How Dental Implants Work

The implant directly replaces a lost tooth root. After the implant is placed in the jaw, your dentist will attach an abutment device that will serve as the connection point between your implant and your replacement tooth.

I've Lived with Missing Teeth for Years Why Should I Get Dental Implants? 

Missing teeth can negatively affect your quality of life in many ways. Dental implants an resolve many of these problems:

Healthier-Looking Smile

When you lose teeth to injury, decay, or infection, they leave visible gaps in your smile. Dental implants can provide the ultimate support to replacement teeth, completing your smile and boosting your self-esteem.

Improves Jawbone Health

Missing teeth can cause your jaw to shrink and weaken. Your jawbone actually fuses with an implant after placement, and the stimulation provided by the implant encourages the growth of strong, healthy bone tissue.

More Youthful Appearance

Missing teeth and shrinking jawbone tissue can give your face an aged look. Implant-supported restorations can maintain your facial features so you don't look aged beyond your years.

Superior Denture Support

Traditional dentures can slip or fall out when you eat or speak. Implant-supported dentures stay put, allowing you to enjoy meals and conversations without fear of embarrassment.

Clearer Speech

Your tongue and teeth work together to produce certain sounds. Without stable teeth, your speech can become slurred, mumbled, or garbled. Implants help your restorations contribute to enunciation so you can speak clearly and confidently.

Long-Lasting Investment

With proper brushing and flossing, implants from Norris Dental can last a lifetime, while our top-grade replacement teeth can last for more than a decade.

It's never too late to do something about a missing tooth or several missing teeth. If you live in the Vancouver, BC, area, contact Norris Dental today for a consultation. Our highly trained cosmetic dentists will treat you with respect, compassion, and personalized care while restoring your smile and oral functions with dental implants.

The Implant Procedure Timeline

You will undergo two oral surgeries over the course of about six months. After you've been confirmed as a healthy candidate for implants, and your customized treatment plan has been created, the process can begin.

Surgery #1

Incisions will be made in your gums where a tooth or teeth are missing. The implants will be surgically placed into your jaw.

Healing Period #1

Over the next four to six months, your jawbone will fuse with the implants, anchoring them in place.

Surgery #2

You will come back to our Vancouver practice for a minor procedure to have an abutment attached to each implant. The abutment acts as a connector between the implant and a restoration.

Healing Period #2

Your gums will heal around the abutment over the course of a few weeks.

Restoration Attachment

Your customized, natural-looking restorations can be attached to the abutments. From now on, you can talk and eat normally with a dazzling, complete smile.


After your surgeries, you may experience mild swelling, soreness, and residual bleeding. These should all subside fairly quickly. Ice packs, prescribed pain meds, and sticking to soft foods during healing periods can help reduce discomfort. Questions? Contact us anytime.

After my Dentist of 13 years retired I was referred to Dr. Norris through a friend. The initial exam with Dr. Norris was the most comprehensive dental exam I have ever had...The other staff at his office are equally pleasant and professional. The hour and a half drive into his office is well worth the trip!
