Dental Implants

dental implant diagram | dentist toronto onDental implants are by far the best option that modern dentistry offers to replace a missing tooth. Their 95% success rate can be attributed to the fact that they replace both your tooth and your root. This keeps your jawbone healthy and stimulated while protecting the integrity of your healthy remaining teeth.

Your new root is surgically placed into your jawbone, and it easily integrates with your bone while you heal. This procedure isn’t painful as there are no nerves located in your bone. Most patients are pleasantly surprised at how easy and comfortable the procedure is.

Dental Crown in Etobicoke

Your new tooth is a high-quality porcelain crown, which is custom-designed to match your teeth and complete your smile. Your new tooth functions just like your natural tooth, so you're able to chew, eat, talk, and smile just like you used to. Your home care routine won't change either as you'll be able to brush and floss as you normally did. In fact, with excellent home care and regular dental check-ups, your dental implant can potentially last a lifetime.

Dental implants are truly the best investment you can make in your smile if you're missing one or more of your teeth. Contact our Toronto dentist today for more info.

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.
