There are lots of different reasons why people lose teeth. Sometimes tooth loss occurs because of trauma, such as a sporting accident, or is due to dental disease, for example, a severe tooth infection or gum disease. Whatever the reason, replacing teeth is important, and while dentures and tooth-supported bridges remain popular solutions, dental implants are often the best option.
The Next Best Thing to Real Teeth
Because of the way they are designed, dental implants are the next best thing to having your natural teeth restored. They closely replicate the feel and function of real teeth. Listed below are just a few reasons why it’s worth considering dental implants to replace missing teeth in Whitby.
Natural Looking and Comfortable
Dental implants are specifically designed to function like natural teeth, so they feel entirely comfortable, and you can forget you ever lost teeth. We take enormous care when designing dental implant teeth to make sure they look like your real teeth, choosing the exact shade, so they blend in beautifully with existing teeth. We make sure you can bite and chew food comfortably, so you can enjoy meals with others and can smile confidently.
Reliable and Long-Lasting
Treatment is a long-lasting solution provided you care for your dental implants correctly. It’s quite easy to look after dental implants in Oshawa, and we will show you how to clean around them to keep them free from infection and disease, and of course, it’s important to come and visit us regularly for checkups and professional dental cleanings.
High Success Rate
We consider every patient very carefully before recommending dental implant treatment, taking into account your dental health and your medical history. Your overall health can make a huge difference to the long-term outcome of treatment, and especially if you avoid harmful habits like smoking. Usually, dental implants have a success rate of 95% or even higher because we will only suggest dental implants if we think they have an excellent chance of long-term success.
Because dental implants are anchored in the jawbone, they help restore your biting strength. People with fixed implant teeth can eat almost anything they like, while people with implant dentures will find their biting strength is far greater, enabling them to eat a wider choice of foods. When you can eat properly, digestion improves because you can chew food thoroughly before swallowing, and you can make healthier food choices, ensuring you get all the nutrients needed for good overall health.
Preserving Your Jawbone
One of the most important reasons for choosing dental implants is the protective effect on your jawbone. Usually, when you lose natural teeth, your jawbone gradually resorbs, but dental implants help to preserve the jawbone, significantly reducing bone resorption.
Improved Facial Appearance
People who are missing multiple teeth will often find their facial features collapse inwards. The facial muscles in your cheeks and lips rely on teeth for support, and bone resorption can result in loss of jawbone height. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants ensures the correct facial dimensions are restored, providing the proper support for facial muscles. It’s an effect that is especially noticeable for people who may have struggled with loose and uncomfortable dentures for years and who have suffered significant jawbone loss.
Computer Planned and Placed
Here at Margolian Dentistry, we use the very latest digital technology to plan and place dental implants in Ajax. Every treatment is computer planned before the surgery to place dental implants. Once we are entirely happy with the plan, it is replicated in the form of a surgical stent, a specialized template that is used during surgery, ensuring our dentists place your dental implants in the preplanned positions. We do everything possible to ensure a good long-term outcome for dental implant treatment.
