Brampton’s Fletcher’s Creek Dental remembers that at one time if you were missing a tooth, you would have to have a custom removable plate made for you that contained the teeth to fill in the gaps in your smile. But implant technology has come a long way, and the team at Fletcher’s Creek can help you with options if you’re missing some teeth, which can affect your bite or speech.
Many modern dental implants can replace one or more teeth without the need for a partial denture. An artificial root is created using metal and is fastened permanently to the jawbone, with the durable artificial tooth inserted into place. This eliminates the need to worry about denture slippage, or having to remove your plate for cleaning — you can brush an implant just like any of your natural teeth.
Another popular option is a bridge, which helps keep surrounding teeth in line when a tooth is lost. An impression of your teeth is taken to recreate the missing tooth and provide a crown for the two adjacent teeth, which are filed down to accommodate the bridge attachment. This is another permanent option that removes the extra maintenance needed with partials.
Having teeth replaced will not only help your jaw function better so that you can properly chew food, but it will also boost your self-confidence. Implants can be created and installed relatively quickly and comfortably by the expert team at Fletcher’s Creek Dental.
If you have damaged teeth, the friendly office can offer to create realistic crowns using the newest Cerec 3D restoration technology.
