If one or more teeth in your jaw are missing, we have a few replacement options to choose from. Partial or complete dentures serve the purpose just fine but one of the most comfortable replacements are dental implants. These implants are used to replace missing roots and support artificial replacement teeth. You can get a set of dental implants that match the look of your natural teeth.
At Concept Dental in Conception Bay South, we can help replace one or several of your broken teeth by using dental implants. These are artificial roots made of titanium that are implanted into the jawbone as a replacement for the root of your natural tooth. An artificial tooth is then attached to the implant. If you are considering tooth replacement, get in touch with us to book a dental appointment today.
Generally, if you have healthy gums and enough bone in the jaw then you can get dental implants without any issues. However, if your jawbone has shrunk or your gums are weak, you may need certain augmentative procedures like a bone graft or sinus lift before you can take the implants. You can consult with a dental specialist about your current jawbone and gum condition before making the decision to get dental implants.
