What makes losing a tooth such a big deal? The consequences include gum and jaw bone recession and the drifting of adjacent teeth. A gapped smile changes how both you and those around you view your personal appearance. What can you do about the gaps in your smile?Dental Implants

Explore the dental implant. Dr. Bharat Singh Dulat and his associate dentists at Dental Designs in Winnipeg, Manitoba, offer this modern tooth replacement option to fill the spaces in your smile - permanently and beautifully. Plus, the dental implant encourages the strength and density of underlying jaw structure.

Sounds too amazing to be true? It's not. The dental implant has been around for decades and offers patients:

  • lasting beauty
  • natural speaking and eating
  • freedom from dentures
  • longevity and stability
  • a success rate as high as 98 percent (according to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry)

Placement of a Dental Implant

The dental implant fills an empty tooth socket with an artificial root made of titanium, and it completes a smile above the gum line with a perfectly designed and crafted crown. Surgically placed into a precise hole drilled into the jaw, the implant melds with the bone through a natural process called osseointegration. After several weeks of healing, the implant is attached to an abutment, which supports the porcelain crown. Then your Winnipeg, MB dentist completes the procedure by adjusting fit and bite.

The Versatile Implant

Dr. Bharat Singh Dulat and his associates, Drs. Monica Arora and Eraldo Batista, offer dental implants to patients in good general health and who are free from gum disease or other oral health problems. If a patient lacks sufficient jaw bone density to accept an implant, your Winnipeg, Manitoba dentists employ bone augmentation procedures to build a solid base.

Implants serve to replace one or more teeth, to anchor bridgework, or to support fixed or removable dentures. Patients testify that their implants look, feel and function just as though they were natural teeth. Perhaps best of all, they simply smile more once they feel confident in how great their smile looks.

Dental Implants Pros Cons Winnipeg ManitobaAre Dental Implants Right For You?

Dental implants have become a popular way to replace missing teeth, as they promise a longer life than other cosmetic treatments. Plus, dental implants offer a variety of benefits including improving smiles, promoting bone growth and preventing bone loss, maintaining the face’s natural shape, and increasing self-esteem. If you are suffering from dental loss, then you may feel self-conscious about your smile; however, dental implants can help you regain your smile and your confidence. If you are looking for a sturdy, long-term solution to tooth loss, getting dental implants in Winnipeg might be the best treatment option for your smile.
 

Dental Implant Pros & Cons

You may currently be weighing the pros and cons of dental implants with other more conservative treatments like dentures and dental bridges. While every treatment has its advantages and disadvantages, dental implants do seem to offer more freedom.
 

Reasons Why You Might Want To Consider Dental Implants:

  • If you are missing one or more teeth
  • If your dentures just aren’t comfortable
  • If you already have a dental bridge
To prevent bone loss, the best choice you can make it to replace this missing tooth as soon as possible. Dental implants can make speaking, chewing and smiling significantly easier. Plus, they are built to last, so you don’t have to worry about having to come into the office multiple times for repairs or adjustments.
 

Dental Implants Versus Dentures

Unlike dentures, dental implants don’t need to be removed. You can clean your implants just as you would your normal teeth, and no extra or special care is required. Plus, since dental implants are surgically embedded into the jawbone, you don’t have to worry about slippage while eating or talking.
 
If you already have a dental bridge, you could benefit from implant-supported bridges that don’t need the support of neighboring teeth to function properly. This is particularly advantageous to those with several missing teeth.
