Two of the most common appliances are implants and dentures

For many years, full or partial dentures were the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. But as technology has advanced, dental implants have become the preferred method of restoring the look and function of natural teeth. The ultimate goal of your Mississauga dentist is to retain as many of those teeth as possible. For comfort and efficiency, dental implants may be used to fill in the gaps.

Dentures

These artificial teeth are affixed to a tray molded to the shape of your mouth. They stay in place with the use of denture adhesive and are removed at night and after meals for cleaning. Because they are not designed to be permanent, they can slip out of place while talking or eating as the adhesive wears thin. Food debris can also become trapped underneath the denture plate and cause irritation or infection. Check out our dentures page for more info!

Implants

As the name implies, these fixtures are implanted in the jawbone. The metal implant takes the place of the root and has a Dental Implantsporcelaincap on top that looks and feels like a natural tooth. Unlike dentures, which require a stringent routine of cleaning, sanitizing and occasional refitting, implants require no additional maintenance beyond that of regular dental hygiene and are designed to last several decades. Their aesthetic quality is generally better than that of dentures as well.

Dentures may still be the best choice for those who have more than a few missing teeth or whose jawbone structure may be too weak to support implants. In some cases, both devices may be utilized. Talk to Brian Kaplansky, your Southern Ontario dentist, to determine which implement is right for you.
