Looking for Dental Implants in Toronto?August 8, 2012
Have you been searching for a Toronto dentist who provides dental implants in Toronto? Dr. Edward Gelfand provides various treatments including immediate dental implants, often referred to as tooth-in-a-day, and implant supported dentures.
Patients choose Dawson Dental for their immediate implants for these reasons:
- 0% financing
- Same-day tooth placement opportunity for 25-35% of our patients
- Minimized integration and healing time (6 weeks instead of 6 months)
For some patients, they opt to support their denture using mini dental implants. This is a another great option so you can continue eating a full diet including steak, corn on the cob and apples. The implants provide a solid support so the denture is locked into place and won’t drift as they sometimes do without the added support.
Did you know?
A recent dental study has revealed that people with full or partial dentures tend to eat more processed foods and higher levels of saturated fats and cholesterol. Conversely, people with a full set of teeth generally consume fewer calories and eat more vegetables and fiber with less cholesterol and saturated fats. Why? Scientists suggest that people who wear dentures may eat more to compensate for loss of taste or their inability to eat a variety of foods. The link between high cholesterol, high fat diets lacking in fiber, and increased risk of heart disease is well known and should be a concern for denture wearers.
