The Benefits of Dental Implants

Posted on by admin

Missing teeth can impact our self-confidence, our speech, and our ability to eat certain foods. Missing teeth can also cause structural damage to our mouths, as the teeth on either side of the gap move inward because there is no tooth to stop them. It is important for many reasons to ensure that your mouth has a full set of teeth in order to remain healthy and pain-free.

Dental implants Toronto is a permanent fixture to replace missing teeth when a fixed bridge is not an option. If there are not adjacent teeth to hold a fixed bridge, or you do not want to have a fixed bridge, a dental implant in Toronto is a great option.

In order to get dental implants in Toronto, there needs to be enough bone available for the implant. A CT scan will be done, and the location and size of the implant will be determined based on these scans. There are some cases where the bone mass will not be enough to support an implant. This can be due to lack of bone, or because there are nerves and structures, such as sinuses near the missing tooth.

Dental implants in Toronto are done with a local anesthetic, most patients do not feel any pain during the procedure, but it is normal to experience mild swelling and pain once the freezing wears off.

Dental implants in Toronto are installed by lifting the gum tissue away from the bone, and drilling holes in the bone. The implant is screwed into place, and the gum tissue is stitched back around it. Once the area is healed, which normally is around 4-6 months after the surgery, a crown will be placed on top of the implant.

The process of getting dental implants in Toronto is safe and innovative. The experience is not painful or uncomfortable, however mild soreness and swelling to the area as it heals is a normal part of the healing process. Once the implant is healed, it does not need to be removed. Even if the crown needs to be replaced in the future, the implant itself will likely never need to be removed.

Your smile will look the same.  Dental implants in Toronto are realistic looking, and they will not slip or move like dentures. The crown will be coloured to match your other teeth, no one but you will be able to tell that it is not a real tooth.

There is a learning curve for some people with bridges or dentures. Sore spots can develop, and some people have trouble speaking at first. With dental implants, your speech will not change.

Having a lisp can sometimes be an indicator of a missing tooth.  It is normal to be embarrassed by missing teeth, some people are self-conscious of the change to their smile. This can have a negative impact emotionally and socially and can hold us back. Dental implants in Toronto are realistic, safe, and secure and once healed and in place, will not impact your life.

Another bonus of having dental implants is that, unlike with dentures, you can eat what you want. Like real molars, the dental implants are secured to your jawbone, so they will not slip while eating anything hard or sticky.

Dental implants in Toronto are the closest solution to natural teeth. While it is still important to floss and brush your teeth daily, and to see your dentist for regular appointments, dental implants require little maintenance.

If you have any questions or concerns, speak with your dentist to find out if dental implants Toronto is the right solution for you.
