Dental Implant Treatment in Hamilton

For most individuals, it is difficult to appreciate the debilitating nature of tooth loss. Only by listening to the stories of our denture patients on a regular basis can we truly understand their difficulties.

Many people relay stories of avoiding certain foods they can no longer enjoy. Avoiding social functions is another common phenomenon, whether it is due to fear of trying to eat in public, or the possible embarrassment of loose dentures falling while talking. Research has even shown that denture wearers are more prone to chronic diseases due to changes in their diet.

Advances in dental research and dental implant technologies offer some hope if you are a denture wearer in Hamilton looking for treatment options. In fact, using only two dental implants can be enough to secure a loose lower denture, and improve chewing efficiency by up to 50 %. This type of denture is known as an overdenture; a 'snap-on' denture which snaps on and off of two dental implants. However, with as few as 4 dental implants, more dramatic results can be achieved.

A new set of fixed permanent teeth can be secured permanently by using a procedure called All-on-4. The All-on-4 dental implant approach even allows for removal of existing teeth and immediate placement of new fixed permanent teeth in just one day. 'New teeth in one day' is a viable option for denture wearers, as well as those who currently have their own teeth.

The Hamilton area has many local dentists and denturists who can fabricate partial and full dentures to replace missing teeth. But, as discussed above, despite the best efforts of these talented clinicians even the best denture will never replace your natural teeth. And while basic denture and implant therapies are widely available in Hamilton, the more advanced implant solutions such as All-on-4 ('New teeth in a day') are less widely available.
