Dentist in Stratford
At Contemporary Dental Implant Centre, our dentist in Stratford specializes in implants and crowns so that you can have a fully working and healthy set of teeth again. Many people who are missing teeth don’t realize that they have options to replace those teeth with the use of implant technology. We place both traditional implants and implant crowns, and there is a slight difference between these two types of dental processes.
Conventional implants are titanium posts surgically implanted into the jawbone. Implants are used to replace teeth and/or hold dentures in place. Titanium is strong and durable, and implants last a lifetime and never need a root canal or filling. The root of a titanium post is stronger than a natural tooth’s root. Implant crowns are actually attached to the traditional implant after it is placed in the jawbone. The implant crown completes the implant procedure by adhering this artificial tooth on top of it. We also offer patients mini dental implants, which are done with a one part screw that has a rubber attachment to fit around a mini implant ball. Our dentist in Stratford can explain both of these types of implant procedures during your visit.
Implants help patients have a full set of teeth again and go back to eating what they once were able to without any problem. Missing teeth can cause jawbone deterioration and change the look of the facial structure, so having implants put in to the missing areas can help fill in the face and deter the jawbone from being reabsorbed. Implants are done in a two step procedure, where we first install the implant before the healing period begins, and a second where the crown is attached. Call our dentist in Stratford today to find out more about how implants can help fill out your mouth and create a fuller and brighter looking smile for you today.
