Perhaps you hide your smile because of spaces from missing teeth. Perhaps you have difficulty chewing. Perhaps you have dentures that don’t feel secure.
If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak, and eat once again with comfort and confidence, we have good news for you! The science of dental implantology has progressed remarkably in recent years.
Today’s dental implants are teeth that can look and feel just like your own natural teeth. They can be the next best thing for you if you are missing any of your teeth, providing increased confidence and self-esteem that can change a person’s life.
Implants are ‘titanium roots’ that integrate into the structure of your jawbone. Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. They can also be used to anchor crowns. Bridges or dentures. They look and feel so much like natural teeth that many patients may forget that they’re not!
If the majority of cases in which patients are missing teeth, dental implants can be the conservative treatment of choice. They are often financially conservative as well.
They can prevent the bone loss and gum recession that accompanies bridgework and dentures. What’s more, implants don’t sacrifice the integrity of your adjacent teeth like a bridge might because neighbouring teeth are not altered to support the implant. This is a significant long-term benefit to your oral health.
When teeth are lost, ongoing shrinkage of the jawbone occurs, making the face look older. Dental implants slow this process. Implant recipients return to and maintain a more youthful, natural-looking appearance and smile. Moreover, you can eat most foods with confidence without discomfort because dental implants restore your chewing efficiency.
Simply put, with dental implants, you’ll feel good about yourself again. You’ll feel healthier, look better and speak clearly with complete confidence, enabling you to enjoy life to the fullest.
One of the nicest things about dental implants is that age does not make a difference. If you are in good health, you may enjoy the benefits of implants.
There’s no need to suffer from tooth loss any longer. Your new implants can look, feel and function like natural teeth for years to come.
Dental implant restorations represent a worthwhile personal commitment to comfort, function and quality of life.
Yours for better dental health,
