Dental implants have a number of advantages over dentures and bridges, which is why they are a more popular choice with our Collingwood & Midland, ON patients.
Put quite simply, dental implants are replacement tooth roots. They are an ideal solution for lost teeth, especially when a full set of dentures is not necessary or desired. Dental implants have a number of advantages over dentures and bridges, which is why they are a more popular choice.
Dental implants are a permanent solution. For most people, they will last their entire life with proper care, as long as you have healthy gums and sufficient bone to hold the dental implants.
Your self-confidence with dental implants will be much higher than with dentures because you will not experience slippage or feel nervous that they will slip at a critical moment. They are as comfortable as your regular teeth, whereas dentures can feel bulky and uncomfortable.
With dental implants, your other teeth are not affected as they are with bridges. It will be far easier to practice good oral health habits with dental implants, as it is easier to get between teeth to clean.
The first step involved with dental implants is being assessed to see if you are a candidate. There are some instances when this treatment plan would not be recommended or advised. You will be asked a number of lifestyle and health questions during an evaluation to be sure that dental implants are right for you.
If you have questions about dental implants and whether they would be a good option for you, we welcome you to make an appointment with us at Georgian Shores Dental Centre. We have two locations to serve you in Collingwood & Midland, ON. Let our smiles take care of your smile!
