How Smoking Affects Dental Implants

Despite many Canadian Government Health Department attempts to reduce it, smoking is still a widespread behavior in the population today. Generally, it has adversely affected the health of millions of people all over the world. However, at Canadian Denture and Implant Centres we are mostly concerned with oral health; smoking increases the risks of developing periodontal disease, peri-implantitis, root caries, and cancerous lesions. It is also known to cause stained teeth(and dentures), delayed healing of wounds after orthognathic surgery, periodontal procedure and extractions. The success of a dental implant relies on numerous factors which include: good surgery, good prosthesis, and proper maintenance. Studies show that dental implants typically have a high success rate and failures happen at a low rate and then only when there is a risk factor. The determining factors for implant success or failure include general patient health status, quality and quantity of bone, smoking habits, oral…

How to Correct Dental Implants that Sit Higher than your Natural Teeth

When you lose your natural teeth, the gum and bone in that area begin to shrink. Placing dental implants in such areas requires careful replacement of those tissues in the skilled hands of a denturist to avoid complications. The procedure is particularly tricky when performed in the front of the mouth, since an implant that is placed too shallow or too deep can create a cosmetic mishap – in the form of a long tooth and black triangles in some cases. The cosmetic concerns of poorly placed front dental implants mostly affect patients with a high smile line – when your smile shows more of your gums than usual. Such cosmetic failures are less noticeable for patients with a low smile line. So, how can this problem be corrected? It  can be challenging to correct a dental implant that sits higher than your natural teeth without any additional work, because…

What is a dental bridge and what are the types of bridges

Dental bridges, also referred to as fixed removable dentures, are made to fill in one or more spaces in your mouth left by lost teeth. Depending on your specific case, they can be supported by: • Natural teeth • Implants • A combination of teeth and implants How a bridge is done A dental bridge is so called because it literally fills (bridges) the gaps left behind when you lose teeth. A typical bridge consists of one or more artificial teeth (pontics) that are held in place by two abutments (dental crowns). If the supporting teeth being crowned are strong and healthy, they won’t need root canal therapy. However, parts of the teeth must be removed to create space for the crowns. Basically, your denturist files down the 2 healthy teeth on either side of the gap to prepare them for the bridge. But if your teeth are not healthy…

Is There Bone Loss with Delayed Implant Placement?

Conventional tooth rehabilitation treatments such as fixed partial dentures, removable partial dentures, and composite retained inlay partial dentures are associated with a number of problems related to stability and retention of prosthesis, esthetics, eating difficulties, and even psychological problems. Besides the risk of complications, these treatments also involve the damage of healthy adjacent teeth, plus they don’t stimulate the underlying jawbone to prevent bone loss. Because of these challenges, patients often suffer reduced self-confidence and develop psychological problems. Fortunately, implants have addressed most of these challenges, while allowing for immediate restoration after tooth extraction so patients can continue with their normal life without having to suffer the psychological trauma of being toothless. Immediate implants also offer the benefit of reduced treatment time. While implants help to prevent bone loss by facilitating bone regeneration, some patients are concerned that delayed placement – implant placement after the soft tissue has healed completely…
