Losing Your Smile?

Get It Back, and Much More

If you’ve lost teeth, or are about to have some extracted, you’re facing many new limitations. You might only be able to eat soft foods because eating anything else causes you discomfort. You might not be able to speak clearly and naturally. You can smile but the idea embarrasses you—especially if the missing teeth are in your smile zone. Your face may even take on a sunken, aged appearance if your tooth loss leads to bone recession.

There are many solutions to recover your smile, including dental bridges and dental implants, which offer the function and aesthetics of real teeth, jaw protection, and unequaled longevity. You may be surprised at how quickly you’re able to eat, speak, laugh, and smile again once your teeth are replaced by our team at Smile Again Dental. If you have failing or missing teeth in Hamilton, ON, reach out, we’ll help you find the tooth replacement solution you need for a complete, confident, and healthy smile.

Life with Missing Teeth

Why Replace Damaged or Missing Teeth?

If treatment like root canals, gum disease treatment, and restorative dentistry are ineffective, damaged, infected, and failing teeth, should be removed to protect your dental health and even systemic health. Unless they’re wisdom teeth or extra teeth that are causing overcrowding in your mouth, most teeth should be replaced after removal. Apart from the ways tooth loss can decrease your quality of life, it can also trigger a sort of “domino effect” in your health. Without natural tooth roots stimulating healthy bone growth, your bone will begin to deteriorate beneath the empty tooth socket. This will spread and can even lead to additional tooth loss in adjacent teeth. Replacing your tooth before extensive bone loss can occur will help prevent unnecessary additional harm as well as the need for bone grafting procedures. If your bone is stable enough or has received bone reconstructive treatment, you’ll have the option between dental bridges, dentures, and dental implants for your new, complete smile.

Remedies for Missing Teeth

For one missing tooth or a series of missing teeth, dental bridges are frequently the first solution many patients think of. Dental bridges are made of a series of crowns that span the gap left behind by tooth loss. Requiring one or more adjacent teeth as the foundation of the bridge, called the abutment teeth, this solution requires that we remove some of the enamel of this tooth, or teeth, when placing your dental bridge. Once placed, this solution is aesthetic and prevents adjacent teeth from shifting.

Dentures are a time-tested, economical solution to tooth loss. They fit over your gums and stay in place either through suction or adhesive creams but can also be removed. You can have full or partial dentures; full dentures cover entire arches of teeth, essentially replacing all your teeth while partial dentures take the place of a few missing teeth in a row or throughout an arch.

For additional stability, dentures can be anchored in your jawbone by dental implants. Implant supported dentures won’t slip out of place or irritate your gums and offer healthy bone stimulation. They also enable you to eat a greater variety of foods than standard dentures do.

The best overall tooth replacement option available today is dental implants. They are the most natural-looking solution that can also last decades with proper care. Dental implants can replace one tooth, multiple teeth, or a full arch of teeth. Comprised partly of artificial tooth roots, they protect your jawbone from deterioration and thus your facial shape from changing. What’s more, they allow you to eat anything you want—hard foods, sticky foods, chewy foods, and whatever your favorites might be.

Hi, I’m Dr. Michael Ling

Do you feel like no matter what you do, dentistry just doesn’t seem to work in your mouth?

Almost all of the people I meet have major dental problems, and have just about given up on dentistry… and dentists.

They’re tired of getting the same teeth fixed over and over and over again, and never making any progress.

They’re frustrated that no matter what they do, their teeth keep breaking and getting cavities.

And they’re sick of feeling judged and shamed every time they visit the dentist… as if it’s THEIR fault that their teeth are failing them.

Well… I’m here to promise you that there is hope for you.

If you’re ready to break the cycle of dental problems so you can finally smile again… we’ve got your back!

• You CAN have a smile that’s free from discomfort and embarrassment.

• You CAN eat whatever you want, without worrying about chewing your food or your teeth falling out.

• You CAN avoid dentures, and give yourself teeth that are rock-solid, permanent, and never need to be removed

How am I so confident? Because today’s dentistry has come so far that we can find a solution to ANY problem. Sometimes it’s harder, or takes longer, or requires some creative problem solving… but I can promise you that if it’s important enough to you, we can make it happen.

Hi, I’m Dr. Sorana Schneider

My promise to you: NO judgment and NO lectures… EVER.

Are you feeling frustrated by all the information out there about fixing your teeth?

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and confused when you start talking to dentists or looking into your options for getting your smile back on track.

There’s too much dental terminology. Too many complicated treatment plans. Too much pressure to go ahead with treatment you don’t want or care about.

Well… I believe getting the smile you want should be easy.

It should be easy to understand what’s going on in your mouth… without needing a dental degree or dictionary.

Easy to know which options are a good idea for you… and which ones you might regret later on.

And easy to get what YOU want… not what your dentist thinks you SHOULD want.

My promise to you: NO judgment and NO lectures.

What you will find is a customized action plan to get you eating and smiling with confidence again, and that plan is the one that’s the best balance between what you want, what you need, and what you can afford.

If that sounds good to you… I can’t wait to meet you in person!
