10017 Dental Implants
If you’d like to improve your smile with a new tooth to replace the one you’ve lost, you’re going to want to take advantage of our 10017 dental implants here at Contemporary Dental Implant Centre. Boasting a variety of benefits over more traditional and less comprehensive restorations like bridges and dentures, you will have a tooth replacement that both looks and feels like a natural tooth. And instead of just restoring the surface part of the tooth, a dental implant also restores the root. This means that your gums and bone tissue will not atrophy and your normal facial contours will be retained.
There are two parts to our 10017 dental implants. A titanium post, the part that replaces your root, is put into your jaw. Over the course of a few months, your jaw bone will grow around it and fuse with it. This creates a very strong and durable bond. Then, our cosmetic dentist will add a tooth-colored porcelain crown to the top and cement it in place. Unlike a fixed bridge, your surrounding teeth will remain unaffected by an implant. A bridge requires that the teeth on either side be drilled down to help anchor the bridge properly. And while dentures need adhesive to hold them in, you won’t have to deal with the mess nor the concerns about reliability. Dentures may slide when you chew or speak, which may have an impact on your confidence. However, because of the way the post of an implant bonds with your jaw bone, you can feel 100% assured that there will be no movement when you least suspect it.
The process of getting our 10017 dental implants begins with an exam and consultation to ensure that you are a good candidate for them. You will need to have gums that are in generally healthy condition and your jaw bone should be sufficiently strong and thick to support the post. If not, a bone grafting procedure can be done to remedy the situation. Other factors, such as being a smoker or having diabetes, may also play into determining if you qualify for them. We will discuss these points with you. Call us today and schedule an appointment.
