Why Choose Dental Implants as Part of a Full Mouth Reconstruction?

From simple to complex cases, our Dr. Klaiman helps patients achieve new and restored smiles

When a person suffers from missing teeth, it is typical for many oral health issues to arise over time.

Even with a single tooth missing, normal functions such as chewing and speaking become more difficult - and the surrounding teeth can even begin to shift toward the gap where the tooth once was, causing a poor bite and an unattractive smile.

In addition to this, bone loss will gradually occur due to their no longer being a tooth root in place to stimulate the bone. This sadly changes a person’s facial structure and appearance, causing a “shrunken” and aged look.

But the good news is, every problem that occurs due to tooth loss can be prevented with a dental implant procedure! Our Toronto dentist proudly offers this service among many other full mouth reconstruction procedures, no matter how simple or complicated a patient’s unique case may be.

Understanding dental implants

Typically composed of titanium material, a dental implant is essentially an artificial tooth root shaped like a screw. During the procedure, the implant is surgically placed into the jaw bone in order to permanently support an artificial replacement tooth, referred to as a pontic.

Dental implants are a permanent, long-term solution, as they completely fuse or merge with the jawbone through a 3-6 month healing process called “osseointegration”. Following this healing phase, the artificial tooth can finally be attached and secured to the implant, completing the treatment.

Dental implants are as close as it gets to a natural tooth restoration, with an extremely high success rate (up to 98%!) - making it a truly top choice of tooth replacement according to dentists and patients alike.

Keep in mind, bone grafts may be necessary for some patients

In many cases, a patient wont be equipped with enough healthy bone mass in the jaw to support the dental implant. Therefore, a bone grafting procedure will be required before the implant can be surgically placed. While a bone grafting procedure might sound like a very complex or painful step, this step is actually very common and painless!

Bone grafts composed of special synthetic and biocompatible materials are commonly used today to build bone density in the jaw, though it has also been performed by harvesting some of the patients own bone from another site, or through using a cadaver.

From simple to complex cases, our Toronto dentist does it all!
