Do you have missing teeth? One of the best tooth replacement treatments in dentistry is the modern dental implant. At Oasispark Dental, our experienced dentists have advanced training in the latest implant techniques.
Dental implants (or as some people refer to them, “tooth implants,”) are biocompatible tooth replacements that mimic the shape of natural tooth roots. When set into the bone, the titanium surface stimulates a process that causes them to permanently integrate with your jaw. As a result, your new dental implants are capable of supporting a variety of fixed restorations (like crowns, bridges, or dentures.)
If you’re unsure whether dental implants are best for your smile, here are five reasons to consider investing in them:
1. They’re Non-invasive to Your Smile
Most tooth replacements impact the neighboring teeth in some way. That’s not the case with dental implants. Newmarket patients who choose to have an implant placed in an open area can feel confident knowing that the adjacent teeth will be left intact. There’s no need to reshape or alter otherwise healthy tooth structure.
2. Implants are Stronger than Natural Teeth
Dental implants are extremely durable. In fact, they can support more weight than a healthy tooth. That’s why titanium (the material used in implants) is also used for surgical joint replacement in other areas of the body.
If you’re replacing multiple teeth, you do not necessarily need an implant in the location of each tooth that’s missing. Rather, our Newmarket dentists can place a pair or set of implants to distribute the weight equally as they support a multi-tooth restoration. In fact, it’s possible to restore an entire arch with as few as four implants.
3. Modern Implant Designs Can Last for Life
An implant has the highest success rate of any modern day dental procedure. Today, most dentists consider them to be the gold standard of tooth replacement. It’s thought by most dental experts that in the majority of cases, dental implants can (and should) last for the rest of a person’s life.
Investing in implants gives you the confidence of knowing you’ve selected the longest lasting tooth replacement treatment in dentistry. Instead of having to replace them every several years, you care for and maintain implants as if they’re a permanent part of your forever smile.
4. You Can Replace One or All of Your Teeth
With an individual implant, one of our Newmarket dentists will restore it with a porcelain crown. As you smile, the new “tooth” blends in with the others, making it appear as if you never had a missing one to begin with.
In instances where 3-4 teeth in a row or missing, a pair of implants can support a multi-tooth dental bridge. Implant supported bridges can be longer than conventional bridges, making them an ideal alternative to partial dentures.
But what about full arch smile rehabilitation? With 4-6 implants, it’s possible to anchor or permanently support a hybrid prosthesis that spans the width of your upper or lower jaw. Depending on the one you qualify for or are looking to get, there are removable (anchored) dentures that snap into place or streamlined appliances that are more like an extended dental bridge (which are permanently attached.)
5. It’s More Comfortable Than You Thought
We strive to incorporate the best technology in our dental office. Implant cases will typically utilize 3D imaging and scanning, so that we can virtually plan your procedure well in advance. This advanced mapping process helps to streamline your implant procedure so that it’s minimally invasive and efficient as possible.
Did you know that to get dental implants, only local anesthetic is needed? Most people assume the process to be quite involved or more like a surgery, but it can be quite straightforward. To help you relax as much as possible, we also offer gentle nitrous oxide sedation (laughing gas).
6. Implants are Easy to Care For
With dental implants, all you need to do is brush and floss them like natural teeth. An implant can’t get cavities, but if you don’t clean well around it, the gums can become infected. Simply brush the gumlines twice per day and be sure to floss daily (and schedule regular checkups twice per year!)
