What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are quickly becoming the most popular tooth replacement choice for people who are missing one or more teeth. Implants are designed to take the place of the natural tooth’s roots and create a secure foundation for a dental restoration. They’re the only option that’s attached directly to the jawbone, providing benefits that no other tooth loss solution can provide.
We encourage you to read on to learn more about our dental implant solutions and how you’ll benefit.
What Dental Implants Can Do For You
Dental implants offer many benefits to both your appearance and quality of life. They’re versatile and can be used to stabilize nearly any type of tooth restoration–from single crowns to full dentures.
Many benefits of dental implants are due to the process of osseointegration, in which the jawbone fuses to the implant fixture. As an artificial tooth root, the implant not only serves as a strong foundation for your restoration, it also helps stimulate the growth of the jawbone, keeping it strong and healthy. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement solution to protect the health of the jawbone.
Since they’re attached directly to the jawbone, unlike traditional replacement methods, dental implants won’t slip out of place when speaking and chewing. They can also be brushed and flossed like normal. Essentially, they look, feel, and function just like natural teeth.
Our Dental Implant Solutions
At Parkview Dental, Dr. Munro offers a variety of dental implant treatments to fit your needs, whether you’re missing one tooth, several teeth, or a full arch.
Single Tooth Replacement
Dr. Munro can replace a single missing tooth from root to crown with a dental implant. The implant fixture takes the place of the missing tooth’s roots where it forms a strong bond with the jawbone. This results in a solid foundation for your replacement tooth: a custom-designed porcelain crown that will blend in with the rest of your smile.
Multiple Tooth Replacement
If you have several missing teeth spread throughout your smile, Dr. Munro will replace each with a dental implant and crown. However, if you’re missing two or more adjacent teeth, they’re best replaced with a multi-tooth bridge or partial denture. Dr. Munro will design this partial tooth replacement to perfectly fit the gap and secure it in place with one or more dental implants.
Full Arch Replacement
Removable dentures used to be the only option for replacing a full arch of missing teeth. Now, Dr. Munro can create a special denture that is designed to be secured to several dental implants. Implant-supported dentures won’t slip out of place while chewing and speaking, never need to be removed, and can be cleaned just like normal teeth.
