(Health-NewsWire.Net, March 29, 2015 ) Vancouver, BC -- Losing a tooth is typically not an issue, unless a patient refuses to have it replaced. Then it becomes a precursor to a wide variety of potential health hazards. But with dental implants from La Vita Dental, many Kitsilano patients have managed to avoid all these possible health consequences of missing teeth. La Vita Dental is a foremost expert on dental implants in Kitsilano.
"At La Vita Dental, we make sure that we place the best types of dental implants on our Kitsilano patients when their teeth come out," asserted Kits dentist Dr. Chelsea Mansfield, who is an expert in employing Cerec CAD/CAM technology so that high-quality crowns and restorations are produced very quickly. "We screen patients for our dental fixture services. We check if the gums are in good health, and if the gums and jawbones are sufficiently strong and dense enough to support tooth implants."
Missing teeth can be a detriment to social interactions, because many patients feel self-conscious about the gaps in their teeth when they smile. This can affect their many aspects of their lives.
"But the damage of missing teeth goes far beyond the quality of the smile," said Vancouver dentist Dr. Mansfield, "the gap caused by missing teeth attracts bacteria that can lead to oral disease. The teeth adjacent to the gap can grow into the space, which can then lead to uneven bits that can affect chewing and speech. Gums that don't have teeth are more prone to recede or become infected."
Tooth implants are a superior solution to the problem when compared to simpler dentures. "The Vancouver teeth implant procedure starts with the insertion of a titanium screw through the gums and into the jawbone," said Dr. Mansfield, "this helps provide a stable and secure foundation for the replacement teeth, so that it won't come lose when chewing or when speaking. It's more secure than detachable dentures that can come loose in the most inopportune times."
"After that, a crown is carefully and securely fastened to the screw," she added, "at La Vita Dental Centre, this crown has been meticulously prepared so that the shape is exactly right. The shape offers efficient function for chewing, and at the same time it also looks natural. To help with this natural look, the color is also the same as the other natural teeth remaining in the mouth."
Dental implants feel very natural, and many patients in Kitsilano have admitted that sometimes they forget that the teeth aren't natural at all. They don't feel strange or uncomfortable, and they don't have to be taken out at night like dentures. Contact this Kits dental implant practice for more information today.
