Losing a tooth can be a stressful occurrence, and sometimes the confidence behind your smile can take a hit as a result. At Mi Dental in Kitchener, ON, Dr. Sharib Manzoor, and Dr. Ali Ahmed believe dental implants can restore your smile and your confidence!
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are constructed from titanium, making the restorative procedure a life-long investment. Through a process called osseointegration, your jawbone recognizes the implant as a similar structure to that of the lost tooth root—creating the necessary support for an artificial tooth replacement after the healing process has occurred.
Why choose dental implants?
Once fully healed and if taken care of properly, dental implants can last a lifetime. When you receive dental implants, you can take comfort knowing that the implant will never cause decay—however, your dentists at Mi Dental in Kitchener, ON, encourage you to remember that this does not mean you can neglect your daily oral care routine!
Even though the dental implants will not harm your health, neighboring teeth, it's still important to remain consistent with the proper oral care you've maintained throughout your life.
When you lose a tooth, you have a much higher chance of losing the strength of your jawbone, which often leads to improper bite and poor function. Dental implants can provide the support your jawbone needs to maintain proper oral health.
How do I know if I'm a good candidate for dental implants?
Nearly anyone at any age can receive dental implants, but the best way to know if you would make a good candidate for the restorative dental treatment is to receive a proper evaluation from your dentists, Dr. Manzoor and Dr. Ahmed.
