Implant Dentistry in Etobicoke
Tooth loss can be a stressful and traumatic experience for many. Gaps in the smile not only affect oral health but comfort, speech, and confidence can all be significantly impacted as well.
While there are several options available to restore incomplete smiles and replace missing teeth, few can match the strength and functionality of dental implants.
At Orchard Dental Care in Etobicoke, Drs. Elizabeth Polanski and Martin Szczutkowski restore patients’ smiles with dental implants that renew the strength of your bite and the confidence that comes with it.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a solution to missing teeth that involve the surgical placement of a biocompatible titanium post directly into the jaw bone. Over the course of the healing period, the implant fuses to the bone in a process known as osseointegration, creating a sturdy base for a variety of prosthetics to be fitted, depending on the patient’s needs.
Once healed and fitted with a beautiful new restoration, the implant restores the full strength of the bite.
The Benefits of Implant-supported Restorations
When a tooth is lost, the root, which is vital to the health of the jaw bone, is lost with it. This leads to several unfortunate issues as a result.
The tooth root stimulates the bone in your jaw through regular chewing and biting. This promotes healthier bone density and prevents the accelerated loss of bone mass, known as resorption. As resorption occurs and bone density decreases, teeth can shift out of place, and the face can take on a prematurely aged appearance.
While other restorative methods can complete a smile, only dental implants can perform the same functions as a natural root, supporting the prosthetic tooth while stimulating the jaw bone and preventing many of the issues associated with tooth loss.
