Restorative Care

Dental Implants

If you’re missing one or more teeth, dental implants are a popular and effective solution that can help restore your smile and improve your oral health. At Tooth Port Dental Centre, we offer dental implant services to our patients to help them achieve a beautiful, healthy smile.

The Dental Implant Process

Getting dental implants typically involves several steps over the course of a few months. The process may vary slightly depending on the patient’s individual needs and the number of implants they need, but here is a general overview of what you can expect:

Consultation

At your first appointment, our dental team will evaluate your teeth, gums, and jawbone to determine if you're a good candidate for dental implants. We'll discuss your goals, answer any questions you have, and create a treatment plan tailored to your needs.

Preparation

Before the implant can be placed, any damaged or decayed teeth will need to be removed, and the gums and jawbone will need to be prepared. This may include bone grafting or other procedures to ensure the implant has a strong foundation.

Implant placement

Once the jawbone is ready, the implant can be placed. Our skilled dentists will use special instruments to gently insert the implant into the jawbone. Depending on the patient's needs, this may be done under local anesthesia or IV sedation.

Healing

After the implant is placed, the healing process begins. It can take several weeks or months for the implant to fuse with the jawbone, creating a strong, stable foundation for the replacement tooth.

Abutment placement

Once the implant has healed, the abutment can be attached. This is a small connector piece that connects the implant to the replacement tooth.

Restoration

Finally, the replacement tooth (or teeth) can be attached to the abutment. This may involve a dental crown, bridge, or denture, depending on the number of missing teeth and the patient's needs.

All on Four

“All on Four” is a dental procedure that involves placing four implants in the upper or lower jaw to support a fixed bridge. This technique has been around for over 30 years and is considered the “standard of care” for implant-supported bridgework worldwide. The technology and components of dental implants have allowed this procedure to be accessible and affordable for patients who have lost all their teeth.
Missing teeth can cause pain and embarrassment, and we want to help you restore your smile. The All on Four procedure is an affordable, natural-looking solution that consists of a full arch of replacement teeth supported by dental implants. Patients who have received this treatment have reported that it has restored their ability to eat, smile, and feel more confident than ever before.
Almost anyone who can safely undergo a dental implant procedure can be a candidate for the All on Four procedure. This treatment is ideal for individuals with multiple failing teeth who do not want a denture. The All on Four procedure has a documented success rate of over 98% for over 10 years, making it one of the most successful dental restorative procedures. The goal of this permanent restoration is for you to have an implant bridge for the rest of your life, giving you the confidence to enjoy your favorite foods and smile without worry.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are a common dental treatment that is used to restore a damaged or weakened tooth. They are essentially caps that fit over the prepared tooth, providing strength and stability to the damaged tooth. At Tooth Port Dental Centre, we offer a range of dental crown options to help restore your teeth and improve your smile.
Dental crowns are typically used to restore teeth that have been weakened due to decay, large fillings, or damage from injury. They can also be used to improve the appearance of discoloured or misshapen teeth. Additionally, dental crowns are often used to support bridges and dentures, as they can provide additional stability and support to the surrounding teeth.
At Tooth Port Dental Centre, we offer several different types of dental crowns to meet the unique needs of our patients. Some of the most common types of dental crowns include:

Porcelain fused to metal crowns

These are the most common type of dental crown, as they are durable and can be matched to the colour of your natural teeth.

Ceramic crowns

These crowns are made entirely out of ceramic and can be used to restore front teeth, as they are very natural-looking.

Gold crowns

Gold crowns are very strong and durable and are often used on back teeth. They are also very long-lasting and require very little removal of the tooth structure.

Zirconia crowns

Zirconia crowns are a newer type of dental crown that is becoming more popular due to their strength and natural appearance.

Dental Bridges

If you have lost a tooth due to decay or an accident, you no longer have to deal with the gap or wait until dentures are needed. With a dental bridge, the replacement tooth is supported by your remaining natural teeth on either side, providing a solution for missing teeth.
A dental bridge, also known as a fixed bridge or fixed partial denture, can be used to replace one or more missing teeth as long as your adjacent teeth are healthy enough to support the artificial ones.
The process of creating a dental bridge includes several steps to ensure the teeth surrounding the lost tooth remain healthy and aligned. The first step involves preparing the teeth on each side of the missing tooth for crowns. Next, a dental lab custom-fabricates your false tooth and crowns. Finally, the dentist places the artificial tooth and bridge, followed by the new crowns, to firmly hold the replacement tooth in place.

I recently switched dentists because I needed an extraction (I thought) and my dentist wanted to refer me to a dental surgeon as she felt the tooth would be too difficult to extract. I decided I would try toothport dental in Angus, Ontario as I live in Angus. After a consultation with Dr. Nermine I decided upon a root canal. Because I am a senior with no dental benefits and have never had a root canal and was quite nervous Dr. Nermine set my mind at ease. She was easy to talk to, pleasant, understanding and she also gave me a small discount. I have to give two thumbs up for the dental assistant who was a blessing during the root canal! She constantly reassured me, asked me how I was doing, comforted me by touching my hand. I felt like I was in good hands at all times. Today my mouth feels good and I am glad I decided to switch to this dental office :)
