Permanent Dental Implants for Missing Teeth
Tooth loss can affect anyone at any age, and there’s a multitude of reasons for it. You could suffer trauma from an accident or injury, or your teeth could decay past the point of repair. When you’ve lost one tooth, several teeth, or your whole mouthful of pearly whites, you need to restore them with a reliable solution. North Oakville Dental serves patients of all ages suffering tooth loss in Oakville, ON. Dental implants are a permanent option we offer that give you the look, feel, and function of your natural teeth. Other benefits include longevity, keeping the surrounding tissue healthy, and preventing teeth from moving out of place.
Types of Implant Solutions We Offer
The process for placing dental implants is safe and very predictable for dental specialists like us to perform. We start by implanting the titanium rods through the gums and into the jawbone. During the healing period, the bone will grow around and fuse to the implants for a secure hold. After you’ve healed, we attach the crowns or fixed bridge to fully restore your smile. North Oakville Dental offers different options for your dental implants, depending on how many teeth you’re missing.
These Options Include:
Dental Implants for a Single Tooth
If you’re missing a single tooth and have damaged roots, a bridge might cause damage to the teeth surrounding the gap. A dental implant is an excellent alternative to a bridge because it replaces the tooth without negatively affecting the adjacent teeth. In fact, an implant will help them stay in place and preserve the bone tissue in your jawbone. It looks, feels, and functions the same as a natural tooth, and the crown blends in perfectly with the surrounding teeth.
Dental Implants for Full-Arch Replacement
Until recently, dentures were the only option for people who lost several or all of their natural teeth. You couldn’t permanently fix these dentures in your mouth, either. Now, we can replace your missing teeth by placing dental implants in your jaw to hold a fixed bridge. The result is a comfortable and secure fit that gives you full functionality of your teeth again. The fixed bridges also look natural so that you can smile with confidence.
Find Out if You’re a Good Candidate
Not everyone is eligible to receive dental implants. One of the stipulations is you need sufficient tissue in your jawbone to support them. If you’ve lost bone tissue, a bone graft might be the answer to restoring your eligibility. Give us a call today to schedule an appointment with one of our dentists. We’ll evaluate your oral health and determine whether you’re a good candidate for dental implants. If you are, our doctors will discuss your options and create a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
