Tooth loss is a very serious issue. Most who suffer from tooth loss are embarrassed by the problem, and it can cause their self-esteem to suffer. Simple tasks like chewing and speaking can become very difficult. Worse yet, if the issue is left untreated, even more serious problems can develop. These include tooth shifts, jawbone deterioration and loss of facial structure.
Thanks to advances in modern dentistry, the experienced professionals at Smile Matters Inc. can treat tooth loss better than ever before. We can provide natural-looking dentures and implants that will restore the appearance and function of missing teeth. A consultation with our expert team will help us determine the best solution for your needs.
Dentures are natural-looking artificial teeth that are supported by a gum-colored base. Some dentures are kept in place using suction or adhesives, while others use surgically placed dental implants. Dentures that use implants can be fixed or removable.
Dental implants are titanium metal posts that are surgically inserted in the jawbone to act as artificial tooth roots. Titanium is the perfect material for implants because it is strong and durable, and it will fuse with the jawbone. Dental implants are the best way to ensure that artificial teeth remain secure. Dental implants can be used to support anything from a single new tooth to a full arch of teeth.
