Get Your Lost Smile Back with Dental Implants

Posted on by admin

Gone are the days of dentures, Toronto dental implants give you back your smile. Losing your teeth might be one of the most stressful parts of growing older. Especially if you have done everything right to keep them healthy, Sometimes, people just lose their teeth. In the past, this meant dentures. If you were lucky it was only partial dentures, but some poor souls had to deal with full sets of dentures. These were uncomfortable and could pop out at the most inconvenient times. It caused embarrassment and it hardly meant some had full use of their mouths again. But then Toronto dental implants were perfected and dentures are now an option not in inevitability.

The procedure might seem like it is too good to be true, but with the right periodontist, you will not only have your smile back, but you will be able to eat just as you did before you lost your teeth. We are talking crisp, fresh apples or crusty fresh bread, or even a lovely rare steak. This is because dental implants are permanently inserted into your jaw and they will stay there for as long as you take good care of them. It will be in your best interest to find out if you qualify for implants. The process is quite simple.

It starts with a visit to a qualified Periodontists’ office. They will take scans of your mouth and see what they are dealing with in there. If they see there is enough jaw bone for them to drill into, they will likely tell you that you are good to go for dental implants. Then they will schedule you an appointment for the big day. Since there will be anesthetic involved, it is best to have someone drive you, or at the very least, pick you up from the procedure. On the big day you will have a series of holes drilled into your jaw bone. When the holes are big enough, the dental implants will be screwed into your mouth and then, the gums will be stitched back into place. After a few weeks of swelling and tenderness, you can be on your way to eating apples again.

If you want your smile back the way it was when you were young, call up a place like  Cumberland Periodontics and Implant Surgery in Toronto. Dental Implants are just one of the treatments they have on offer.
