When you’re missing teeth — or have just a single missing tooth — it can negatively affect your appearance, your self-esteem and your general health. It can keep you from smiling in photographs, from feeling comfortable in social situations, and from eating your favourite foods.
Dental Implants at Evergreen Dental are ideal for denture wearers and people with one or more missing teeth. Not only are implants a more convenient option, but they can also restore your confidence and help you to enjoy life more.
Here's why our Dartmouth dental implants are a good choice for patients with missing teeth:
Quite simply, a dental implant is a titanium post that acts as a replacement for the root of a tooth. They can support individual teeth (crowns), or prosthetics, such as a bridge containing a number of teeth.
Dr. Paul Bonazza has advanced training in dental implants, and can give you permanent teeth, often in as little as three appointments. He is also passionate about this aspect of dentistry, and continues to upgrade his skills through continuing education.
When a person is missing a tooth, a dental implant is the ideal solution. A dental implant does not stress the adjacent teeth and offers the best long-term success rate.
The dental implant placement is most often done in a short appointment at Evergreen Dental with simple local freezing. The bone is allowed to heal (integrate) around the implant for three months on average.
A temporary tooth will be provided immediately, especially if front teeth are being replaced. This tooth looks and feels very natural.
An implant-supported bridge is used to replace multiple adjacent missing teeth. It requires two or more implants and provides superior cosmetic and functional results. The teeth are securely attached and are not removable.
A full fixed replacement is commonly the solution sought when the four to five teeth in the arch of the mouth are missing.
A full arch of teeth, often constructed of porcelain and an underlying metal frame, are secured to four implants using All-on-4® technology. This prosthetic is not removable by the patient. This option is for patients who are looking for a natural looking replacement for their missing teeth.
You won’t believe how natural-looking your new smile will be. Here at Evergreen Dental, we use iTero technology to create precise digital scans. Using a digital wand, we’re able to skip the messing impression process and capture highly-accurate whole-tooth images.
