Calgary Dental Implants
What are Dental Implants?
If you’ve had a tooth extracted or have several missing teeth, you may be able to restore your smile permanently with dental implants! They are a unique solution that can help you speak and smile with confidence again!
Before treatment, it is important that your dentist go through a full examination with you and discuss your options and the treatment in detail.
How do dental implants work?
A dental implant is made from titanium, a biocompatible material that essentially fuses with your jaw bone after the implant is placed. This process (osseointegration) takes several months to complete, but a temporary tooth replacement can be placed during the healing period.
The unique characteristics of the fusing process give dental implants their long term stability. Once it is complete, a permanent dental crown is placed and the treatment is finished.
A night guard will often be recommended to protect your implant crown and to ensure its longevity. You will need to maintain regular hygiene visits and practice good dental hygiene at home.
For placement of dental implants, Ambiance Dental refers patients to surgical periodontal specialists that we work cloesely with
