Sophisticated, comprehensive dental implant service at your neighbourhood dentist’s office
In some shape or form, smiles are forever. You deserve to put your healthiest, most confident face forward. Dr. Giulio Spagnuolo and his onsite dental implant service in London, Ontario, restores smiles that have been marred by tooth loss. Dr. Spagnuolo knows that conventional replacement teeth may look natural. But they may ultimately fail in the function department. How can this be? Dental bridges and dentures have historically rebuilt the structure of the tooth that is seen above the gumline, the crown. They do not account for the roots that hold the teeth in place. Dental implants replace both the roots of the teeth and the crowns. So, since they are designed like natural teeth, you are rewarded with ultimate comfort and lasting function and health.
Sophisticated tooth replacement at your neighbourhood dentist’s office
It’s nice being in the center of it all, within easy driving distance to major metros on both sides of the border; however, even with so many amenities at our disposal, not every dentist is trained and equipped to offer dental implant service. Other dental offices in and around London, Ontario, may put the finishing touch on the implant: the restoration (implant-retained crown, bridge, denture). This is the final step in the process. So, who handles the rest of the procedure? In these cases, the dentists would refer you to specialists, which can add to the expense and stress of getting your new teeth. Plus, these providers do not know your situation. We Smile Dentistry emphasizes the continuity of care. We get to know our patients, and not just their teeth and gums. Since Dr. Spagnuolo is qualified and has the technology to place implants, every step of the process can be performed adeptly and efficiently at his London, Ontario office.
The process is straightforward and no big deal for our patients who have gone through it:
- Consultation and evaluation to determine if you are a great candidate for dental implants or other forms of tooth replacement and identify if mini-implants or traditional implants are best for you.
- As needed among those patients who have lost bone, the treatment site will be built up through techniques such as grafting.
- Planning by Dr. Spagnuolo determines exactly where he will position each implant in the jaw.
- Shaped like a natural tooth root, he will precisely place the implant in the jawbone.
In the weeks following treatment, the replacement tooth root (implant) will join the surrounding bone. This is a natural process known as osseointegration. Dental implants (and other types of implants) are generally made from medical-grade titanium, which is lightweight, strong, and biocompatible. So, this material is made to become one with other living tissues! With the implant as a strong foundation, you return to our office to get the restorative crown, bridge, or denture that everyone sees when you smile.
Designed like real teeth, implants preserve bone health and density and last indefinitely with great oral care and recall visits to We Smile Dentistry. Call (226) 605-0042 to schedule your appointment with Dr. Spagnuolo in London, ON.
