Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implants 

Tooth loss can lead to a variety of oral and overall health issues, including jawbone atrophy and nutritional deficiencies. At Elements Dental in Victoria, BC, we can provide dental implants, the leading solution for tooth loss. Dental implants are posts placed in the jaw and attached to a dental crown, bridge, or denture to fully restore the entire tooth structure. You can undergo all stages of your treatment in our office with precise care provided by Dr. Ray T. Chow, Dr. Elysa Kliman, and Dr. Alex Kim. 

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants act as artificial tooth roots. The small posts are attached to a restoration which replaces your entire tooth from root to crown. Implants can be used for varying degrees of tooth loss, from a single tooth to a full dental arch. In addition to traditional dental implants, we can also provide Teeth-in-a-Day. This advanced technique uses fewer implants to support your restoration, which can be placed immediately after your surgery.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer many advantages, including: 

  • Protection against jawbone atrophy
  • Completely restored dental function
  • Natural-looking aesthetics 
  • Secure tooth replacement 

Dental implants can provide you with the peace of mind you need to smile, eat, and speak confidently. 

Are You a Candidate? 

While implants are the preferred method for replacing missing teeth, not all patients are eligible for this treatment. Shortly after a tooth falls out, the jawbone begins to recede. This is because there are no tooth roots stimulating the tissue. The longer a patient takes to replace missing teeth, the worse jawbone atrophy can become.

Dental implants can provide you with the peace of mind you need to smile, eat, and speak confidently. 

Since dental implants rely on the stability provided by secure placement in the jawbone, it is essential that you have sufficient tissue to support the posts. However, our doctors may be able to perform a bone graft or sinus life procedure to rebuild the recessed jawbone. During your consultation, we will evaluate your candidacy and make the best recommendation to protect your oral health. 

What to Expect 

Typically, dental implants require at least two appointments. During the first appointment, the doctor will surgically place your implant posts into the jawbone. The treatment area will then need to fully heal before your final restoration can be placed. This typically takes about three to six months. Once healing is complete, you will return to our office for the restoration placement portion of the procedure. 

Outstanding Tooth Replacement

Dental implants replace lost tooth roots to provide the best support for dental restorations. Elements Dental provides every phase of this landmark restorative treatment. Dr. Chow can help you completely rebuild your smile with this life-changing solution.

Our Expertise

While dental implants can be provided by many dentists, it is imperative that your doctor possess the skills and experience necessary to precisely place the posts. Dr. Chow has undergone extensive training including the Kois Center, Pacific Implant Institute, and the Spear Center to provide patients with secure, durable implants. 

Dr. Chow's surgical expertise paired with restorative and cosmetic skills of Dr. Kim and Dr. Kliman, allows us to provide patients with an unparalleled level of dental implant care. Our team works together to provide you with safe, reliable dental implant surgery and restoration conveniently at our practice.

Elements Dental is a holistic, biological dental practice and we always have your overall health in mind. As such, we use biocompatible, high-quality materials to serve your best interests. We also use ozone therapy to remove harmful bacteria, to help prevent infection and aid in the healing process.
