Dental Implants in New Westminster
When it comes to restoring missing or removed teeth, dental implants are quickly becoming one of the most popular options. Their permanence, look, feel, and function all make dental implants the most similar to a natural tooth. Although the process is longer than other restorative options, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a worthwhile investment in your long-term oral health.
How Dental Implants Work
In dental implants, a titanium metal post is surgically implanted directly into the gums to mimic the tooth roots. As the implant heals, it bonds with the bone in the jaw, becoming firmly attached. Once healed, a customized pontic (false tooth) is attached to the top of the post, creating a perfect fit in your mouth.

Dental implants can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all of your teeth. Your dentist will discuss your long-term dental care plan with you and provide you with all of the information you need to make a decision about dental implants.
