Are dental implants right for me?

It used to be that your only options to replace missing teeth were dentures or bridges. Today, dental implants are a popular choice because of their strong foundation and natural appearance.

Millions of Canadians unfortunately suffer tooth loss, even those who have done their best to take excellent care of their teeth. Many people make the decision to have dental implants to improve their appearance and make it easier to eat the foods they love.

East Main Dental Care in the Niagara region is experienced in dental implants. The dentist and his professional staff carefully explain all procedures so you know exactly what to expect. They also do implant restorations.

Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. Fused with bone, they become permanent, so there is no messy adhesive to keep them in place.

When wearing dentures, there is always a concern they could slip, making it difficult to speak or eat. That’s not an issue with dental implants. Dental implants function just like your own teeth, so you can eat your favourite foods without worry.

There are benefits to having dental implants over other alternatives. A bridge can sacrifice the structure of surrounding teeth, while leaving empty spaces in your mouth after losing teeth can lead to health issues such as the loss of some of your jawbone.

Nearly anyone in good health whose jaw has finished growing is a candidate for dental implants, whether they were born without a tooth or lost one or more teeth through injury, decay, gum disease or infection.

Dental implants are easy to clean and with good care, they can last a lifetime.

You can have East Main Dental Care send estimates to your insurance providers to see if dental implants are covered under your benefit plan.

If you are considering implants, contact East Main Dental Care today at 905-735-3310. They are located at 199 East Main Street in Welland.
