Are you considering dental implants in Saskatoon or Watrous? In the event that a tooth needs to be removed, it can cause concerns such as:
- Function – decreased ability to chew properly
- Cosmetic concerns
- Increased chewing forces on remaining dentition which is a concern for tooth fracture
- Bone resorption
- Shifting of the adjacent or opposing dentition
Options to replace missing teeth include dental bridges, partial dentures, or dental implants.
Dental implant treatment involves implanting a titanium post in the underlying jaw bone. Titanium is biocompatible and will integrate with your bone to act as the replacement for the roots of the missing teeth.
After the dental implant has successfully integrated with the surrounding bone, your dentist will attach a dental crown. The crown is made out of strong ceramic material and mimics the look of a natural tooth.
Although dental implants cannot decay, they can still get gum disease. That is why it is very important to return for good oral hygiene and in-office maintenance and monitoring.
