Dental implants have been one of the most significant advances in dentistry over the past 25 years and have set a new standard for tooth replacement. As one of the first dentists to have used dental implants in Victoria, Dr. Crapo has had the opportunity to free hundreds of patients from loose-fitting dentures and drastically improve their confidence and quality of life. Dr. Crapo provides a variety of treatment options to suit your individual needs.
What Are Implants?
Implants are titanium posts which extend into the jawbone and act like the root of a tooth. A metal or porcelain cylinder called an abutment is screwed onto the post right above the gums and is used to support tooth replacements such as bridges, dentures, and crowns.
The biggest advantage of getting dental implants in Victoria, BC is how natural they feel in your mouth. Because the artificial teeth are rooted just like natural teeth, they don’t move at all, whereas dentures have a tendency to slip, fall, or move back and forth. The titanium root and porcelain cap will allow you to chew and eat your food as well as if you had natural teeth. Dr. Crapo can even use mini implants to stabilize your dentures.
Schedule an appointment with Dr. Crapo & Associates at the Victoria Implant Centre if you’re considering getting dental implants. During your consultation, we can determine the best type of implants or restorations for you depending on how much bone you have and your general health.

Easy appointment scheduling
When Janet first visited our office, she was not yet a patient of ours. Instead, she came in with her husband Gary as he was having a consultation done. She asked us about some of the problems she was experiencing in her jaw, and we booked her for her own consultation shortly after.
“The staff is so great! They’re so friendly. We live in Port Alberni, and it was worth it to us to drive down to Victoria to visit Dr. Crapo because the staff are so professional. The end result… I’m thrilled! I work full time, and they were very good about scheduling it. I get a lot of compliments on my teeth. My bite is just perfect!”
