Besides the almost natural results they produce, dental implants are attractive for another reason: versatility. Whether you need to replace a single tooth, a few teeth, or an entire row of teeth, you can get the help you need with dental implants. During your consultation, we’ll assess your needs and make a treatment recommendation. You may need a single implant-supported crown, or you might benefit from an implant-supported partial or full denture. As a practice committed to providing patients exceptional care, we’ll help you find the solution that’s right for you.
MISSING ONE TOOTH
If only one tooth is missing, your dentist in North York will make a small incision in the gum line and drill a hole into your jawbone to place the implant. After 3 to 6 months of healing and allowing the implant to properly fuse to the bone, you’ll return to have the custom restoration added to the top of your implant.
MISSING MULTIPLE TEETH
Are you missing several teeth on a row? Not a problem! Our dentists might suggest a bridge to give you the support and appearance you want and deserve. Placing implants on either side of the gap, the three custom-made restorations will be fused together to create a bridge. Unlike a traditional fixed bridge, this gives your bone the stimulation it needs, and it prevents having to alter healthy teeth so crowns can be placed to serve as anchors.
MISSING ALL YOUR TEETH
If you’re missing all your teeth on an entire arch, you can benefit from an implant-supported denture. Traditional dentures only give you the look of a fully restored smile, but an implant-supported denture is surgically placed, not only strengthening the bone but also giving you a complete smile that will stay in place. Additionally, you can expect your new restoration to last much longer than traditional dentures.
