Dental implants are a restorative treatment for our Toronto patients who are missing teeth and wish to try and improve the functionality and appearance of their smile.
Why dental implants? Dental implants can look, feel, and perform just like your natural teeth!
What are dental implants?
A dental implant is an artificial post made of titanium metal that serves as a substitute for the root of a missing tooth.
When the abutment, the connector placed on top of the post, is attached to an artificial tooth (crown), this can result in a natural-looking replacement tooth.
Dental implants can be a stable tooth replacement option, and because the posts that secure dental implants in place can be integrated into the jaw, they can also help to prevent bone loss and gum recession.
