Trust Us for Quality Dental Implants in Waterdown

Tooth loss is a more common problem than you think. There can be multiple reasons for tooth loss, such as gum disease, cavities and decay, or traumatic injuries. If you are missing a tooth, or several teeth, dental implants are one of the best options to restore your natural teeth' feel, function and appearance.

What Are Dentures?

In simpler terms, dentures can be understood as temporary teeth replacements. They come in full and partial sets and are ideal for use by people whose teeth are missing in sets instead of individual missing teeth throughout the mouth. Since they are removable, they are often considered the ideal choice for people with unhealthy or weak jaws.


Types of Dentures

There are broadly two types of dentures that can assist you in getting your beautiful smile back. Based on your dental condition, you can choose from:

  • Full dentures
    When the patient is missing multiple teeth, particularly at one level of your mouth, you can proceed with full dentures. For instance, in cases where the patient is missing several teeth on the top half and a few on the bottom half, then a full denture is an appropriate solution.

    Our experienced dentist Dr. Frank Despond will inform you about your dental treatment at the time of consultation. After this, our team will make a customized, removable set of dentures for you.

  • Partial dentures
    These are used when you are missing just a few teeth and do not qualify for full denture treatment at the time of consultation. Partial dentures come with a thin, flesh-coloured plate that fits at the roof of your mouth, while a prosthetic tooth is placed at its base. Even though it may sound complex, it is comfortable and fully functioning.


After undergoing your denture treatment, you can enjoy some amazing benefits like improvement in eating, talking, chewing and relief from pain. Call now and say yes to natural-looking dentures!


What Are Dental Implants?

Permanent teeth replacements are called dental implants. While getting dental implants, a titanium screw is placed in the jawbone. After this, the abutment, i.e. a connector between the implant and the crown, and the crown are placed. Ideally, dental implants are used for people with individual missing teeth.


Dental implants are used for replacing one tooth to installing a complete set of upper and lower teeth. Single dental implants look like a tooth on the end of a screw and are made from metals that can bond with your body quickly.


Certain factors are taken into consideration while determining the patient's suitability for the treatment. For instance, the overall condition of the mouth, damage to the gums surrounding the teeth, or the requirement of any additional surgery. There are very few chances for other surgeries until the patient has a severe dental condition.


Dental Implants: Frequently Asked Questions, Answered!

We have answers to some of your doubts regarding dental implants:


How Much Does Implant Treatment Cost?

The cost of implant treatment depends upon how long the treatment continues. Your dentist will perform a thorough examination of teeth and recommend the estimated cost.


Do Implants Last Long? How Long Can They Last?

Implants can be long-lasting depending on your oral habits and dental cleanings. Regular checkups must be done to ensure the success of implants in the long run.


Is the Implant Procedure Painful?

Sometimes, the treatment can cause sensitive gums for a few days. You may face mild discomfort, but most patients will not need any pain killers and can return to routine life the very next day.


Dentures vs Implants

At Despond Dental Centre in Waterdown, we understand that there are several factors that might influence you when choosing an appropriate dental solution. While making a choice between dental implants vs dentures, here are a few things you should keep in mind:

  • Dental Implants are permanent while dentures are removable.

  • Dental implants are easier to maintain than dentures.

  • With dental implants, you are likely to require far fewer visits to the dentist.

  • Dental implants are usually more comfortable and look more natural.


The final choice between dental implants and dentures, however, will depend on your specific case. Thus, we invite you to speak to us first before making the final choice.
