A dental implant is a small titanium screw that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. Dental implants can be placed in either the upper or lower jaws. A dental implant fuses with the bone and becomes a good anchor for the replacement tooth. Dental implants can be used in solutions for replacing single or multiple missing teeth. Our team of dentists serve patients from Bowmanville,Whitby, Brooklin, Oshawa and surrounding regions for dental implant treatment.
Many people who consider implants have removable, conventional dentures for lower and upper jaws, or have removable bridges. These people experience a significant improvement in their ability to chew food comfortably after their dental implant treatment.
Our team of dentists in Bowmanville are trained in the use of PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) Therapy to accelerate healing during surgical procedures such as for dental implant placement and bone/gum grafts.
The PRF is a fibrin matrix prepared using your own blood at the time of surgery. Surgical sites filled with PRF show faster healing times and improved gum and bone healing.
PRF is very similar to procedures being used to help professional athletes recover faster from sports injuries.
Dr. Mark Bishara is a published author on the topic of PRF and its application in top dental magazines such as Dentistry Today. Here is the link to one of his articles: PRF Article
