Replacing missing teeth with dental implants in Milton, ON
When teeth are missing, it is critical that patients speak to a dentist to learn more about how teeth can be replaced. Replacing missing teeth is a personal choice, and selection should be made after a patient has been educated regarding all their options. Dental implants are a popular choice for patients who visit Dr. Jameela Jifri at Scott and Derry Dental Care in Milton, ON and continue to be the solution many patients decide to use.
What are dental implants?
Dr. Jameela Jifri describes dental implants as tooth root replacements made of a metal called titanium. Titanium is often used in the medical industry for replacing parts of the body, including joints and bones. It is because the material is biocompatible with the body. During the placement of a dental implant, a titanium post that appears as a small hardware screw is placed into the bone of the jaw. It is then restored using a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture. The option chosen depends heavily on the patient’s unique dental situation and the number of teeth they need to replace.
Why choose dental implants for replacing missing teeth?
