People in and around Burlington, ON have once again shown their love and loyalty towards Dr. Swati Khanna (Dentistry at La Salle) by choosing her for the “Best Dentist” Readers’ Choice Award for 2018. Dr. Khanna was also chosen for this award in 2017 and 2016.
When you lose a tooth, your first concern is probably cosmetic. However, missing teeth can cause many oral health problems as well. We recommend dental implants to our patients for maximum aesthetic and health benefits. Led by Dr. Swati Khanna, Dentistry at LaSalle has the onsite capabilities to handle all aspects of this advanced tooth replacement process.
Other offices in Aldershot and the Greater Burlington, ON area, may handle one or two aspects of the process, such as the planning and restoration of the implant. But, when it comes to the actual placement of the implant, these dentists have to refer that service out to a specialist, such as an oral surgeon. As you might imagine, this adds to the cost, hassle, and stress of the process of completing your smile.

The basics about dental implants
An implant is essentially a prosthetic tooth root. It is inserted in the jawbone, where a natural root would be. The implant serves dual functions, providing excellent stability for replacement teeth and maintaining the bone’s health and strength.
Dental implant treatment is highly customizable, to replace one or multiple teeth. The number, type, and size of implants needed will be determined after a comprehensive consultation. There are multiple implant options to meet the unique needs of each patient.
- A single implant topped with a porcelain crown is the most common solution for an individual missing tooth.
- Two or more implants can be used to support a specially designed bridge for replacing multiple teeth. The restoration is custom-designed to fill the gaps without disturbing remaining natural teeth.
- For replacing all teeth, an implant-supported denture may be recommended. Because these dentures do not need suction to hold them in place, they do not cover the roof of your mouth, making them more comfortable and natural feeling than traditional dentures.
- All-On-Four is an innovative implant denture system that uses just four implants to support the plate, making the procedure faster and more economical.
- If you already wear standard removable dentures, they can be retrofitted for dental implants.
The complete implant process generally takes between four and nine months to complete. Patients have the option of wearing temporary restorations. So, they can eat and smile normally during the healing phase.
What is a Dental Implant? Explained by Dr. Swati Khanna
If you are looking for a natural way of getting a missing tooth replaced and do not want to worry about maintaining dentures, dental implants are for you. Watch this video as Dr. Swati Khanna explains how dental implants are designed and work.
What is a dental implant and how does it work?
If you are missing teeth, then the other teeth will take the load for those teeth. You would have an open space not only just for cosmetic purposes but also for your dental health.
If you are missing a tooth, then the other teeth take a lot more force. They do more work than if you had a full set of teeth when the forces are divided.
What replacement options are there for missing teeth?
If you are missing a tooth, there are various options. We normally discuss which option is right for you. Dental implants are usually the best option, and there are few reasons for that.
- The dental implants do not rely on the other teeth
- You are not reducing the other teeth
- You are not getting support from them
So the adjacent teeth don't get compromised in the long run. With implants, wherever you have lost a tooth and that tooth is replaced while the other teeth stay where they are.
Can dental implants help stabilize dentures?
We use implants to support dentures. If the dentures are very loose and you're not able to eat what you want and to enjoy life, then dental implants are a great solution for dentures.
With implants, dentures have more retention, and they don't move as much, so you're able to enjoy life.
