Dental Implants may be an option for you to replace a missing tooth if you are in good oral health. Ask Dr. Kao in Halifax for an implant consultation today.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that a dentist places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge.
Why would I want to replace a missing tooth?
Many people who are missing teeth experience difficulty chewing or speaking. It can also cause confidence issues. No matter what your reason, we will be happy to explain your options in detail.
An implant is also a more permanent option to replace your existing bridge or denture.
What is the implant procedure like?
Dr. Kao will ensure that you are in a good state of oral health. Once that is confirmed, she will refer you out to a specialist for your implant to be placed. From there you require approximately 4 months healing time with a temporary tooth before Dr. Kao will finish your new tooth with a permanent crown, giving you the smile you desire.
