Everything you need to know about dental implants for replacing missing teeth

Teeth Implants Dentist in Oakville ON Area
Replacing missing teeth can be one way of achieving a beautiful and functional smile. It is best that patients replace teeth as soon as they are lost or extracted to protect the remaining smile and ensure the maintenance of natural bone. One of the more popular ways to replace missing teeth is by using dental implants, a reliable and lasting solution for patients in and around Oakville, Ontario. Dr. Shefali Tuli and her team at Burloak Centre Dentistry can educate you more on dental implants.

What are dental implants?

Dr. Tuli describes dental implants as a "root-like" structure inserted into the jawbone to replace the missing tooth's root. Once it is securely in place, it can be used to support a dental crown, bridge, or even dentures. Dental implants are fabricated from a metal called titanium and are extremely durable and long-lasting. They become part of you as they fuse with your natural bone tissue over time.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

  • Longevity. One reason patients choose dental implants is that they can last a lifetime with proper maintenance. While more expensive upfront than traditional bridges or dentures, they are a wise investment when considering their longevity.
  • Appearance. Dental implants look and feel just like your own teeth and can be customized to match the colour of your natural teeth.
  • Preserving bone structure. Unlike dentures designed to sit on top of the gums, dental implants are inserted directly into the jawbone, helping maintain its natural form and preventing further deterioration over time.
  • Functionality. Dental implants look, feel, and function like regular teeth because they replace both the root and crown, allowing you to eat a variety of foods that may have been difficult or impossible with dentures or bridges.

Dr. Tuli can provide more information on the benefits of dental implants so patients can make an informed and educated decision about what is suitable for their unique needs.

What is the process of obtaining dental implants?

First, patients consult with their dentist at Burloak Centre Dentistry to determine if they are a good candidate for treatment. Then, oral surgery is scheduled. The dental implant is carefully inserted into the patient's jawbone during this procedure. Once placed, the site must heal before further steps can be taken. After a period of healing, usually around four to six months, patients return to the office so that Dr. Tuli and her team can attach an abutment, otherwise known as a "fitting," to the implant to support the crown or denture.

Are dental implants right for me?

For patients considering replacing their missing teeth, Dr. Tuli will carefully evaluate your needs and provide an appropriate treatment plan that might include using dental implants. Generally speaking, you might be a good candidate if you have healthy gums and enough bone structure in your jaw.
