Dental Implant Services In Aldergrove, BC
As permanent replacements for missing teeth, dental implants are the only treatment that restores both the root and crown of teeth, leaving you with a smile that looks as natural as possible. Dr. Curtis Soong offers implant dentistry in Aldergrove, BC to help patients get comfortable and long-lasting treatment for tooth loss.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Unlike removable or semi-permanent restorations, dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance. A dental implant is made up of a titanium post, which looks like small screw, an attachment piece, called an abutment, and replacement teeth, which can be a dental crown, bridge, or full denture.
When attached to a dental implant post, your replacement teeth will be strong and durable, so you can enjoy rejuvenated oral function. No more limiting your diet to avoid loose dentures, or for fear of damaging a bonded dental bridge. The posts of the implants are placed via a quick oral surgery procedure into bone in your jaw – much like where your natural tooth roots would be situated. After placement, the implant naturally bonds with surrounding bone to create a sturdy base for your replacement teeth. The result is hassle-free, comfortable, and life-like replacement teeth.
Planning your Implant Treatment
If you are interested in getting dental implants in Aldergrove, we welcome you into our dental office for an oral health exam and customized treatment plan. During your visit, Dr. Soong will use digital x-rays to get a clear picture of your oral health. He’ll also perform a comprehensive check-up to examine missing teeth as well as soft tissue health. Good candidates for implant placement are patients who are in good health, with no signs of periodontal disease or diminished bone volume. If, for any reason, your plan of care includes pre-treatments to ensure successful implant placement, we can help you establish improved tissue health before oral surgery.
We work closely with a local oral surgeon for the surgical placement of the implant posts. Quality of care is important to Dr. Soong and his team, which is why we function as a cohesive team for best results.
