Dental Implants Coquitlam
A missing tooth is not only aesthetically embarrassing and can affect your self-confidence, but it can also be the source of further health issues such as discomfort, gum disease and teeth shifting which can alter biting and facial muscles.
What Are Dental Implants?
Implants are a great way to replace a missing tooth, several teeth or even to support a permanent hybrid denture. Unlike bridges implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. They are composed of the titanium artificial roots (the implant) anchored in the jaw bone and a custom-colored crown (to match your natural teeth) cemented to the top of that root.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Implants give you a natural-looking smile, preserve the health of your remaining teeth and can last a lifetime with the proper care, so you don’t have to worry about replacement.
How to Care for Dental Implants
Dental implants require the same care as your regular teeth: brushing, flossing and regular dental checkups.
