With restorative dentistry, dental professionals are able to replace teeth that have been lost by using a variety of different services and procedures, including dental implants, crowns & bridges, and dentures – all of which we offer at our dental clinic on the Danforth, near Greektown.
Dental implants are the most ideal choice of tooth replacement because they essentially look, feel and function just like a natural tooth. Because dental implants are implanted into the jaw and permanently become one with the bone, they are capable of lasting a lifetime with adequate care. Restorations with dental implants also help to prevent future oral complications like the shifting of teeth or premature aging of the face due to loss of jaw bone mass.
A dental bridge contains two or more prosthetic teeth (called “pontics”) that are attached by two replacement teeth caps (called “abutments”) on either ends. The abutments anchor on to the patient’s existing teeth on either ends of the gap in order to restore appearance and function to this area. The artificial teeth and caps are very natural-looking, blending well with the rest of the teeth.
Dentures are a great option for patients who have lost all or most of their teeth, as they truly help to improve overall quality of life. Dentures can be either partial or full/complete, and serve many purposes – including improving speech, making it easier to chew and digest, and improving the facial appearance and confidence of the patient.
