Dental implants are a great option for our patients who have lost teeth due to injury or disease. Our professionals at St. Joseph Orleans Dental Centre use implants to help them regain their smile.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Getting dental implants is an ideal option for patients in good general health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, dental injury, or some other reason.
What is the difference between a dental implant and a dental bridge?
A dental implant does not rely on neighbouring support from other teeth. A dental bridge requires the missing tooth be adhered to the surrounding teeth. Your dentist will evaluate your situation and work with you to determine which is the best solution for you.
Implant restoration involves surgically anchoring implants into the jawbone below the gum line, then attaching an artificial tooth to those implants. After the implant has been placed, your gum and bone will continue to grow around it, ensuring that the implant stays firmly in place.
Who needs Implant Restoration?
Implant restorations will be recommended to patients who have lost teeth due to accident, injury, or issues with hygiene. Our dentists offer implant services customized to your specific needs.
What are some benefits of Implant Restoration?
Implants can work for many people as they can fit into your mouth similar to natural teeth. This allows you to avoid the slipping caused by ill-fitting dentures. They should not adversely affect the teeth around them, and can support your smile.
