Dental Implants Surgery
A dental implant is a titanium post that functions as the root of a tooth would. It is surgically implanted into the patient’s jawbone beneath the gum line and a replacement tooth is placed on top. Dental implants can be used as replacements for a single tooth, or multiple implants can be installed to securely support dentures.
The benefits of dental implants are considerable and include:
- Improved appearance, self-esteem, speech, comfort, and oral health
- Easier eating
- Preventing bone decay
- Greater functionality, durability, and convenience
Patients who are ideal candidates for dental implants are in need of tooth replacement for one or multiple teeth, have good overall oral health, and have adequate jawbone density to support an implant (or implants).
We will take the time to discuss your treatment plan, using imaging to help explain some of the choices that were made. The goal during treatment planning is always to develop a strategy that aligns with your needs, expectations, and budget to create healthy, functional, and beautiful replacement teeth that can potentially last for a lifetime.
Wisdom Tooth Removal (Including Impacted)
If you’re experiencing pain in the back of your mouth and are in your late teens or early twenties, you are probably a good candidate for wisdom tooth surgery.
During your consultation, our doctors will complete an extensive examination, including a panoramic radiograph and CBCT 3D, to get an in-depth view of your mouth. If we determine that your third molars should be removed, we will provide you with a personalized care plan that maps out what you can expect throughout the treatment cycle.
Kelowna Dental Centre is conveniently located just 10 minutes away from UBC Okanagan, making it easy for students to get the care they need.

Sedation Dentistry For Children
Is your child nervous to visit the dentist? Do they have trouble following directions? Are they facing extensive dental treatment? If so, we can offer your child laughing gas, oral conscious sedation, or even IV sedation based on their needs and health history.
Many children benefit from sedation dentistry because it helps make their experience in the dental chair calmer and more productive. It also helps small children form positive views of dentists at a young age, helping pave the way for healthy oral habits for life.
Intravenous (IV) Sedation
Intravenous (IV) sedation, also known as sleep dentistry, is offered to patients with extreme dental anxiety, special healthcare needs, or those set to undergo oral surgery or extended treatment. Our doctors channel anti-anxiety medication safely and efficiently into the body for optimal relaxation with IV sedation. Our doctors will adjust your medication during the procedure to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible. Please note: if you opt for IV sedation, a family member, friend, or caretaker must drive you to and from your appointment.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Kelowna Dental Centre offers oral conscious sedation to help patients who suffer from moderate dental anxiety. This form of sedation is taken as a pill pre-procedure and can be a mild or moderate sedative, depending on your needs. With mild sedation, you can expect to feel drowsy. You may fall into a light sleep during treatment. Please note: if you opt for oral conscious sedation, a family member, friend, or caretaker must drive you to and from your appointment.
Laughing gas, or inhalation sedation, is a form of light sedation typically suited for younger patients or those with mild dental anxiety. Laughing gas is a colorless, odor-free gas administered through a comfortable breathing mask. Our doctors can control the amount of gas you breathe in, adding or reducing your dosage as needed. With laughing gas sedation, you can expect to be fully awake and feeling like yourself within minutes of completing the procedure.
To deliver a customized care experience, our doctors utilize high-def microscopes to assess your areas of need and perform precise, efficient, and tailored restorative procedures.
Implant-Retained & Removable Dentures
When you choose Kelowna Dental Centre, you’ll never need to go through an arduous referral process as a patient dealing with the difficulties and emotions of missing or decayed teeth. Our licensed denturist, Jason Cunningham, delivers fair denture consultations, custom-crafted dentures, and comprehensive repairs.
We currently offer the following removable and fixed dentures systems:
- Immediate Dentures
- Complete Dentures
- Partial Dentures
- Implant-Retained Dentures
If you plan on getting dentures, rest assured that everything you need—from fitting to repairs—is accessible at Kelowna Dental Centre. Coordinate your appointments for enhanced convenience and reduced treatment time.
Implant-supported dentures or snap-on dentures are an excellent alternative to traditional dentures, which rely on suction to stay in place. Implant-supported dentures are affixed to carefully spaced implants, offering superior stability and comfort. They also deter bone loss and help maintain facial aesthetic integrity.
Other benefits include:
- Enhanced functionality when chewing, allowing for a better diet and improved health
- Improved speech and confidence
- Increased comfort with reduced gum tissue irritation
- Avoids the cost and inconvenience of denture adhesives
- The related procedure is minimally invasive
Whether you have received your dentures at Kelowna Dental Centre or another dental practice, we are always here to make the necessary adjustments to promote a good, healthy fit!
Don’t suffer through the pain, discomfort, and distress that comes with missing teeth. Dental implants are the only permanent tooth replacement option available today.
These restorations utilize a titanium or ceramic post implanted in the jawbone to anchor a custom single-tooth or multi-tooth restoration. Dr. Webster may attach single crowns, bridges, and full arch dentures (implant-supported dentures) to create natural-looking, long-lasting results that feel and function like real teeth.
The benefits of dental implants include:
- Improved Appearance
- Improved Speech
- Improved Comfort
- Easier Mealtimes
- Improved Self-Esteem
- Improved Oral Health
We offer the following dental implant systems at our clinic:
- Single Dental Implants
- All-on-4® Dental Implants
- Hybrid Dental Implants
- Hybridge Dental Implants
- Mini Implants
- Implant-Retained Dentures
Dental crowns, also known as tooth caps and tooth crowns, are designed to replace the external portion of the tooth following a procedure, decay, or accident. Most patients are excellent candidates for tooth crowns.
Our Kelowna dentists may recommend a dental crown to repair the following conditions:
- A broken or cracked tooth
- A damaged or loose crown
- A weak tooth
- Dental bridges that need anchoring
- Misshapen or discoloured tooth (cosmetic purposes)
- After root canal therapy
- To top off a dental implant
We also offer traditional dental crowns using the following materials:
If you are missing several teeth, you are likely a great candidate for a traditional dental bridge or an implant-supported bridge. Our doctors use dental microscopes to craft natural-looking, durable dental bridges designed to emulate a healthy smile.
Kelowna Dental Centre proudly offers the following dental bridge systems:
When your tooth bridge is correctly cared for, and if you maintain good oral hygiene and attend scheduled dental appointments, it may last for 20 or more years. If you experience a shift in fit or comfort, come into Kelowna Dental Centre right away so we can make any necessary adjustments.
Root Canal Therapy
It may sound daunting, but the truth is, root canal therapy doesn’t cause pain; it relieves it.
With modern technologies and anesthetics, today’s root canal treatments are much like having a filling placed. Kelowna Dental Centre takes great pride in our state-of-the-art equipment and technology, including an endodontic microscope, and CBCT systems. This allows our doctors to perform root canals in-house, sparing you of the referral process and keeping costs down.
A successful root canal treatment lets you keep the tooth rather than having to pull it out. Keeping your tooth helps prevent your other teeth from drifting out of line and causing jaw problems. Saving a natural tooth is always the best option and bypasses the need to replace it with an artificial one.
Are you in pain when you open and close your mouth? Are you having difficulties chewing, speaking, or swallowing? This is caused by a TMJ disorder, which is a group of conditions that cause pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint and the muscles that control jaw movement.
Possible causes of TMJ disorders are:
- Tooth and jaw alignment
- Stress and teeth grinding
A TMJ disorder can feel paralyzing, but we are here to diagnose you accurately before getting into treatment. We offer a step-by-step plan and tailored solutions that fit you and your lifestyle so that you can live pain-free.
Our people embody the patient-centric culture and our commitment to being excellent stewards of your health that are key to Kelowna Dental Centre’s code of conduct.
We understand that dentistry can be emotional, and preventative barriers may impede individuals from getting the care they need – that’s precisely why Kelowna Dental Centre was founded first on genuine, caring people. Our team shares a deep passion for helping others while delivering excellence in innovative dental care.
