If you're missing a single tooth or multiple teeth and think that Dental Implants might be a solution for you, we welcome you to talk with one of our dentists one on one, in an informative consultation at our centre. It is really important to understand your options and it would be a wonderful opportunity to have the various treatment options explained.
SINGLE TOOTH IMPLANT
If you need to replace just one tooth, an implant may be a more effective alternative to traditional bridge work. A standard bridge work requires cutting down adjacent teeth to support the new bridge. The supporting teeth become more susceptible to decay, and may eventually be lost too. A dental implant not only preserves bone and gum tissues but also avoids cutting down neighboring teeth, allowing their longer and healthier life span.
Replacing multiple teeth
When few adjacent teeth are missing or badly damaged, multiple dental implants may be placed to support an implant- supported bridge. This advantageous alternative avoids the hassle involved with the use of partial dentures. It makes the use of metallic clasps unnecessary, resulting in better esthetics, and causes no harm to adjacent teeth. The result is a more convenient solution that enhances quality of life while keeping your teeth healthy.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant replaces a missing natural tooth and its root. They are the most efficient and effective solution for the restoration of missing teeth. When you consider the time spent to adjust dentures or the disadvantages of bridges, you will find that implants provide a predictable, long lasting option when compared to alternative prosthetic solutions. The biggest advantage is that they don't damage adjacent teeth and are a fixed solution as opposed to dentures and bridges.
