A dental implant is a surgical component (often referred to as a screw) that is placed into the bone. Once the implant has firmly attached to the bone, the dental prosthesis, or artificial tooth/teeth, can be attached to it. The prosthesis might be a crown, bridge or denture.
Excellent Success Rate
The average long-term success rate of dental implants is 93% or higher when placed, restored and cared for properly. Dr. Bryan McGuinness of Meadow Ridge Dental Centre has been a member of the Fraser Valley Implant Study Club since 1995. This is a group of dentists and dental specialists who meet to improve their knowledge and skills with regard to the placement and restoration of dental implants so they can achieve the best possible results for their patients.
