Replace missing teeth with dental implants in Oakville
Missing teeth can create a variety of oral health problems, but they can also have a big impact on your confidence. You may struggle to pronounce certain words or feel embarrassed when you smile. The dentists at Burloak Centre Dentistry offer dental implants to restore full functionality to your teeth right in our office in Oakville.
Dental implants offer the best replacement option
Missing teeth can cause bone loss and shifting teeth, and they can increase your risk for tooth decay, gum disease, TMJ issues, and even sleep apnea. Dental implants are the only restoration that replaces the entire structure of your tooth from root to crown, so you can get full protection for your teeth and bones.
Dental implants allow you to safely chew your food and swallow and prevent uneven wear and tear on your teeth. They also provide stimulation for your jawbone to avoid resorption and allow you to speak without issue. Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care and ensure you a healthy, happy smile for years to come. Dental implants can be used with a dental crown to replace a single tooth, or support a dental bridge, or complete dentures for patients that need multiple teeth replaced.
What to expect from the process
Placing dental implants can differ significantly from one patient to the next. While most patients that are healthy enough for surgery are good candidates for dental implants, they are not suitable for everyone. Your dentist will evaluate your specific condition and determine the best treatment plan to restore your smile. Some patients may require bone or tissue grafts to fully support an implant.
Dental implants are placed directly into your jawbone during oral surgery, typically after the site of tooth loss has had time to heal. Once the implant is in place, it will need some time to fuse with your jawbone before your dentist can place your permeant restoration. Once the implant is fully integrated, your dentist will need to place one or more abutments to support your prosthetic and allow your gums some additional time to heal. Once the final restoration is in place, your dentist will continue to work with you to protect your oral health and prevent future complications.
