Dental Implants at Centro Dental

If you’re missing a tooth, you’ve probably wondered how your life would change if you had it replaced. Whether you have a single tooth missing or multiple teeth, dental implants are the gold standard in replacement. They look and act just as a natural tooth would, giving you the freedom to eat the foods you want, speak clearly and have great oral health.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

There are other tooth replacement options such as a dental bridge or dentures. Dental implants, however, offer many advantages:

  • A high success rate
  • A natural look and feel
  • A permanent option
  • Biocompatible
  • Easily cared for

You won’t have to worry about taking a dental implant out. It stays in place, feeling secure, and can have a dental crown, bridge or denture attached to it, depending on what your needs are.

Why It’s Necessary to Replace Teeth

You may have tried to cope without replacing your missing teeth. If so, you’ve probably found that you can’t eat certain foods or avoid chewing in the area where the gap exists. Your self-confidence has likely taken a hit with you feeling embarrassed for others to see the space where a tooth is missing.

Your facial profile will also change when a tooth is missing. The bone under where the tooth used to be will shrink, and neighbouring teeth can shift into the gap. Your bite will change, and you may notice cheeks and lips that look as if they’re sagging or sinking.

What to Expect

The first step is to have a consultation with one of our dentists. We’ll discuss all possible options to remedy your situation. Once you have decided on a dental implant, you will go through two separate phases of care. In the first, the dental implant, which is a titanium post, is surgically implanted into your jaw. It takes some time to heal, usually about three months. Then, you can return for a follow-up visit and have a crown, bridge or denture placed on the implant.
