Go Dental: Dental Implants in Calgary

One or several missing teeth left untreated for a prolonged period of time can wreak havoc on general dental and oral health. Thankfully, in addition to dentures and bridges, Go Dental delivers comprehensive dental implant services to residents of NE & SE Calgary, which provide a close semblance to natural teeth.

In addition to aesthetic dental reconstruction, dental implants offer permanent relief from a number of oral health complications, such as:

  • Abnormal shifting of remaining teeth to occupy open spaces
  • Jaw bone structure deterioration
  • Speech impediments
  • Chewing discomfort

After a careful and thorough evaluation, our dentists will be able to determine if a dental implant procedure is right for you. From the initial consultation to the final appointment, you can expect our process for dental implants in Calgary to take between 3 to 6 months. Some healing time is needed following the insertion of the titanium rod into your jawbone. For patients planning to undergo the dental implant process, we encourage you to ask us about IV sedation, as this may be a good option for you.

Dental Implant Procedure in Calgary

First and foremost, our dentists will conduct a comprehensive oral examination, consisting of a series of x-rays that include your head, teeth and jaw, as well as a physical inspection, to determine whether a dental implants procedure is the appropriate option.

Generally speaking, depending on the severity of each individual case, and to ensure your implants fit properly, this procedure is carried out over several appointments.

  • During your first appointment at Go Dental in Calgary, a dental implant is inserted into the jawbone below the gum tissue.
  • Next, we will place the abutment, which is a titanium post that serves to connect your new tooth to the implant once fused to the bone.
  • A temporary tooth is then attached to the implant while awaiting the fabrication of your new artificial tooth.
  • During your second appointment, the permanent artificial tooth is fused to the abutment. More often than not, patients prefer porcelain artificial teeth due to their sturdiness, and ability to blend in nicely with surrounding natural teeth. In the case of several missing teeth in a row, for patients not willing to replace each with individual dental implants, a fixed bridge is anchored to dental implants, and can create the semblance of a row of natural-looking teeth.

Dental Implant Materials

The dental implants themselves are made from titanium. Once fused to the jawbone, they act as artificial roots to anchor your new artificial teeth in place.

The artificial teeth are usually manufactured using porcelain or ceramic. These materials provide the closest match to the look, feel, and functionality of natural teeth.

Am I Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

In general, if you are in good physical health, with healthy gums, and an adequate amount of bone structure in your jaw to hold the implant, dental implants may be a good solution for you.

Your dentist in Calgary, however, is best qualified to determine whether or not the dental implant procedure is the best option for you. Contact Go Dental’s Calgary office and our team will provide you with personalized and detailed information regarding the treatment, as well as outline any other alternatives that may be available.
