Implant Dentistry

A Note From Dr. Shilpesh Parekh About Implants

Losing a tooth, especially your front tooth can be devastating, not just physically but emotionally. Whether we are dealing with hockey players, entertainers or moms and teenagers… losing a tooth is a dental emergency where quick action can mean the difference between losing and saving that tooth.

Dental implants are now the standard of care for missing teeth in most situations. Despite our latest techniques and best efforts, sometimes a tooth is not reparable and needs to be extracted. This is when a patient as an adult has to come to terms with losing that front tooth.

Luckily a dental implant can be placed to appear as if you never lost your tooth and give you back your confidence and smile!

Benefits of a dental implant

One of the most significant breakthroughs in dentistry in the last 20 years has been the invention and development of dental implants. The discovery that pure titanium actually fuses to bone has lead to an incredible range of tooth replacement options.

An implant essentially replaces a tooth root. Once the implant is placed and fused to bone, it can be used in a number of different ways. The most common is to build a crown on top of the implant to replace a missing tooth. Implants can also have attachments on them that allow dentures to snap into place, holding them more securely than clasps.
