One common issue that older adults suffer from is tooth loss. Missing teeth can be problematic as it makes it difficult to speak and chew properly. This is because the gaps can weaken nearby teeth and cause shifting to occur which can weaken your overall bite. In addition, missing teeth can ruin the aesthetics of your smile.

There are are a number of different ways to replace missing teeth, including removable dentures, bridges, and implants. Although dentures are popular, one drawback with them is that they can slip out when speaking or chewing. In addition, they don’t stop bone demineralization that occurs following a tooth extraction. Bridges offer more stability since they are anchored in place by your remaining teeth. However, to place a bridge, your anchoring teeth will have to shaven down, which some people may not want to do.

To address these issues, implant restoration may be appropriate for you which involves placing dental implants in place of missing teeth. Dental implants offer a permanent and stable way to restoring your smile.

These are titanium steel screws that embedded into your jawbone. Since they are placed into your teeth's roots, they preserve your jaw's natural structure and offer superior durability. Unlike dental bridges, implants don't require the support of neighboring teeth and are completely independent. An attractive natural-looking artificial tooth is attached to the implant once the tissues have fused with it.

People with ample amounts of healthy tissue to support the implant are the best candidates for implant restoration. However, if you don't have enough jaw bone tissue, bone grafting is still possible to provide additional tissue to your jawbone.

To see if you're a good candidate for dental implants, schedule an appointment with Lord Dufferin Dental Centre today.
