Dental Implant Restorations
Dental implants have changed the way we think about tooth replacement. Traditionally, teeth that have been lost have relied upon bridges or dentures to replace their bite surface. While bridges or partial dentures maintain the space between teeth and help with effective chewing, they do not promote jaw bone remineralization.
Dental implants are installed into the jaw bone, where their titanium roots bond with bone to provide strength and support to the artificial root. When bite force is applied to the artificial tooth on an implant, the force is distributed into the boney structure that surrounds its artificial root and promotes remineralization. Without remineralization the bone can resorb, leading to a loss of strength and integrity in the jaw.
What is Dental Implant Restoration?
Dental implant restoration is the process of completing the dental implantation process by placing the crown on the artificial root system. Once the titanium implant has had sufficient time to undergo osseointegration (bonding with bone tissue) and once the soft tissues have healed, you’ll see us to complete your dental implantation process.
Implants Using CEREC Technology
Our patients enjoy the benefits of CEREC® technology for their implant restorations. With CEREC® crowns, we use a technology that uses computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing to produce a crown that integrates comfortably into the dental arch and looks just like a natural tooth. These crowns are produced on-site and can sometimes be installed the very same day. To learn more, contact Nebula Dental today!

How to Care For Dental Implants
Dental implants are strong and resistant to decay, making them easy to care for. The soft tissues around the implant, however, are still subject to the effects of food debris or plaque bacteria that can accumulate around the implant. For this reason, we recommend caring for your dental implant in the same way that you care for your natural teeth. This means brushing your teeth at the beginning of the day and at the end of the day, at a minimum, and flossing at least once daily. Flossing between the crown and neighbouring teeth is necessary to prevent food debris getting trapped between the implant and a natural tooth, which can lead to decay. Be sure to floss along the gum line to ensure that gums remain healthy and minimize the irritating effects of plaque.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you are interested in learning more about dental implants, or to find out if you are a candidate for the procedure, we recommend booking an appointment with one of our dental professionals. Your dentist will be able to offer intraoral scanning to determine whether your tissue structure would lend itself well to the procedure, as well as make recommendations about how to get started with one or more dental implants.
