We are proud to provide a full spectrum of dental care, including the latest in tooth replacement. Tooth loss can have a major impact on the smile, speech, chewing, and on oral health. Consequently, so can the prosthetic that is selected for replacement. In addition to discussing the initial cost of dental implants with patients who visit us in Scarborough, North York, or Pickering, we also talk about the long-term benefits of this level of care.
With dental implants, it is possible to replace just one tooth or to manage oral health and functionality when no natural teeth remain. Implants are not mere tooth replacements, they are tiny posts that are implanted in the jawbone to take the place of missing roots. When these posts have become stabilized by bone in the same manner as natural roots, they can hold a crown or a bridge. The appropriate number of implants can even stabilize a full denture.
Due to the long history of dentures and bridges in the replacement of missing teeth, many people assume such treatments will meet all of their needs for functionality and quality of life. Research has discovered that implant treatment surpasses any other method of tooth replacement. Human ingenuity has tried for centuries to solve the issue of tooth loss, with hundreds of years of trial and error bringing us a solution that can last a lifetime.
The number of advantages of dental implant treatment outweigh the disadvantage of initial cost. By no means is dental implant treatment unaffordable. Though the initial investment is greater, the lifetime of the dental implant exceeds that of bridgework or of dentures, each of which may require frequent adjustments or replacement. Even more appealing than longevity is the fact that implants support oral health, functional chewing, and the regeneration of bone tissue that is necessary for a healthy facial contours.
We are proud of our commitment to excellence and our dedication to ongoing education. Our experienced team has helped numerous patients regain their ability to enjoy meals, conversations, and everyday living by reinstating optimal functionality to their smiles.
