Dental Implants in Burlington Myths Versus Facts

June 15, 2022by admin

Dental implants in Burlington are designed to replace your missing original teeth. These artificial replacements are attached to your jaw bone. These are attached with artificial roots.

Being well-informed will help you to make the right decision. A big part of that is being able to separate myth from fact when it comes to dental implants.

Myth. Dental implants require special care after they’ve been placed.

Fact. You’ll only need to follow regular oral hygiene practices to keep implants looking great.  Of course that means flossing and brushing on a daily basis. Regular check-ups are another excellent idea as well as oral exams and professional cleanings.

In the end, dental implants require less maintenance than dentures or dental bridges.

Myth.  Your implants won’t look like your regular teeth and people will notice they aren’t natural.

Fact: The fact is dental implants in Burlington look the most like your original teeth. Once the healing process is complete, people can’t tell the implant from a natural tooth. The crown that gets fitted at the end of the procedure is the same shade as your natural teeth.

Myth: Dental implants have many long-term risks that can affect your health.

Fact: The procedure does require surgery. However, the risks associated are minor. They usually only include things like some minor discomfort and swollen gums. However, your dentist will usually prescribe some and medications that alleviate some of these risks.

Myth: Dental implants in Burlington take a long time to heal.

Fact: The implant itself takes several months to fuse with the patient’s jawbone. Usually there’s no discomfort involved.

Myth:  Tooth implants usually fail.

Fact:  The rate of failure for dental implants is extremely low when it’s done by a qualified professional. Most of them are made of materials like biocompatible titanium. That means there’s very little rest can hardly any chance of them being rejected by your body

The service is excellent by all the staff and Dr Cohen is by far the best dentist that I have ever been to. He is knowledgeable and experienced and ensures that you are comfortable while he is working on your teeth. Many people are concerned with the freezing process when having work done, but Dr. Cohen is so good that you will literally not feel anything. I would highly recommend Dr. Cohen.

There is no joy living with bad teeth. Less joy understanding how expensive help can be. Most centres are more concerned with money, rather than the patient. Lakeside, Dr. Cohen and the team, are amazing. Why? Because they put me first. Are honest with options and realistic treatment. They want the same thing that I have wanted for years, to see me smile again. I believe in their team, their approach and their desire to make a difference for every patient. They have my trust.

Dr Michael did a great job on my first implant. I was so impressed with the high level of personal service that I transferred my account from a dentist where I had a 20+ year relationship. I feel Lakeshore Dental can serve me better as I need more crowns and implants. The office is clean, spacious and as safe as any business can be. I recommend Dr Michael and his excellent and very friendly support team

I was recommended this dental office by a coworker, I've had many dentists before that didn't understand how sensitive my teeth actually are and since my very first appointment here I knew I finally found the one. They are extremely friendly, very knowledgeable and will answer any questions you might have. Very professional and clean environment. They bill your insurance directly which is a huge relief, I'm so happy to have a dentist I can trust. They are so gentle, you also don't feel the needles going in! This is the first dental office where I didn't feel ANY pain whatsoever. I cannot say enough good things about them.
