Dental Implants Restoration North York, Toronto
When patients want to replace missing teeth, they have a number of options such as dentures, dental bridges, and implants restoration. Well, dentures are a common choice, one issue with them is that they often become loose or slip out since they’re not secured in place. Bridges are another attractive option since they are supported by adjacent teeth. However, this often means having to remove enamel from the surrounding teeth to ensure a stable fit. In addition, because dentures and bridges sit on top of your teeth and gum tissues, neither helps to prevent bone demineralization that occurs once a tooth is removed or falls out. Both of these tooth replacement options also need to be eventually replaced so only present a short to medium term solution for your smile.
So, is there an attractive, long-term tooth replacement option that helps to prevent bone demineralization? Yes, there is! Implants restoration involves placing artificial teeth to titanium implants embedded into the jaw bone tissues underneath your gumline. As the surrounding tissues gradually heal, the implant is held firmly in place. Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants replace the missing tooth’s root, which helps to preserve the surrounding bone tissues and structure.
Implants are extremely durable and long lasting. Once the implant fuses with the bone tissues, it will last for many years. In fact, with proper care, such as consistent brushing and flossing, the implant can last a lifetime.
Because the implant is held in place by bone tissue, people with sufficient amounts of jaw bone tissues are the most suitable candidates for implants restoration. If you are suffering from other dental problems, such as tooth decay or gum disease, you should have these resolved first before considering tooth replacement surgery.

An artificial tooth can then be attached to the implant. The end result is a strong, secure tooth that is virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
