Dental Implants in Calgary
A dental implant is the most advanced esthetic and functional solution for replacing a missing tooth. Invented in the early 1980’s dental implants have become a very popular procedure to help patients get back to the function and esthetics they previously had.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are placed into the bone to replicate the roots of teeth. Research has proven that titanium is one of the few materials that human bone fuses to. When a dental implant fuses to the bone, we call it osseointegration. They are ideal to replace single missing teeth or provide support or a fixed solution for dental appliances such as dentures.
Implants are a long-term solution. They can last a lifetime when properly placed and cared for over time, unlike traditional tooth-supported dental bridges which only last 10-15 years. With dental Implants eat your favorite foods again! Taste and enjoy the foods you love without hesitation. You can bite naturally and eat virtually anything you want with dental implants. It also perfectly restores the function of your natural tooth you lost. even if the initial cost is slightly higher than other options. An implant will never decay or need root canal treatment, is easy to brush and floss, and feels and acts just like the natural tooth that was there.
Patients with dentures can particularly benefit from implants, since implants can greatly improve the stability of the denture and improve the comfort and fit of a denture.
Dr. Greg Broyde at East Village Dental Calgary provides a multitude of implant services to help all Calgarians improve their bite and overall well-being.
