Learn more about dental implants from your Mississauga dentists!

Dental implants are becoming an increasingly popular way to replace missing teeth. Dr. Brian Kaplansky and Dr. Parneety Randhawa, dental implantsyour Mississauga, ON dentists, explain a few situations in which you may benefit from this tooth replacement option.

You lost a tooth

Whether you lost a tooth due to an injury or tooth decay, a dental implant offers an excellent way to replace your missing tooth. The implant, which looks like a small screw, is placed in your jawbone and replaces the roots of your tooth. Dental implants are made of titanium, a biocompatible metal that bonds to the bone in a few months. After bonding occurs, your dentist attaches a lifelike crown to the top of the implant to complete the process.

You're looking for an alternative to traditional dentures

Dental implants are also an option if you've lost all of your upper or lower teeth. Unlike traditional full dentures that simply rest on top of your gums, implant-supported versions are attached to four or more implants per arch. In addition to anchoring your dentures, your implants also stimulate your jawbone and help prevent or reduce bone loss that frequently occurs after you lose a tooth.

You want a long-lasting option

You're probably also considering bridges or dentures to replace your missing tooth or teeth. Although these restoration options can effectively replace take the place of lost teeth, they usually only have a lifespan of 5 to 15 years. Depending on your age when you receive your dentures or bridges, you may need to replace them at least several times. If you choose dental implants, you'll probably never need to replace your implant.

You care about comfort

Because dental implants are firmly rooted in your mouth, they feel like your missing tooth. You'll never have to worry that your tooth replacement will slip or irritate your gums. Chewing is also easier with implants.
