Most people use dentures to replace their missing teeth, but at Richmond periodontal practice, Apple Implant Dental Centre, implants are the first option considered. "We gently install a titanium screw directly into the jawbone, and that becomes the foundation for the crown we put in place," explains Oakridge cosmetic dentist, Dr. Shivji. "But we don't need always need to put in a separate screw for each missing tooth, because we can put in dentures that are stabilized by the screws."
Among the many obvious benefits of tooth implants is that they look and feel much more natural than dentures. These are permanent fixtures unlike dentures that are detachable.
"Our patients say that they feel like real teeth in their mouths, so they don't lisp and they're not afraid that they will accidentally detach while they're speaking to someone," reveals Vancouver periodontist, Dr. Shivji. "In one survey, in which real teeth were given a grade of ten by patients, tooth implants got a score of nine in terms of patient satisfaction. Meanwhile, dentures rated a dismal two in the survey."
The tooth implants also provide a crucial function in preventing bone loss, according to Dr. Shivji.
"When people lose a tooth, the portion of the bone in that spot is no longer being used and that leads to bone loss eventually," reveals Dr. Shivji. "Our tooth implants on the other hand are inserted directly into the jawbone, so there's no bone loss and sunken cheeks as a result."
In many cases, the tooth implants can last for decades and perhaps for the rest of the life of the patient. Dr. Shivji likes to tell the story of the patient who received tooth implants. "That first patient got his tooth implants back in 1965, and it worked for him until he passed away in 2006," reports Dr. Shivji. "If you do the math, that's 41 years of continuous function. Can you imagine how well made the new tooth implants we have now?" For further information, contact Apple Dental Implant Centre.
