Smile again with confidence using dental implants in Windsor
It can be devastating to lose a tooth, both for the health of your mouth and for your emotional wellbeing. It is only once a tooth is gone do you realise the importance of having all of your teeth, both for the ease of eating and for your appearance. If the tooth lost is one normally visible, you are probably very eager to replace it in the most effective way possible, so that you can enjoy a fully functional and beautiful smile again.
Dental implants in Windsor are a popular choice with patients and dentists alike and are potentially your solution to your smile woes. This treatment is a long lasting option that enables you to carry on with life as normal and effectively forget the traumatic experience of losing your tooth in the first place.
This is because you do not need to remove the false crown at night or for cleaning, or need to be concerned about your jawbone receding. With a dental implant you will not have to worry about other teeth becoming unstable or your restored teeth slipping, rubbing or being generally uncomfortable from one day to the next.
Dental implants in Windsor are designed to support your false tooth or teeth from high up into your jawbone like your natural teeth are supported through your tooth roots. We do this with a titanium implant that is surgically placed in your jawbone at the site of the missing tooth.
We use titanium because it is known to bond and fuse with your jawbone, allowing us to provide you with a stable and long lasting solution. Most dental implants in Windsor are able to last for several decades without interruption, you only need to maintain a proper level of oral hygiene and care to both your natural teeth and the implant site to ensure that infection or issues do not arise over this period.
It is important to ensure that you are viable for this treatment, because although there is no upper age limit and many people can reap the rewards of a fully functional mouth again, those with underlying health and dental conditions may find that the risks are too great to enable them to use this option.
Thankfully, other treatments are available for these individuals and if they are able to manage their conditions, they may be suitable for the implant treatment at a later stage.
Because the treatment does warrant a minor surgical procedure, it takes some time to heal and you do need to be aware of this. Give yourself several weeks until you can feel comfortable with using your new tooth. Often we wait a month or so before we place the crown onto the implant to allow for healing, but in other instances we are able to place the crown on immediately.
We look at each unique case that comes through our doors with fresh eyes, so that we are able to offer you the best solution for your missing teeth situation. We look forward to helping you achieve your goal of a healthier and happier smile with this procedure.
