Dental Implants Mississauga
Would you like to replace your missing teeth?
Dental implants allow patients to regain fully functional and naturally appearing smiles. Tooth loss can be caused by tooth decay, gum disease, or trauma. If one or more of your teeth are missing dental implants are an alternative to dental bridges or dentures to fill in the gaps caused by missing teeth.
Dental implants create a smile that are not only extremely stable like real teeth but they also look and feel like your own teeth. Dental implants also keep the bone stimulated so as not to diminish, causing a 'sunken-in' look.
A dental implant is made from titanium which is very strong and biocompatible material. The implant is surgically placed where you are missing one or more teeth. After a few months of placement, the implant is allowed to heal until it is fully integrated and fused to the jawbone. The implant can then be restored with porcelain crowns, dentures, or bridges.
Dental implants function just like your own teeth. One of the major advantages that dental implants have over the other tooth replacement options is that dental implants stimulate the jawbone to prevent it from diminishing. As a result each tooth implant can withstand all of the bite force of a natural tooth.
Most healthy patients are candidates for dental implants so if you want to replace one or more missing teeth, ask us about implant dentistry. Dr. Lee can tell you more after a screening and evaluation process.
In most cases we can both place and restore your implants. In complicated cases we may work with an oral surgeon to place the implants but Dr. Lee will ALWAYS restore the implants.
