An incomplete smile can make daily life difficult, from chewing favorite foods to speaking clearly. You may even feel embarrassed to smile, keeping your lips tightly closed when inside you’d love nothing more than to laugh with your friends and family again. Missing teeth can also create roadblocks to good oral health and steal your quality of life.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants now provide a more natural option to replace missing teeth. During a short oral surgery, a small titanium post is implanted into the jawbone beneath the gum line. As the dental implant heals, your bone naturally fuses with the post, creating a root, just as nature intended. A handcrafted, all-porcelain crown is then attached to the post, completing your tooth, and your smile. Dr. Riazi will provide a thorough examination to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. You’ll then be referred to a trusted oral surgeon for placement of the post. After your surgery and healing are complete, you’ll return to our Markhamack location for placement of the crown.
