Doctor Wisdom takes the utmost care in patients that require tooth implants. All of our dentists are highly seasoned experts in dental care, including implantology procedures in Montreal.
The dental implant is an artificial titanium root placed in the bone to replace a missing tooth. This root will support a crown. Success is based on an advanced case study and a rigorous surgical method.
Tooth Implant Procedure
Two techniques are offered, depending on the case: the first is to open a flap & the gum and place the implant into the bone, the other is flapless. A healing abutment is then placed allowing the gum to heal around the root. Then, the implant goes through a process called osseointegration during which it attaches the bone. A temporary tooth (temporary prosthesis) may be used during this period.
It often is a simple and non-traumatic intervention that is done under local anesthesia. Our dental center also offers conscious nitrous oxide sedation for a more enjoyable experience.
After osseointegration, an impression is taken to allow the dental laboratory to make a custom crown or bridge. These artificial teeth will be screwed or cemented (glued) directly onto the implant or the pivot. Impressions are taken with a 3D scanner called iTero, an innovative technology in the dental world.
