Missing teeth can have a significant impact on your self-confidence and personal and professional life. Regardless of the cause of your missing teeth, it can have a major impact on the function and shape of your mouth and the appearance of your smile.

Dental implants in North York are a practical solution to replace missing teeth. Lawrence Park Dental in North York, under the vision of Dr. Jose Olavo Queiroz has successfully restored the function of many patient smiles.


A dental implant is a dental procedure known as the replacement tooth root. Made from titanium, implants offer a stable foundation for the removable or fixed prosthesis and matches the natural tooth look. Used to replace one and multiple teeth or secure loose fitting dentures, dental implants bond to the jaw.

The implant is surgically placed into the jawbone under local anesthetic, where it fuses with the surrounding bone through a process called osseointegration. This integration creates a stable and durable support for the artificial tooth or teeth. Dental implants are designed to mimic the natural tooth structure, including the root, and they offer several advantages over other tooth replacement options.

After a healing period, a permanent restoration (crown) is crafted to fit on top of the implant.


The benefits of implant placement include:

  • Improved speech: It improves speech and allows you to speak properly without any slurring or mumbling of words.
  • Improved smile: It improves the appearance of your smile as implants look like your natural teeth.
  • Quality of life: Patient that are used to wearing loose-fitting dentures experience improved quality of life and comfort.
  • Enhanced functionality: Dental implants restore the ability to bite and chew properly, allowing you to eat a wide variety of foods.
  • Self-esteem: The implant placement improves self-esteem where you get back your own smile with complete confidence.
  • Bite problems: Resolve joint pain or bite problems. Restore function of your bite caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
  • Convenience and comfort: Unlike removable dentures, dental implants are fixed in place and do not require adhesives. They become a permanent part of your mouth, eliminating the inconvenience of taking them out for cleaning or during sleep.

However, it’s important to note that dental implant placement requires a sufficient amount of healthy jawbone to support the implant. In some cases, additional procedures such as bone grafting may be necessary to augment the bone structure before implant placement.
