One of the most common questions we encounter at the QQ Dental clinic goes like this: ‘I still have some remaining teeth, can I still get dental implants?’ If you find yourself posed with a similar question then you’ll be happy to know that the answer is ‘yes’.
Dental implants in Toronto are available for any number of teeth that need to be replaced, whether it be for a single tooth or a complete set of teeth.
Aside from this, another concern arises around whether implants are always a possibility to replace a missing tooth or teeth. The answer to this is actually contingent on the condition of your jawbone. Your dentist will help you undergo certain tests to determine if there is enough bone density in your jaw to support the implant. If your jawbone is not healthy or strong enough to support dental implants in Toronto then the dentist may suggest bone grafting first to accommodate the implants. You may request a sedative from your dentist if you are anxious about any pain during the procedure.
Once your dentist has given the go ahead and the implants have been placed, your jawbone will be left to grow and fuse with the implant. This process can take more or less than a few months depending on how your bone grows to support the placement of false teeth; temporary dentures will be needed as your implants heal. In addition, you may need to wear healing caps over the implant site to protect against infection and other dental problems until healing is finished.
Your final concern will typically be around how easy or hard it will be to clean dental implants in Toronto. Cleaning and maintaining your dental implants is not altogether difficult but aftercare is very crucial if you want them to last. Your dentist will instruct you with specific steps and ways how to take optimal care of your implants. Generally speaking, cleaning protocols are similar to your natural teeth but for hard-to-reach areas your dentist can show you how to do it. On a whole, looking after and maintaining your dental implants doesn’t have to be a chore, and ends up being easier than expected for most patients!
