July 25, 2016

Restore your smile with your  implant dentist in TorontoDental implants in Toronto are now the go to solution to permanently replace missing teeth. Dental implants can be used to treat a number of conditions that have resulted in missing teeth, such as tooth loss from a severely cracked tooth or an extraction due to deep decay. No matter the cause of your missing teeth, we are able to restore your smile and oral health using dental implants. As dentists in Toronto who enjoy restoring implants, we can help you to regain a beautiful complete smile.

How Can Dental Implants Help Me?

It’s estimated that 69 percent of Canadians age 35 to 44 have at least one missing tooth, while one in four people over the age of 74 have lost all of their teeth. Tooth loss can be the result of various dental complications, such as advanced gum disease, a severely cracked or decayed teeth, or even from trauma. Whatever the underlying reason for tooth loss, it is important to replace the missing teeth to protect your remaining natural teeth from further damage.

Dental implants provide a natural-looking solution to regain proper oral functions and health. After you’ve lost a tooth, your underlying bone will begin to deteriorate, leading to additional tooth loss. However, dental implants provide your bone with stimulation, preventing the loss of bone. As a result, you’ll have a life-long solution to restore your smile.

What If Dental Implants Aren’t Right for Me?

While dental implants are a great option with a success rate of 95 percent, there are times that implants are not right solution. In order to benefit from dental implants, you must have healthy gums and bone. If you have gum disease or have an increased risk for developing an infection, dental implants aren’t right for you. You must also have enough bone density to support the implant. For those with medical conditions that impact the bone and connective tissues, you may not be a candidate for dental implants.

What are My Options for Tooth Loss?

Dental implants can be used to treat many types of tooth loss. However, if dental implants aren’t right for you, there are alternative options. Traditional dental prosthetics, such as dentures and bridges remain effective. While they may not offer the exact benefits as dental implants, they will still restore oral functions and reduce the progression of additional tooth loss.

If you are missing one or two teeth and aren’t a candidate for dental implants, a bridge may be used to fill the missing space. Then, crowns placed on the adjacent teeth anchor the bridge in place. For those who are missing several teeth or all of their teeth, partial dentures and dentures have been a trusted form of tooth replacement for more than 100 years.
