If you are suffering from toothache frequently, basic cleaning and antibiotics may no longer cut it. For a more long term solution, you may want to consider getting a dental implant. A dental implant in a titanium post that a dentist has to surgically position into your jawbone just beneath your gum line. It serves as an anchor for replacement teeth to be mounted onto. An experienced, high-skilled dentist in Toronto should be able to perform this procedure. Unlike a denture, an implant won’t come loose.
However, not everyone can have an implant because you must have healthy gums and bones to support it.
Otherwise, a sinus lift may be needed to be performed by your dentist in Toronto if there’s not enough bone in your upper jaw or if you have sinuses that are very close to your jaw.
If it has been determined that your gum and bone are adequate to proceed with the implant, then you can benefit from an implant as it provides great support for your artificial teeth. Bridges and dentures, and even individual crowns mounted onto your implant, will be fitted well into place and will not run the risk of coming loose, which is very important when you eat or speak. These benefits come with a little more expense than other tooth replacement options but the results are worth it.
Typically, an implant dentist in Toronto will be able to perform two major types of implants that are considered to be safe. The first type is known as an endosteal implant wherein the implants are surgically implanted directly onto your jawbone. This implant option requires a secondary surgery to attach the post to the original implant for the artificial teeth to anchor on. The second type of implant is called the subperiosteal implant in which a metal frame is fixed onto the jawbone that’s below the gum. This frame then becomes permanently attached to your jawbone when your gum has healed. The posts can then be attached to the frame where the artificial tooth can be mounted.
