbone after several months. Following fusion, your implant is firmly cemented to support a crown or bridge.

Abutment placement

Once your implant is secured in the jawbone, the next step is the placement of an abutment that supports a crown. Sometimes, the abutment can be fixed during the implant placement, but the results are the same either way.

Installing a crown

After your gums are healed, it’s time to wrap up the treatment by placing a crown, bridges, or implant-supported dentures. You can now walk away with a tooth replacement that closely mimics your natural teeth.
