Natural Look and Feel
Don’t let missing teeth ruin your smile. Dental implants provide an effective and attractive solution to missing by restoring your smile’s natural look and feel. Typically made from metal or porcelain, dental implants are surgically inserted directly into the jaw bone, creating a permanent base to support a dental crown.
At Benitez Dental Clinic, we take the time to craft your replacement crowns to match the exact shape and color of your natural teeth. The result is a dental prosthesis that is practically indistinguishable from your natural teeth in both appearance and functionality.
Qualifying patients often opt for dental implants over dentures or dental bridges because they’re permanent and easy to maintain.

Restore Tooth Health
Missing teeth impact more than just your appearance. Tooth gaps leave room for teeth to shift around and become crowded or misaligned. A complete set of healthy teeth is also essential for maintaining face shape and jaw strength. Dental implants restore missing teeth, so you enjoy good oral health for years to come.
Natural Look and Feel
Dental implants are surgically inserted into the jawbone and act as synthetic tooth roots, providing a sturdy and resilient base to support the custom-made dental crowns. These crowns are matched to your unique tooth shape and enamel color. The end result is a dental prosthesis that looks and feels so natural you may even forget which tooth is the implant.
Face Shape Preservation
A full set of teeth is crucial for maintaining facial structure. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants helps restore the shape of your face, keeping you looking young and healthy.
What to Expect During a Tooth Implant
Consultation and Planning
To help us determine if dental implants are right for you, you’ll first need to schedule a consultation at our Mississauga dental clinic. During this initial exam, your doctor will use an x-ray to check the health of your jawbone and teeth to make sure your dental condition is adequate for receiving the implants. We’ll then provide you with a timeline of the implant process, so you’ll know what to expect at every step along the way.
First, the doctor will numb your mouth with a local anesthetic. This ensures that you’ll feel little to no discomfort during the procedure. Once the area is sufficiently numb, the doctor will begin by making a small incision in the gum to access the jawbone. They will then drill a small hole in the bone to receive the implant. Next, they’ll place the implant and close the gum tissue over the top. It typically takes one to two weeks for the gum tissue to heal– however, you shouldn’t feel any discomfort after the first week.
Your New Tooth
Once we’ve placed the implant, you’ll need to allow time for the surgical site to heal and for the bone to fuse with the implant. This process can take anywhere from three to six months, depending on several factors, including your age, your dental health, and your body’s natural recovery rate. Once the implant has healed, we’ll schedule one last appointment to mount your new, customized dental crown. During this visit, your doctor will attach an abutment to the implant before seating the crown on top of it. You can immediately begin using your new dental implant just like a natural tooth.
