Nothing is as good as your natural teeth, but dental implants can come close. The base of an implant is screw made of titanium and other materials that integrate with the jaw bone. A dental crown takes the place of a natural tooth and is secured to the top of the implant. Dr. Kooner and is highly trained team at Wasaga Dental can provide you with a dental solution that will change your life forever.
What to expect
Once you lose a tooth, the body begins to break down the bone where the tooth no longer exists. The more teeth that are missing, the more bone that is lost. Eventually, this results in shrinking of the jawbone, which leads to loss of support to other teeth, drifting of teeth into the gaps and facial collapse around the mouth. With dental implants, the loss of bone and drifting of adjacent teeth can be prevented to maintain your bite and smile.
Dental implant costs vary due to multiple factors. What is the current state of your gum tissue and bone? How many implants are needed? How many appointments are necessary? Each patient will differ in the required work to restore the missing teeth. A treatment plan will be discussed during your initial consultation, which will include the necessary procedures and an estimated cost.
