If you have experienced tooth loss, it is important that you fix them as soon as possible. A prolonged missing tooth can cause the rest of your teeth to shift and the deterioration of the jaw bone. This can lead to misalignment that affects chewing, jaw joint disorders, and various other dental issues. Dental implants are a great option to restore and prevent all of these problems. 

Dental implants are one of the best solutions to restore a tooth that looks and feels like natural teeth. At the offices of Dr. Dennis D’Hondt in Fraser, we provide high quality dental implants to help patients restore lost teeth and their dental health. Dental implants can be used to replace just one tooth or a row row of teeth. Implants  are designed to last for a lifetime when taken care of properly.

Compared to other restoration solutions, dental implants feel more comfortable in the mouth and they make it easier to chew and speak. They are also one of the best solutions available today to provide patients with a beautiful smile and the confidence they need.

Dental implants are a permanent tooth restoration solution and typically comprise of three parts:

The Implant

Commonly made of titanium material, the implant is a screw that serves as a root for the new teeth. The titanium implant is inserted into the jawbone to secure the tooth and stimulate the nerves and bones in order to keep the jaws healthy.

The Abutment

The abutment is designed to serve as a permanent connector to support the replacement crown.

The Crown

The crown is the replacement tooth. It is usually made of porcelain material that can mimic the look of natural teeth.

How strong are dental implants compared to real teeth?

Since the dental crown is typically made of porcelain material fused to metal or zirconia, they are the most durable compared to other tooth restoration options, while keeping the look of the natural teeth. As a result, dental implants are very reliable and can last for a decade or more as long as surrounding teeth are properly taken care of. It is also important to have regular visits to the dentist to ensure that your dental implant is in good condition.
