Groupe Dentaire Sudbury Dental Group provides a range of restorative and cosmetic dentistry services to help patients improve the function of their mouth as well as their smiles. Our implant dentistry services in Sudbury allow you to fill in gaps left by missing teeth. When you lose teeth due to injury, decay or periodontal disease you may experience difficulty performing routine tasks such as eating or even forming certain words. When you close your mouth, your teeth should occlude (touch or connect) with the teeth below or above in order to perform biting and chewing. You may find yourself becoming more selective of the types of foods you eat, because they are easier to chew for instance. By replacing missing teeth with a dental prosthetic such as an implant, the void cavity left by a missing tooth is filled and your mouth can return to functioning as it is meant to as well as provide a cosmetic solution.
A dental implant is a tooth replication consisting of a titanium post, similar to a tooth root, and the crown of the tooth which is fabricated to look like your natural teeth. The titanium post is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line and acts as an anchor to which your tooth crown will connect. Your dentist will mount replacement teeth or a bridge onto the titanium post for security. Dental implants are a great option for replacing one or a few missing teeth instead of going for a partial removable denture, because dental implants do not slip or shift like other dental appliances, which makes eating and speaking effortless.
Dental Implant Options:
A metal frame is fitted onto the jawbone just below the gum tissue and becomes connected to the jawbone as the gums heal. Like the endosteal implants, with subperiosteal implants, posts which protrude from the gums are required for mounting the artificial teeth.
Endosteal implants are surgically implanted directly into the jawbone. Upon healing of the surrounding gum tissue, your dentist will need to perform another surgery to connect a post to the original implant. Once that is complete, an artificial tooth (or teeth) is attached to the post individually, or they are attached to a bridge or denture.
Don’t spend another day living with uncomfortable chewing, missing your favourite foods or slurring your speech because you have missing teeth and are unable to form the correct words.
