A strong, comfortable solution for missing teeth.
Missing a tooth — or multiple teeth — can have a negative effect on your self-esteem. Many people are embarrassed to smile for photographs, or feel self-conscious about speaking or eating in public. Favourite foods may even be off-limits, because it causes pain or discomfort to eat them.
Missing teeth can also pose a health risk. The gaps become a prime spot for tooth decay, and the surrounding teeth will shift position in an attempt to fill the gap — causing your jawbone to break down. This may change the appearance of your face, causing you to look older.
Our Hamilton dental implants consist of a small titanium screw that functions exactly like a natural tooth root. The implant is placed into your jawbone for a long-lasting, secure restoration. We then attach a custom CEREC crown to your implant, giving you the look of a real tooth.
We can also use dental implants to secure a denture, keeping it from shifting and moving in your mouth. Contact Westdale Dental today to learn more about the ease and comfort of dental implants in Hamilton.
We also offer CeraRoot ceramic dental implants at our Hamilton clinic as an alternative to traditional dental implants. CeraRoot dental implants are made of Zirconium, which is used in implant dentistry because of its biocompatible characteristics. This means it integrates very well with the bone tissue when placed in the jaw, creating a firm anchoring effect. This is known as osseointegration, a factor that affects the longevity of an implant. Additionally zirconium is white and gives restorations a more natural appearance, compared with metallic implants.
Benefits of CeraRoot Implants:
- Biocompatibility and osseointegration.
- Allergies and sensitivities. This is a solution for those who have titanium allergies.
- Corrosion resistant.
- Safe. The material does not alter the body's energy meridians and is bio-inert.
- Esthetics. With titanium implants there is a possibility for a greyness to appear due to the material, whereas CeraRoot is a white implant and will not shine through the gum.
