Losing a tooth due to injury, dental decay, or gum disease can happen. However, to avoid causing problems for the adjacent teeth and your overall dental health, it is essential to replace the lost tooth. Restoration can be done in several ways, including fixed bridges, removable partial or full dentures and a more recent procedure known as dental implants.
One of the most significant dental innovations in recent times, an implant is a small surgical fixture made of biocompatible metal or ceramic materials placed into the jawbone and functions in the same manner as the tooth’s root. In the same way that a natural root supports the natural crown of your tooth, an implant, once it fully integrates with the surrounding bone, provides a stable and durable foundation for a replacement tooth. Implants often support a crown for an individual tooth and can also be used as abutment teeth for a dental bridge, or strategically placed to help stabilize a denture.
Out of all of the dental restorative choices available today, a dental implant in Saskatoon comes the closest to replicating the look, feel and function of a natural tooth. Furthermore, it is the only method of tooth replacement that does not require the involvement or preparation of the adjacent teeth. A dental implant also stimulates bone remodelling to prevent shrinkage in areas where teeth are missing and helps to restore facial contours in areas where significant bone loss has occurred.
