What are the advantages of choosing dental implants to replace a tooth?

Illustration of dental implant and tooth crownWe consider dental implants in Etobicoke, ON the gold standard in tooth replacement options mainly because they replace both your tooth and your root. There is no other replacement choice that can offer the benefit.

Why is it so important to replace a tooth root? Because without it, the bone in your jaw begins to deteriorate. Lack of bone can eliminate support for surrounding teeth and eventually result in more tooth loss. Bone loss also changes the appearance of your face, giving you a sunken appearance that makes you look older than you are.

Importance of Replacing a Missing Tooth

Replacing a tooth is vital for the apparent reasons of restoring function and aesthetics to your smile. But did you know that neighboring teeth begin to shift if you don't replace that missing tooth? This results in bite misalignment, which means teeth are more susceptible to fractures and other damage. A bite that is not aligned correctly could also cause problems for your jaw joint that might mean pain when chewing or even headaches. 

Effective Tooth Replacement with Dental Implants

Tooth implants are also a very reliable treatment procedure, with a 95 percent success rate. They offer exceptional longevity since they can potentially last for a lifetime with excellent home care and routine checkups with your team at Toronto Lakeshore Dental.
