Tooth Implant Dentistry With A Cornwall Dentist
Do you have a missing tooth or missing teeth? Are you finding it hard to chew and eat because you have a gap in your smile? Are you reluctant to go to activities or that important job interview because you are concerned or embarrassed about the gaps in your smile?
There is a rather revolutionary dental treatment — implant dentistry.
What is Implant Dentistry?
Implant dentistry is a treatment that takes dental implants, small metal posts, and inserts them into the jawbone. The post then fuses with the jawbone, usually taking 3-6 months. This piece of the implant dentistry procedure is performed by a nearby dentist who partners with us so we can give you implant dentistry treatments that can give you a new smile!
What are the advantages of getting a tooth implant or Dental Implants?
- TOOTH ROOT REPLACEMENT | A tooth implant basically replaces a tooth root and tooth. This is possible because the tooth implant restores the root when the metal posts ossifies with the jawbone. Because dental implants or a singular tooth implant replaces tooth roots, your face will not get that sunken look and can remain symmetrical because your face is “full”, containing tooth roots where needed. When tooth roots are gone (as with a missing tooth), your gums begin to recede, causing your face to sink or look unsymmetrical.
- DENTAL CROWNS | Here at our Cornwall ON office, we restore a tooth implant or dental implants. Restoring a tooth implant or dental implants mean we top the tooth implant with a dental crown. The dental crown is customized to fit on top of the ossified metal post. The post plus the dental crown create a “new tooth,” one that looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth. We make sure the dental crown is the same shade as your natural tooth, so laugh and smile all you want. No one will know this is not a tooth you were born with!
- IMPLANT DENTURES | Using implant dentistry to treat our patients from the Long Sault, Ingleside and Cornwall ON area, we are able to provide strong dentures that are supported by the dental implants. This means that if you have a number of teeth missing in a row, we can create a custom set of dentures and attach them to customized dental crowns. This will give you a full smile with dentures that stay in place without messy dental adhesive.
