At Norwood Dental Centre in Winnipeg, we offer dental implant options to replace missing teeth and stabilize dentures.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a small anchor made of titanium that is used to replace missing or failing teeth or to help secure a denture. These implants are surgically placed into bone to function like the root of your missing tooth. Dental implants are designed to maintain the surrounding bone and gums leaving you with a natural looking tooth replacement.
Dental implants can improve your oral health if you are missing any teeth. They can:
Replace missing teeth without affecting surrounding teeth
Resolve jaw pain or bite issues caused by adjacent teeth shifting into missing tooth space
Help restore a patient’s confidence in their smile
Improve speech, eating and digestion
Restore or enhance facial tissues
Support a bridge or denture, making them comfortable and stable
Why Replace Missing Teeth
It is imperative to replace any missing teeth because the teeth surrounding the gap may begin to shift out of place and cause misalignment issues. If a tooth is missing, the jaw bone around the area may also begin to deteriorate, resulting in facial collapse or negatively impacting your ability to eat and talk.
