If one or more of your teeth are missing, there are a number of ways to replace them. An alternative to bridges, partials or complete dentures are dental implants, they’re the next best tooth replacement option to the real teeth. The implants are placed into the jawbone, made of titanium, are strong, non-toxic, and biologically compatible with the mouth.After osseointegration (bone grows into the implant screws) the Doctor places a single crown or bridge on top of it to act like a natural tooth. Implant-supported dentures also give more function confidence to the patients.
Because dental implants are placed in the jawbone, artificial replacement teeth attached to implants look and act much like natural teeth. Like natural teeth, implants need to be kept clean using a toothbrush and floss. Please schedule an appointment with Dr. Sidhu to discuss your options.
