Oral surgery


If you have missing teeth for a while, loss of bone in your jaw is common. It’s the body’s normal response to tooth loss, infection, gum disease or other trauma. For dental implants to work, there must be enough bone in the jaw, which is strong enough to hold and support the implant. 

If this is not the case, you may need some other treatment at your Newmarket dentist before your implant treatment can begin, such as bone augmentation, bone grafting or other oral surgery treatment. 

At your initial consultation by your local Newmarket dentist, we will determine how much bone is available and the shape of the bone. This assessment is done through visual examination, palpation of the bone ridge and with advanced x-ray techniques.

If you feel anxious about having dental treatment, rest assured you’re not alone. It’s very common to be worried about going to the dentist, or even to experience dental phobia. If you have a severe dental phobia, talk to us about how sedation might help. There are a variety of ways to administer sedation to ensure you’re calm and relaxed before treatment begins. Find out more about how we can make your visit to the dentist easier. 

Treatments

Single dental implant

An implant is a great choice for a single missing tooth, whether it’s visible or not, and the results can be life-changing. A single implant provides the foundation for a crown, which will be created at Terrace Dental Care to match your teeth exactly.

Treatments

Multiple dental implants

If you’re missing more than one tooth, there are a number of options available to you at Terrace Dental Care.
