Dental ImplantsAn Overview
Dental implants are the most natural looking way to replace missing teeth. For patients who are missing one tooth or a whole arch of teeth, dental implants can be used as a secure and long-term treatment option. Dental implants have many benefits that make them the preferred method for a permanent dental restoration.
Stittsville, ON dental implant dentist Dr. Barakat uses dental implants to help patients restore the health, aesthetics, and function to their smile.
Patients with missing teeth are at a higher risk of developing a full range of oral and systemic health concerns such as gum disease, additional tooth loss, and recession of the jaw bone. Replacing missing teeth helps to secure the oral foundation for a functional and stable bite.
The Importance of Replacing Missing Teeth
Your teeth are made to work together to help you smile, eat, and talk. When you are missing even one tooth, these instinctive actions become difficult to do. Not to mention, having missing teeth can be embarrassing.
The way you look and feel about your appearance can have negative consequences on your life. Dr.Barakat uses dental implants as a solution for missing teeth in his Stittsville, ON cosmetic dentistry office. Tooth loss can lead to complex dental concerns especially shifting of your teeth if it is left untreated which will cause an unbalanced bite.
An unbalanced bite will lead to painful TMJ symptoms that may require costly TMJ treatment. Also, patients who do not replace missing teeth are more prone to developing tooth decay, additional tooth loss, and even bone deterioration. Dental implants are the most natural looking and permanent solution to tooth loss.

Dental Implants What to Expect
About The Dental Implant Procedure
The procedure for dental implants requires multiple visits over several months. Stittsville family dentist, Dr. Barakat has the training and expertise to offer full services for dental implants. After the comprehensive evaluation, he will create a personalized treatment plan.
Dr. Barakat will personally perform both phases of the dental implant process; the tooth implant surgery as well as the restoration with a dental crown, dental bridge or denture.
Placing the Implant – Stittsville, ON dental implant dentist Dr. Barakat will place the dental implant, a tiny titanium post, into the bone. The dental implant will be allowed to heal and integrate with the natural bone, serving as the artificial root for the new tooth. The healing process can take several months.
Depending on your case and the position of the missing tooth or teeth, a temporary dental crown may be placed in the mouth while the implant heals.
Restoring the Dental Implant – Once the dental implant has healed, Dr. Barakat will restore the dental implant by placing the prosthetic tooth. While the dental implant is healing, a custom made dental crown, bridge or denture will be fabricated at a dental laboratory.
These will serve as the replacement teeth. The crown, bridge or denture is secured to the dental implant for a permanent restoration.
