Used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth, implants are state of the art technology, utilizing man-made tooth roots to occupy the position your natural teeth once held. Titanium anchors are placed and bond with the bone to replace the root portion of your natural teeth and serve as anchors for crowns, bridges and dentures.
The pain and gum irritation often associated with dentures is eliminated, as is the embarrassment associated with loose or ill-fitting dentures. Designed to last a lifetime, dental implants can greatly improve your appearance and self-confidence. To see if implants are a suitable treatment for you contact our Lumsden office for a comprehensive evaluation.
Why Dental Implants?
Implant-supported restorations replace a tooth from root to crown. Dental implants provide constant stimulation to the jaw, which is essential in maintaining healthy bone density. The artificial roots that implant treatment provides encourages hard tissue growth and halts the resorption process. Resorption occurs when there is no stimulus from the root, which leads to the adjacent bone being used to fill in the void left by the missing tooth. This can cause a person to appear prematurely aged.
It is best to replace a missing tooth as other dental issues can arise from leaving the empty space unaddressed. Complications which may develop from not treating a lost tooth is misalignment, crowding, and crooked teeth.
