Dental Implants Calgary
Confused about what dental implants are? An implant is a treatment option dentists used to provide you with a second chance at having a tooth. At Dentalife, we offer dental implants Calgary services.
Why dental implants?
Nothing is as good as the teeth your were born with but dental implants are a close alternative for when you lose one or more teeth.
You may need a dental implants if your teeth need stability or healthy roots and a supporting bone to work properly. A dental implant is an artificial root that provides support.
Implants give your bite strength and stability
With dental implants you can go back to chewing properly and comfortably. If you’ve been struggling with eating in front of other people, implants may be an option.
Dental implants strengthens your teeth and supports the forces you put on your teeth by biting, clenching and grinding.
Do dental implants feel natural?
Although an implant is like a natural tooth, it can’t get cavities. But that doesn’t mean you can stop your usual oral health care regime.
Make sure to still brush and floss daily. They still need to be taken care of in the same way as the rest of your teeth. Although they are not real teeth, dental implants feel and look natural.
What are the steps to get dental implants?
- During the first stage of surgery, a dental implant or anchor is placed into your jawbone beneath the gum tissue. As the area around the implant heals, the implant will bond with the bone to provide strength and stability. It can take several months to heal.
- At the second stage of surgery, the implant is exposed and an abutment is attached to the implant. An abutment is a post that connects the replacement tooth to the implant anchor. In some cases, the first and second stage of implant surgery can be done in one procedure.
- During the third stage of surgery, an artificial replacement tooth is made and is then attached to the abutment. When replacing several teeth or all of your teeth, a fixed bridge may be anchored to two or more dental implants.
A bridge is a dental restoration that replaces one or more missing teeth by spanning an area that has no teeth. The bridge is held firmly in place by dental implants on each side of the missing tooth or teeth.
