Missing teeth can cause all kinds of stress. Losing teeth in the first place is never pleasant. Whether it is due to old age, an injury as the result of a necessary tooth extraction, the gaps left behind can cause even more dental issues and concerns. In order to resolve any such issues from occurring and impeding on your oral health, our expert team of oral surgeons here at Brookfield Smiles Inc. can address your needs with the help of Brookfield dental implants.
There are several options available to people who are looking to replace any missing teeth. Dental bridges and dentures are common methods of doing so, but neither of these options will provide you with the same support and appearance as dental implants can. One of the major medical concerns that arise as a result of missing teeth is an added strain to the bite and surrounding, remaining teeth. When biting down or chewing, the jaw and these teeth experience strain because your bite is no longer even and complete. This can cause any remaining teeth to shift and cause your jaw to suffer from mild trauma due to the strain. With Brookfield dental implants, however, you can eat again with ease. Dental implants are stronger than other tooth replacement methods because they use titanium posts that act as artificial tooth roots. Here at Brookfield Smiles Inc., one of our oral surgeons will surgically insert these posts. During the healing process, the titanium posts will meld with the bone in a completely biological process. This process is known as osseointegration. Once the osseointegration is complete, your artificial teeth will have a sturdy, reliable foundation. After your mouth has healed, our oral surgeon can then place your artificial teeth in place.
People who wear dental bridges or dentures may still cause your bite to suffer from strain, but dental implants are a sure way to avoid such issues. If you are interested in learning more about Brookfield dental implants, call us here at Brookfield Smiles Inc. We can then schedule an appointment for you with one of our oral surgeons – Dr. Shah, Dr. Mehren or Dr. Khan – and they can help determine whether dental implants are the right option for you.
