Choose A Lasting Solution To Missing Teeth With Dental Implants

Dental implants can be a great solution for those seeking to replace missing teeth, support prosthetics and improve their oral health. At Summit Heights Dental in North York, our experienced dentists can help you determine whether this is the right choice for you.

What issues do dental implants address?

Dental implants can replace a single missing tooth, multiple teeth, and even an entire arch of teeth. They also support replacement dentures, bridges, and other prosthetics. Implants can help alleviate common dental issues such as looseness or jaw pain from ill-fitting dentures, shifting teeth or bite misalignment due to missing teeth.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Implants can improve appearance, comfort, and oral health by providing a secure solution for prosthetics that won’t move or shift when speaking or chewing. Implants also last longer than other options, such as bridges or dentures, and can help reduce bone loss in the jaw.

Are dental implants safe?

Dental implants are considered a safe and effective solution for missing teeth when performed by a professional dentist. At Summit Heights Dental, we surgically install the dental implant below the gumline and allow the artificial root to stabilize and heal, allowing the implant time to reinforce your jawbone and inhibit further bone loss. Once sufficiently healed, a replacement tooth crown is secured to the implant to ensure successful placement and long-term results.

How long is the recovery time?

The entire procedure can take several months, but recovery time depends on the individual and your overall oral health. In most cases, individuals can expect to fully recover within a few months.

Who is a good candidate for dental implants?

Good candidates for dental implants should have good oral health, with little to no gum disease or cavities, and strong bone structure. Additionally, individuals should be willing to commit to the recovery process and follow our dentist's instructions on post-operative care.
