Nowadays, modern dentistry offers alternatives to traditional dentures. If you’ve been missing out on your favourite crispy foods or if you have are experiencing some discomfort in chewing due to your dentures slipping, reach out to Bow Island Dental Centre to discuss dental implants.
Dental implants are composed of two-part structures: a titanium base and a porcelain crown. The base is implanted into your jaw bone and, typically in a few months, fuses into the bone, forming a firm foundation for the crown. Custom-shaped, the crown is coloured to blend with your natural teeth giving you a comfortable, firm bite, and a natural-looking smile.
Regardless of your age, you can get dental implants as long as your teeth are at their mature size and your general oral health is good. Rest assured that the implant will not decay as it will actually help stimulate and preserve the condition of the jaw bone which can deteriorate when a tooth is missing.
Since dental implants require a surgery, your dental insurance may not be completely covered by. However, it is worth considering due to its lasting benefits.
