Etobicoke, ON and Mississauga area patients who are faced with tooth loss may be undecided about the many options of repair available to them. Patients can address the loss of one or more teeth with several solutions. The three primary choices for tooth replacement include dentures, dental implants, and bridges. The highest quality treatment suggested by a dentist for patients who are appropriate candidates is dental implants.
Dental implants are the gold standard in restorative dentistry. Drs. Shefali Tuli and Mislav Pavelic of sherway dentistry encourage patients to consider them. These permanent, long-lasting titanium posts are surgically placed into the jawbone and can offer a method of replacement unsurpassed by bridges or dentures. Dentures are removable and full dentures may require denture adhesive to hold them in place. Additionally, some patients do not like the idea of altering surrounding, healthy teeth for the placement of a dental bridge. This is where dental implants excel. They provide the optimal solution. Furthermore, dental implants maintain bone structure, which may otherwise erode after tooth loss occurs.
Dental implants do require candidates to have sufficient bone in the jaw for successful replacement. Bone ensures that the dental implant is stable. When a dental implant is placed, it stimulates bone growth through osseointegration, which gives the implant strength and durability. This process can take several weeks, but provides a lifetime of beautiful tooth replacement! Patients may find that the cost of dental implants upfront are more than the alternatives, but the value it provides over the course of time is unbeatable.
