Do you have one or more missing teeth in your mouth? If so, implant dentistry at Creek View Dental in St. Catharines may be your solution to a beautiful new smile.
When is a Dental Implant Needed?
Implant dentistry can be completed in a variety of situations, including when there’s a single missing tooth or when multiple implants are needed to complete bridgework.
Implant dentistry can also be completed to support a denture.
How is a Dental Implant Completed?
Before the implant occurs, our qualified dentists ensure you have adequate anesthesia so that you won’t feel anything during the procedure.
After small incisions are made, a flap of gum will be pulled back so that access to the bone is granted. To accept the implant, the bone is drilled and threaded so that the implant fills it perfectly.
The implant will then be placed into the bone, followed by a healing cap. Stitching will occur in the surrounding area to seal the gums.
Time is given to allow the bone to fuse with the implant, during which you can wear a temporary restoration.
Once the implant and bone have integrated together, the healing cap is taken out. An abutment is placed which sits on top of the gums.
What are the Benefits of Getting Implant Dentistry?
Not only are dental implants more conservative and tooth-saving than traditional bridgework but they also have a more natural look, feel and function. Implants don’t require neighbouring teeth for support and you can floss just like normal.
Implants can actually stop bone loss, too! Sometimes, they can restore jaw health.
How are Implants Better than Dentures?
Unlike dentures, implants do not slip and slide inside your mouth, which can cause facial muscles to become tense. There’s no need to worry about your teeth falling out when you laugh or smile, and no gooey denture adhesives are necessary.
Chewing can be completed more efficiently with implants versus dentures, and there’s less of an impact on daily life.
Implants prevent facial collapse – helping to preserve a youthful appearance. Implant dentistry also offers a long-term solution for missing teeth.
The best part? Implants are so natural looking that nobody will ever know that you have had implant dentistry completed!
