What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants refer to a dental procedure to replace a broken, damaged or lost tooth without harming the other teeth around the gap. It is a replacement root for a new tooth that your Hamilton, ON dentist uses to attach a replacement tooth into your mouth. Essentially, it is a metal or titanium post that is surgically placed into your gums and jaw to hold a replacement tooth.

At Centre Mall Dental, we offer dental implants as a solution to help with your smile and the health of your jaw. Since a lost tooth allows your teeth to move and shift over time, you want to address the loss as quickly as possible. We provide different options based on the underlying cause of the problem and the severity of the break. Our clinic provides service to residents in Hamilton, Mississauga and Oakville when you lose a tooth or have questions about your treatment options.

When to Consider Implants

Implants are not always the solution you need for your teeth, so identifying when to consider the treatment allows you to make an educated decision. Generally, the treatment is best when you've lost the entire tooth, including the root, and need an anchor for a replacement tooth. We may suggest using the implant when you have a tooth root, but do not have enough material for alternative treatments. We also use the treatment for large gaps rather than a small gap.

It is not the appropriate option when you have a small gap in your teeth or a minor crack and break on the tooth. Chipped teeth or broken teeth with enough root material for other options may not require an implant unless you decide other treatment options do not meet your needs.
