Your Dental Implant Specialist in Surrey, BC.

Dental implants can transform your life. When choosing these implants, you will set the foundation for your replacement teeth, providing a more natural look and feel and improving functionality. Dental implant treatment also preserves your facial contours and prevents bone deterioration caused by missing teeth. Call us to schedule a consultation with our dental implant surgeon to determine if they’re right for you.

For many patients, dental implants become necessary after tooth removal. When the dentist removes teeth, filling in the gaps with a dental implant is vital to protect the other teeth from shifting and preserve bone tissues.

What are
Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts surgically implanted into the jaw. These posts become the new tooth root with the bone bonding to it to create a strong foundation. The posts protrude through the gums for attaching the false tooth. Dental implant treatment is meant to restore functionality and protect against bone loss in the jaw.

The Dental Implant
Surgical Procedure

Your dental implant surgery will likely require two appointments. The implant specialist will place the titanium roots into your jawbone at the first appointment. The healing and bonding process takes three to six months after surgery. You will likely get a temporary replacement tooth during this process and may be limited to soft foods while you wait for the implant to be created and your mouth to heal.

The second appointment with your dental implant specialist will attach a small post to the root to serve as anchors for the artificial teeth. Your dentist will then secure the artificial tooth to the post. You can expect the entire dental implant treatment to take six to eight months with minimal disruption to your daily life.

Our Surrey Clinic is Up-To-Date with the Latest in Dental Implant Technology

Dr. Bahi, your dental implant surgeon in Surrey, BC, can place single-stage implants requiring one procedure. However, the procedure still requires six weeks to heal before placing the artificial implant. In some situations, dental implant surgery can occur on the same day as tooth extraction. These dental implant advances allow our dental team to remove teeth and replace them with an implant in just one visit.

Dental implant treatment requires an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a restorative dentist to team up. Dr. Bahi is responsible for dental implant surgery, tooth extractions, and dental bone grafting when needed. A restorative dentist will make and fit your permanent artificial tooth and any temporary solutions necessary for healing.

Dr. Bahi’s office has a hospital-style operating suite for in-office dental implant surgery for optimal sterility. However, we may request inpatient hospital surgery for individuals with specific anesthetic or medical needs. It may also be necessary for patients requiring extensive dental bone grafting from other areas of the body.

Why Should You Get
Dental Implants?

When you are missing several teeth, either recently lost or a long-term concern, you are likely missing out on functionality and confidence. With dental implants, you can restore your smile and improve oral function. They increase your self-confidence and offer peace of mind.

Dr. Per-Ingvar Branemark, a Swedish scientist and orthopedic surgeon, created the dental implant procedure over 35 years ago. His revolutionary research gave hope to individuals to restore their confidence and comfort to overcome the embarrassment and frustration of missing teeth.

Why Select
Dental Implants?

Over More Traditional Types Of Restorations?

Dental implants protect your surrounding teeth, which are often damaged when placing bridges and other tooth replacement options. Removing dentures nightly can be a hassle. They can also slip, leading to discomfort and embarrassment.
