At Lynn Creek Dental, serving patients in North Vancouver, we're pleased to offer implants for our patients. Implants create a foundation for replacement teeth which will look, feel and work just like your natural teeth. Learn more about the procedure below, or contact us today for an appointment.
The Implant Procedure
Dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone, and consist of metal anchors that function as tooth root substitutes. For most of our patients it takes 2 surgical procedures to properly place the implants, after which the second phase begins.
During the second phase, the dentist will begin to make your new teeth after taking an impression. Attachments are connected to the implants that are already in place, and the newly fabricated teeth are placed onto the attachments. The procedure as a whole generally takes 6 to 8 months, but most of our patients experience no disruption to their daily life, thanks to temporary dentures or crowns put in place before the implants are finalized.
