Dental Implants in NW, Calgary

Replacing missing teeth is important, and not just to restore appearance. Gaps between teeth are an area where plaque and tartar-causing bacteria like to settle.  If this bacteria is not removed, it can quickly cause cavities, tooth decay, or gum disease.

Teeth also shift with time when there is not something to maintain the space where the missing tooth is present. Teeth naturally will move into this space which can cause issues with biting, sensitivity, and overall general function of the jaw.

One way to close these gaps and replace the teeth that are missing is through dental implants. Dentists look to dental implants as a better choice than bridges and dentures in some cases because they are a more permanent solution.

Why Would I Need Dental Implants?

Calgary patients often come to us with missing teeth for a variety of reasons.

People can lose teeth for many reasons, including:

    • Oral diseases
    • Teeth grinding
    • Tooth decay
  • Injury

If you are missing any teeth, you should speak to your dentist to see if you’re a good candidate for dental implants. People receiving dental implants must have healthy gums and a strong jaw bone in order for the implants to work correctly.

Your dentist can examine your teeth and mouth to determine if you meet these criteria, and if so, you can move forward with treatment.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

Once the implants have been placed in your bone, they become a part of your body. The implants are composed of 3 parts: the implant screw, the abutment and the manufactured crown.

The implant screw is made from biocompatible metal like titanium. It is surgically implanted in your jawbone and acts as a replacement for the tooth root.

The abutment is also made from titanium, and it joins the implant screw to the manufactured crown.

The manufactured crown is the part that looks like a natural tooth. It is installed on the abutment and looks like your natural teeth.

Once healed, dental implants are every bit as strong as natural teeth.

Dental Implant Procedures

Once your dentist has determined you are a good candidate for receiving dental implants, they will decide the best way to place them.

Our office offers a few different options for dental implant surgery. Our experienced doctors perform guided surgery which is non-invasive and a great option for many candidates.

We take pride in ensuring you understand your options and our dedicated team is happy to answer any questions or address any concerns at the time of your consultation and with every step along the way.

Dental Implants in Calgary

Calgary dentists will treat your implants as real teeth when it comes to preventative care. You must still brush and floss normally and go to the dentist for regular cleanings and exams.

Dear Patients,

We are pleased to WELCOME YOU BACK! We are practicing SAFE DENTISTRY!

Rest assured that we have taken steps above what was required. After all, your health is our highest priority. We are finally OPEN and look forward to seeing you again soon!

OUR NEW HEALTH AND SAFETY PROTOCOL:

  • When we speak with you regarding your appointment, we will be asking you additional screening questions. Patients who exhibit any symptoms will need to postpone their treatment.
  • When you arrive to your appointment, please wait in your car until your appointment time and bring as little as possible into the office with you.
  • If you have a mask or face covering, we encourage you to wear one to your appointment.
  • We will ask that you sanitize/wash your hands with soap and water upon entering the office and before leaving.
  • There will be a consent form for patients to sign upon arrival and we want you to know that the guidelines in place currently have staff member signing off on a daily consent that ensures they are ready and prepared to provide treatment in the safest possible way.

We want to assure everyone that our office takes the safety and health of our patients, their families, team members and doctors very seriously. Although our operations will be slightly different today than they were previously, we are excited to finally welcome you all back in a slow and safe manner.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time of transition to the new normal.

Sincerely,
Your Dental Team
