Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth, treat loose dentures, and to be anchors for supporting fixed dental bridges. They can give stability to a set of false teeth as well as provide the supporting foundation for replacement teeth in a completely toothless jaw. Dental implants are extremely versatile and have proven themselves to be an excellent alternative to natural teeth when situations and circumstances occur that threaten your ability to eat, chew, or even smile.
If you have lost one or more teeth you may feel too self-conscious to talk or smile. In addition, tooth loss can create biting irregularities that have a deleterious effect on your eating ability that can lead to additional health problems such as malnutrition.
You can overcome these problems when your Ajax dentist replaces missing tooth roots with dental implants that give you the stability and strength needed to eat the food you love without struggling with your ability to chew. Additionally, the implants maintain and stimulate jawbone, and that prevents bone loss which enhances your ability to maintain your facial features.
If you want to know if dental implants are appropriate for you, you can schedule a free consultation with a dentist or oral surgeon such as Dr. Nalini Sutharsan.As part of your consultation a dental professional will examine your gums and teeth as well as evaluate your bone quantity and density. You may even be given x-rays and computer tomography (CT) scans to determine whether there is enough bone structure in which to place implants, as well as decide precisely where your implant should go.
After your exam, your dental professional will advise you on the most appropriate dental implant treatment options available based on the health of your oral tissues, as well as on your personal oral hygiene habits and your willingness to commit to following aftercare instructions. If you have insufficient gum tissue or bone mass you may require soft tissue or bone grafts and/or small diameter implants, which are also known as mini implants.
Dental care is extremely important because your teeth affect how confident you feel personally and professionally about yourself. For example, you may avoid smiling because you are embarrassed about gaps from missing teeth. Or your dentures are loose in your mouth they will fall out while chewing. In other words, missing one or more teeth can have a negative effect on how you speak, smile, and eat.
But the good news is that dental implants are made to feel and look no different from your own. In fact, they feel so real and so natural looking you may forget you ever lost any teeth. When dental implants are placed by a properly trained dental professional, and maintained it diligently by the patient, they can last a lifetime. To get evaluated for an implant, Ajax dentists in the offices of Dr Nalini Sutharsan will see to your every need.
