Are you facing tooth extraction? Or maybe you are already living with missing teeth due to injury or disease? In either situation, it’s important to seek out dental restoration in order to restore oral health. Dental Implants are one solution that have risen in popularity due to their strength, function, and longevity. With dental implants, patients in East Gwillimbury, and Newmarket, ON can smile, speak, and eat with confidence.
You may hear someone refer to dental implants as the gold standard for tooth replacement, and for good reason. Whereas many dental restorations rest on top of the gumline, dental implants replace the missing tooth so that they can hold the final dental restoration such as a dental crown or dentures firmly in place. The implant itself resembles a small screw and is placed into the bone through an incision in the gum tissue. Once in place, the bone in that area will fuse around the implant over a series of months through a process known as integration. This bond is the strong foundation for your replacement tooth or teeth. After the healing process, we attach an abutment to the implant which acts as the connector to the final replacement tooth.
The true benefits of dental implants extend way beyond improving the appearance of your smile. Because of the strong bond between the implant and jawbone, the restoration prevents bone deterioration which is a common occurrence in tooth loss. Without stimulation from a tooth root or implant, the bone structure will begin to breakdown, causing remaining teeth to become loose and shift out of place. It can also lead to sunken facial contours which will prematurely age your appearance.
