Implants are Considered the Best Replacement for Natural Teeth
If you are living with damaged or missing teeth, it can have a negative impact on your self-esteem, and can cause long-term complications, such as the loss of other teeth. Lucky for you, The Dentists at Harvest Hills Dental Care in East Gwillimbury, Ontario specializes in the installation of strong, long-lasting dental implants, widely considered the next best thing to natural teeth.
The Strength and Durability of Implant Services
Dental implants get their strength and durability from the same place as your natural teeth: your jaw bone. Through a minimally invasive incision, implants are naturally integrated into jaw, making them comparable to natural teeth for biting, chewing, and speaking. Implants are topped with a tooth-colored crown made from the most modern materials, and can be cared for as easily as your natural teeth, with regular brushing, flossing, and cleaning from our Dentists. If cared for properly, implants can last a lifetime.
What to Expect from an Implant
Our Dentists will do a thorough examination of the area being treated, as well as any surrounding areas that could be impacted. If you are a suitable candidate for an implant, The Dentist will begin that process by numbing your gums and making a small incision in the area of the missing tooth. She’ll use that incision to drill a tiny hole in your jaw bone, where she’ll then place a bio-compatible titanium rod. This rod will serve as the anchor of your implant, firmly grounding it in your jaw, so the tooth is stable and strong. Over the next few months, your jaw will naturally integrate the tiny rod. Once it has healed, you’ll return for impressions. The Dentist will then send these to the lab, where they will fabricate your final crown, a durable, tooth-colored replacement for your natural tooth. You’ll return once more for the installation of the crown, and any final adjustments. After that, your smile will be restored to its full, healthy form.
