Walking into the business meeting, you feel a pit in your stomach. You're giving the presentation today, and you're embarrassed about the appearance of your smile because you're missing a tooth. As a result, you don't feel confident about your smile, and it's always on your mind.

The good news is that a dental implant in Etobicoke might be your solution, and Toronto Lakeshore Dental can help! 

When people come to our Toronto, ON, dental clinic to learn more about dental implants, we tell them that patients also prefer them. Here are four advantages of choosing dental implants to restore your smile.

#1 Dental Implants Offer the Best Form and Function

Nothing beats a dental implant for providing you with the form and function closest to your natural tooth. Dental implants are permanently integrated into the jawbone, so there are no worries about implants moving or slipping. You can enjoy dinner and other social occasions with confidence.

#2 Implants Protect Your Oral Health

A dental implant is the only tooth replacement that restores both your root and your tooth. We do this by placing a biocompatible titanium post into your jawbone. Over time it integrates with your bone, takes the place of your root, and creates a firm foundation for your crown.

Replacing your root is essential because it keeps your bone from dissolving and protects its health. In addition, restoring your tooth keeps your healthy teeth from shifting into the open space and protects you from bite misalignment.

#3 Dental Implants Have No Adjustment Period

Although most denture wearers eventually grow accustomed to speaking and eating with their new hardware, you won't have to experience that with dental implants. Even the surgery for placing the dental implant generally offers a quick recovery. Once we put the dental crown on top of the healed implant, you can chew just as you would have with your natural teeth—or perhaps even better if you had been living with teeth that were not functioning correctly.

#4 Dental Implants Offer Great Longevity

Implants are a very dependable treatment; their success rate is 90 percent. In addition, they provide great longevity as their potential to last a lifetime, with the proper home care and regular dental check-ups, is unsurpassed by any other treatment. This makes them a sound investment in your oral health.
