At Bay Elm Dental in downtown Toronto, we may recommend a dental implant to replace a missing tooth and help restore the form and function of your smile.
A dental implant is a titanium post that is positioned in your jawbone to mimic the form and function of your natural tooth root. Once healed and incorporated with your bone tissue, this post firmly supports a tooth restoration, which is most often a porcelain crown.
A gap in your smile, which is most often the result of a missing tooth, can lead to several issues including additional tooth loss, gum disease or an improper bite. A missing tooth can also cause the remaining teeth to shift. A dental implant supporting a replacement tooth, can fill the space in your smile and help prevent future tooth shifting or loss.
Whether you are missing a single tooth, multiple teeth or all your teeth, dental implants may be an option for you. If you are missing all of your teeth, we may recommend implant supported dentures.
