Dental implants from North York dentist Dr. Gina Ha have become an integral part of dental treatment plans for patients with missing teeth. Implants are made of titanium, a biocompatible metal that can be “fused” tightly to the jaw bone. That is why a dental implant can serve as the “root” of a missing tooth.
When a patient is missing a single tooth, a dental implant provides a replacement option that does not require the adjacent teeth to be cut down to receive a bridge. In cases where multiple teeth are missing, implants can be used to support a large bridge or to act as an anchor to stabilize a removable denture. In select cases and with careful planning, an implant and a temporary crown can all be done on the same day as the tooth removal.
Implant success rate is known to be 88% to 95%, but it cannot be overemphasized that careful planning must precede the execution of the treatment. Important anatomical structures, such as major nerves and sinuses, must be identified, the quantity and quality of bone should be carefully evaluated, the optimum comprar viagra location for the implant and tooth should be determined, and other existing dental conditions must be identified and treated prior to implant surgery in order to ensure successful treatment outcomes.
