When you have one or more missing teeth, it can take away your self-confidence and affect your general health. You may not smile in photographs or eat your favourite foods.
When you have a missing tooth, the remaining teeth start to shift position and attempt to fill the gap, causing your jawbone to break down. This can change your whole appearance, and make you look older. Using dentures doesn’t keep the jawbone from breaking down, because it just sits on the surface.
If you’d like to restore your smile and regain your confidence, consider replacing your missing teeth with comfortable Etobicoke dental implants.
A dental implant is a small screw made of titanium that replaces the missing tooth root. It is secured into your jawbone and is a long-lasting, strong solution. A crown is then attached to the implant, and you’re left with a natural-looking smile.
A denture can also be secured using implants, preventing it from shifting around in the mouth.
