posted by sherway dentistry
While there are many options for replacing missing teeth, dental implants are the only treatment option that provides support for your jawbone so you can avoid bone loss and the sunken face associated with missing teeth. The team of dentists at Sherway Dentistry in Etobicoke, ON, offer in-office dental implant procedures using state of the art technology to ensure the best possible outcome.
The benefits of dental implants
Missing teeth can take a toll on your self-confidence and make it difficult to speak clearly. However, they can also affect your health. Without all of your teeth, you may not be able to chew your food effectively, which can cause digestive issues. Your remaining teeth can also begin to shift in your mouth, which can increase your risk for tooth decay and gum disease. The uneven force of your bite may also cause uneven wear on your teeth or cause cracks when you bite. You are also more likely to develop issues with your TMJ, as well as snoring or sleep apnea.
Dental implants will restore full functionality to your mouth and keep your teeth in place. They can be used to support a dental crown, bridge, or even complete dentures to replace a whole arch of teeth. The implant will integrate fully with your bone to provide stimulation and prevent bone loss in your jaw. Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care, making them the most effective replacement option.
Dental Implants are typically placed a few weeks after tooth loss to allow your mouth to heal. Your dentist will numb the treatment area using a local anesthetic to ensure you are comfortable through the procedure and place the implant directly into your jaw bone. In a few months, the implant will fuse to your bone, and once it’s entirely in place, you can return to the office to attach the abutment and take impressions for your final prosthetic. Our team will work with you to prevent further issues with your oral health and ensure a long-lasting, healthy smile.
Most patients who are healthy enough for surgery are good candidates for dental implants. In some cases, you may need a bone or tissue graft to support your implant fully. Your dentist will evaluate your mouth using an intraoral camera and digital X-rays to determine the best treatment course for your specific case.
