All too often an individual missing a tooth in the back of their mouth will have an out of sight, out of mind attitude. However a missing tooth is more than just an aesthetic concern. It can have harsh consequences!

It is more appropriate to think of a missing tooth as a space where a tooth used to be. Beyond aesthetics, a tooth's purpose is to:Dental Implants Richmond Hill
  • Help keep all your teeth in place
  • Act as a chewing surface
  • Maintain bone structure where it was rooted
  • As well as many other structural and preventative roles.
Without that tooth in place surrounding teeth can shift causing gaps and making tooth decay, bone loss and damage more likely. The area can become more susceptible to periodontal disease and other conditions.

To avoid bone loss, you must maintain the proper spacing of your teeth and avoid the maladies associated with a missing tooth. An implant will assume the place of the missing tooth. The implant is a small prosthetic post that is placed into the bone of the jaw. The post functions as the root portion of the lost natural tooth, and serves as an anchor. Once the post has settled, an artificial tooth is attached to fill the space that was once your missing tooth.

A dental implant can give back a patient's confidence in their smile, the ability to eat comfortably, and a healthy oral environment. Dental implants look and feel exactly like natural teeth, no one other than you and your dentist will be able to tell the difference.

There are many different types of dental implants available. Dr. Anthony Bastone would be pleased to discuss the benefits of dental implants with you. Please feel free to contact us, we serve Richmond Hill, Thornhill and the surrounding areas.
