Dental Implants

Dental implants are a great opportunity to replace teeth that have been lost—or worse, never existed! They can get you back your long-lost pearly whites without needing complicated bridgework or less up-to-date dental care.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants, which are also referred to as tooth implants, is one of the best options for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants are an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth because of gum disease, an injury, an accident, or for any other reason.

Unlike removable dentures that rest on the gum line or fixed bridges that use adjacent teeth as anchors, a dental implant is a long-term replacement that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth. Dental implants are composed of a titanium metal screw that overtime fuses with the jawbone, providing a solid anchor for replacement teeth. Dental implants do not require extra daily maintenance, never slip, and do not make embarrassing clicking sounds.

To find out if dental implants are a good tooth replacement option for you, contact our Richmond BC dental office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kaltio. In your initial consultation, we’ll discuss with you the pros and cons of dental implants and help you decide if dental implants are right for you.

What is a Dental Implant Procedure Like?

Before the procedure, our Richmond BC dentist will carefully plan and prepare you for the dental implant procedure. During the procedure, the bone where the implant will be placed will be drilled carefully and then the titanium metal implant will be inserted into the hole. After the procedure, the healing process generally lasts about 2-6 months.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

Because each patient has a unique situation, the low-cost of dental implants varies. To get an accurate estimate for dental implants, contact us today and schedule a consultation with Dr. Kaltio.
