Dental Implants

Missing teeth can mean self-consciousness while smiling, impairments in speech and difficulty eating. Now there's a solution to your ongoing oral health woes, and we are proud to offer dental implants in NE Calgary. A dental implant is a small titanium fixture that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. The titanium surface of the implant is capable of bonding to bone. This bond is very strong and durable. Once the implant is placed and healing time is allowed, a crown is fabricated and placed on top of the implant that fills the missing space where your natural tooth was. There are serious side effects to missing teeth — often the surrounding teeth will shift position in an attempt to fill the gap, and your jawbone could break down. Other solutions, like dentures, don’t necessarily prevent the jawbone from breaking down, because it just sits on the surface. A consultation and diagnostic stage is required to determine if our NE Calgary dental implants are right for you. You must be in good general health, have healthy gums and enough bone in your jaw to allow an implant to be placed in the jawbone.
