Orangeville Dental Implants
Credit Creek Dental offers implant dentistry as an alternative treatment choice.
When it seems like all the other options of saving a tooth have been considered and not feasible, or dental strength is compromised, we will offer you a concise and in-depth review outlining what implants mean for your specific case and overall health. From the cost, the procedure itself, to post-operative care of the implants and at home maintenance.
Anyone who is missing one or more of their teeth caused by injury, disease or decay may be a suitable candidate for dental implants. If one, a few or all teeth are missing, dental implants in addition to a crown or bridge can replace the teeth.
Often times, some of our older patients are concerned that their age may play a role in the deciding factor of whether or not they can enjoy the benefits of dental implants. However, when it comes to deciding if the patient is eligible for dental implants, over all health is more of a determining factor than age.
If you’re healthy enough to undergo a procedure like tooth extraction, then you’re more than likely healthy enough to receive dental implants.
A dental implant is a small man-made titanium screw that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. The implant is placed in the bone of the upper or lower jaw and allowed to integrate and become part of the bone and serve as an anchor for the replacement tooth, holding it in place.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or several missing teeth. The replacement, implant-supported teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth. Dental implants are recognized as one of the more popular restorative options with a long clinical history of success.
Dental implants help in the preservation and integrity of the facial structure and reduce the inconvenience and cosmetic disadvantages associated with both tooth and bone loss. If you have a denture or partial, implants can be used to enhance the stability of the dentures and may help improve and restore your confidence.
The friendly staff at our Orangeville dental office can offer more information about the benefits of dental implants and answer any other questions or concerns you may have.
