Stop hiding your smile! Dental implants are the most permanent, natural-looking solution for missing teeth. North York Dental offers robust and effective dental implants that firmly anchor replacement teeth when there are no supporting teeth for bridges.

We have years of implantlogy experience and are also constantly upgrading our training, so we’re versed in the most current implant procedures. If you are interested in dental implants, we’ll conduct a detailed radiographic examination and health history. We’ll make sure you understand each step of the process and keep you comfortable throughout the procedure.

About Dental Implants

Bone loss of the jaw occurs after some time where teeth are missing. Dental implants slow this process down and act as roots for replacement teeth.

The implant consists of a threaded titanium screw or post, surgically placed into the jawbone. If the procedure is successful, the surrounding bone grows into the microscopic surface of the implant, making it more secure. This process is called osseointegration.

Once the implant has healed, a replacement tooth can be put in place. The entire procedure usually takes six to eight months. Most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily life.

Implants have a very high success rate and can last indefinitely if properly cared for. Unlike bridges, they don’t require preparation or drilling of healthy neighboring teeth.

North York Dental Clinic | Services - orthodontics

We have decades of experience in orthodontics, but we also have up-to-date training in the most advanced orthodontic treatments – like invisible braces and Invisalign braces. Fixed Braces – Traditional wire braces are still the most efficient and affordable way to straighten teeth, particularly in cases of major crowding or bite issues.


North York Dental Clinic | Services - oral and perio surgery

There are different types of soft-tissue grafts, but all involve removing a strip of gum tissue and stitching it into a treated area, to cover root exposure. Flap Debridement – When gum disease (or periodontitis) is too advanced to perform simple scaling or root planning, we will conduct open flap debridement. Osseous Surgery – Gum disease sometimes causes holes in the bone around your teeth.


North York Dental Clinic | Services - cosmetic dentistry

Dentures – We offer a range of dentures to replace missing teeth, including conventional removable dentures, and more permanent dentures relying on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants. Dental Bridges – Also called ‘fixed partial dentures,’ bridges are false teeth, fused between two porcelain crowns designed to fill an area left by a missing tooth or teeth.


North York Dental Clinic | Services - restorative care

Digital X-rays decrease radiation exposure by over 80% and allow you to instantly see what we see on a screen in front of you. Brand new technology and the most up-to-date practices mean you are getting the best dental care available in Toronto. Tooth Fillings & Restorations – A filling is used to ‘fill-in’ the space left in a tooth when a cavity is removed.


North York Dental Clinic | Services - hygiene

When you come in for your check-up, you’ll get more than just a one-time cleaning – we’ll set you up with a personalized dental treatment plan that addresses your whole health. Fluoride Treatment – Acid-producing bacteria collect around the teeth and gums in a sticky, clear film called ‘plaque’ which is responsible for tooth decay.


North York Dental Clinic | Services - conscious sedation

Eating & Drinking Do not give your child solid foods, milk or dairy products at least 6 hours prior to the sedation appointment. Oral conscious sedation is recommended in order to make your Child’s dental visit as easy and comfortable as possible. You can rinse out your mouth; just try to minimize swallowing excess water so your stomach remains basically empty.
