We may recommend you to get dental implants to replace missing teeth. A dental implant procedure is meant to create an artificial root for your replacement tooth.
The implant provides a firm foundation to place the fixed or removable restoration and improve the appearance and function of your teeth. We would be pleased to discuss this option with you further during a consultation at our North York dental office.
How dental implants work
Implants are made of durable materials like titanium. An implant works in the process of restoring your smile by substituting missing teeth.
We insert an implant into your jaw, as it fuses to the jawbone over time. Next, we may affix any of the following:
Patients missing any teeth—whether one, several, or all—would likely benefit from getting dental implants.
The pros and cons of implants
Dental implants are durable, long-lasting, and effective in improving your set of teeth. They may be the answer if you have experienced any of the following:
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Broken tooth
- Knocked out tooth
Patients considering dental implants should take note of a few potential concerns. In addition to experiencing discomfort, there are some risks of inflammation or infection after surgery.
If you have no enough bone where the dental implants are to be secured, you have the possibility of undergoing a bone grafting procedure. The surgery adds up to the time and cost of getting implants.
In general, patients typically feel more confident in their appearance, as well as confident that their restoration is stable and secure.
