Dental implants are designed to permanently replace one or more missing teeth. Dentists install a titanium implant securely in the jaw bone where the roots of a tooth would be. This implant acts as a composite rooting system for your teeth, mounting your new crown to your jaw for exceptional stability, durability, and comfort. The implant coating integrates with the bone for maximum security, ensuring that it won't break away or fall out while eating. From there, a crown can be placed on the implant, mimicking the aesthetic and function of healthy, natural teeth. Unlike dentures, dental implants are designed to be permanent fixtures, working to correct your smile and bite grid.
Dental implants are a great solution for situations where the tooth cannot be reattached. Dental implants act as a permanent alternative that will allow you to eat, smile, and speak with confidence. For complex injuries that have knocked out many teeth side-by-side, implants can be used to mount a dental bridge or dentures to your jaw for maximum security and optimal function.
Our team of dental professionals work to customize dental implants tailored to the unique needs of each individual patient. With up-to-date technology, we will ensure your new teeth are functional, comfortable, and fit right in with the rest of your smile.
Dental implants are the most realistic tooth replacement option available. They are designed to mimic not just your tooth, but the roots that hold them in place. They consist of a threaded fixture surgically implanted in your jawbone to replace the root of your tooth and a replacement tooth that screws into place on the fixture. The tooth replacement is a crown that has the same appearance as your natural teeth. What makes the process truly remarkable is that the posts implanted in your jawbone actually fuse to the bone, like a natural root. This reaction and integration provide you with the most realistic tooth replacement as the tooth looks like a natural tooth, and the fit is exactly like your own root. You can chew and enjoy your tooth thanks to the very stable anchor and fusion of bone to the implant.
Your dental implants function like your natural teeth offering the following benefits:
Comfortable, secure fit just like your own teeth
Can be used as an option to secure crowns or bridges
Preserves your facial bone structure thanks to the posts providing stimulation to the jawbone, which prevents bone deterioration associated with tooth loss and dentures
Improved speech and chewing compared to dentures
Maintain healthy bite
Prevent teeth from shifting into the gap
Best of all, they return your confidence and self-esteem thanks to your new natural smile.
Dental implants utilize crowns and other composite material to create a brand new tooth to replace the one lost in your injury. These crowns offer a natural aesthetic that is virtually impossible to detect without an in-depth inspection, so your new smile will be natural, bright, and beautiful. Not only will this have a positive impact on your self-esteem and confidence, but our dental implants also feel just like natural teeth, so you won't be able to feel the difference. The titanium implant fuses with the bone in your jaw, making the implant feel as natural and permanent as your own teeth. With a dental implant, you'll never have to worry about being embarrassed by your smile.
Dentures can fall out or move around while you eat and speak; as a result, eating meals can become a stressful experience, and your ability to enunciate can be compromised. With the permanent stability of dental implants, you'll never have to worry about these concerns again. Dental issues shouldn't hinder your ability to socialize with your friends and family or eat your favourite foods - your dental implant from Guelph Family Dentistry is guaranteed to be a comfortable and convenient solution.
The biggest benefit of dental implants - besides their natural look and feel - is their durability. Dental implants are fused to your jaw bone, offering permanent security and stability to ensure your newly installed tooth doesn't fall out. These implants are designed to withstand the everyday wear-and-tear that you put your teeth through, so feel free to enjoy your favourite crunchy snack without worrying about damaging your implant.
With proper care and maintenance, including healthy oral hygiene practices, dental implants can last for years. To extend the life if your implant, we advise that you avoid smoking, as it can compromise the integrity of the implant and your oral health. Following a diligent oral hygiene routine, including brushing your teeth, flossing, and using an antibacterial mouthwash will also help preserve its condition. The most common reason for a failed implant is the build-up of bacteria, which can come with a variety of complications.
One of the most inconvenient and impractical things about dentures is the adhesives and bonding agents used to secure your dentures to your gums. These adhesives can't offer the same security that an implant does; bonding agents can also be quite messy and uncomfortable. Dental implants act as a permanent alternative, and the bone fusion procedure makes glues and adhesives a thing of the past.
