If you’re lost a tooth or teeth from periodontal (gum) disease, accident, injury or any other reason, a dental implant at Sumas Mountain Dental can restore your smile, your oral health and your confidence.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are titanium screws implanted into your jaw that provide support for a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are essential in dental restoration treatments because they prevent gum loss, bone loss and bite misalignment – which happens when your other teeth start to crowd into the empty space. Implants do not rely on adjacent teeth for support (as bridges do) and titanium has been found to be a highly-compatible metal with teeth and gums, so there’s nothing to worry about! A dental implant today is a high-tech, low-stress solution for your missing tooth or teeth.
Dental implants look and feel just like your real teeth – in fact, they’re so secure and comfortable you might forget you even have implants. However, just like your real teeth, dental implants require proper oral care. Brush twice daily, floss regularly and book regular dental hygienist appointments at Sumas Mountain Dental Centre.
What can Dental Implants Do for You?
Dental implants are ideal if you’re in good general and oral health and have sufficient bone to support a dental implant, and they’re an excellent alternative to bridges and dentures. Dr. Yu at Sumas Mountain Dental is highly experienced in providing dental implants to patients and will work with your throughout your treatment to ensure you have the best and most comfortable dental implant treatment possible.
