As dental implants are just now beginning to overtake the tooth restoration field, we actually get many patients who are unaware of what they actually are. All that they know is that dental implants are quickly beginning to replace other treatment options as the most popular method for restoring missing teeth. The reason for this is the fact that only dental implants can replace missing teeth with beautiful, natural-looking replacement teeth that work and feel just as good as real teeth. We encourage our current and potential Toronto, ON area patients suffering from missing teeth to read on and learn more about what a dental implant actually is and what benefits can come from treatment using them.
Dental implants can actually come in many different forms. In fact, we have seen dental implants that are made up of only two pieces before. However, the most commonly used implants and the ones we utilize here at Christie Park Dental are made up of three pieces. These are:
More and more of our tooth restoration patients have chosen to move forward with the dental implant process because of the many exclusive benefits that come with them. Some of these benefits include:
Dental implants look better than any other teeth restoration treatment. The primary reason for this is because there are no signs giving them away as artificial. A common complaint of other tooth restoration treatments is the fact that they can get loose, causing them to look unnatural when you eat or talk, and giving themselves away to outside observers. Because the implant fixture is fused to your jawbone, your restoration should never move or fall out of place. The crown that tops your implant is also custom-made to match the shape and shade of your natural teeth, ensuring that no one will notice it among your real teeth.
Most tooth restoration treatments are unable to prevent oral health issues such as jawbone deterioration from occurring. The reason for this is the fact that these treatments are unable to provide the exercise needed by your jawbone to maintain itself. However, dental implants are directly connected to your jawbone, just like your natural teeth are. This means that your implants will be able to keep your jawbone in tip-top shape.
Most tooth restoration treatments are unable to provide replacement teeth that feel strong and reliable. These treatments can make it difficult to eat some of your favorite foods. This includes foods that are sticky, chewy, or hard. Because of osseointegration, your dental implants can provide the same bite pressure as your natural teeth because they are supported by the strength of your jawbone. With implants, you will be able to eat all of the same foods you could before you lost your tooth.
As you can see, the structure of dental implants allows them to provide many interesting benefits for our many patients suffering from missing teeth.
