Why dental implants are a popular tooth replacement option

When teeth are missing or extracted, the bone that once supported them starts to shrink. This is because the bone no longer has stimulation from the tooth root. The loss of bone causes the face to collapse and can make a person look much older than they actually are. Dental implants stimulate the bone, which helps preserve the jawbone and prevent further deterioration. At Humber Valley Dental of Bolton, Ontario, we routinely work with patients experiencing tooth loss and help them determine if dental implants are appropriate for their needs.

What are dental implants?

Drs. Geeta Gautham, David Ma, and Ammar Taimish of Humber Valley Dental describe the dental implant as a tooth root replacement. Made of titanium, this small post is placed into the bone of the natural jaw and restored on the top with a crown, bridge, or denture. The implant is an alternative to other solutions such as full dentures, partial dentures, and dental bridges–other tooth replacement solutions available at our practice.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants are beneficial for people who have difficulty chewing or speaking. When teeth are missing, it is often challenging to chew correctly. This can lead to digestive problems and malnutrition. Additionally, gaps in teeth can cause a person’s speech to be unclear. Dental implants can help improve both chewing and speaking ability. At the same time, the dental implant maintains the natural bone, ensuring a youthful appearance to the jaw and chin area. Patients can even use dental implants to hold full dentures in place, called “all-on-4” implants or full mouth dental implants, to replace all the teeth without worrying about natural bone loss. Overall, dental implants provide many benefits for both oral health and quality of life.

Dental Implants

Many Happy Faces

Dental implants are titanium roots, that are replaced with in the jawbone to resemble a tooth or group of teeth. A screw is inserted through the gums and into the jawbone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the screw to become the new tooth or teeth. They can be used to support dental prosthesis including crowns, dentures, and bridges. Today’s treatments are so natural looking, no one will know you had surgery. There’s approximately a 95% success rate for all implants. With modern advances in dentistry, some implants can be restored immediately with life like all porcelain crowns. For more details ask your dentist.
