Innovations in dentistry are constantly changing the way we deliver dental care, and though we strive to remain at the forefront of new developments and advancements in technology and technique, many adults still struggle with tooth loss. Tooth loss is actually something that millions of Canadian adults suffer from as a result of periodontal disease, tooth decay, and even injuries.
A long time ago, the only option for correcting the issue of tooth loss was dentures and dental bridges
, but now we can offer dental implants. Dental implants have revolutionized the way we deliver dental care. At Kensington Dental Clinic
, we have successfully placed countless implants in our Edmonton, Alberta area patients.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are permanently fixed roots for missing teeth. They serve as a solid foundation for replacement teeth that can either be permanently fixed as well or of the removable variety.
The replacement teeth are designed to look as natural as your original teeth and will be color-matched to blend in with any remaining teeth.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Having dental implants based has many incredible benefits. Some of them include:
By replacing gaps in your smile with permanent implants, you will feel confident enough to show your teeth off again. The appearance of your smile will improve greatly with dental implants that look completely natural.
Missing teeth and even removable dentures can spur issues with your speech from slurring to mumbling and difficulty enunciating. With dental implants, you will regain the ability to communicate clearly and effectively.
Boosted Oral Health
Dental implants don’t need the structural support of surrounding teeth. Having a dental bridge placed, for example, would require a significant shaving down of the supporting teeth. Your oral health and the integrity of any remaining teeth remain intact with dental implants.
Chewing and breaking down food can become a cumbersome chore with sliding dentures or missing teeth. Dental implants function just like natural teeth do, so eating becomes easier and much more enjoyable.
