There are many different dental implant options available at our Oshawa dental office. If you are missing teeth, dental implants act as metal anchors or substitutes for missing tooth structures. Missing teeth can limit your ability to eat the foods you love or smile with confidence. Dental implants are not just the foundation for replacement teeth like bridges or dentures—they are the first step in regaining a functional, attractive smile.
A dental implant is a small prosthetic post that is placed into the bone of the upper or lower jaw. The post functions as the root portion of the lost natural tooth and serves as an anchor for the replacement tooth. Once the post has settled an artificial tooth is attached to fill the empty space. Dental implants are a perfect replica for your natural teeth. The best part is no one will be able to tell the difference other than you and your dentist.
What is a tooth's purpose?
Acting as a chewing surface
Holding its place with regards to adjacent teeth
Maintaining the bone structure where it was rooted
