The 411 on Dental Implants

January 15, 2018
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root constructed of titanium metal that is placed into your jaw. Often it’s function is to help support a crown, denture or bridge. Depending on the case, a dental implant is a good solution for a long-term tooth replacement. If you are considering a dental implant option, here’s a few important things you should know. 
  1. A high success rate. Dental implant procedures typically have a high success rate without any major complications. Dentists are trained for this procedure. 
  2. A natural feel. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth. A dentist can customize the look to match your other teeth. Others will never know the difference! 
  3. Overall easier functions. Another great benefit to implants is that they don’t interfere with daily activities. You’ll be able to eat, drink and brush your teeth like normal! 
  4. A good root replacement. A dental implant covers more than just a cosmetic look. Since the implant goes below the jawline, it helps to fix parts of the tooth that cannot be seen. They essentially trick the jaw bone into thinking there is a root there and promote new tissue to grow around the implant, which creates a natural bond between the bone and metal. 
  5. Keep your healthy teeth. Often a solution for a lost tooth is a dental bridge. However, sometimes a bridge can require shaving down surrounding teeth to properly balance the bridge. An implant helps so that a dental bridge can be used along with it. Other teeth do not have to suffer! 
Often a dental implant is a great replacement for a missing tooth. To learn if you are a good candidate or for more questions about dental implant procedures in Toronto, contact us at Toronto Beach Dental!
