Next best thing to healthy, natural teeth

Strong and stable, a dental implant restores a lost tooth so that it looks, feels, fits and functions like a natural tooth. Other options can lead to bone deterioration, and may interfere with eating, smiling, speaking and other activities of everyday life.

Prevent Jawbone Deterioration

One benefit is helping to prevent jawbone deterioration. A bone loss tends to come with tooth loss, as teeth are rooted in the jaw and act as conduits of energy and force to the bone.

What this means, is that when we eat or chew, our teeth share some of the strain of those actions to the jaw, and what this does is trigger the jaw to regenerate new bone tissue to repair cracks and other damage.

It’s a lot like a muscle in the sense that, to build more muscle, you must tear the old tissue first by working out. The jaw works much the same way.

Implants are Biocompatible

Implant fixtures are biocompatible and are organically assimilated by the jaw, and so the fixture replicates many of the same functions that your tooth roots usually fulfill.

In other words, thanks to the implant your risk of jawbone loss decreases because the fixture will be hard at work inducing that constant process of bone regeneration and strengthening. They are, in fact, the only tooth loss treatment that fulfills this function. Other health benefits include the fact that implants don’t require damaging adjacent teeth, which is a shortcoming to treatments like a basic dental bridge.

Last a Lifetime

By filling the gap between other teeth, implants help minimize drifting, which refers to the gradual movement of individual teeth into any empty spaces. This also makes oral hygiene easier and reduces the risk of bacterial infections, which include gum disease and tooth decay. Another benefit is that they are permanent and long-lasting. While the crown may need to be replaced every 7 to 15 years, implant fixtures themselves can last a lifetime.

It’s always important to consider that there are risks to the treatment and that there are no absolute guarantees, but implants have a remarkable success rate — 95 to 98 % — over long periods of time, making them preferable over more temporary solutions like dental bridges.

Dental Implants are also Very Stable

Removable dentures, for example, can move around and impede speech. Your implant will never move around and will never fall out of your mouth. You don’t have to worry about your dental implants. They’re like your natural teeth: they will stay in place and remain healthy if you take good care of them.

Speaking of taking care of your tooth implants, did you know that they’re as easy to keep strong and healthy as your natural teeth? Just like real teeth, implants just need to be brushed and flossed, and that their surfaces are cleaned of any food debris. Similarly, just like with your real teeth, it’s highly recommended that you visit a dentist at least twice a year for routine dental cleaning.

Feel Confident with Your Picture-Perfect Smile

Your smile is the centrepiece of your appearance. It’s often the first thing the other person will notice and it can immediately influence their opinion of you. That’s why missing teeth, and dental hygiene problems in general, are often associated with confidence and self-esteem problems. The connection between tooth loss and anxiety, and even depression, has been well and extensively researched, and the fact of the matter is that healthy teeth are associated with happiness.

If you are missing one or more teeth, and dental implants are something that interests you, please call our office anytime. We are happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have, and we invite you to schedule your consultation with Dr. Younes.

Are You a Dental Implant Candidate?

Dental implants are a long-lasting and stunningly natural-looking restorative treatment that can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, and even an entire arch. Their many health and functional benefits have deemed them as the new standard of dental care, and at our Trenton, ON dental implant practice we tend to get asked what it takes to qualify for the treatment quite a bit. We’ve provided this resource to give wonderful patients like you a better understanding of the treatment and how to know whether it’s a good option for you.

It’s always important to keep in mind that only a qualified dentist can truly determine your candidacy for the treatment. If you would like to learn more, we encourage you to schedule your dental implant consultation with Dr. Younes, which you can do by filling out the form on the right or by giving us a call.

“Implantology”, as this art and science is called, requires specialized procedures, instrumentation, and equipment.

Dr. Younes did multiple extra courses, seminars, and hands-on training to be able to perform dental implants at such a high level. During the process, you and Dr. Younes may have many options. You can rest assured that Dr. Younes knows all of these – and can make them clear to you when they come up. For years, Dr. Younes patients have referred friends to him for his expertise, friendly communication, and ability to get results.

Dr. Younes teaches his proprietary techniques to other dentists to help them help their patients better. He performs both the surgical placement and reconstructive phases of implants (placing the teeth themselves). Thus, you do not have to see two or more doctors in two or three different places to get your implant dentistry done. His commitment to “doing it right” and the ability to “handle just about anything” have won him the admiration of patients and other doctors.

Why are dental implants often the first choice and a standard of care compared to other options to restore missing or damaged teeth?

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Built to Last

Dental implants are a long-term solution. Traditional, tooth-supported dental bridges only last five to seven years, and with proper care often more than 10 years, but at some point, they may need to be replaced. While dental implants may need periodic adjustments, they can last a lifetime when properly placed and cared for overtime.

Eat your favorite foods!

Taste and enjoy the foods you love without hesitation. You can bite naturally, eat virtually anything you want and, unlike removable dentures that can feel uncomfortable, you can experience the full taste of the food you eat with dental implants, too. Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures.

Enjoy life without worrying about your teeth

No need to stay home or feel uncomfortable in public, embarrassed because your smile looks different, or worrying that missing teeth will limit your ability to join in the fun or that removable dentures or tooth-supported replacement teeth will loosen or fall out when you talk, eat or laugh. Teeth restored with dental implants are teeth that let you, not your teeth, lead your life.

Retain your natural face shape, and smile

A face without teeth can sag and appear sunken and sad. Dental implants allow you to maintain the natural shape of your face and smile.

Protect healthy bone 

Leaving empty spaces in your mouth after losing one or more teeth can lead to additional health issues, such as the loss and deterioration of some of your jawbone. When it is not being used to support a natural tooth, the jawbone deteriorates, losing its strength and firmness. Dental implants are the only dental restoration option that preserves and stimulates natural bone, actually helping to stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss.

Keep your teeth in your mouth – not in a cup 

Dental implants allow you to keep your teeth where they belong – in your mouth. And no more worrying that your dentures might slip or fall out. Brush, floss and care for teeth that have been replaced using dental implants exactly the way you would natural teeth – in your mouth.

What does getting dental implants involve?

The process of getting implants requires a number of visits over several months.

X-rays and impressions (molds) are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant. While the area is numb, the implant will be surgically placed into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate itself for up to six months. Depending on the type of implant, a second surgery may be required in order to place the “post” that will hold the artificial tooth in place. With other implants the post and anchor are already attached and placed at the same time.

After several weeks of healing the artificial teeth are made and fitted to the post portion of the anchor. Because several fittings may be required, this step may take one to two months to complete. After a healing period, the artificial teeth are securely attached to the implant, providing excellent stability and comfort to the patient.

You will receive care instructions when your treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene and eating habits, alongside regular dental visits, will aid in the life of your new implant.
