There are many different reasons as to why we can lose teeth.
Sports injuries and accidents are some of the most common reasons for missing teeth, but one thing is for sure, it’s not a rare occurrence. That being said, Glenora Family Dental offers our patients dental implants as a remedy to replace a missing tooth/teeth.
What are dental implants?
Made of titanium, dental implants are carefully placed in the jawbone where they act as an artificial tooth root. Eventually, the bone will grow around the implant giving it strength like a natural root. To complete the implant, a dental crown - designed to blend in with your natural teeth - is placed on top of the implant, and secured in place. Unlike dentures, dental implants do not shift or move. Dental implants are a great remedy to replace one or more missing teeth.
