Your implant dentist near Port Credit achieves a high degree of functionality with precise treatment

Historically, the best way to replace missing teeth has been with dentures or bridgework. In recent decades, however, we have begun to see a shift in the area of tooth replacement. Today, many men and women choose to restore functionality and a natural appearance by including dental implants into their treatment plan. With this option, patients can replace one tooth, several, or can handle toothlessness with ease. Although implants themselves are individual prosthetics, it is possible to replace a full set of teeth in a very cost-effective manner.

Dental implants have an extremely high success rate. An implant or implants may be recommended by your dentist in the Port Credit area to achieve benefits such as:

  • The highest possible degree of chewing function. Our ability to effectively chew foods is extremely important to the overall digestive process. If foods are not broken down enough in chewing, the digestive system must work harder and nutrients may not be adequately extracted from foods. Without adequate stability or the proper number of teeth, chewing is inhibited. One side of the mouth may be favored, placing undue stress on certain teeth and not using others enough to stimulate the jawbone. By replacing teeth with prosthetics that feel natural and stable, Dr. Kotecha helps her patients continue enjoying various foods and better health.

  • Replacing missing teeth is as much about the smile as it is about function. Teeth are a very important part of our wellbeing due to their presence in the smile. The face, as well, gains support from teeth, which plump the cheeks and the lips, keeping them from sinking inward. Through teeth and their roots, the jawbone receives stimulation, which keeps bone tissue healthy. Without this stimulation, bone will break down, also affecting the facial contours.

Dental implants may be individual units designed to replace individual teeth. This level of care, however, is not limited. Many people are now choosing to incorporate implants into treatment for total tooth replacement. Combining the right number of implants with a bridge or denture, it is possible to achieve outstanding comfort and functionality, and a natural appearance.

Dr. Kotecha and her team have extensive experience. At Dentistry on 10, you can expect care that is tailored to your needs and designed for optimal results that last. Schedule your visit with our friendly team today.
