Credit Creek Dental offers implant dentistry as an alternative treatment choice.

When all options to save a tooth are eliminated, or dental stability is compromised, we will offer you a full and comprehensive review of what implants mean for your overall health to the cost and to post-operative care of the implants.

A dental implant is a small man-made titanium screw that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. The implant is placed in the bone of the upper or lower jaw and allowed to integrate and become part of the bone and serve as an anchor for the replacement tooth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. Implant-supported replacement teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth. Dental implants are a proven restorative option with a long clinical history.

Dental implants preserve the integrity of the facial structure and reduce the inconvenience and cosmetic disadvantages associated with tooth and bone loss. If you have a denture or partial, implants can be used to enhance the stability of the dentures and may help improve and restore your confidence.

Anyone who is missing one or more of their teeth due to injury, disease or decay may be a candidate for dental implants. If one, a few or all teeth are missing, dental implants in conjunction with a crown or bridge can replace those teeth. Occasionally, older patients express concern that their age may prevent them from enjoying the benefits that dental implants offer. However, health is more of a determining factor than age. If you’re healthy enough to have a tooth extracted, you’re probably healthy enough to receive dental implants.

At Credit Creek Dental Orangeville, you will be taken through the steps, shown how the implants work and discuss how they can help you smile again.
