Dental Implants in Ancaster
Providing a base for fixed, replacement teeth, dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are another and popular solution such as bridges, crowns, and dentures. Dental implants are quickly becoming the new standard in replacing teeth because they feel, function, and fit like natural teeth.
Dr. Beshoy at Ancaster Dental Centre use a medical-grade titanium implant fixture that feels comfortable and completely secure because it fuses to the living bone cells of the jaw over time. Unlike dentures, the durable and strong anchor for new teeth causes no movement or slippage. You can smile openly freely without worry with no problems eating and no need to regularly repair dental implants.
There are three parts to dental implants:
- The implant: A screw that serves as your new tooth’s root and permanently attaches to your jaw.
- The abutment: A connector that holds and supports a single tooth or set of teeth. It’s permanent, but can be removed by your dentist.
- The prosthetic tooth or crown: The part of the tooth you can see, usually made of porcelain or zirconium for good looks and durability.
Dental implants can be used for replacing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a full upper and/or lower set of teeth.
If you can’t find a solution to your dental issues that makes you happy, the right choice for you could be dental implants. When considering implants, many people see the health benefits as an essential factor, beyond the aesthetic appeal.
For one thing, implants can help prevent bone loss in the jaw. Once a tooth is lost, the natural erosion of the bone begins. The loss of other teeth and a “sunken” look in the facial features may happen if nothing gets done. Dental implants will keep the jawbone from deteriorating and help maintain your facial structure looking more youthful, boosting not only your oral health but your confidence.
Your overall health can be improved with dental implants, as you have fully functioning, strong teeth to eat healthy foods once again.
Dental implants are one of the best investments for long-term tooth replacement, as they can last a lifetime if properly cared for.
Compared to dentures or fixed bridgework, the more common advantages of dental implants include no need for adhesives or special cleaners, healthy adjacent teeth filed down, and most importantly, they don’t move or slip. Dental implants have an over 95% long-term success rate over any other tooth restoration procedure or method.
