Tooth loss presents concerns that extend far beyond the look of the smile. Of course, the smile can be greatly impacted when teeth are missing. At the same time, the need for tooth replacement also involves the restoration of function and the preservation of oral health as a whole. At Esquire Dental Centres, patients have options for how they can replace missing teeth. We give priority to individual needs, ensuring that the result from treatment is optimal.
What Happens After Tooth Loss?
The loss of a tooth or teeth is just the beginning of the overall problem. Aside from the immediate, noticeable gap in the smile, additional consequences arise after tooth loss, consequences that may not be seen or felt right away.
Tooth loss includes the loss of roots. Roots are what tether teeth to the jawbone. Additionally, roots are the vehicle through which stimulation is transferred from teeth to the bone tissue. This process, we have learned, is necessary to the retention of a healthy jawbone, and healthy facial contours.
How Implants Work
Dental implants are more than tooth replacement, they are root replacement. Using this type of care, we are able to replace one tooth or replace an unstable denture in such a way that oral function is restored to its most natural state. Replacing the root means that the need for chewing function is addressed, as is the need for facial support and stimulation for jawbone retention. No other form of tooth replacement can accomplish all three of these goals.
When no natural teeth remain, the replacement process may seem challenging. Working with an experienced dental team, however, it is entirely possible to achieve excellent results. Dr. Awadalla and his associates have the necessary background to perform the All on 4 dental implants procedure, allowing patients to regain comfort and confidence for their lifetime. No need to wonder “where is this treatment available near me?”. Esquire Dental Centers serve the area of Scarborough, North York, and Pickering with convenient locations.
The All on 4 procedure is straightforward but handled with a great deal of precision. With the strategic placement of implant posts, an upper or lower denture can be fully stabilized. The denture remains a removable appliance, but is snapped onto implants rather than left alone to sit on top of the gums.
