Improving Your Smile and Quality of Life
Losing one or more teeth can be a very unfortunate event. We need our teeth for proper speech and digestion, and not to mention – our teeth are almost always visible when we smile or laugh. But there’s good news: dental implants, a restorative service offered at Healing Touch Dental Hospital and Implant Centre, can successfully restore teeth that are lost.
Dental implants are basically artificial tooth roots composed of titanium, secured into the jawbone to support a replacement tooth.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
If your gums and bone are in good condition, you’re most likely a candidate for dental implants. However, some health conditions like diabetes might have an impact on the success of the implant bonding with the jawbone. The dentist will provide an evaluation and will be able to determine whether dental implants would be the right choice for you.
Sticking to a tighter budget? There are other restorative treatments such as bridges or dentures that your dentist will be able to talk to you about as well.
A Permanent Solution Needs Permanent Care
As long as a patient takes care of their dental implants through a diligent daily oral hygiene routine, their dental implants can last a lifetime! This includes brushing the teeth twice a day and flossing at least once a day, as well as going for regular check-up and cleaning appointments at the dentist’s. The dental hygienist uses unique dental instruments to clean dental implants thoroughly and gently. Certain tools or techniques may also be recommended by your dentist to be used at home as a part of your oral care routine.
