Dental Implants in Toronto, Ontario
Missing teeth create a number of complications for people; these can include pain while biting or chewing, they can cause strain in the jaw muscles, cause headaches, and can also affect speech. Gaps between teeth can also reduce the strength of your bite – However, such problems can be eliminated by opting to have us surgically replace your tooth, using dental implants.
A dental implant consists of a titanium anchor, embedded deep into the jaw bone, replacing the missing tooth’s roots. Once the bio-compatible titanium material gradually fuses with the bone tissue, a dental crown is attached to the top of implant (months after the initial titanium implant is surgically screwed into the jawbone.) After the implant is surgically placed, gum and bone tissues finish growing back-in, around it, holding the implant firmly in place.
Even though the dental implant is an artificial tooth, it will appear and function almost exactly as your old, natural, tooth would. The major advantage of a dental implant restoration, versus dental bridges or dentures, is that it does not need any support from surrounding teeth, and does not need to be removed to eat food or for tooth-brushing. Further, dental implants are so strong that they are only removable by a dentist. This renders them much more effective than dentures and bridges in terms of day-to-day usability and convenience.
