If you are missing a tooth, you are likely feeling self-conscious about your smile. However, are you aware that having a missing tooth is not only an aesthetic issue?
The functional purposes of teeth are to provide a surface for chewing, to keep other teeth aligned within the mouth, and to help maintain the structure of our jaw bones.

At York Mills Dental, Dr. Ching and her staff are offering our patients dental implants to prevent these problems from occuring. A dental implant is designed as a small titanium prosthesis, or post, that is surgically placed below the gums.

There are a variety of dental implants available to patients. If you are looking to improve your smile and think dental implants may be the right choice for you, please book a free consultation at our York Mills Dental office located in North Toronto.
