When you have lost a single tooth from an otherwise functional and aesthetically appealing smile, you will likely feel some concern about discovering the best replacement option available, one that seamlessly blends with your existing teeth. Furthermore, you may want an artificial tooth that will not cause damage to your surrounding healthy teeth or tissue. In this situation, you may be best served with a single dental implant.
There are some cases of multiple missing teeth, such as when the three posterior teeth are gone, wherein the only permanent replacement method will be dental implants with a fixed bridge attachment. There are many benefits to utilizing dental implants to replace multiple missing teeth regardless of their location, including preservation of the jawbone structure, improved stability and strength, and the potential for enhanced facial contour.
Dentures can become loose over time or suffer from an imperfect fit. If you’re experiencing this problem, miniature dental implants can help to stabilize uncomfortable dentures and improve their longevity. The mini dental implant procedure typically requires less downtime than full dental implantation, and you usually can have the treatment completed in one day.
A serious injury or accident can lead to several broken, damaged, or missing teeth that require more than a single procedure to repair. A full mouth reconstruction is a highly detailed customized treatment plan that can address multiple concerns and may include implants, crowns, fillings, veneers, and/or bridges. Dr. Narang and his skilled team of dentists in Mississauga will develop a precise dental plan that offers the best cosmetic and functional outcome possible. With over 25 years experience, Dr. Narang has considerable skill with optimizing the aesthetic and functional results of a full mouth reconstruction.
We will make you as comfortable as possible. You will be numbed for the procedure, and the type of anesthetic used will depend on your treatment plan. If you experience anxiety, our sedation dentistry options are available to put you at greater ease. Please inform us in advance if you believe you will benefit from one of these techniques. Once you are ready, Dr. Narang will surgically implant the posts into the jawline. You should feel no pain and only minimal, if any, discomfort. The posts are placed in a very specific configuration to optimize the stability and strength of your implants.
You have many options when it comes to restoring your smile, and our team can help you find the right fit for your needs, goals, and preferences. If dental implants are not right for you due to insufficient jawbone density, All-on-4® may be a suitable alternative. Implant-anchored dentures, dental bridges, partial dentures, and mini implants are other examples of potential alternatives. Not all techniques will suit all patients, so an evaluation is an essential first step in identifying the optimal method for you.
