Dental implants in Burlington fill spaces left by missing teeth
When you lose a tooth to trauma, extraction, or disease, it affects more than the appearance of your smile. The gap allows other teeth to shift out of position. These crooked teeth create hiding places for bacterial plaque to thrive, causing tooth decay and gum disease. The absence of a tooth root also contributes to loss of facial bone. Dental implants

What is a dental implant?
An implant is a small cylinder made of biocompatible titanium. It is placed into the jawbone acting as an artificial tooth root. Over several months, bone fuses with the implant, creating a solid foundation for a crown. The restored tooth looks completely natural, functions just like your own teeth, and feels normal in the mouth. With good oral care, a dental implant can be a lifetime restoration.
Planning and placement of dental implants requires precision. Our general dentists are experienced in the procedure. At Mount Royal Dental, you have the added assurance of an oral surgeon with specialized instruments for complex cases, such as those that require bone grafting. Our dentists use three-dimensional cone beam technology (CBCT), implant guides, and dental implant stents for predictable outcomes.
In addition to restoring a single missing tooth, multiple teeth or a full arch can be replaced with dental implants. The All-on-4 system holds a denture securely on four implants. Mini-dental implants have a smaller diameter and are specially designed to be “loaded” immediately. You can wear your denture the same day the implants are placed, so you don’t have to go a day without teeth.
