If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you will definitely want to come in to see us at our Contemporary Dental Implant Centre. At our practice we have many dentists, on staff ready to help you with all of your dental needs. Dr. Barry Hertzl Habib is our staff specialist in the area of restoration and the replacement of missing teeth. Dental implants is such a popular teeth replacement method, because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. Today, dental implants are also used to hold dentures securely in place, so that they will not slip or cause any embarrassment while you are eating or chewing. If you are thinking about getting dental implants, we highly recommend that you come in and visit our Stratford dentist regarding this procedure.
A dental implant is actually made up of two parts. First, there is the tiny titanium post which is surgically inserted into the jawbone where you have a missing tooth. One dental implant root is inserted for each dental implant replacement that you will be getting. Then there is the top tooth portion of the implant which is actually a beautiful porcelain crown that is color-matched to the adjacent teeth. The dental implants actually fuse for the jawbone, and create a very strong foundation for your new teeth. Dental implants not only look great and help you eat better, but they will also help to preserve your facial structures since the roots will keep the jawbone from deteriorating. This means that you will be able to retain a more youthful appearance with dental implants. These are just some reasons why our Stratford dentist recommends dental implants in many situations
If you currently wear dentures, and want to eat a steak or corn on the cob for the first time in years, dental implants can actually make this possible. Dental implants provided by our Stratford dentist will also allow you to smile with confidence once again. If you are interested in getting dental implants, you will need to have a dental/radiographic examination and health history. While your dental implants are bonding to your jawbone, you will be able to wear temporary dentures. This healing process can take up to six months. However we know that you will agree that the final results will definitely be worth the wait. If dental implants are well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing, and with periodic teeth cleanings, there is no reason why the dental implants should not last a lifetime.
