Dental Implants in Erin Mills, Oakville & Mississauga
Rejuvenate your smile
When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dental implants are often called the next best thing to natural teeth. They have given many of our patients almost total restoration of their chewing power, along with the ability to enjoy a variety of foods they might otherwise avoid with dentures or bridges.
Providing there is enough healthy gum tissue, and sufficiently dense jaw bone, implants can be placed into the upper or lower jaw, at either the front or the back of your mouth. They serve as anchors onto which new man-made teeth or crowns are permanently attached.
How is this treatment performed?
- The first step in the procedure involves tiny incisions being made in the gums to expose the jawbone. The implants, small titanium posts, are then placed in the bone to serve as artificial roots for the new teeth. The implants have a porous surface so bone tissue can grow into them, and make the bond even stronger.
- Abutments are the second step. These are attached to the implants in the jawbone to hold the new teeth in place. An artificial tooth or crown is then attached to each abutment and the process is complete.
What can you expect from your new, implanted teeth?
Self-confidence when smiling, chewing, talking or eating in public. No more sore spots from dentures. Implants eliminate the need for a removable partial denture or a bridge.
For many patients, dental implants have a high rate of success. This procedure may not only perk up your self image, but your self esteem as well!
