Healthy Smile with Dental Implants
The goal of implant dentistry is to assist in restoring the patient’s dental function, speech, comfort and aesthetic appearance. The more teeth a patient is missing, the more challenging the restoration becomes. The proposed implant treatment plan becomes evident after thorough examination, imaging, and consultation with dentist at our Mississauga office.
Dental Implant May Prevent Many Complications
A dental implant beyond its natural tooth-like appearance is a chewing surface, a place holder for teeth and the jaw bone. Missing teeth change the shape and look of your face and lead to bone loss. The gum area becomes more apt to periodontal disease. If only a single tooth is missing, other teeth can shift. The spaces left by missing teeth can diminish your sense of confidence.
Advantages of Single-Tooth Dental Implants vs A Three-Unit Fixed Partial Dentures:
– Decreased risk of decay of adjacent teeth
– Decreased risk of endodontic problems on adjacent teeth
– Improved ability to clean the proximal surfaces
– Decreased cold or contact sensitivity of adjacent teeth
– Decreased risk of adjacent tooth loss
Advantages of Implant-Supported Prostheses
The use of dental implants offers many advantages compared with the use of removable dentures restoration. A primary reason to consider dental implants to replace missing teeth is the maintenance of alveolar bone. When enough implants are inserted the restoration is not only retained but also is completely supported and stabilized off the tissue and bone. The implants also maintain and stimulate the bone and serve as an anchor for the prosthetic device. As a result, dental implants are one of the best preventive maintenance procedures in dentistry.
Dr. Maini has many years of experience in helping his Mississauga patients realize the benefits of replacement teeth. A dental implant is an option that we often recommend after examination. It gives back patient’s confidence and the ability to eat any food. Only you and your dentist will be able to tell the difference between natural teeth and dental implants.
