Dental implants are a safe and effective way to replace missing teeth that have been in use for over 30 years. A proper dental implant will provide you with an improved confidence in your smile, restore the efficiency of eating, and return your mouth to better health.

Dr. Simon Pong’s dental office in Oakville offers a full range of dental implants near you, surgery options, and dental procedures that are tailored to address specific patient problems and reduce the consequences of having missing teeth.

What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is an artificial root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or various other reasons.

Dental implants are typically made of titanium, a biocompatible material that is accepted by the body and serves as a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are a fantastic long-term option. Missing teeth can cause a number of negative consequences, such as:

  • Shifting Teeth – If one of your teeth is missing, the remaining teeth in your jaw will begin to shift into the open space left behind. This could result in crooked or misaligned teeth.
  • Exposed Gums – Missing teeth will also result in an exposed gum area that is susceptible to pain from harder foods during chewing.
  • Bone Loss – Missing teeth can result in the degradation of the jaw bone, causing the facial structure to change over time.
  • Weakening of Oral Structure – Missing teeth can cause an overall weakness of the structure of the mouth, leading to additional tooth loss or injury that could worsen over time.

Thankfully, a dental implant will mitigate these problems over the long-term. Unlike fixed bridges, which may need to be replaced two or three times during a lifetime, dental implants are durable and rarely, if ever, need to be replaced.

The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease.

Excellent dental care! Above & Beyond what you would normally experience. I have had many dentists over my lifetime, I am 62 and I always feel welcomed here, comfortable and the office is so very clean. Also never does Dr. Pong ever do any unnecessary dental work, he truly puts the patients needs above his own and I appreciate that. My dental hygienist Anna knows me on a personal level, she is funny and engaging and I truly feel relaxed and comfortable while she cleans my teeth. Also everyone at this office is very accommodating to every comfort level which tells me they truly care about you. From the moment you are welcomed by Diana at the front desk to the moment you leave, you will be satisfied and happy to return.

I live in Guelph but drive to Oakville for all things dental because the whole team is so amazing. Not only is it super clean and safe but they make it enjoyable and make you feel like you're part of the family. My 2 year old had his first visit a few months ago and he was so excited and had the best time - he even talks about Dr Pong when we brushes his teeth :)Would highly recommend Dr Simon Pong and the entire team!

This place is great, staff is very very welcoming, hard to find that now a days. Dr Pong is professional and his experience shows. If you are looking for a long term family dentist with absolutely great work this is it. Great crew of lovely people overall. I found them through Google and relied on great reviews other folks left.

Wonderful experience with Dr. Pong’s office. Everyone is so caring and professional. All the covid19 measures are perfectly in place. Everyone has a smile on their face and you have the ease of mind that you’re in good hands. I am a recent patient and on my first visit I got my teeth cleaned and the result was far better than any cleaning I’ve done anywhere else. Also, I had a general check up done by Dr. Pong. He went over all the details about the current state of my teeth patiently and told me our plan for fixing some of the issues in the recent future. Definitely recommended.

My children and I recently return to the dentist for our first appointment since the start of the Pandemic. Our experience was excellent from beginning to end. The use of technology to confirm the appointments and to communicate when we arrived was ideal. The office was spotless. I felt like we were entering a surgical suite. Even with all of the precautions, the staff (from front desk to back office) maintained a high level of friendliness. The hygienists did a great job cleaning our teeth. Dr. Pong was professional and knowledgeable as usual. I highly recommend the office of Dr. Pong for all of your dental needs!

This office is beautiful and I felt safe as far as health and safety concerns go. Diana is very helpful at the front desk. My first cleaning here was fantastic. Carrie showed great knowledge and answered all my concerns and questions. I told her I prefer a more vigorous cleaning method/pressure and she delivered very well. I will for sure be telling my friends and co-workers about this dentist office.On a side note, Dr. Pong alleviated my left side tooth pain from another dentist’s work. I’ve been having this pain for months and my previous dentist couldn’t figure it out. All it took was correcting my bite. I am very impressed and thankful to be a new patient here!Highly recommend.

I was a newcomer, with a new dental coverage earned at work. Dr. Pong performed the same root canal for a whole year, at the end assuring me that the permanent fill was in place. Next year, unfortunately all my second shift at work has to be laid off, and I was having no more dental coverage. I was called by dentist's office, insisting to come for a routine check. I explained that I am not able to afford that anymore. After two years, I had to go to U of T Faculty of Dentistry: my root canal fill was not permanent, my jaw was having gangrene, abscessed all teeth, and I had 9 extractions in the same day.

My children love their Hygienist (Kelly) and Dr. Pong - they are friendly and fun and my kids are never scared to sit in the chair (like I was as a child). My daughter has to have an appliance put in and Kelly explained everything to us and showed us pictures of why it was needed and options for us to move forward. My daughter is weirdly excited about it. We love coming to the dentist!! Thank you!

The BEST dental practice team. My family has been coming to Dr. Pong's clinic for about 7 years. No matter when your appointment is (morning or evening) Dr. Pong and his team always greet you with a smile and perform a thorough job. A professional and knowledgeable team. Nothing but good experience with filling, root canal, crown, cleaning and any checkups and follow-ups you name it. Thank you for providing such a reliable service. I would recommend Dr. Pong's clinic to anyone.

I was so scared to extract my wisdom teeth today, but Dr. Pong was so reassuring without actually telling me everything would be okay. His deftness and experience really comforted me and the whole procedure took less than an hour! I was so shocked because we had booked an hour and a half. I guess it was just in case. Super impressed Dr. Pong! Also his staff are always friendly and smiling. This place is great.

Mellisa did a great job cleaning my teeth. I like her professionalism. She has profound knowledge about what she is doing. She gives very useful tips on how to get your teeth thoroughly cleaned, flossed. I booked next appointment with her again. The dental office is clean. They keep the floor dry even right after the heavy snow.

This dentist is simply a level above the rest. I went to two dentists who did not dare to extract my wisdom tooth and referred me to dental surgeon because it's close to a nerve bundle. Dr Poon, my last hope, saw the x-ray and was confident he could do it with aplomb. When I extracted my right wisdom tooth a decade ago, it was a horrible experience. That xxx used brute force the entire time and it took 3 days for the wound to heal. Dr poon approached my extraction like Picasso, taking out the top tooth in 30 seconds! The bottom tooth was more challenging but he never resorts to brute force. He drilled and attacked the tooth from multiple angles to minimize the wound. Even though there was a slight complication, he decided to take a X-ray in the middle of surgery and replanned his line of attack to extract it successfully. That xxx dentist who encountered the same complication just resorted to heavier tools that created such a big wound. I could eat properly after 6 hours after Dr poon but I can't eat until after 3 days with xxx dentist. If you are referred to dental surgeon, I strongly recommed you look for Dr poon and you end up saving $ and waiting less at the end.
