Why Missing Teeth Should Be Replaced
Missing teeth can take the joy out of the little things of everyday life, including speaking, smiling or eating your favorite foods.
A full set of adult teeth is meant to last a lifetime — but this is not always the case. Despite practicing good oral hygiene, teeth may be lost due to a number of reasons, including bacterial infections, gum disease, untreated tooth decay, accidents or trauma. A missing tooth can also be unsightly and uncomfortable, in addition to causing a host of oral health – and overall health problems.
For instance, lost teeth can result in bone loss, uneven bite force and sagging facial structure. In addition, missing teeth can cause gums to recede and jaws to shrink, which in turn weakens the teeth on either side of the gap. These teeth then become more susceptible to tooth decay and plaque buildup.
Neighboring teeth can also lean into the empty space, resulting in overcrowded or crooked teeth. Receding gums create pockets where bacteria grow and result in the spread of gum disease.
One of the greatest developments in dental history is implants. This form of treatment, designed for the replacement of missing teeth, is both predictable and incredibly successful at achieving its intended purpose. For patients of Central Dental Group who are missing teeth, dental implant treatment can be a life-changing experience.
We ensure the comfort of our patients at every step of the implant procedure and use the latest sedation dentistry techniques to minimize any discomfort.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are very small posts made of titanium. In a simple procedure performed with local anesthesia in our office, a post or posts are inserted into the jawbone. Over the course of a few months, bone tissue will fuse around posts to form a solid foundation, onto which the chosen restoration will be affixed. Implants can hold crowns, a bridge or they may be used to stabilize a full denture.
Patients of Central Dental Group can feel confident choosing dental implant treatment for their long-term needs, knowing that our dentists have the precise skill to achieve excellent results. Most patients feel minimal, if any discomfort during and after their implant procedure, finding it possible to resume normal activities the day after treatment.
During the initial stage of the dental implant consultation, we gather information about your medical and overall health in order to get a clear idea of your health status. Our patient-friendly staff then explores treatment options and formulates a plan that addresses your health, as well as budgetary considerations.
Restorations for implants are designed and placed by Dr. Soll and Dr. Cox, who has decades of experience performing dental implants in Toronto. By restoring the smile with dental implants, one can feel confident in his or her smile.
The materials from which implants and restorations are made are also resistant to corrosion and very natural-looking. The process through which implants are solidified into the jawbone creates a feeling so natural that patients often forget they have had missing teeth replaced.
Why Get Dental Implants At Central Dental Group Toronto?
There are several reasons for choosing dental implants. Aside from their natural look and feel, implants can last a lifetime with good oral care. Nothing special, just routine hygiene and professional care to keep remaining teeth and gums in optimal condition.
Other benefits of dental implants include:
- They look, feel and function just like natural teeth
- You can speak, laugh, chew and eat without worrying about your dental restorations slipping or working loose
- Unlike partials or dentures, implants have the potential to reverse jawbone deterioration that follows tooth loss
Just like natural teeth, implants rely on disease-free gums for long-term support. With our team, patients receive personalized, ongoing dental care designed around their specific needs.
Types of Dental Implant Options
Dental implants can be of two types:
Endosteal implants are the most commonly used and they consist of titanium screws that are surgically inserted into the jawbone.
Subperiosteal implants are inserted under the gums but above the jawbone. This may be recommended for patients who do not wish to undergo a bone grafting procedure to augment bone density in the jaw.
Central Dental Group uses state-of-the-art, high-precision 3D imaging and implant planning software that makes dental implant procedures much faster and highly successful. Our dentists use the latest tools to analyze the anatomy of your jaw and determine the correct implant sites prior to surgery. Our personalized and modern approach helps save time and money and accelerates recovery time after the procedure.
Are You Eligible for Dental Implants in Toronto?
If you’re considering getting dental implants, the first step involves determining your candidacy. Our team of experts will evaluate your oral and overall health before recommending solutions. While most patients are eligible for implants, your candidacy may be compromised if you suffer from some pre-existing health conditions (such as heart disease, for example).
Similarly, patients who suffer from jaw atrophy may be ineligible for implants. However, a bone grafting, ridge expansion or sinus lifts may restore your candidacy for dental implants. Our dentist in Toronto is the best person to consult to determine eligibility and assess your oral cavity for problems.
