Full dental implants service available in Calgary, AB
While conventional dentures and dental bridges are still good solutions for many people, dental implants have become a popular choice for tooth replacement in Calgary, AB and across the globe. Most dental implant cases can be handled start to finish at Lake Chaparral Dental Care.
Each of your own teeth has roots that extend into the jawbone, giving the crown (the visible portion of the tooth) necessary stability for chewing. A dental implant is a substitution for the root of a missing tooth. In a precise, carefully-planned oral surgery, this small screw-shaped device is implanted into bone. Because the material is biocompatible, bone fuses with the implant, establishing strong support for a restoration.
This technique is commonly used to replace individual missing teeth. After giving the implant several months to integrate with bone, a small incision is made in the gum, and an abutment or post is inserted into the implant. Then, the implant is finished with a cemented or screw-retained crown. This results in an artificial tooth with restored function, that looks natural. In addition, the implant provides vital stimulation that helps to keep facial bone from diminishing.
Implants may also be placed to provide stability to a full denture or to anchor a bridge. If you are missing multiple teeth, Dr. Palka Sawhney Sharma will talk with you about these options.
