Dental implants are the closest restoration available to replace your natural teeth. Enjoy being able to eat your favourite steak and corn on the cob without any hassle of moving teeth or discomfort. While the healing process takes a few months, the wait is worth it. Once your dental implant has osseointegrated and become one within your jawbone, you will be able to return to eating your favourite foods.
Regardless, if you have suffered an unfortunate accident, sport or work related injury or have cracked, damaged or missing teeth, dental implants can revolutionize your smile. Single dental implants can replace an unsightly gap and blend in to the rest of your teeth, making them impossible to determine. Adult teeth are designed to last a lifetime with the proper oral hygiene and regular checkups. However, sometimes, issues arise and there is a change in that plan. Enjoy the ability to brush and floss as per usual once your new dental implant has fully healed to maintain your oral health.
To secure a few missing or damaged teeth, Dr. Sandy Crocker or Dr. Peter Mitchell may recommend a dental implant bridge. Protecting the integrity of your smile and surrounding dentition is vital. Traditional bridges utilize metal bands to secure the apparatus to neighbouring teeth. This can create a plethora of hiding places for biofilm and plaque bacteria to convene, often leading to damage of perfectly healthy teeth. Avoid having to compromise other teeth in your mouth to secure your dental bridge any longer thanks to the option a dental implant bridge offers instead. No bands are required and the dental implant bridge is secured via dental implant therapy.
