Dental implants: Lasting tooth replacement in Mississauga
Missing teeth keep you from enjoying the foods you love and those that keep your whole body nourished. They may cause others to have problems understanding what you say. You probably don’t smile as readily because the gaps are noticeable. Eventually bone is lost, giving the face a sunken appearance. The team at Huron Dental Centre in Mississauga suggests dental implants – a lasting tooth replacement option that effectively addresses all these issues.
The root of a natural tooth extends into the jawbone for the stability necessary to withstand bite force. Each time you bite down, the body is signaled to send minerals and nutrients that keep bone robust. When a tooth is missing, that stimulation is gone, and bone begins to diminish, with the body resorbing minerals for use in other areas.
A dental implant, made of a strong, biocompatible material, is shaped something like a small screw. In a brief oral surgery requiring only local numbing, it is precisely placed into bone at the site of a missing tooth. Bone fuses with the implant during osseointegration, allowing it to serve as a replacement root. The implant is topped with a restoration to reinstate function and natural appearance, and to preserve facial bone.
Implants are versatile. A dental implant, finished with a porcelain crown, is used to restore a single missing tooth. Two implants can support a dental bridge, replacing up to three additional missing teeth (a span of up to five). Four (or sometimes more) implants anchor a full denture with great stability.
The success rate for implants is very high, and an implant can last a lifetime with good oral habits.
