Dental implants are considered the “gold standard” of solutions for treating and replacing missing teeth. Placing implants is a surgical procedure, and therefore best accomplished by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon with in-depth training and education in surgery and implant dentistry. Our oral surgeons have placed thousands of dental implants during their training and in-practice experience, ranging from simple replacement of one tooth to complex reconstructions restoring an entire smile.
Dental implant procedures are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Our goal for a person who has lost teeth or is missing them is to restore their ability to eat anything and enhance their smile and confidence.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jawbone to replace the roots of missing teeth. The bone fuses or integrates with the engineered titanium post, creating a reliable “platform” or foundation for artificial teeth. After the dental implant heals, your dentist will fabricate a crown that is placed on top of the implant to replace the damaged or missing tooth.
Some benefits of affordable implants near me include:
- Natural look, feel, and function
- Long-term tooth replacement
- Preserve of jawbone health and facial structure
- Prevent bone deterioration
- No clicking, slipping, or rocking
- Does not require denture adhesive
- Can eat favorite foods without worry
- Smile, laugh, and speak with renewed confidence
- Better quality of living
The Dental Implant Procedure
For most patients, the dental implant procedure involves one surgical placement. First, implants are placed within your jawbone in a quick and comfortable procedure. For the first three to six months following surgery, the implants gradually fuse with the jawbone and gain stability. Temporary dentures may be worn, and a normal diet can be maintained while the implant is healing. Once the implant has integrated, you will return to your dentists’ office for placement of crowns, bridges, or dentures on top of the implant.
For some select patients, a second procedure is necessary to uncover the dental implant and place a special attachment before receiving your crown. The crown is the only visible part, as the implant is hidden beneath the gums. Most patients experience minimal disruption in their daily life after the dental implant procedure has been completed.
The best dental implants in Brampton can be performed in our office under local anesthesia, IV sedation, or general anesthesia. Trust our experienced team when you need affordable implants near me.

For some patients, it is necessary to remove all remaining teeth in their upper and lower jaw. This could be due to fractures, trauma, pain, or infection. In the past, patients had to settle for using complete upper and lower dentures, which are removable pieces of plastic that can restore your missing teeth. With advances in technology, dental implants are now able to restore all of your missing teeth permanently in one day. This is done by extracting any remaining teeth, and placing dental implants in the upper and lower jaws. These implants are then loaded with a brand new set of teeth that are permanent (you do not need to take them out during the day or at night before bed).
These surgeries are extremely complex and require detailed, exhaustive planning. You can trust your oral and maxillofacial surgeon at Four Corners Oral Surgery to work with your individual case to determine the optimal, most affordable solution for you. For patients that do not have adequate bone, Dr. Mascarenhas can discuss the option of bone grafting procedures, or alternatives including angled implants or zygomatic implants.
Dr. Mascarenhas has advanced training in these complex implant procedures and as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, he is uniquely qualified to perform these procedures under general anesthesia for your comfort.

Recently went here for wisdom teeth removal. Got all 4 taken out and was finished in under an hour. Great friendly team and fast amazing service. Barely any pain after the surgery too. Would highly recommend for anyone planning to get their wisdom teeth removed.

I do not react well with needles and have fainted at every vaccine or injection I’ve received, but this was my first time not fainting. Every single person I interacted with during my wisdom removal was incredible. They made me feel safe and reassured that everything would be fine and it was. Quick, easy, and truly painless. I don’t leave reviews often, but this place really blew me away. I live far away, but would absolutely make the drive to come here every time. I wish I could give more than 5 stars.

Dr. Mascarenhas and his team were very helpful during the entire process of my upper jaw surgery. He explained everything in detail and made sure to answer any and all questions I had before and after surgery and during all my follow-up appointments. His handouts he would give me for the next stage of recovery were very useful and simple to understand. I would highly recommend Dr. Mascarenhas and his team!

Dr. Mascarenhas and his team our amazing. My 16 year old daughter had her wisdom teeth out and she was very nervous about this procedure. They were all so compassionate and caring and made my daughter feel so comfortable. The nurses bed side manner was beyond impressive. Also my daughters was not scheduled to have her surgery for another two weeks and b/c she was in so much pain they squeezed her in. Thank you to all the staff.

I had double jaw surgery with Dr Wendall Mascarenhas around 4 weeks ago and I couldn’t be happier with the results! The whole process of getting the surgery booked was fairly straightforward and the surgery went really smoothly with no complications. Dr. Mascarenhas is an incredibly thorough and smart surgeon, and I felt safe undergoing the procedure with him. His reports were extremely detailed, and he made sure to give me a full explanation of what I should expect post op. If you’re thinking about getting DJS, I couldn’t recommend this clinic enough.

“My son had complex oral surgery and Dr. Omura’s job was outstanding, in fact my son was eating solids in 3 days.
The staff is extremely friendly, polite, caring and very helpful.
The assistant & nurse were great, compassionate and helped me get my 6’2 son into my car without hesitation.
Their Covid-19 safety protocols are impeccable. They take your temperature, questionnaire, give you a new mask. I felt so safe and at peace. Thank you for everything.”

“Dr. Mascarenhas performed a wisdom teeth extraction on all four of my wisdom teeth. The entire experience from start to finish to finish was nothing shy of wonderful. As a very nervous patient, all staff were kind, patient, and understanding. I would highly recommend this office to any patient looking for an oral surgeon.”

“I came in for a consult and had my x-rays taken as part of it. I was very impressed with the technology and equipment Four Corners had. The assistant pulled up my x-rays immediately on the screen and Dr. Mascarenhas was able to walk me through my treatment plan right away. I am looking forward to my procedure next month, as the staff and surgeon were very welcoming and professional.”
- – Jeremy
“I came in to see Dr. Mascarenhas for 2 dental extractions. I was so pleased with how the procedure went and that my recovery was fast and seamless – I went back to work the next day. This was an exceptional experience for me as I had gotten another tooth extracted at a different office about 3 years ago, and it hurt me for 3-4 months after; Dr. Mascarenhas’ work was flawless! I’m very thankful for the staff’s experience and professionalism.”
