Dental Implants

Dental Implant Treatments at Simcoe Dental

Missing teeth can affect the shape of a person’s mouth, and can also impact the symmetry of a person’s face by creating an imbalance (for example, sunken cheeks).  Gaps in a person’s smile can impair their ability to eat certain foods, and can also increase the rate of which bone loss and teeth’s erosion take place.  A dental implant can be a very practical and natural looking solution to replacing a missing tooth (or several missing teeth).

An implant consists of a very small titanium screw, which a dental surgeon will affix into the patient’s jawbone.  Once a dental implant integrates into the jaw (titanium is biocompatible, and will actually merge with the patient’s jaw and tissues).  A healing period of generally 3-6 months is required.  After healing, a restoration (crown and bridge, or denture) is crafted to fit on top of the implant, creating a tooth that compliments your smile, as it restores functionality and stability.
