With millions of Canadian adults currently missing permanent teeth, Dr. Jeffrey Rein is encouraging patients to consider the benefits that permanent implants offer for the prevention of natural bone and tooth preservation after tooth loss. In addition to improving aesthetics, dental implants have also proven to prevent the resorption of the jawbone and help to preserve the structure of surrounding permanent teeth.
Adults with permanent missing teeth traditionally had to rely on one of three options to restore aesthetics and partial function to their mouth: bridges, partial dentures, or full dentures. In the instance of bridges, structure from the surrounding permanent teeth must be removed to create an appliance that conceals the gap of the missing tooth. Bridges along with dentures of either kind still don’t provide the jawbone with material like a natural tooth root that keeps the hard tissue of the bone viable and intact. Instead, it begins to shrink, having no material to support.
Dental implants, however, are a permanent solution to that problem. The design of the implant mimics that of the natural root of the tooth, providing the jawbone with sufficient material to support and bond with, ensuring that it stays healthy and strong.
“Most patients don’t realize that there’s a whole other element to the benefits of dental implants other than just aesthetics,” said Dr. Jeffrey Rein, provider of dental implants in Westmount, QC. “Dental implants can entirely prevent the jawbone from resorbing, preserving face shape as well as keeping the surrounding bone healthy for other natural teeth that surround the placement of the implant.”
In the case of a single missing tooth, patients risk losing multiple permanent teeth if the bone continues to resorb past the area of the original missing tooth. For patients with a series of missing teeth or entire top and bottom arches of missing teeth, a shrinking jawbone can entirely alter the shape of their face as well as make them more prone to injury and disease.
Dental implants are completed by surgically installing a small metal screw into the jawbone where the permanent tooth or teeth are missing. This small screw bonds and fuses with the material of the bone over a period of several weeks, after which an artificial crown is attached to it. Once completed, the entire implant looks identical to a natural tooth, and performs just as well.
Dr. Rein encourages any patient with a permanent missing tooth to schedule an exam to determine if they are a good candidate for cosmetic dental implants in Westmount, QC. Even if their bone has resorbed to the point where it may not support an implant, Dr. Rein is able to provide bone-grafting service to make sure the permanent implant is sturdy and will last a lifetime.
