IMPLANT DENTIST BRADFORD, KESWICK & ORANGEVILLE
Dental implants are an extremely powerful tool at the disposal of dentists today. They allow for permanent placement and secure attachment of dental restorations such as crowns, bridges or even complete dentures. Implant supported restorations have a number of important advantages when compared to their removable and fixed counterparts. These advantages include improved functionality (biting and chewing ability), minimum bone resorbtion (bone loss) that can occur in the absence of natural root system, and no involvement (i.e. tooth preparation) of healthy adjacent teeth.
DENTAL IMPLANT CLINIC DENTISTRY
Implants are small titanium “screws” that are surgically placed into the jaw bone. Over time, the bone grows around the implants and holds them firmly in place (process called osseointegration). After placement and a few months of healing, the implants are restored with a crown, bridge or a complete denture.
