Although research shows that more people are keeping their teeth into their senior years, there is always the chance of losing a tooth or several teeth to injury or disease. If that happens, modern dentistry offers a number of solutions including bridges, dentures and dental implants.
Dental implants are metal posts that are permanently secured in the bones under your gums in the place of the missing tooth. A replacement tooth, known as a “crown”, is attached to the implant resulting in a restoration that looks, feels and performs like your natural tooth.
Many patients, when given the choice, prefer dental implants to dentures or bridges because implants generally look more natural, are more comfortable to wear and unlike dentures, allow the patient to resume eating all of their favourite foods.
Have you been living with spaces from missing teeth, or an uncomfortable denture? Imagine the comfort and confidence that you will feel when your missing teeth are replaced by implants that look and feel like your natural teeth. We have helped many of our patients recapture the natural beauty of their smiles and we would love to do the same for you.
