Teeth can be lost due to many reasons including dental caries (tooth decay or cavities), accidents or diseases. When teeth are lost, bone loss (bone resorption) progressively occurs in the jaw and could cause major complications if not treated.

Dental implants are one of the best methods for replacing lost or missing teeth. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is submerged into the jawbone in the form of a small titanium screw. The screw acts as the foundation or prosthetic tooth root for a new artificial tooth. By using dental implants, the bone loss can be treated and further complications prevented. In some cases the progressive nature of the bone resorption might result in the patient having to undergo a bone graft before the dental implant can be fitted.

Whether you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth, dental implant treatment requires careful planning to ensure high success of the treatment outcome. Your dentist may require information such as radiographs (x-rays), medical reports, study models and photographs to assess and provide the best treatment for each individual patient.

It is never too embarrassing to ask one of our experienced dentists about replacing missing or lost teeth during your consultation. At MC Dental, we aim to provide our patients with useful information, and make the process as comfortable as possible.
