The top reasons to get dental implants in Calgary NE

What are dental implants Calgary NE and why should you consider them? Dental implants are an effective way to replace one or more missing teeth. Implants resemble natural teeth, making it possible to enjoy the look of your smile again without sacrificing the security of your bite.

They’re designed to withstand stress and pressure from chewing, biting, and clenching without breaking down over time. At Cornerstone Family Dental, we offer the highest quality dental implants that can last a lifetime with the right dental care and oral hygiene routine.

What are dental implants exactly?

Dental implants are highly recommend when at least one tooth is missing. If the missing space(s) is not filled, the teeth surrounding the space often drift. The opposing teeth in the other arch tend to erupt further into the oral cavity (hypereruption) which can alter your bite in a negative way. Additionally, bone erosion can occur in the missing tooth/teeth area, and even changes in speech might occur.

The popularity of implants has increased steadily over the years. Main reasons: they are strong, reliable, and look like natural teeth.

Dental implants are designed to replace the root of a missing tooth and can be used to support crowns, bridges, or dentures. The root-form implant is the most common type and basically consists of three main components: 

1. Implant Screw

This part of the implant is made of titanium and is surgically placed in the bone. Titanium is accepted by the body extremely well and fuses with the bone (called Osseointegration) during the healing process. 

2. Abutment

This is a metal collar that attaches to the top of the implant screw and is the base for a crown, bridge, or denture.

3. Crown 

The crown is the manufactured tooth that fits on top of the abutment. Bridges and dentures can also be secured to the abutment. The placement of the crown, bridge, or denture is the final step of the implant process.

What is the dental implants treatment process?

At Cornerstone Family Dental, provider of dental implant treatments in Calgary NE, the process for getting dental implants starts with a consultation in person. During the consultation, we will take X-rays and impressions of the teeth in your mouth. Next, we will discuss all the possible solutions with you and create a dental implant treatment plan that is specific to your needs. Dr. Peter Watson: We will provide clear information in regards to the treatment process, time-involvement, and cost, so everything is completely explained in advance. Once treatment starts, we will place an implant in your jaw bone in order to make space for the tooth or teeth being replaced. This implant is left in place for three months while it heals and settles into the jaw bone. Then, after three months have passed, a temporary crown is fitted onto the implant and a new tooth is placed on top of this crown. After six months, another appointment will be scheduled during which time permanent crowns are fitted onto each tooth to complete the entire dental implant treatment process.

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants typically last around 15-20 years, but this does depend on how well you care for them. Brushing your teeth regularly and maintaining a healthy diet, can contribute to keeping your mouth healthy. Some of our patients reported that their dental implants are lasting longer than expected.

In general, dental implants are a very durable and reliable solution to replace missing teeth.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

Dental implants are one of the most successful and natural-looking teeth options available today. With dental implants, you can enjoy a lifetime of healthy, comfortable smiles free from pain. They’re also far more stable than dentures or other prosthetics, which means they can withstand greater amounts of chewing pressure and won’t slip around as easily.

Plus, with dental implants you don’t have to worry about food getting caught between your teeth or around removable appliances like dentures. One of the best things about dental implants is that they look just like your own teeth—so much so that no one will be able to tell them apart!

How much do dental implants cost?

It is important to note that dental implants are not a one size fits all type of procedure. The cost can vary depending on the type and number of implants, as well as the dental lab used for your individualized implant.

It will also depend on what kind of tooth is being replaced, whether it’s a molar or premolar, as well as how many teeth need replacement. For example, if you are missing two front teeth and one back tooth, there would be three implants needed.
