Implants Can Make Your Smile Dreams A Reality
Many people consider dental implants the best option for replacing missing teeth. They are great for many patients because they are sturdy, aesthetically pleasing, and as close as you can get to the real thing. At CHV Dental, we’ve transformed several smiles with this sound restorative dental treatment.
A few statistics about implants & tooth loss
- In 2005, about 90,000 implant procedures were performed in Canada.
- 6.4% of the population is missing all their teeth.
- 5.5% of people have untreated tooth decay and cavities.
How dental implants work
A dental implant consists of three parts: the titanium post, abutment, and crown. Implants can be used to address the loss of one or several teeth. It’s a solution that can last many years, allowing you to perform all the daily functions you want with your mouth, such as eating and smiling. A fantastic bonus is that they can’t develop cavities! And… unlike fixed bridges or removable dentures, implants won’t affect nearby healthy teeth or cause jawbone loss.
Just about anyone can get a dental implant these days. Often, people with dentures prefer to swap them out for this more permanent solution as it stays securely in place.
How implants work with bridges to close gaps
If you’re missing several teeth, implants can be used to support a bridge. Unlike conventional bridges, an implant-supported bridge doesn’t require support from other teeth. If you’re missing all your teeth, an implant-supported denture can replace the missing teeth and some of the tooth roots.
