Dental implant restoration helps individuals from Pickering and surrounding areas restore function and health

Dr. Amir Awadalla at Esquire Dental Center, Dentist and Patient

Smiling is something that we do naturally, something that gives us and those around us joy. The experience of smiling can be significantly altered, however, when a tooth or teeth are missing. Gaps in the smile are not only a cosmetic concern. This seeming cosmetic issue can also lead to challenges with eating and speaking comfortably and clearly. Depending on the degree of space created by a missing tooth or teeth, further issues such as misalignment may also occur.

A progressive and often overlooked problem associated with tooth loss is how the absence of teeth affects the bone in the jaw. Bone and teeth are mutually beneficial. The bone in the jaw stabilizes teeth, keeping them upright and functional. It is the transfer of force from teeth, through their roots, and into the bone, however, that keeps bone tissue healthy and strong. When this transfer of force is no longer present, bone tissue breaks down, leading to several aesthetic issues.

Dental implant restoration solves a number of problems

Patients of Esquire Dental Centres in Pickering, North York, and Scarborough receive outstanding care from an experienced team who understands the issues that can come from missing teeth. By replacing the missing root and topping implants with quality restorations, the results of implant tooth replacement, with proper care, can last a lifetime.

In the past, tooth replacement considered the crown of the missing tooth or teeth. The development of dental implants has allowed dentists to also consider the missing root. Unlike dentures and dental bridges, implants do not require continual re-fitting or replacement. Implants also require no special care. Keeping dental implant restorations functional takes standard oral hygiene that includes brushing and flossing, coupled with regular dental visits.

How implants go above and beyond

There are several benefits to tooth replacement with dental implant treatment. Because this treatment addresses the missing root, the stability of the restoration is near 100 percent. When coupled with a dental bridge or dentures, implants facilitate full confidence and comfort by preventing movement within the appliance used to replace missing teeth.

One of the best advantages of implants is the retention of bone tissue that would otherwise be lost over time. Preventing bone loss improves the overall success of tooth replacement, and also keeps the face from “sinking in.”The team at Esquire Dental Centres can help you feel great about your smile. Contact one of our offices to schedule your visit.
