Missing teeth are traditionally treated with bridges and dentures, but dental implants offer a superior method of tooth replacement.
Dr. Patrick Casey offers complete dental implants treatment in one location. He also uses advanced technology, including the cutting-edge i-CAT® system.
Why should I visit Smile Montreal to restore my oral health?
Take a Look at the Placement Process...
Implants Are the Only Dental Treatment to Stop Bone Loss
Dental implants not only replace your missing teeth. They also protect your future oral health, promote your overall health, and allow you to maintain a youthful appearance for several decades.
Your natural tooth roots send regenerative signals to your jawbone to stimulate the growth of new tissue. Because dental implants replace your tooth roots, they mimic these signals. In this way, they are the only type of restoration that can counteract jawbone degeneration and prevent future bone loss. When combined with a bone graft, implants can actually restore lost tissue. By maintaining the stability of your jaw, implants can also prevent further tooth loss and the sunken look that results.
Tooth Loss Is a Common Issue
Advanced Technology Ensures Optimal Outcomes
Our Montreal office utilizes the most up-to-date dental implant techniques and materials available. We are one of the few practices in Canada currently using the cutting-edge i-CAT® system to analyze and pinpoint the location of the implant sites. The i-CAT® system is similar to a regular CAT scan, although it produces detailed oral diagnostics without subjecting patients to uncomfortable, claustrophobic conditions. The power of the i-CAT® is that it shows us in advance where bone is located and allows us to only open up the tissue where it's necessary. Therefore, the procedure is more precise and less invasive to the patient, which causes less discomfort and increases long-term success.
We also work with nSequence® labs, the leader in surgical guides for implant dentistry, to precisely plan and perform your treatment with your final restoration in mind.
Restore the Function and Appearance of Your Smile
If you are missing one or more teeth, or have teeth in need of extraction, dental implants provide a solution. At our dental practice in Montreal, Quebec, we place and restore dental implants, so that they can reach their full potential and integrate seamlessly into the smile. This is possible through our training and use of high-tech diagnostic equipment. At Smile Montreal, we plan the surgery from start to finish in a virtual setting so that there are no surprises. This allows our dental implant candidates to achieve the best ultimate outcome, with no surprises or shortcomings. We take this approach because once the implant is in the mouth, we cannot change its position. It is extremely important to have your destination planned before the implant placement takes place to ensure positive results. If you suffer from multiple oral health conditions, we can combine dental implant treatment with a comprehensive full mouth reconstruction plan, as well.
The placement of the implant itself is extremely important as it allows us to get the most natural result possible and deliver an implant that will last a lifetime - but it isn't until the restoration has been attached that it becomes functional, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing. This step requires skill, as the dental restoration - porcelain crown, dental bridge, or implant-supported dentures - must look and function naturally while not impacting surrounding teeth. Our team of doctors is familiar with the process and can deliver superb results. To schedule a consultation where you can discuss the course of treatment and the cost of your dental implants investment, contact Smile Montreal today.
We also provide All-on-4® implants, a solution that can support an entire denture with just four implants. Often, these implants can support a denture immediately after they have been placed.
Dr. Casey has worked with some of the leading dental implants specialists in Canada and the United States and has the skill and experience necessary to produce beautiful results. We receive patients from throughout Canada as well as patients from around the world who are looking for quality implant dentistry.
Enjoy the Benefits of Dental Implants
At Montreal Smile, we want you to enjoy a beautiful grin, complete dental function, and a healthy sense of confidence. Implants will provide the strongest support for your dental restoration, strengthening your bite and improving your appearance. Your overall oral health will also improve since implants can actually prevent jawbone recession.
A Versatile Restorative Solution
Through a carefully planned dental implant procedure, Dr. Charles or Dr. Patrick Casey will place these small titanium posts in your jawbone. The quick surgery will pose negligible risks and, thanks to our effective sedation options, minimal discomfort. As your bone heals over the next four to six months, the implants will integrate with the surrounding bone tissue. After your full recovery, your dentist can attach a lifelike restoration on top of the implants. These posts can support a crown, a bridge, or a full denture, depending on the number of teeth that you want to replace.
Enjoy a Lifelike Appearance and Restored Function
After you receive dental implant-supported restorations, the first thing you may notice is that they look and feel incredibly realistic. Other restorations are removable, or they rely on the surrounding teeth for support. In contrast, implants will actually replace your dental roots, firmly anchoring your restoration in your mouth. Therefore, your new teeth will never slip out of place. You can speak and smile confidently, and you will enjoy near-perfect dental function. In most cases, you will not need to make any changes to your eating habits.
Along with restored function, implant-supported restorations also provide a lifelike appearance. The new restoration will sit right on your gums. You will not have to worry about metal attachment pieces, adhesive, or other components. We work with a world-renowned ceramist who uses advanced, realistic materials. Your restoration will be expertly crafted to achieve a natural color, shape, and luster.
A Long-Lasting Investment in Your Smile
With proper care, dental implants will typically last the rest of your life. It will not be difficult to maintain your restorations. You will simply need to brush, floss, and use mouthwash every day, just as you would for your natural teeth. You should also visit our office for your regular checkups and cleanings, even if you have a full implant-supported denture. While your restoration will not be subject to decay, gum disease could eventually cause the metal posts to become exposed. The upfront cost of dental implants is typically higher than that of other restorations. However, because they are more durable and long-lasting than other options, implants are well worth the investment.
