The comfortable, long-term solution for missing teeth
When you’re missing a tooth — or multiple teeth — it can negatively affect your appearance, your self-esteem and your general health. It can keep you from smiling in photographs, from feeling comfortable in social situations, and from eating your favourite foods.
When you’re missing a tooth, the surrounding teeth will shift position in an attempt to fill the gap, and your jawbone can break down. This may change your appearance and cause you to look older. A denture doesn’t prevent the jawbone from breaking down, because it just sits on the surface. If you are missing a tooth — or multiple teeth — our highly skilled team at Wentworth dental care can use implants to help restore your smile.
Implants consist of a small titanium screw that replaces your missing root and functions like a natural tooth root. The implant is integrated into your jawbone for a long-lasting, secure restoration. A crown is then attached to the implant, giving you the look of a natural tooth.
Implants can also be used to secure a denture, preventing it from shifting in your mouth. Contact us today to learn more about the ease and comfort of Wentworth dental implants.
