Dental Implants Mississauga
Missing teeth can cause problems in many ways. Not only it is embarrassing for people to smile, it also causes the bone holding the original tooth to shrink down. Adjacent teeth will tilt into the area of missing tooth and the opposing tooth starts to over erupt in to the empty space.
What is Dental Implant
Dental Implants are a great solution to replace the missing teeth. A superficial titanium root will be surgically placed in the bone. The Implant acts as a root to hold the future crown. After it integrates with the bone, a crown will be placed on top of it. Dental Implants can also be used to give stability and retention to the dentures and make a huge difference in patient’s esthetic and function.
When Dental Implant Can Help
- Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth
- Restore patient’s esthetics
- Provide stability and support to partial or complete dentures
- Restore patient’s function
The Procedure of Dental Implants
At Trillium Smile Dentistry we provide complimentary consultations to patients seeking Dental Implants. After Dr. Tousi explains the procedure and understands your expectations, a complete examination will be scheduled to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy enough for such a procedure. Records including Impressions of your teeth, photos and X-Rays will be taken at this session. You also will be taking X-ray of jaw bone to make sure we choose the best Implant Size and dimensions. Dr. Tousi will work on a treatment plan that best suits your condition and discusses that with you.
On the surgery day, dental implant will be surgically inserted into jaw bone. Gums will be stitched back to cover the Implant to let it bond to the bone and gums. This might take 3-6 months. After the Implant is bonded to your bone, Dr. Tousi will perform a small surgery to uncover the implant and make it ready for the final impression. Then a crown will be custom made for the area and you enjoy the feeling of a tooth with root in your bone.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the jawbone of a patient who is missing one or more teeth. These posts serve as an artificial tooth root, allowing the tooth replacement (such as a crown or a bridge) to be fully secured to your jawbone.
Why Should You Get A Dental Implant?
A dental implant is the highest standard of care for missing teeth. They will last longer, look more natural, and provide greater functionality than other restorative options.
Because the post is anchored directly to the jawbone, implants are able to stimulate the bone beneath them and keep it from degrading further. Filling the space left by your missing tooth with an implant helps keep the teeth around it from drifting into the gap, preventing future alignment issues.
What Does A Dental Implant Procedure Involve?
Placing a dental implant is done in several stages that take place over time. First, a titanium screw is securely inserted into the jawbone. Next, an abutment is attached to that screw to connect it to the material that will replace the actual tooth. Finally, the tooth is replaced using a crown, a denture, or a bridge. The result will replicate a natural tooth’s look and function almost perfectly, especially if done by a skilled oral surgeon.
Who Is A Good Candidate for Dental Implants in Mississauga?
If you would like to get dental implants in Mississauga, you need to have enough healthy bone in your jaw to provide a strong anchor for the screws being placed. You must also have a healthy immune system to help prevent infection during the healing process. If you have suffered enough bone loss to negatively impact your chances of a successful implant procedure, a bone graft may be an option to strengthen the area.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the best option available for replacing a missing tooth. The best dental implants look almost exactly like a real tooth, fitting seamlessly into an attractive smile.
Implants also provide a more permanent tooth replacement solution than many other restorations and can last for many years if taken care of. They allow you to chew with more force than is possible with dentures or a bridge, so you can continue to enjoy your favourite foods without worry.
How Much Do Dental Implants in Mississauga Cost?
The cost of dental implants in Mississauga varies depending on many factors, including the type of implant you are receiving, the material used for the tooth replacement, where the implant is being placed in your mouth, and what insurance coverage you have.
