Candidates for Dentures
Did you know that around one quarter or adults over the age of 65 are missing all of their teeth? Dentures are a common and respectable solution to missing teeth. They are so dependable and natural-looking that you’ve probably spoken to someone with dentures and didn’t even know it. Do you think you might be a good candidate for dentures? To be a good candidate for this restorative treatment you should:
Wish to replace several or all of your teeth. There are alternative solutions available if you wish to replace just one or two teeth.
Have a healthy jawbone. After you lose a tooth, your jawbone will slowly become thin and less able to support a denture-- especially an implant-supported denture.
Be ready to take good care of your dentures at home and with routine cleanings and checkups!
Dental implants are a permanent solution for restoring your smile.
A dental implant is the closest you can get to a real tooth. Feel confident again as your new implant blends seamlessly into your natural smile.
Many of our patients in the Scarborough area of Toronto appreciate the fact that we are able to streamline the process by providing both the surgical phase (placement of the implant fixture into the jawbone) as well as the restorative phase (placing the crowns on top of the fixture) portions of the procedure. We value your time with us and commit to offering you a full range of treatment all in-house.
Diagnosis and treatment planning
When a tooth is lost – either to decay, fracture or bone loss — the options used to be doing a three-unit bridge, leaving the space empty or dentures. Using this new technology, we are able to offer our patients something that looks and feels like your natural teeth.
By using biocompatible titanium fixtures that are placed into the bone to support a new crown (or bridge) we are able replace the “root support” for natural looking permanent teeth. The advantages of dental implants are that they help maintain and preserve the bone height, prevent adjacent teeth from tipping and don’t involve turning a single tooth problem into a three-tooth problem by grinding down the adjacent teeth to place a bridge.
Finding the right solution for you
Depending on the condition of the patient’s mouth, their overall health (medical condition), their age, condition of the adjacent teeth and the health of the bone, an alternative treatment may be recommended. The best way to determine which option is best for you is to come in for a consultation with our highly trained doctors to discuss your individual condition and customized treatment plan.
