At Belleville Dental Care and Tweed Dental Care we may recommend a dental implant to replace a missing tooth and help restore to form and function of your smile.
What is a dental Implant?
A dental implant is a titanium post that is positioned in your jawbone to mimic the form and function of your natural tooth root. Once healed and incorporated with your bone tissue, this post firmly supports a tooth restoration, which is most often a porcelain crown.
Why should I consider a dental implant?
A gap in your smile, as the result of a missing tooth, can lead to several issues including additional tooth loss, gum disease or an improper bite. A missing tooth can also cause the remaining teeth to shift. A dental implant supporting a replacement tooth, can fill the space in your smile and help prevent future tooth shifting or loss.
Are dental implants right for me?
Whether you are missing a single tooth, multiple teeth or all your teeth, dental implants may be an option for you. If you are missing all of your teeth, we may recommend implant supported dentures.
