Replace missing teeth with a dental implants procedure in Calgary, AB

Replace Missing Teeth with a Dental Implants Procedure in Calgary, AB Area

Missing teeth can make it difficult to speak and chew your food, and many patients may be embarrassed by the look of their smile. A dental implant procedure offers the only option that can replace the entire structure of your tooth. Dr. Palka offers patients in Calgary, AB, dental implants to restore full functionality to their mouth.

Dental Implants protect your oral health

Every tooth in your mouth serves a special function as you eat and speak. When one of them is missing, it’s harder to chew your food properly, and it adds extra stress to your jaw. This can lead to indigestion and difficulty absorbing nutrients, as well as TMJ issues that cause jaw pain and headaches. Dental implants can restore functionality by replacing a single tooth with a crown, several teeth in a row with a dental bridge, or support complete dentures to replace a full arch of teeth.

Dental implants are placed directly into your jawbone to provide stimulation that prevents bone resorption. They will preserve a youthful look for your face, as well as prevent your other teeth from shifting, which can increase the risk of decay, cracked teeth, and additional tooth loss. Most patients that are healthy enough for surgery can have dental implants placed.

What to expect from your procedure

Dr. Palka will evaluate your teeth and jaw to determine the best treatment plan for you, and she can work with you from start to finish without referring you to an outside specialist in most cases. If you need an extraction, your gums will need some time to heal before the implant is placed. During the procedure, she will cut into your gums and use a drill to make a socket for your implant, and place it directly into your jaw bone. Once it’s had a couple of months to heal, she can take impressions of your mouth to send to the dental lab to create your prosthetic.
