-- Patients who are missing teeth might dread the idea of partials or dentures. However, with missing teeth patients begin to feel self-conscious about their appearance. With advancements in dentistry, Dr. Andrea Johnstone of Johnstone Periodontics offers the best solution: dental implants for Toronto residents. With the availability of dental implants in Toronto, patients can experience a restored smile without the need for dentures.
"Dental implants are an innovative, advanced solution for missing teeth. Many adults can expect to lose a tooth in their lifetime, and, unfortunately, many will experience significant tooth loss. If you would like a beautiful smile with the ability to chew with comfort and confidence, dental implants may be the right choice for your dental needs," said Dr. Andrea Johnstone, a periodontist in Toronto.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically anchored into the jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. However, with Teeth Express in Toronto, dental implants can also be used to anchor dentures in place. Implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support and are permanent and durable. With the look and feel of natural teeth, dental implants are a great way to restore a smile as close as possible to a patient's natural teeth.
Additionally, implants can be used in conjunction with other restorative procedures for maximum effectiveness. A dental crown can gain support from an implant or implants can be used to support a dental bridge for the replacement of missing teeth. Advancements in procedures and technology allow more people than ever to become candidates for implantation.
The Benefits of restoring a patient's teeth in Toronto with dental implants Include:
- Restored chewing functions
- Durable and long-lasting
- Improved speech
- Prevent progressive bone loss and gum recession
- Look and feel like natural teeth
- Renewed self-confidence and improved self-esteem
Not everyone is a candidate for dental implants, although this is becoming less of an issue. To determine if dental implants are the right restoration solution, a consultation with Toronto periodontist, Dr. Andrea Johnstone, is needed. During the initial appointment, Dr. Johnstone will conduct a thorough examination of the patient's teeth and gums to decide whether implants are the ideal solution.
Based on the condition of the patient's oral tissues, oral hygiene and personal habits, Dr. Johnstone will advise each patient of an appropriate dental implant treatment plan that best fits his or her individual needs. Patients are encouraged to make an appointment with Dr. Andrew Johnstone of Johnstone Periodontics and find out if dental implants are a good solution for restoring his or her teeth.
