Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) June 09, 2015
Patients who need dental implants in Ottawa, ON, can now schedule an appointment with Drs. Cameron Jones and Gordon Schwartz of GumDocs Periodontics, without first receiving a referral. Missing teeth can be uncomfortable and unattractive, but dental implants can help patients get their healthy-looking smiles back once again. Additionally, implants are imbedded into the jawbone, which indicates that they offer superior strength and durability when compared to other short-term treatment options for lost teeth.
Missing teeth can affect anyone at any time. Car accidents, sports injuries, gum disease, and several other situations can cause individuals to lose one or more of their teeth. Due to the relative discomfort and expense associated with some short-term treatment options, many patients do not seek immediate treatment for their missing teeth. Unfortunately, delaying treatment may decrease a person’s candidacy for implants because the jawbone starts to disintegrate soon after a tooth is lost. If the jawbone disintegrates too much, dental implants in Ottawa, ON, may not be a viable option.
In some situations, bone-grafting procedures may be recommended if a patient does not have sufficient bone mass to support an implant. Patients are more likely to have a smooth and hassle-free implant experience if they seek treatment soon after they lose a tooth. GumDocs Periodontics is pleased to be able to help patients with one or more lost teeth by offering implant treatment options without requiring a referral. This makes it easier for patients to receive the implants they require, without the hassle or inconvenience of trying to attain a recommendation beforehand.
Implants are great alternatives to bridges and dentures because they do not cause damage to adjacent teeth, nor will they not fall out of the mouth during common activities such as speaking or chewing. Patients who properly care for their implants can expect them to last for many years and to simulate the function of natural teeth. Implants also prevent accelerated deterioration of bone-loss in the jaw, because they stimulate the jawbone, similar to that of the roots of natural teeth.
GumDocs Periodontics encourages individuals with missing teeth to find out if they are ideal candidates for dental implants in Ottawa, ON. Prospective patients can easily schedule a consultation by calling GumDocs Periodontics and speaking with an office assistant.
