Why Choose Dental Implants?

It’s time to improve your smile and quality of life.

Losing one or more teeth can be a very unfortunate event. We need our teeth for proper speech and digestion, and not to mention – our teeth are almost always visible when we smile or laugh.

But there’s good news: dental implants, a restorative procedure offered by our experienced Etobicoke dentist, can successfully replace teeth that are lost, and usually lasts a lifetime with proper care.

Dental implants

What exactly are dental implants?

Simply put: dental implants act as artificial tooth roots that are typically composed of titanium. They are implanted into the jawbone to permanently support an artificial replacement tooth that both looks and feels like a natural tooth.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

If your gums and bone are in good condition, you’re most likely a candidate for dental implants.

However, certain health conditions like diabetes might have an impact on the success of the implant bonding with the jawbone. Our dentist will provide an evaluation to determine whether dental implants would be the right choice for you.

Sticking to a tighter budget? There are other restorative treatments such as bridges or dentures that your dentist will be able to talk to you about as well.

A permanent solution requires long-term care

Similar to caring for the natural teeth, a person with dental implants should be cleaning their teeth twice daily for at least two minutes each session using a soft bristled tooth brush, and should also be flossing once daily. They should also be going for regular check-up and cleaning appointments at the dentist’s (at least every 6 months or as required). Certain tools or cleaning techniques may also be recommended by your dentist to be used at home as a part of your oral care routine.
