When you’re missing teeth — or have just a single missing tooth — it can negatively affect your appearance, your self-esteem and your general health. It can keep you from smiling in photographs, from feeling comfortable in social situations, and from eating your favourite foods.
Dr. Agnieszka Jarecka is proud to offer dental implants at Smile Dental Practice in Hamilton. Dental implants are a solution that can boost your confidence and improve your overall health.
When you’re missing a tooth, the surrounding teeth will shift position in an attempt to fill the gap, and your jawbone can break down. This may change your appearance and cause you to look older. A denture doesn’t prevent the jawbone from breaking down, because it just sits on the surface.
If you are missing a tooth — or missing multiple teeth — the team at Smile Dental Practice can use dental implants in Hamilton to help restore your smile.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that replaces the missing root and functions like a tooth root. The implant is integrated into your jawbone for a long-lasting, secure restoration. A crown is then attached to the implant, giving you the look of a natural tooth. Dental implants can also be used to secure a denture, preventing it from shifting in your mouth.
