Dental Implants in Coquitlam, BC
At Greenline Dental, we have the privilege of sharing our Coquitlam dental clinic with our friends at Apple Dental Implant Centre. This allows us to provide our patients with a one-stop shop for all things restorative dentistry. Your dentist may refer you to a specialist at Apple Dental if you have experienced permanent tooth loss and require a permanent solution to restore the function and look of your smile.
How Dental Implants Work
There are three components to a dental implant: a titanium post, an abutment, and an artificial crown or bridge that will complete your smile with a symmetrical, durable, and realistic tooth. From start to finish, getting a dental implant can take a few months, depending on the state of your gum tissue and whether any additional bone grafting is needed. Your Apple Dental practitioner will create a custom treatment plan for you!
How to Know if a Dental Implant is Right for You
A dental implant is a permanent and aesthetically appealing solution for treating adult tooth loss. Your dentist may recommend a dental implant if the damage to your tooth is to a degree where full tooth extraction is in the best interest of your oral health. You might consider a dental implant to fill the gap in order to prevent your remaining teeth from shifting and crowding into the empty tooth socket.
