Have you got missing teeth? At Concept Dentistry, we offer you several options for treatment, including full or partial dentures, and dental implants. But many of our Calgary patients aren’t sure what dental implants are or why they might you choose them.
Dental implants are titanium metal screws inserted into your jaw to function as a prosthetic tooth. They come in removed and fixable forms and can provide an extremely natural look. They can be used as anchors for crowns and bridges, or to simply fill in a small gap between your natural teeth.
When a tooth dies or falls out, the root is no longer anchored in your jawbone. Because your teeth stimulate your jaw, helping it to maintain its strength, when you lose a tooth, your jaw begins to gradually deteriorate. This is a problem because it means that any other teeth near the gap can start to loosen, shift, or fall out. Gum recession and bone loss aren’t pretty or comfortable! Dental implants are not just cosmetic, they are also an important element of preventative and restorative tooth care.
Because implants are so similar to natural teeth in both appearance and behaviour, you need to take care of them just like all your other teeth. Be sure to brush twice a day and floss at least once a day, and keep up with your regular checkups with your Forest Lawn/Inglewood dentist at Concept Dentistry.
If you’re considering implants, be sure to come in for a consultation. We’ll assess how healthy your mouth, teeth, and gums are, and make sure that your jawbone is dense enough to support your implants. We’ll also make sure that your gums are healthy enough for an implant. We want to make sure that the right treatment is the one that you receive, so we’ll take the time to answer any questions you might have.
In the end, implants, if right for your situation, are a brief surgery resulting in natural-looking teeth to help you to eat, drink, speak, and smile with renewed confidence and comfort.
