Many people who are missing a tooth – or who are missing all their teeth – are good candidates for dental implants. We offer dental implant procedures and other dental services to our patients here at the Victoria office of Dr. Cheryl Handley.
Minor Dental Surgery
Implants are titanium posts planted in your jawbone during dental surgery when you’re anaesthetized. The titanium eventually fuses to the bone, so these posts are permanent. We will refer you to a qualified specialist for the necessary surgery.
No More Spaces!
After a healing period of a few months, a false “tooth” is placed on the post. Dr. Handley can even use those posts to affix your dentures permanently. You’ll have a permanent tooth or teeth where the hole was before.
If you have a damaged tooth, there is a strong likelihood that you will need to inquire about dental crowns in Victoria, BC. You may be wondering what a dental crown is, and for good reason! It is a tooth-shaped cap that Dr. Handley will place over your tooth to do the following: restore the shape, size, strength and appearance of the tooth. Once the crown has been cemented into place, it fully covers the visible section of the tooth that lies above the gum line.
When might you need dental crowns in Victoria, BC? Dr. Handley may recommend a crown to
Restore a fractured tooth
Fill in a tooth after a root canal
Ensure that a weak tooth won’t fracture
Attaching a bridge
