If you are facing the loss of one or more teeth, you should be considering your options for tooth replacement. It is widely accepted today that dental implants are the gold standard when it comes to tooth replacement. Many people are concerned about the financial investment of dental implants, and it is true that they are an investment. But as we tell most patients at our Calgary, AB dental clinic, it’s an investment that is well worth making.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jawbone where a tooth is missing. You can get one implant—or an entire mouthful, depending on the number of teeth you are missing. After placement, the implants need anywhere from four to six months to heal and permanently integrate into the jawbone.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Because implants are integrated into the bone, recipients do not have the same worries as denture-wearers in regards to slipping or sliding. You can speak and laugh with confidence.
There are no food restrictions with dental implants; you can bite into the juiciest apple or your favourite cut of meat—and enjoy!
Caring for dental implants is easy. You can brush and floss them just as you would your natural teeth. They cannot develop tooth decay, but you can still get gum disease, so it’s also crucial that you stay current with visits to the dentist for check-ups and cleanings twice a year.
Dental implants look natural because they are customised to match your remaining teeth perfectly.
