Sheridan Dental Centre also specializes in dental implant procedures – an excellent option for those in good oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth.
A dental implant is a man-made titanium replacement for the root of a natural tooth. The implant is inserted into the jaw bone and completed with a crown which is affixed to it. Implants can replace one or more teeth and can also be used to anchor bridges and dentures.
Of course, for most people, implants are a preferred alternative to ordinary bridges and dentures for aesthetics and comfort. One reason is that no adjacent teeth are affected because, unlike a bridge or denture, it does not have to be attached to another tooth.
Once the implant heals, patients say it is just like having their own teeth. It’s not a surprise that implants have quickly become a preferred choice for many patients.
Healthy gums and good jaw bones are important to support an implant. Good oral hygiene and regular dental visits are critical to implant success.
Talk to your Sheridan Dental Centre dentist about whether or not you’re a candidate for dental implants.
