Replace missing teeth with dental implants
A dental implant is a titanium screw that looks much like a tooth root that’s surgically placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth, bridge or denture.
Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to gum disease, an injury, or another reason.
What can dental implants do?
- Replace one or more teeth without affecting the neighbouring teeth
- Support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removable partial denture
- Provide support for a denture, making it more secure and comfortable, while ensuring the bone under the denture is not lost over time.
Why choose implants?
While high-tech in nature, dental implants can be more effective than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. Dental implants also act to preserve your natural jaw bone, as opposed to bridges and dentures, which are associated with bone loss.
Maintaining bone for comfortable denture wear throughout your lifetime is an important point we often forget. Whenever a tooth is lost, the bone in that area continues to be lost, with more bone loss each successive year. An implant can help to stop the progression of jawbone loss.
Dental implants look and feel great
Your confidence about your teeth affects how you feel about yourself, both personally and professionally. Perhaps you hide your smile because of spaces from missing teeth. Or maybe your dentures don’t feel secure. Perhaps you have difficulty chewing.
If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak, and eat again with comfort and confidence, dental implants could be the tooth replacement solution you have been seeking. In fact, dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling that you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
