    • Loose Dentures? Missing teeth? Fix them with Dental Implants

      As a leading provider of dental implants, at J4H Dental Implant Clinic we can treat a single tooth replacement or complex full mouth rehabilitation. We offer safe, minimally invasive procedures that results in less discomfort, reduced swelling and shortened healing times.

      What is a Dental Implant?

      A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.

      Why J4H Dental?

      At J4H Dental we offer pre-treatment implant planning software that is designed to make implant insertions faster, easier, safer, and more precise. You can see in “real time” your treatment plan!

      The use of 3D imaging information facilitates an optimal assessment of bone and prosthetic issues, coordination of the entire treatment team (including the dental lab), and clear communication of your custom treatment plan. Using the very latest in implant technology ensures superior function and natural-looking esthetics for our patients.

      For patients who are looking for efficient and effective full restoration, we offer Teeth-in-a-day – where technically you walk in with your old teeth or old dentures and walk out with your brand new set of teeth and a Big Brand New Smile!

      All-on-4 is an alternative to the common known dentures or “plates”. This state-of-the art technology uses only four implants to support an immediately loaded full-arch prosthesis. Thus, leaving your new teeth extremely stable and unlike dentures there is no fear of ripping them off because of eating harder foods. They look and feel like your own teeth!

      As a premier dental implantologist, Dr. John Nesan brings world-class implant techniques to his patients with coursework in surgical implanting and restoring implants.

      How Implants Work

      Implants fuse with the jawbone and offer support to man-made teeth. Dentures, bridges or single teeth mounted to the implants won’t slip or shift in your mouth. The secure fit also helps man-made teeth feel more natural than typical bridges or dentures. And perhaps most importantly, dental implants help to preserve the bone after teeth are lost or extracted. Implants can last a lifetime with the proper care.

      There are many reasons to choose single tooth implants if you are missing one or more teeth. These include:

      • Cosmetic concerns, if a large space exists between teeth

      • Missing teeth can affect how you speak

      • Missing molars can affect the way you chew

      • Surrounding teeth can begin shifting if a missing tooth is not replaced

      • Bone loss can occur around the missing tooth

      Implant-Supported Bridges and Dentures

      Dental implants can be used to support a bridge when several teeth are missing. The bridge replaces the lost natural teeth and some of the tooth roots. An implant-supported bridge does not require support from surrounding teeth. If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported bridge can replace the missing teeth and some of the tooth roots. Because the implants integrate with the jawbone, an implant-supported denture is comfortable and stable, allowing you to bite and chew naturally.

      Mini Implants or Single-piece implants

      Mini dental implants are generally half the size in diameter of a regular dental implant. Mini implants offer many benefits, and they can also be used in situations where regular implants cannot. Typically the use for mini implants is to install a full upper or lower denture. Rather than using a single implant for a single tooth, an entire lower or upper set of teeth are directly attached to the gum line. Mini implants are generally less expensive than regular implants.

      The Process

      The first and most important step is to consult with your doctor about whether dental implants are a good fit for you. Thereafter, the doctor can plan out your treatment with your goals in mind.

      Generally, treatment takes places in three stages. The first is the physical placement of the implant into the jawbone. Thereafter, the healing process usually ranges from a few days to a couple of months depending on various factors. During this time, the bone in your jaw grows around the implant in a process called osseointegration. This process is what makes implants strong enough to last a lifetime. The placement of the artificial tooth or teeth is the final step in the process. The doctor creates a new tooth for you, called a dental crown, which are attached to the implant posts. The crown is made to match the shape, size, colour and fit to blend in with your other teeth.
