Dental Implants in Thornhill
Dental implants are improving the way most people live. They function as a base for an artificial tooth that appears, feels, and also performs just like a natural tooth. Those who have lost teeth can regain the ability to eat and live their normal life. On the cosmetic aspect, no need to mention the value of confidence that a healthy smile can bring for the patients!
Dental implants have become the most reliable and predictable method of replacing a single, multiple or complete set of teeth. Here at Doncaster Dental Studio, treatment plans are generated based on information gained through dental history, intra-oral examination, radiographs and dental CT scans.
What exactly are dental implants?
Dental implants are essentially artificial roots made of titanium metal. Some of the benefits of using titanium are: it is good at resisting corrosion, it is easily accepted by the human body, and it can be tightly integrated into the jaw for a stable connection. The root then holds the replacement tooth (which is carefully created to match your natural teeth) in place for that perfect smile!
Dental implants are a great solution for anyone who needs to replace any number of teeth or doesn't want to use dentures. Dentures are also used to replace missing teeth, but they can require a lot more maintenance than implants and can be more uncomfortable for some people due to slippage (as they are secured with adhesive rather than inserted into the jaw).
What should I think about before getting dental implants?
If you are thinking about dental implants, our Thornhill dental team will need to examine your bone structure and gum condition carefully and review your previous medical and dental records. For those whose jaw bone is not allowing a proper implant insertion, we often advise alternative methods for enhancing results, such as bone grafting.
Most dental implants and bone grafting can be done in the office under local anesthesia, without the need for general anesthesia.
What are the benefits and drawbacks of implants?
Dental implants are a very easy way to attain your dream smile! Some of the benefits include:
- They behave just like natural teeth, which means you won't be able to tell the difference when chewing or talking
- Implants can't get cavities because they are artificial and resistant to the decay that occurs in natural teeth
- They last a lifetime because of the titanium root; this makes them a cost-saving one-time investment
- They keep nearby teeth stable and straight, which prevents crooked teeth from affecting your ability to chew comfortably
There are only a few drawbacks of implants, and many of these can be minimized by having a trusted and skilled team of professionals, such as our Thornhill dental team, complete the work. Getting implants installed can sometimes lead to infection within the gums, but this risk is very low. The recovery time after getting implants can also take up to 6 months, but with proper care and maintenance, it can be even quicker.
Dental Implants Technology at Doncaster Dental Studio
Precise placement and patient safety cannot be assured with the traditional dental implant placement and planning methods.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) helps dentists to analyze the skeletal structure of the patient in a three-dimensional system before implant placement. At Doncaster Dental Studio, we also offer Computer-guided surgery (CAD-CAM) for implant placement. It is a minimally invasive, precise technique that promises to revolutionize the way implant dentistry is done.
