From One Implant to a Mouthful of Implants, Modern Tooth Replacement Transforms Smiles and Lives
Changing lives one smile at a time is what we at Scott and Derry Dental Care do daily. We can think of a few services that are as life-changing as dental implants. From our office in Milton, Ontario, patients can get a lifetime of healthy function and attractive smiles out of as few as one implant. Or, as few as four implants may be used to support an upper or lower denture among those patients who are missing several or all of their teeth.
Versatile, Premium Tooth Replacement
Dental implants are cylindrical-shaped posts. They are made from medical-grade titanium or ceramics like zirconia. These materials have been specially selected for implantation because they are designed to naturally and safely integrate into surrounding natural tissues. So, when the implant is placed in the jawbone, it will fuse or join the bone around it over the following months.
Once the implant has properly healed or “osseointegrated” (joined to the bone), it can provide a solid foundation to support or retain the dental restoration connected to it. Depending on your needs, we can replace a single tooth with one implant connected to a dental crown. We can also use a few strategically placed implants to support or retain a dental bridge. Or, an upper and/or lower denture may be attached to precisely-positioned implants.
We do not need to apply one implant to support each replacement tooth; implants are placed in a way that makes the most of the jaw bone. That way, when the bridge or denture is attached, the implants can properly hold these restorations in place over the long term. The use of minimal implants helps to bring down the financial barriers associated with dental implants, as the implant itself is the costliest part of treatment. Additionally, this approach minimizes the time you spend in the treatment chair and the demands on your body for healing.
Experience the Many Benefits
It is not an overstatement to say that patients’ lives are transformed with dental implants. They can finally enjoy all their favorite foods in comfort–even sticky, chewy, and hard foods! They can speak freely, confidently, and clearly, without fear that a loose or ill-fitting denture will slip around. Patients also spend more time enjoying their new smiles. Implant-supported crowns, bridges, and dentures require minimal ongoing maintenance. Since implants are rooted in the jaw, the supportive bone stays strong. Dentures continue to fit well without adjustments because the height and strength of the bone, and the shape of the face, are retained.
We could go on and on about how implants have positively impacted our patients’ lives. But we encourage you to benefit from this modern form of tooth replacement.
