Implant Technology *** Dental Implants

For the past 15 years Dr Audet and her team has been offering dental implants in the Baie-des-Chaleurs.

Dental implants are an excellent choice to prosthesis that causes discomfort. A dental implant is a metal stem resembling a screw that is composed of titanium, covered in a biocompatible material, and that has the ability to bind naturally to your existing bone. Implants are put in place at the jaw level and after a few months of healing they can replace your natural roots and support a partial or full prosthesis, or even a single tooth.

Dental implants offer a number of advantages :
- Durability
- Stability
- Comfort
- Sturdiness
- Aesthetic

If you have missing teeth or an uncomfortable dental prosthesis, please don’t hesitate to come in for a consultation.

When teeth are extracted, a substantial amount of bone that holds the teeth in place is also lost. Opposing teeth and those on each side of the edentulous space begin to change position and start to recede, which often leads to gum disease and jaw pain.

When all the teeth of an arch are gone, the maxilla (jaw bone) shrinks. This causes tension and abnormal slackening of the muscles of the face and neck. You may notice that people with missing teeth age quicker. Their lips are hollow, the nose is elongated and the chin prominent.

Lifetime solutions :
1- Replacement of an incisor tooth
2- Fixed prosthesis
3- Removable prosthesis attached to the implant

Dental implants are integrated into the jawbone replacing your natural roots, insuring the stability of the prosthesis. In fact, implants help preserve, and often restore the appearance of the face.

If you are tired of having an unstable partial or full prosthesis then dental implants could be for you !
