Tooth Implant Dentistry With A Cornwall Dentist
Do you have a missing tooth or teeth? Do you find it hard to bite or chew because of the gap in your smile?
There are many ways to fill these gaps and return your mouth to its fully-functioning self. One of the most popular — and most long-lasting — is implant dentistry.
What is Implant Dentistry?
Implant dentistry is a treatment that replaces a missing tooth with a sturdy, custom-crafted synthetic one.
The implant replaces the entire tooth, from root to crown. At our partner specialist’s office, a small, titanium post is placed in the jawbone. The post then fuses with the bone, making it extremely strong and long-lasting.
Once the rod placement has completely healed, our office will top that implant with a customized crown. This completes the synthetic tooth structure.
The Advantages of a Dental Implant
- ROOT REPLACEMENT | A tooth implant replaces an entire missing tooth, down to the root. This prevents the sunken-face look that frequently accompanies missing teeth.
The sinking is due to bone loss. However, when the metal post ossifies with the jawbone, it not only makes the tooth stable, but allows the bone itself to stay healthy and strong.
- DENTAL CROWNS | Here at our Cornwall, ON, office, we top implants with a dental crown. Crowns are customized to fit your mouth so perfectly that it looks, feels, and functions exactly like a natural tooth. We even make sure the dental crown is the same shade as the rest of your teeth.
- IMPLANT DENTURES | We are able to provide strong dentures that are supported by dental implants, rather than traditional adhesives. If you have a number of consecutive missing teeth, this could be the answer for you. We can create a custom set of dentures that will give you a full smile and stay in place without worry.
If you are interested in dental implants, whether singular or in denture form, call us in Cornwall today! We want to partner with you to give you the smile of your dreams!
