Dental Implants

Don’t Make These Mistakes When Looking Into Dental Implants:

Mistake #1: Not being cautious enough when comparing practices. Not every dental practice that claims they provide dental implants actually performs the surgery in-house. For many patients, that means getting comfortable with the staff at a dental practice only to be referred out to a third-party for the actual dental implant surgery. This is extremely disappointing for patients who have built a relationship with their dental provider and have grown comfortable within a particular practice. Royal Square Dental performs in-house dental implant surgery for the convenience and comfort of our patients. We invite you to visit our ‘Dental Implants’ section to learn more about our services.

Mistake #2: Not looking into all options before choosing a dental procedure to address missing teeth. With new technology comes newer methods of tooth replacement. More than 1 million Canadians alone have opted for dental implants- and it’s no mystery as to why. Implants serve important cosmetic and functional purposes that are unable to be met by any other type of method for replacing teeth. When you schedule an appointment at our Royal Square Dental practice, we’ll help you assess your needs and determine whether you’re a candidate for dental implant surgery.

Mistake #3: Thinking that the higher cost of implants means less value. In truth, dental implants are the greater value, since they can be considered a longer-term solution to tooth replacement. Implants last a lot longer than other options and provide a better experience when eating, chewing and speaking. No other option looks or functions as naturally as dental implants. In the long run, you’ll find that paying a little more up front will be well worth it when compared with all other options. When taken proper care of, dental implants are designed as a lifelong solution to missing teeth.

Mistake #4: Not understanding the full implications of what implants can do for your oral health. Dental implants do a lot more than simply fill in the empty space where a tooth once existed. Implants keep adjacent teeth from shifting, which can cause a host of problems with dental heath. When teeth shift, it impacts your ability to chew, affects your bite, and negatively impacts your appearance. Replacing a missing tooth with a dental bridge can cause damage to adjacent teeth from constant erosion to the tooth enamel. Implants are the natural choice for patients looking for a superior product.

Compare dental implants with traditional dentures and implants will come out on top every time. Implants deliver a stronger and more stable fit, do not require adhesive or pastes to keep them in place, do not have to be removed for cleaning, will never slip when eating or speaking, do not emit sounds like the clicking dentures are associated with, and protect the integrity of your facial structure. Feel free to contact our staff at Royal Square Dental to find out if you’re a candidate for dental implants. We are proud to provide in-house oral surgery for implants that ensures your complete comfort during the entire procedure.
