Dental Implants can be the ideal option for patients who have lost one or more teeth. The part of the implant that is placed in the bone is made of titanium which is biocompatible with your bone. Your bone will heal around the implant in such a way that it will be absolutely “solid”. If one implant is replacing a single tooth, the single implant tooth will appear lifelike and natural again. Even flossing will be similar to before.
If multiple teeth are missing, or if a whole jaw has no teeth, Dr Gary Klein can treatment plan a solution to replace your missing teeth. He can offer you solutions that have the implants fixed into place so that they will not be removable. As well, Dr Klein can offer a removable option so that implants are incorporated into the design of the removable denture to make it have more staying power/retention while at the same time reducing costs.
As each patient is unique, treatment options will be discussed with you the patient, taking into consideration the health, quantity, and quality of your jaw bone.
Implants are exciting for many reasons. They will help with your appearance as the bone is maintained where the implants are. Otherwise, bone loss will continue where teeth are missing, leaving in some cases a face with a sunken-in, more aged appearance.With implants, patient comfort and appearance are vastly improved while boosting your self confidence. Chewing is easier and the ability to taste is better.
Implants are a very exciting option for the right individual and we invite you to make an appointment to find out your options, and see how implants can impact your life!
