Complete your smile with dental implants in Brampton, ON
A missing tooth is more than just a cosmetic problem. Functionally, your teeth may shift causing your bite to change. Bone loss is also possible. Losing a tooth can be a traumatic experience, but it doesn’t have to be. Let Dr. Azeem Sheikh in Brampton, ON help restore the health, function, and appearance of your teeth and mouth. Brampton Dental Arts offers a variety of treatment options from replacing a single tooth, multiple teeth, stabilizing dentures and using full mouth dental implants to improve and restore your smile and function.
Dental implants are essentially posts that replace missing teeth roots. They are precisely positioned in place of the lost roots. An implant provides a secure, sturdy base for a dental restoration. Implants are a great option to restore and maintain the health and appearance of the mouth. Often times, Dr. Sheikh can place the implant the SAME DAY as the tooth extraction, saving both time and surgery. Advantages of implants include:
- Stable – Dental implants are stable, durable restorations. They can last a lifetime with proper care.
- Bone health – When a tooth is lost, the root is no longer in place to stimulate the bone. This can lead to bone loss. Implants replace the roots to stimulate and maintain the health of the jawbone.
- Aesthetically pleasing – Topped with a dental restoration, implants improve the function and aesthetics of a smile marred by missing teeth.
Full mouth dental implants
No two smiles are the same or have the same dental problems. Dr. Sheikh treats each patient individually. An examination and x-rays may be needed to create a custom treatment plan. This appointment gives him the opportunity to assess your teeth, bone, and mouth for any damage. Functionality of the mouth including the health of the gums, bite, and decay are assessed.
Many patients assume dentures or bridges are the only way to replace multiple missing teeth. Now, dental implants can be placed to save your smile. Our teeth have roots and crowns. The roots are not visible as they sit below the gumline. They stimulate the jawbone, anchor the tooth in place, and keep adjacent teeth from shifting. Tooth replacement with implants requires the dental implant, abutment, and a dental restoration such as a crown, bridge, or denture. Depending on the patient’s need, 3 to 4 implants may be used to replace a few teeth. 6 to 8 implants may be used to support a full arch of new teeth.
Dr. Sheikh has placed more than 3,000 dental implants and provides mentorship to other doctors. Every step of the dental implant process is performed on-site which assures patients the comfort and convenience of seeing familiar faces throughout the procedure as well as the confidence in receiving quality care and restorations. Bone grafting and anesthesia services are also provided on site. Patients who do not have adequate bone structure may need a bone graft prior to receiving a tooth implant. Bone grafts strengthen the jawbone, so it is able to support a dental implant. The bone graft is done before the implant is placed. If you are scared of bone grafting – DON’T BE. Dr. Sheikh routinely uses bone graft materials and mixes it with your blood to ensure there is no risk of rejection. Whether you need a single implant or a full mouth, comprehensive treatments are available at Brampton Dental Arts.
